Hospital Status


Northwest Surgeons has been awarded hospital status in the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Practice Standards Scheme.

The scheme is designed to ensure that you, the consumer can rest assured that the highest standards apply to our hospital and our work. Around half the veterinary practices in the UK are registered, with those offering the most comprehensive services being recognised as hospitals.

The scheme examines every part of what we do, from customer experience, equipment and facilities right through to clinical governance. In a hospital with over 70 colleagues, that’s a lot of work to do to meet the high standards.

In our brand transition from Northwest Surgeons to Northwest Veterinary Specialists we feel accreditation such as this is really important. Our new name reflects the range of specialist services we offer and our accreditation gives confidence to our pet owners that we really do offer the very best to their pet.
