Our principles

Our 6 principles are at the core of everything we do. We believe our values are what set us apart, and what make IVC Evidensia such a great group to join.

Belief in people

The success of a practice is down to the individuals that work there. That's why we invest in continuous professional development for all IVC Evidensia staff.

Investment in your practice

We invest our money in refurbishments, facilities, equipment and technology so that you can provide the best possible care for our patients.

Exceptional care

We know your primary concern is delivering the best possible care. That's why IVC Evidensia practices always put their patients first.

Clinically led practices

We believe that the best practices are led by our vets and we want it to stay that way. That's why we place so much emphasis on our clinical boards.

An independent practice

Your clinic is the heart of your community and we want to stay that way. We always keep the spirit of the original practice intact.
