Practice standards

The Ark Veterinary Practice is accredited to the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Practice Standards Scheme (PSS). The scheme aims to promote and maintain the highest standards of veterinary care and facilities. This is achieved through setting standards and carrying out regular inspections. It offers peace of mind to clients of accredited practices that their veterinary surgeons and nurses are properly qualified.

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

The Ark Veterinary Practice is proud to be part of this scheme and we strive to provide the highest quality care.
