Practice Standards Scheme
KirksVets are proud to be an approved member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Practice Standards Scheme.
As an accredited practice, we have passed an inspection carried out by an experienced veterinary surgeon focusing on a range of areas, including hygiene, health and safety, clinical governance and the facilities we provide, to name just a few of the many criteria.
The practice will be reinspected every four years and we will be subject to spot checks in the meantime, so we have to keep on our toes.
The Practice Standards Scheme is a voluntary initiative – not all practices are part of it yet. RCVS accreditation means that as a client you can rest assured that our practice offers a high quality of care – in those bits of the practice you can see – and those that you can’t.
This practice has been accredited as a tier two, RCVS General Practice which means that, in addition to complying with core standards, such as health and safety, hygiene and legal requirements and the provision of 24 hour cover, we also have access to laboratory facilities for diagnostic testing, have a system for monitoring the outcome of treatments and show commitment to the education and training of our staff.
