Fortius Clinic is already the preferred clinic of choice for many premier league football and rugby clubs, and is a recognised FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence. As part of this partnership, Fortius Clinic will be supporting RPA members through their professional careers and during transition into retirement from professional sport.

 

Jim McAvoy, Chief Executive, Fortius Clinic said; “Fortius provides extensive medical and surgical care to many professional rugby players and teams and we look forward to developing a long-standing partnership with the RPA through which their members will have access to world-class orthopaedic and musculoskeletal care”

Gaia Bursell, RPA's Head of Commercial, said: "We are thrilled to have Fortius on board as an RPA partner. The physicality of the modern game means the need for top class medical support is vital to our members, therefore having access to such a reputable orthopaedic group is key to ensure the longevity of their health both during and after their careers.”
