RCVS

At Park Issa Vets we understand that your pets are often treated as members of your family and as such should be offered the services and level of care that a family member deserves. We also understand that farmers and owners of large animals expect our care to be of an exacting standard and that is why we volunteered for accreditation by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons or RCVS. This gives our clients the confidence to know that our Hospital and General Practices have been inspected independently to ensure that they match the stringent requirements set by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, our governing body. This is your guarantee that your Veterinary Hospital meets the highest standards for veterinary premises in the UK.

The standards cover a wide range of areas from the hygiene of the reception area, to nursing staff being on duty 24hrs a day every day of the year; from providing an isolation nursing care area, to monitoring anaesthetised patients. Both the Park Issa and New Foundry practices are proud to be approved members 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 few of the many criteria. The practice is re-inspected 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.

Tier-specific explanations

RCVS-Core_Standards_newThe New Foundry Vet practice at Johnstown has been accredited to RCVS Core Standards. This means that our compliance with legal and health and safety requirements, our employment of staff that are fully and appropriately trained for the work that we carry out and the fact that we have appropriate diagnostic and surgical equipment have all been independently certified. We also provide arrangements for 24-hour emergency cover for patients, meet hygiene standards and have a written policy for client communication.

RCVS-Farm-Animal-Practice-newThe Park Issa Vet practice at Oswestry has been accredited as an RCVS Farm Animal General Practice. This 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 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.

RCVS-Small-Animal-Hospital-newThe Park Issa Vet practice at Oswestry has also been accredited as an RCVS Veterinary Hospital, which means that it meets a high standard of veterinary care. In addition to complying with Core Standards, such as health and safety, rigorous standards of hygiene and other legal requirements, we also have in-house diagnostic facilities and provide continual nursing and veterinary care for in-patients 24 hours a day. We maintain and improve our clinical standards through an ongoing process of monitoring and review and have a range of specialist equipment such as ECG and ultrasound.
