RCVS’s Practice Standards Group has given BCVSp the go ahead to work on a detailed proposal for a strand recognising Multidisciplinary Veterinary Specialist Hospitals. Over the next few weeks, members will receive a series of polls relating to the content of this proposal. Volunteers are also needed to work on detailed criteria for each discipline encompassed by the scheme. If you are interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org. The target for launch of this strand is 2020 and both equine and small animal hospitals will be included. Entry to the strand will require outstanding achievement in most module’s award points. Hospitals aiming to seek recognition as a Multidisciplinary Veterinary Specialist Hospital should consider starting work on awards points immediately.
