Harris & Ross have joined forces with Super League Club, Widnes Vikings as their official medical provider for the 2015 campaign.
It is set to be a big year for Widnes with squad looking to better their 8th place finish in the 2014 season. A position that also earned them a place in the end of season play offs for the first time in their history. Another major highlight to the season was the semi-final face off with Castleford Tigers in the Challenge Cup.
Harris & Ross will be running the medical department for the entire Vikings squad and we’ll be pitch side for every single match, home and away. This coupled with our close relationship with Spire Manchester Hospital allows for rapid access to any necessary imaging, sports medicine or surgical consultations to keep the players fit and healthy for the season.
