ParalympicsGB adds Bupa UK as official healthcare partner

This new collaboration has been inked for three years.

ParalympicsGB has announced a new partnership with an international healthcare company, Bupa. With this new agreement, the healthcare brand will be designated as the event’s official healthcare partner, with an emphasis on the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games and beyond.

This new collaboration has been inked for three years. In this association, Bupa will provide the British Paralympians with pragmatic medical examinations and healthcare expertise required for peak efficiency at major events during the partnership.

The two parties will also work together to commemorate differences and diversities, challenge people’s perceptions of impairment, and encourage inclusivity in business and healthcare.

Paralympic gold medalist wheelchair rugby player, Aaron Phipps, who was present at the partnership’s release in Manchester, praised how the collaboration will actually influence people’s perceptions of impairment.

On the partnership, Phipps, said, “There shouldn’t be any barriers to anyone reaching their full potential in life and the more we can spread that message, the more we can achieve together. To compete at an elite level, it’s vital that we have access to the highest quality medical advice and support. Being able to utilise the UK’s top clinicians and services through Bupa has the potential to give us all a real competitive edge.”

Mike Sharrock, Chief Executive at the British Paralympic Association, commented, “We’re proud to be partnering with Bupa, and it’s clear based on their experience of working with Paralympic athletes and organisations around the world that they will be just as keen as we are at ParalympicsGB to make this a truly meaningful partnership, driving the change we want to see in perceptions of disability.”
