Warwickshire County Cricket Club has extended its Official Healthcare Partnership with BMI The Priory Hospital in Birmingham for another 12-month term.
Based less than one mile from Edgbaston Stadium, BMI The Priory Hospital has a long-standing relationship with the medical team at Warwickshire CCC, which will continue to utilise the hospital’s state-of-the-art facilities when members of the playing squad require scans for injury assessment or for rehabilitation programmes.
