A new video released by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) sets out how the Colleges activities benefit animal and public welfare by helping to make the profession the best it can be.

The video, entitled ‘We are here for you’, features interviews with College staff explaining their roles and how what they do aids the profession and ultimately improves animal health and welfare.

Lizzie Lockett, RCVS Director of Communications, explains: “Improving animal health and welfare by advancing the ethical, professional and clinical standards of the veterinary profession is at the heart of all our work, and this video sets out the myriad ways in which we do this.

“For example, we set the standards for and monitor the quality of veterinary education; we hold Registers of those vets and veterinary nurses who are qualified to practise; we set professional standards for vets and veterinary nurses; and we help practices raise their standards through our Practice Standards Scheme. And that’s just a snapshot of our role!”

The video is available to view on the RCVS YouTube channel (
