Developing Higher Standards by Highlighting Problems
Acceptance onto the Register requires applicants to work within their Scope of Practice and adhere to the RAMP Code of Conduct. Any complaint received by RAMP triggers an investigation into the circumstances, the Registrant's continued adherence to those same strict criteria and the level to which the complaint should be escalated.
Our Complaints Procedure aims:
To encourage early resolution of complaints including use of mediation where appropriate.
To provide good advice and support for those providing information and evidence in relation to complaints and disciplinary cases.
To focus on protecting animals and their owners (and the public where necessary), and mediating resolution where possible.
To develop our procedures and policies based on user feedback.

Please Note: Neither RAMP nor any member of its Council can be held responsible for any consequences arising from any information provided through this website.

All registrants hold professional indemnity insurance and public liability cover. Any complaints regarding a loss caused by a practitioner should therefore be made to the practitioner directly (in the first instance) and if necessary, their professional governing body.
