A CAMBRIDGESHIRE veterinary practice has been awarded a top accreditation for its high standards in pet care and clinical hygiene.
Paddons Vets in Wisbech has achieved RCVS Small Animal General Practice accreditation, in a scheme accrediting practices across the UK.
Around half the practices in the UK are accredited under the voluntary Practice Standards Scheme (PSS), which quality assures practices and their facilities.
For this accreditation, the Paddons team showed total compliance with all the legal and health and safety requirements necessary for the practice’s work.
This means that the practice maintains excellent standards of hygiene, client and patient care. Correct procedures are also in place for areas including infection control, anaesthesia and surgery, inpatient care, diagnostic imaging and laboratory control.
The Paddons team consists of five veterinary surgeons, five veterinary nurses, six receptionists and two animal nursing assistants.
Head Veterinary Nurse Jennifer Venni said receiving news of the accreditation was an official acknowledgement of the team’s pride in how the practice looks after its staff, clients and their pets.
She added: “We are so pleased to have gained this RCVS accreditation. A lot of work went in to ensuring we were over and above each of the criteria required.
“We are proud to uphold a reputation of being professional, reliable and caring to all of our pet patients.
“Some of the team has worked at Paddons for more than 20 years which really proves that this is a great place to work and this dedication underlines the commitment we have to our clients and the community.
“We will be looking to enter more industry awards in the future to reinforce our practice expertise.”
The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Practice Standards Scheme was launched in 2005. Membership of the scheme is recognised by the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD).
