Darlington Mowden Park (DMP) is thrilled to announce that Nuffield Health Tees Hospital have become the club’s official healthcare partner for the upcoming season.

The new partnership will help the DMP squad to access Nuffield’s specialist services, which includes x-rays, scans, treatments and surgeries.

The agreement will see Nuffield Health Tees Hospital’s distinctive branding displayed on the Men’s 1st XV warm up shirts and subs jackets, as well as around the club’s base at the Darlington Arena.

The hospital, based in Norton, celebrates its 40th Anniversary this year and has established itself as one of the leading providers of private healthcare in the North East, serving patients from Stockton-on-Tees, Darlington, Middlesbrough, Durham and the surrounding area.

In 2017 it became the only hospital north of Leeds to receive an ‘outstanding’ rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Darlington Mowden Park chairman Mick Birch commented: “We are delighted to have agreed this new partnership with Nuffield Health. It’s a privilege for us to work with such a well-established healthcare provider and we’re hugely grateful for their support. This new arrangement will help us to provide the best possible environment for our players and we look forward to growing the partnership in future seasons.”

A not-for-profit healthcare organisation, Nuffield Health runs a network of award-winning hospitals, fitness and wellbeing clubs, together with a host of other healthcare and diagnostic services across the country.

Laura Hanson, sales and services manager at Nuffield Health Tees Hospital, added: “We’re absolutely delighted to become the club’s official healthcare partner for the upcoming season. Local clubs and sports activities are quite often the backbone of their local communities and benefit people of all ages.

“We share this ethos at Nuffield Health Tees Hospital as we continue our work to support local sporting organisations that are helping to make people in our area fitter, healthier, happier and stronger.”
