Nuffield Health Partnership Extended
Following two successful seasons of collaboration, we are delighted to confirm that Nuffield Health will continue as our Official Health Partner for the 22/23 season.
With more than 65 years’ experience and an industry-leading network of health and wellbeing facilities, Nuffield Health offers a full breadth of services, from physical and mental health, hospital treatments and clinical care through to rehabilitation and general wellbeing.
The natural continuation of the partnership will see all of Argyle’s teams – including Steven Schumacher’s first-team, the Argyle Academy, and Argyle Women - supported by Nuffield’s industry leading diagnostic services, including MRI and CT scans, as well as access to some of the region’s leading surgeons.
Alongside medical care, the agreement supports Argyle with by providing access to Nuffield’s two fitness and conditioning sites in the city of Plymouth, based at Derriford and the Barbican Leisure Park.
As members of the Argyle Nexus Business Club, Nuffield Health branding will continue to feature in every edition of our match-day programme, The Pilgrim. Supporters can also expect to see the continued presence of Nuffield branding around Home Park, and online in the form of sponsorship of our ever-popular Matchday Moments series.
Argyle’s Head of Commercial Operations, James Greenacre, said: “It was a simple and straightforward decision to extend our partnership with Nuffield Health, and that speaks to the strength of what we have achieved together so far.
“Nuffield Health’s expertise and support for our teams is vital as we look to realise the club’s well-known ambition to become a sustainable Championship club. Our players are vital assets, and we know they get the best care and advice possible with Nuffield Health.”
A new survey by Nuffield Health has highlighted the impact of the pandemic on health and wellbeing, with the Healthier Nation Index revealing that 37 per cent of UK adults are now more concerned about their mental health, with a further 40 per cent worried about the impact on their physical health.
Through the partnership, Nuffield Health aspires to build on the mental and physical benefits that football brings to improve the wellbeing of individuals and communities within Plymouth.
Commenting on the partnership Merika Kindlon, Head of Sales & Services at Nuffield Health Plymouth Hospital, added: “We're delighted to continue to bring our purpose to life through our partnership with Plymouth Argyle.
“We are proud to support Argyle’s Women’s Team, working alongside their newly appointed manager Elaine Dalton-Fyfe. Together we will work to promote fitness and wellbeing to the women and girls of Plymouth by fulfilling Nuffield’s charitable purpose.
“Football is about teamwork and community, and similarly we believe in the power of working together and supporting one another to help everyone achieve their health and wellbeing ambitions.”
“Our Healthier Nation Index survey shone a light on some of the key health and wellbeing challenges affecting people today, so we’re happy to carry on as the Pilgrims’ teammate in health and wellbeing and playing a key role in showing people how to live a healthier life and achieve better health outcomes using the power of football.”
Speaking on behalf of Argyle Women, General Manager Elaine Dalton-Fyfe said: “Through strong and supportive partnerships, we can collaborate to further the wider community interest and support of women’s football, and develop the young girls and women who wish to play the game.
