Practice Standards Scheme. 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 regulatory function of the RCVS has always meant that users of veterinary services could be assured that their veterinary surgeon was properly qualified and fit to practise.

the Scheme aims to promote and maintain the highest standards of veterinary care. . It offers peace of mind to clients of accredited practices and more informed choice to the animal owning public.

They may also be subject to spot-checks between inspections.
