Paragon Veterinary Referrals in West Yorkshire has been give an 'outstanding' rating in four different RCVS Practice Standards Scheme Awards: Team and Professional Responsibility, Diagnostic Service, Inpatient Service and Emergency and Critical Care Service.

The RCVS assessor’s report said: "The premises are genuinely state of the art, with all the space and equipment needed to provide a full multi-discipline referral service. 

"The outstanding feature of this visit was the level of inpatient care, which is impressive with dedicated team leaders and thorough handovers for continuity of care, and the depth of knowledge of the clinical and nursing teams.

"Special mention must be made of infection control and inpatient modules in which all the award points available were obtained."

The assessor's report added: "You have all produced a centre to be proud of, and the feeling of pride and commitment of the team, came across very clearly. I wish you every success as your reputation grows."

Rebecca Lunn, operations co-ordinator at Paragon, said: "Pets always come first at Paragon so to receive four “outstanding” awards from the RCVS is a great compliment and achievement.

"Naturally we are delighted. It’s a real tribute to our entire team and our determination to deliver quality care, excellent service and a compassionate approach to ensure the best possible treatment for our animals.

"To achieve this, we have invested heavily, not only in the best, highly-experienced diplomates but also the most advanced specialist equipment within veterinary science.

"That level of commitment will continue on all fronts as we strive to be the very best we can be."
