Because we believe we aim for best practice and gold standard service we decided to voluntarily put ourselves forward to be assessed by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons to achieve the New Practice Standards Awards that were introduced in 2016.

There are 5 categories;

  • Team and Professional Responsibly
  • In-Patient care
  • Client Service
  • Out-patient Consultation and
  • Diagnostics

To achieve these awards requires an Assessor to be on site examining every part of the veterinary practice, looking at every area within the practice and talking to team members about what they do. They assess if we achieve the required level of care and service that warrants being an Award holder in the above categories.

We put ourselves forward for all 5 Awards, and are pleased and proud to announce that Animates achieved ‘Outstanding’ in all 5 categories. We are the only veterinary practice in Lincolnshire to achieve this and the 3rd practice in the country, so this is a huge accomplishment and means that all the work and effort that the Team put in on a day to day basis has been recognised.

We were invited along to the BSAVA Congress held in Birmingham for a special Award Ceremony. Pictured above are some members of the Animates team being presented with the Awards by the president of the RCVS.

So what does this mean for you and your pet?
It means you can be assured you and your pet are receiving the best possible service with a competent and caring team in a fully equipped and professional practice environment.
Bring 2 or more pets at the same time for their annual vaccinations and health checks and receive a 10% discount off their vaccinations.

Animates Veterinary Clinic has applied to be assessed by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) for the Practice Standards Scheme Award in Client Service. As part of the assessment process we are required to survey a sample of our clients regarding their experience with our practice.

The following on line questionnaire can be completed in under 2 minutes and is critical to us achieving the Client Experience Award. Below is detailed the link which will take you straight to the questionnaire. Your answers will be collected anonymously and will be used by the RCVS to assess client service at Animates. The collated data will be shared with us to help us improve the service we provide.

We would be very grateful if you would participate in this survey and would like to thank you in advance for your time. Below are detailed the links which will take you straight to the survey.
