Does anyone know if there is one, or more accreditation bodies who monitor your vet?

When your vet takes a blood sample, from your cow, or your cat, and sends it off to a lab to get a result, who's the body that checks that test was done properly, and your sample wasn't mixed up?

Does anyone know?

I think vets belong to the Royal College of Vetinary Surgeons RCVS, and labs for humans are subjected to all sorts of govt checks and inspections and are operated by Registered Medical Laboratry Scientific Officers that are regulated by the Health Professions Council.
You can complain to the HPC and they have a hearing and stuff and can strike you off......

You can do a couple of searches now you know who to search for !

Many thanks.
I was struggling to google for an accreditation body. I have nothing to complain about, I'm pleased to say, it was purely for professional interest.
