The RCVS Practice Standards Scheme (PSS) is a voluntary initiative to accredit veterinary practices in the UK. Through setting standards and carrying out regular assessments, the Scheme aims to promote and maintain the highest standards of veterinary care.
Here is a little information about it, About the Practice Standards Scheme - Animal Owners (rcvs.org.uk)
We have been an accredited practice for many years, and we are very proud of this achievement. We had our routine, 4-year inspection earlier this week. It was just another busy day at the surgery, like any other but had the added pressure of somebody overseeing the practice. The assessor was brilliant and kind. She conducted her work around the team and their patients, not disrupting their day. She checked everything from health and safety, hygiene, and patient care amongst other things.
I have to say we are so proud of our team; they were amazing! They worked hard and answered her queries, showing great knowledge and passion for their work. The assessor praised our team.
Now we just need to wait for our report and official confirmation that we have maintained these high standards. We will keep you posted!
