About us

The Park Vet Group was established over 100 years ago and is now a fully RCVS accredited multi-site, primary care and mid-tier referral practice. With sites in Whetstone, Glenfield, Saffron Lane & Scraptoft Lane, all our practices are self-sufficient and are fully equipped to run independently, but we like to share best-practice and work as a big team.

We are seeking a confident, primary care, Vet to join our Glenfield Tier 3 RCVS accredited Hospital.

As a team, we often discuss clinical cases and have monthly team meetings to share knowledge and communications. We welcome supporting certificate studies for our associates, if you have a particular interest you are welcome to discus it with us!
