Out of Hours Care

Our ‘out of hours’ work is done at our surgery in Alfreton, and is run by ‘Vets Now’. This is a separate company to us who specialise in emergency medicine and surgery, and are the leading provider of ‘out of hours’ care in the UK. They are a dedicated team of veterinary surgeons specially trained in emergency veterinary care.


Outside our regular opening hours, there is an answer phone message giving you the phone number for ‘Vets Now’ on 01773 688192.

They will be pleased to offer you help and advice, and can see you and your poorly pet at the normal surgery in Alfreton.

We have been using Vets Now since 2011. Many practices in the UK use companies like Vets Now for their night work – this ensures the vets and nurses looking after your pet during the night have not already worked a full day, so are fully rested. Their vets and nurses are constantly on the premises and ensure all our in-patients are constantly monitored through the night.

Vets Now in Alfreton receive emergency cases from as far away as Mansfield, Chesterfield and Eastwood, with the owner bringing them to Alfreton then transporting them back to their home practice the following morning. The benefit of using Alfreton Park Vets as your home practice is that all the out of hours work is covered at our usual premises, then we will take over their care the following morning.
