RCVS Standards Scheme

In 2005, The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons started a scheme whereby veterinary businesses could choose to be independently inspected and accredited. This inspection and accreditation process is continual and is designed to reassure members of the public that the veterinary practice they have chosen for their pet maintains high standards of service and cleanliness and conforms to all relevant UK regulations.

We are proud to say that Westway Vets have achieved Accredited Practice status.

Please ask at reception for a copy of the RCVS leaflet detailing this scheme further or check out the RCVS website.
