Practice Standards Scheme Surgery at BSAVA Congress

21 March 2013

During BSAVA Congress (4-7 April, Birmingham) the RCVS will be offering free one-to-one, 45-minute appointments with a Practice Standards Scheme Inspector.

If you’re thinking of joining the Scheme, need help with an upcoming inspection or want to ensure you’re meeting the new Code of Professional Conduct requirement and practising to Core Standards, please contact Fiona Harcourt ( to book your place. Places are limited, on a first-come, first-served basis, and will be available at various times and dates across Congress.

The PSS Surgery will take place in the NIA, where delegates can also visit the RCVS stand (106) for information and advice. 

Clinical governance is now part of the Code of Professional Conduct for both veterinary nurses and veterinary surgeons, but there is no need to get in a tangle about it.

On Saturday 6 April, at 11.05am, we will be running a session called ‘Clinical governance, how is it relevant to me?’ in Hall 7a of the ICC. RCVS Treasurer, Dr Bradley Viner, and RCVS Veterinary Investigator, Pam Mosedale, will help you to unravel what clinical governance means, and give some practical examples of what you can do in practice to meet our requirement. Coffee and pastries will be available from 10.45am.

In addition, visitors to the stand can collect a free ‘earphone un-tangler’ to keep the relevant supporting guidance URL close at hand.

There is also the chance to in a Kindle Fire in our ‘untangle it’ competition.
