The benefits of becoming a BESTPRACTICE accredited clinic or hospital
For your clients
By gaining BESTPRACTICE accreditation you're demonstrating to your clients that you believe in the quality of all aspects of your clinic, including an audit every two years to ensure you maintain your high standards.
For your practice
We're now operating in a very controlled legal and ethical veterinary environment, which is becoming increasingly complicated. With the pace of changes being introduced - such as the HSNO regulations, veterinary registration and continuing professional development requirements by the Veterinary Council of New Zealand (and ACVM requirements) - it has now become very difficult for the individual veterinarian (clinic) to keep up to date.
Veterinary Council of New Zealand Minimum Practising Standards
There is now a push from the New Zealand Veterinary Council to implement minimum standards for veterinary practice. These standards will be based on and included in the BESTPRACTICE standards.
