BCVSp’s aim  is to advance the education of the public and the wellbeing of animals through the development, understanding and application of veterinary specialist care.


Supporting Patients, People and the Profession


BCVSp helps the public to make informed choices on veterinary care for their animals, to understand options that are available to them and to find out how to access veterinary specialist care through the referral process.

BCVSp members are eligible to work in UK and are accredited by the European Board of Veterinary Specialists (EBVS) and the American Veterinary Medical Association Board of Veterinary Specialists (AVMA-ABVS) or the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS).

BCVSp members play a vital role in veterinary education through training of future Veterinary Specialists.
