Wanderers have teamed up with BMI Healthcare South Buckinghamshire Hospitals in a new partnership...

...which will see the BMI Chiltern, Shelburne and Paddocks Hospitals become Official Healthcare Providers to the club.

BMI Healthcare are the largest provider of private independent healthcare in the UK and offer rapid access to diagnostic services such as bone density scanners, CT, MRI, Ultrasound, as well as physiotherapy and operating theatres.

Wanderers have already benefitted from a number of visits to BMI Hospitals so far this season, assisting with the prognosis and rehabilitation of injuries to its players.

Damian Irvine, head of commercial activities at the club, said: “It’s fantastic for us to introduce this new partnership with BMI Healthcare and plenty of work has gone in to making this happen. This is a long-term deal which places the club in a far better position in the areas of proactive therapy and conditioning, testing, pathology and treatments where required.

“Where previously we may have had to send players into London or even further afield for scans and tests, we now have first-class facilities on our doorstep which is extremely beneficial to our players and medical staff.”

Fraser Dawson, executive director of the hospital group, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to partner with our local football club, and having recently been appointed to BMI South Buckinghamshire Hospitals after running a number of hospitals in the London region, it was clear that there was an abundance of support for Wycombe Wanderers from my staff and consultants.

“I am absolutely delighted that we are able to offer the club a range of services in the diagnosis and treatment of injuries, although we very much hope that we don’t see too much of the players throughout the season and that they can remain fit and healthy to bring success on the pitch.”
