Practice standards:

Quote from Practice Standards Award Assessment (20/7/17):

“Practice description: This was a lovely well established market town practice with a real culture to provide a good level of veterinary care. The premises were in good order and I was most impressed by the new operation theatre. The outside of the building was lovely and was very much a traditional vets. The premises were in a very tidy state and every area was immaculately clean.

Assessor’s feedback: I was most impressed how every member of the team had embraced the RCVS award process and they were so willing to help on the days with the many questions. In particular I would like to thank Sharon Franklin and Julian Cosser for their great help on the day of the award. There was a great family atmosphere to the practice.”
