The Huddersfield Hospital, part of Circle Health Group, has been selected as the official healthcare services provider to Huddersfield Giants.

The partnership will see the private hospital provide essential services to players at the Super League club.

Services on offer will include diagnostic imaging, pathology, physiotherapy and access to the hospital’s network of specialist consultants.

Huddersfield Hospital has been at the heart of the community since it opened in 2008 and sees patients from across West Yorkshire.

Located on Birkby Road, the 29-bed hospital offers inpatient and outpatient services to patients who are looking to pay for themselves, or who are supported by medical insurance, and from the NHS.

Brian Blacker, commercial manager for Huddersfield Giants, said: “It’s great to have the Huddersfield Hospital as our official healthcare partner.

“We welcome the opportunity to work with them to give our players the best possible care.”

Gareth Hobson, executive director of The Huddersfield Hospital, said: “This is a great opportunity for both parties to work together. We are delighted that Huddersfield Giants have chosen us as their healthcare partner.

“As a fellow local organisation, we understand how important the club is to the community and are looking forward to supporting the players with specialist care across a range of services.”
