Kidderminster Harriers players can take advantage of the advanced physiotherapy facilities provided at the hospital to aid rehabilitation following injury and help players get back to match fitness.

Paul Biggerstaff, general manager of Kidderminster Harriers, said: “The partnership with Circle Health Group is a vital one for us as a club. Injury is unfortunately part of football, so having such a dynamic and versatile range of facilities available to us locally is of huge benefit to our medical team and the rest of the management staff.

“We’re pleased to have Droitwich Spa Hospital as our healthcare partner of choice and thank them for their support. We look forward to continuing to develop and grow the partnership in what it is a critical area of the business.”
