About the Practice

Welcome to Alfreton Park Veterinary Hospital

We are a 9-vet small animal practice in Alfreton, in the beautiful county of Derbyshire, and became part of the Medivet group on 1st May 2018. 
 
Since moving to our purpose-built premises on King Street in 2001, we’ve built up a fantastic team of dedicated vets, nurses and support staff who genuinely care about you and your pet. Our staff do not have any sales or financial targets to meet - all our recommendations are based on doing the best for your pet, offering good value service every day.

We can offer a high quality level of care to you and your pet – we do everything from routine work such as vaccinations, claw clips and microchips, to advanced surgery on broken bones, helping pets with heart problems, itchy dogs and much more!
 
 


Many of our clients have been with us for years, and often come to us by recommendation. Our latest ‘client satisfaction survey’ gave us a 97% approval rating – it’s great that our clients appreciate us so much, and we are very grateful for your continued support.

Some of our vets have post-graduate qualifications in different areas of veterinary medicine and surgery, offering you and your pet the most up-to-date knowledge and treatments.

The vets are supported by a dedicated team of highly-trained nurses who will always look after your pets with sensitivity and will care for them as if they were their own.

Most of our receptionists have been with us for many years, so it’s likely you will be greeted by a familiar friendly face when you come in!
 
 


Our staff are regularly nominated for ‘Vet of the Year’ and ‘Nurse of the Year’ in the Pet Plan awards, and we won the ‘Practice Design of the Year’ competition run by the British Veterinary Hospitals Association in 2002, soon after opening our new premises.

The practice has been in Alfreton for over 100 years, initially based on Nottingham Road in Alfreton before moving to King Street in 2001.
