All calls made to any Park Veterinary Group surgery outside of the usual opening times, will be automatically diverted to the Park Veterinary Hospital in Glenfield.
The Saffron Lane surgery is the original site for the Park Veterinary Group and provides full surgical and medical care for your pets.
It is a busy first opinion practice and has been new refurbished in July 2013.
The small animal side of the Park Vet Group operates from 5 sites. Four of these are stand-alone clinics of 3-6 vets each, and one is a dedicated branch surgery for consulting and routine operations.
The four main surgeries are self-sufficient for all routine first opinion work and have their own fixed veterinary teams, promoting continuity for clients, and also for the vets the opportunity to work in a small close-knit unit, but with the back-up, expertise and free time that you only get from a multi-person practice. There is a strong ethos within the Park Vet Group to encourage continual professional development (CPD) which is viewed as a benefit for staff and clients alike.
“We work together as a team to ensure all our staff are kept up to date and motivated to do their best for you and your pet”
Joyce Thomas, Practice Manager.
Gareth Jones joined the practice straight from Liverpool University in 1986. After a trip round the world and 3 years at London University teaching ophthalmology, he returned to the practice as a partner in 1996. Gareth also works at the Park Referral Service and accepts eye referrals from surrounding practices and has interests in business management. He is also a keen follower of football and cricket and supports Everton FC.
Jane Yeates has worked in the practice for over 20 years and is very experienced in all aspects of small animal work. Jane is based in our Saffron Lane surgery but also helps out in the farm team and has one of the best success rates for Caesareans within the farm team! Jane became an associate in June 2007.
Charlotte (Charlie) Wright graduated from The Royal Veterinary College in 2008 and after a short time in mixed practice in Kent joined the Park Veterinary Group in June 2009 as a mixed practitioner. She spent her first two years at the Whetstone Surgery but has now joined the team at our Saffron Lane surgery. Her farm interest means that she is also able to offer practical advice on the more unusual pets we encounter including pet pigs and chickens.
We employ highly trained, approachable, compassionate and considerate staff using the most modern facilities.
