Julia established The Mewes Veterinary Clinic in 1996 having worked in Mid Sussex for 7 years since qualifying.
She recognised that pet owners needed a new clinic where time was allocated to address all their needs and concerns, hence, unlike some other clinics we never double book slots and our 15 minute appointments were born.
Julia also wanted to provide a personal service with continuity of care which became known as our 'One-Pet-One-Vet' policy, whereby we register you with one vet and, where practicable, your pet sees the same vet at each visit for continuity of care (except for emergencies or where your vet is absent).
Julia has developed her team into its current top class status, including achieving Training Practice and RCVS (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons) Practice Standards Tier 2 status.
As an accredited practice, we have passed an rigorous inspection carried out by an experienced veterinary surgeon focusing on a range of areas, including hygiene, health and safety, clinical governance and the facilities we provide, to name just a few of the many criteria. The practice will be subject to spot checks and certify annually that we are continuing to meet the necessary standards, so we have to keep on our toes.
RCVS accreditation means that as a client you can rest assured that our practice offers a high quality of care – in those bits of the practice you can see – and those that you can’t!
We are very proud to be awarded with this accreditation.
