“A healthy body is a healthy mind and making sure I’m at the top of my game both physically and mentally is really important to me,” says Paul. “The guys at Kingsbridge have been great and their facilities and clinical expertise are second to none. They have been so supportive and organised my medicals including bloods and MRI scans.
 
“I’ve overcome some major challenges over the last few years with my hand injuries so to have such a reputable healthcare partner backing me is so encouraging and gives me real peace of mind.  I know I just have to lift the phone and the guys will help me if I ever need it”.

Anthony McKenna, Business Development Manager at Kingsbridge Private Hospitals said:

“We are delighted to have Paul on board as one of our Kingsbridge Athletes and wish him all the best this weekend for his fight. At 23 years of age he is a remarkable young sportsman, is extremely disciplined, focused and has made great strides in his career.
