Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS)

We draw on a wealth of regulatory experience to assist you with the disciplinary process and help to achieve the appropriate balance between prompt resolution and protecting your registration.

The RCVS is the statutory regulator responsible for approximately 35,000 veterinary surgeons and nurses. The RCVS deals with fewer than a thousand complaints every year but for those involved it can be a stressful and anxious time.

We can assist with:

  • Investigatory interviews
  • Initial responses to a complaint
  • Preliminary Investigation Committee
  • Disciplinary Committee hearings
  • Applications for restoration to the register
