The new private Urgent Care Centre at BMI Mount Alvernia Hospital in Guildford was officially declared open by international rugby player Kyle Sinckler on 10th January.
The British and Irish Lions prop, who plays his club rugby for Harlequins and is an England regular is active in the local community as first team coach at Guildford Rugby Club.
The Urgent Care Centre opened following a significant investment in the facility.
Leon Newth, Executive Director at BMI Mount Alvernia Hospital said: “It’s great that Kyle can be here to open our Urgent Care Centre. Mount Alvernia has had links to Guildford Rugby Club for a number of years in different ways and it is fantastic that through that partnership we have been able to welcome Kyle to the hospital to cut the ribbon for us. People using our other Urgent Care Centres across the country say they appreciate being seen quickly, having rapid access to healthcare professionals and diagnostics.
"BMI Healthcare has been running Urgent Care Centres in other parts of the country for a while now, and we are using all the expertise we have gained across the network to make the Urgent Care Centre here in Guildford an excellent option for people who want to be seen straight away.”
The new self-pay service at Mount Alvernia is one of four Urgent Care Centres opening within BMI Healthcare hospitals across the country, bringing the total numbers of BMI Urgent Care Centres to seven.
