We have had a nerve racking day today
–we had a spot inspection at the Irvine branch by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons to ensure we were maintaining the standards set under the RCVS Practice Standard Scheme which we passed
The RCVS Practice Standard Scheme is a voluntary initiative to accredit veterinary practices in the UK. The practice must undergo a thorough inspection every 4 years and is subject to spot inspections at any given time.
The standards include, but are not limited to, full compliance with Health and Safety, maintaining cleanliness, infection control, and sterility; the continuance of professional development by all qualified staff to ensure that skills and knowledge are kept up to date with all the latest advances; equipment and premises are maintained to high standards; that the storage, supply and administration of all POM-V/POM products meet the legal requirements governed by the Veterinary Medicines Directorate.
As a summary without all the official language, we meet the high standards set by the RCVS to provide a safe, caring and dedicated veterinary service for your pet.
