RCVS Accredited

We are delighted to report that New Malden Vets is an accredited small animal general practice.

The scheme is currently a voluntary one, but indicates a standard which all practices are encouraged to achieve.

The scheme is described by the RCVS as follows:

“Pets are often treated as members of the family and owners rightly want to be sure they receive excellent medical treatment. But how can you be sure?

The RCVS Practice Standards Scheme (PSS) is a voluntary initiative to accredit veterinary practices in the UK. Through setting standards and carrying out regular inspections, the Scheme aims to promote and maintain the highest standards of veterinary care.

It offers peace of mind to clients of accredited practices and a more informed choice to the animal-owning public.

To become accredited, practices volunteer for rigorous inspection every four years and will have met a range of minimum standards including hygiene, 24-hour emergency cover, staff training, certain types of equipment and cost estimation procedures”
