RCVS HQ to temporarily relocate

The headquarters of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) is to move temporarily, ahead of its permanent relocation later in the year.

From Monday, 26 February 2024, RCVS' temporary headquarters will be at 2 Waterhouse Square, Holborn, London. This is within walking distance of its current rented offices at The Cursitor, Chancery Lane.

RCVS have been based at The Cursitor since February 2022, following the sale of its Westminster premises the previous March.

However, unforeseen circumstances relating to workspace rental company WeWork filing for bankruptcy means The Cursitor will no longer operate as a WeWork space. The new temporary location is still owned by WeWork.

RCVS anticipates that it will move into its permanent location at Hardwick Street, Clerkenwell, later on in the year.


RCVS and VMD publish POM-V guidance

The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) and the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD) have published joint guidance on prescribing prescription-only veterinary medicines (POM-Vs).

Developed following the college's 'under care' review, the guidance aims to answer the most frequently asked questions from veterinary surgeons working in clinical practice, including what to write in the clinical notes when prescribing POM-Vs for ongoing treatment and how to prescribe controlled drugs for chronic conditions.

The answers, which have been mutually agreed by the RCVS and the VMD, can be found on the RCVS website.
