Park Veterinary Hospital opened its doors to business in May 1985 when David Newton started a one vet enterprise with 2 employees.

Over the last 35 years it has grown to be the only accredited Veterinary Hospital in Sheffield providing 24 hour care to our patients. We currently employ 8 vets with back-up from a cardiologist and an orthopaedic surgeon. We also have 6 qualified nurses,  at least 3-4 training nurses at any one time, 4 receptionists and 2 admin staff. Our experienced team allows us to provide care for a wide range of domestic pets from dogs to snakes.  Hospital status was approved by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons in March 2001 and we are still one of the few approved hospitals in South Yorkshire and the only one in Sheffield. The current owners Donna Claridge and Carmel Stanford took over the running of the hospital in August 2007 following the retirement of David Newton. In May 2008 we opened our first branch practice, Hope Valley Veterinary Clinic, in Hathersage providing veterinary care in the Hope Valley and surrounding villages.

The hospital offers excellent facilities including a sterile operating theatre, a full range of diagnostic imaging (x-ray, ultrasound and endoscopy) and a fully equipped laboratory. There are also extensive ward facilities allowing for 24 hour care including critical care facilities, an isolation ward and facilities to care for exotic species. These are staffed by our dedicated and caring veterinary and nursing team 24 hours a day.

We feel our Veterinary Hospital status reflects our desire to provide the highest standard of care to all our patients and clients.
