Building a healthier nation...

By Paul Lagan

Nuffield Health has today announced a new five-year partnership with The Football Association to become the football governing body’s official health and wellbeing partner.

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 well-being. England teams rely on experts on and off the pitch to perform at their best, and Nuffield Health similarly understands that everyone’s health and well-being needs the right support.

The partnership will aim to build a healthier nation, raising awareness of the importance of positive mental and physical wellbeing and developing a series of initiatives which give people of all ages the tools and encouragement to live a healthier life.

Steve Gray, chief executive officer, Nuffield Health said: "The FA. 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 well-being ambitions. "Our Healthier Nation Index survey shone a light on some of the key health and wellbeing challenges affecting people today, so we’re looking forward to becoming the nation’s 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.”

Navin Singh, The FA’s commercial director, said: "It is a fantastic opportunity to be able to link up with an industry-leading health and well-being provider to work towards building a healthier nation.

“Nuffield Health’s purpose aligns perfectly with our assets across England teams, Wembley Stadium connected by EE and St. George’s Park and this partnership will help us to continue to unite the game and inspire the nation.”

As part of the agreement, Nuffield Health will receive several rights, including access to the England national men’s and women’s senior teams, Wembley Stadium, and St. George’s Park. Nuffield Health and The FA will also work together on grassroots initiatives to support the needs of local communities, giving more people the tools to live a healthier life.
