NEWS - 23RD SEPTEMBER 2020
Leading orthopaedic and sports injury group set to provide ongoing support for hundreds of current and former professional rugby players
Fortius Clinic, a leading orthopaedic and sports injury group with a presence in the Harley Street Medical Area, has announced an official partnership with the Rugby Players Association (RPA). The RPA is the representative body and collective voice of professional rugby players in England, with more than 800 male and female current players and more than 400 former players.
Founded in 2009 by clinicians, Fortius Clinic is the UK’s single largest orthopaedic group with an international reputation in sports injury treatment. Fortius Clinic is already the preferred clinic of choice for many Premier League football and Premiership rugby clubs, and is a recognised FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence. As part of this partnership, Fortius Clinic will be supporting RPA members throughout their careers and during their transition into retirement from professional sport.
Jim McAvoy, chief executive of Fortius Clinic, said: “Fortius provides extensive medical and surgical care to many professional rugby players and teams and we look forward to developing a long-standing partnership with the RPA through which their members will have access to world-class orthopaedic and musculoskeletal care.”
Gaia Bursell, RPA’s head of commercial, added: “We are thrilled to have Fortius on board as an RPA partner. The physicality of the modern game means the need for top class medical support is vital to our members, therefore having access to such a reputable orthopaedic group is key to ensure the longevity of their health both during and after their careers.”
