Logo - Hawick Vets is an RCVS Accredited PracticeTo be accredited to Core Standards, a veterinary practice must, among other things:

  • Put in place arrangements for 24-hour emergency cover for patients (this might be done by the practice itself, or through arrangements with another practice or emergency service provider)
  • Have appropriately trained staff for work undertaken (veterinary qualifications and insurance are checked)
  • Comply with minimum standards of cleanliness and hygiene
  • Make clients aware of arrangements for checking and monitoring patients kept in overnight
  • Ensure clients are given estimates of costs of treatments and consent to procedures undertaken
  • Have basic diagnostic and surgical equipment for the work undertaken - these must be installed and maintained in accordance with health and safety requirements
  • Have an effective policy for communication with clients

By having these policies in place, we at Hawick Veterinary Practice can ensure that your pets receive a high standard of care and treatment.
