Former England rugby player and dancing ace, Austin Healey, talks about why he chose Spire Healthcare for his treatment

Former England rugby union scrum-half and Strictly Come Dancing star, Austin Healey has joined with Spire Healthcare to promote its newly revamped website.  Having represented England from an early age and earned 51 caps, it was inevitable he suffered injuries and believes he visited his local Spire hospital approximately 200 times during his sporting career for the treatment of sports injuries and physiotherapy sessions. 

Austin Healey states:  "I would not hesitate to recommend the treatment and care I received with Spire. I know from experience that it is the place where the leading consultants work, supported by teams of highly skilled and dedicated staff.  Over the years playing international rugby I had my wisdom teeth and jaw realigned, my left shoulder and knee reconstructed, a torn Achilles and micro fracture fixed, my toes sewn back together as well as several dozen physiotherapy sessions and x-rays. The fact that I have such mobility and was able to dance and compete in Strictly is testament to the treatment I received.”

Spire Healthcare is a leading provider of private healthcare, with 36 private hospitals throughout the UK.  The company is built on a proud heritage of over 25 years experience of running successful private hospitals.  The company employs over 7,600 people nationwide and treats over 930,000 patients per year.
