RCVS Knowledge's mission

To advance the quality of veterinary care for the benefit of animals, the public, and society.

Over the next five years we want to 

  • Advance the use of evidence-based veterinary medicine in veterinary practice
  • Inspire quality improvement in veterinary practice
  • Build upon our heritage, and invest in our future.

To meet these aims we will

  • Champion the use of an evidence based approach to veterinary medicine
  • Support the development of a culture of continuous improvement
  • Build upon existing skills and knowledge
  • Make available our knowledge, expertise, and assets for the benefit of the broader public.

In doing so we will

  • Collaborate and partner with other groups from within and outside of the veterinary sector
  • Cultivate networks to help promote understanding of issues in the veterinary profession, and what may be an effective way forward
  • Develop our resources and target them for use by frontline veterinary professionals.

How we will achieve this is set out in our Strategic Plan (PDF 237kb)
