RCVS issues final call for retention fees

21st May 2010

The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) has warned members that they risk being removed from the register by missing this month’s final deadline for retention fee payments.

Veterinary surgeons must be registered with the RCVS to practise legally in the UK and have until Saturday May 29th at the latest to submit their fees.

According to the regulator, approximately 1,200 of its members are yet to make the retention payment this year.

“Registration with the RCVS is a prerequisite for membership of the Veterinary Defence Society (VDS) and the provision of professional indemnity insurance,” added Bill Mavir, chairman of the VDS.

Those who fail to make the payment by May 29th will have their names taken off and face an additional fee if they wish to be restored to the register at a later date.

According to the RCVS, payments can be made by credit card, bank transfer or cheque.

The organisation was established in 1844 by Royal Charter and is the governing body of the veterinary profession in the UK.
