Welcome to our RCVS Accredited Practice
Most of us see our pets as members of the family and like every member of the family we want to be sure that they receive only the best medical treatment possible. How can we be sure this is what they are receiving?
The RCVS (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons) have formed something called the Practice Standards Scheme which is a voluntary quality assurance programme. To be accredited, practices must pass a rigorous inspection which is carried out by an experienced and independent veterinary surgeon. Areas covered include hygiene; health and safety; the facilities and equipment; staff training and other criteria.
Thanks to this, the RCVS can offer reassurance that those practice premises which it accredits as part of the Practice Standards Scheme meet these strict standards.
The Meopham Veterinary Surgery has passed an independent inspection from the RCVS and is now proud to be part of the RCVS Practice Standards Scheme as a Small Animal Accredited General Practice.
What does this mean for you?
An RCVS accreditation means peace of mind for you, quality care for your animals, as well as regular inspection for the practice.
