About Three Counties Equine Hospital LLP
Three Counties Equine Hospital is proud to be an approved member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Practice (RCVS) Standards Scheme.
As an accredited practice, we have passed an inspection carried out by an experienced veterinary surgeon specially appointed by the RCVS, which has focused on a range of areas, including hygiene, health and safety, clinical governance and the facilities we provide.
The practice is re-inspected every four years and we will be subject to periodic spot-checks in the meantime.
The Practice Standards Scheme is a voluntary initiative – not all practices are part of it yet. RCVS accreditation means that, as a client, you can rest assured that our practice offers a high quality of care – not only in those parts of the practice which you can see, but also 'behind the scenes'.
The practice has also been accredited as an RCVS Equine Hospital, which means that it meets a high standard of veterinary care. In addition to complying with Core Standards, such as health and safety, hygiene and legal requirements, we also have access to diagnostic facilities, can provide continual nursing and veterinary care for in-patients 24 hours a day, maintain and improve our clinical standards through an ongoing process of monitoring and review, have a range of specialist equipment such as ECG and ultrasound and have met rigorous standards of hygiene throughout the premises. In 2008 a new state-of-the-art imaging suite was constructed which houses digital radiography and nuclear scintigraphy.
