Because we believe that 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 they have introduced this year.
There are 5 categories;

  • Team and Professional Responsibility
  • 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 had the assessment for the first 2 back in August 2016; ‘Team and Professional Responsibly’ and ‘Diagnostics’. We were assessed in November for the remaining 3 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 provide and put in on a day to day basis has been recognised.

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.

The Deepings Business Club have an awards ceremony and gala dinner to celebrate businesses local to the Deepings. There are 14 categories, 12 of which are nominated and voted by the public. Animates were nominated for the 'PRACTICAL EXCELLENCE' category of which we won!!!
A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who voted for us. We are absolutely thrilled to receive the award and it means a huge amount to us in knowing that it was all down to our clients for taking the time to vote.
