Tuesday 09 April 2019 Written by: Adam

The new alliance between the region’s Gallagher Premiership rugby side and Nuffield Health Newcastle Hospital follows on from a successful partnership between the Falcons and Nuffield’s Fitness & Wellbeing Gym in Gosforth.

Part of a leading not-for-profit healthcare organisation, Nuffield Health Newcastle Hospital in Jesmond has been providing outstanding private healthcare to people in the North East for over 40 years through its first-class medical facilities and exceptional standards of care.

This is the first time the hospital has partnered with a Premiership rugby side to provide health and wellbeing support, which will give Falcons players and staff access to a range of clinical services and medical expertise.

Explaining the significance of the partnership, Stacey Brunton, services manager for Nuffield Health Newcastle, said: “As an ethical, not-for-profit health and wellbeing provider, we are dedicated to improving people’s lives through our hospitals and gyms.

“We also strive to play an active part in promoting the importance of health and wellbeing awareness in our local communities. Newcastle Falcons share the same ethos and we are delighted to be working with them.

“Through working together we are not only able to provide the players with access to exceptional healthcare services, it also enables us to engage with fans and the local community to promote health awareness and make a difference to everyone.”

Rachel Scurfield, lead doctor for Newcastle Falcons, said: “Nuffield deliver an excellent service with top-class facilities. They are very accommodating with urgent requests, allowing us to manage the players efficiently. It is very convenient and they are a pleasure to work with.”
