New Barnet FC head coach launches new day case unit for BMI Hendon Hospital

Barnet FCThe newly appointed Head Coach of Barnet FC, Rossi Eames, today officially opened the purpose-built Day Case Unit – named the Rowsley Suite - at BMI Hendon Hospital, celebrating the on-going partnership between the two local organisations.

Rossi Eames opened the suite with the Executive Director of the hospital Andrew Jeavons-Fellows, who said: “This is a significant financial investment in the hospital that improves our patients’ experience. It also adds to the recent investment in our endoscopy equipment allowing us to better serve our local community. It’s great to have the backing of our patients and supporters in Hendon and Barnet.” 

The suite’s name – after the road adjacent to the hospital – was a suggestion from a member of staff at the hospital and was chosen because it reflects the hospital’s place in the local community. 

Patients who are able to pay for themselves, have private medical insurance or those who choose to have their NHS-funded care at the hospital will benefit from the facilities. At the ribbon cutting launch event, staff and Barnet FC guests were treated to afternoon tea to celebrate. 

Rossi Eames commented “I’m delighted to represent Barnet Football Club and open these new facilities. Over the past two seasons BMI Hendon hospital has been our private healthcare partner and our players have used their physiotherapy and imaging services to great effect. We’re looking forward to continuing our partnership over the coming seasons too.” 

Victoria Bowden, Director of Clinical Services at BMI Hendon Hospital, said “We’ve already seen patients in our new suite and have had some excellent feedback from both patients and Consultants. We’ll be able to look after patients across a number of specialties, including ophthalmology, endoscopy, oral surgery, pain procedures and hand and wrist procedures.”
