Specialist consultants from BMI The Chiltern & Shelburne Hospitals have been delivering a series of talks to Wycombe Wanderers players to increase awareness of two key topics associated with professional football.
The club’s official medical partner addressed the squad at their training ground in Booker, with Dr Punit Ramrakha discussing cardiac health in sport and Dr Matthew Jackson explaining the protocols around head injuries and concussion.
Wanderers’ manager Gareth Ainsworth said: “BMI Healthcare have provided an outstanding service to us over the past few years and we’re extremely grateful that they’ve taken the time to help educate our players about some of the health risks that they need to look out for during their careers.
Fraser Dawson, executive director of BMI South Buckinghamshire Hospitals, said: “We are proud to offer a range of services to Wycombe Wanderers, including medical assessments, rehabilitation for injuries and also educational guidance for their medical team and players.
“We look forward to continuing our relationship with the club throughout the 2019/20 season, and invite their supporters to explore the services that we offer to patients at our Chiltern and Shelburne hospitals by visiting our website."
