Rugby is a punishing, physical sport with players at the top of their game often sustaining multiple injuries that can affect their ability to play. Representing our country at a national level, it’s essential that our star players receive top health care from a top health care provider.
Spire Murrayfield Hospital is the official health care partner of Scottish Rugby
In 2008 Spire Murrayfield Hospital in Edinburgh became the official healthcare partner of Scottish Rugby and professional squads the Edinburgh Gunners and Glasgow Warriors. Over the past four years we have worked together with Scottish Rugby’s medical team to provide the highest standard of medical care for their players. The healthcare partnership has provided all players with fast priority access to diagnosis and treatment, with some of the Scotland’s leading Consultants in orthopaedics, sports medicine, radiology, maxillofacial and ENT.
With our consultants and specialists at their top of their game too, we help to ensure our top players arrive at games match-fit and in top condition, leaving one less thing to stand in the way of glory.

We receive a first-rate, professional service from Spire Healthcare. On occasion when a player’s injury or condition necessitates a referral we will contact Spire Murrayfield Hospital and players are seen very quickly.
