Affidea & Donegal GAA celebrate one year anniversary as Diagnostics Partners

The partnership between Affidea, Ireland’s leading independent diagnostic imaging provider, and Donegal GAA has been going strong for the past year, since Affidea Letterkenny successfully launched at Scally Place last July. The deal with Donegal GAA allows players to avail of state-of-the-art diagnostic access to MRI, Ultrasound and X-ray facilities. Appointments, made by referral, are generally seen to within days.

Donegal Team Doctor Kevin Moran commented; “I am extremely impressed with the service available and the quick turnaround time. To have a service like this that is so convenient and efficient for the players is vital for diagnosis, and allows them to get the proper treatment as soon as possible and get back on the playing field.”

Donegal Team Captain Michael Murphy popped into the centre earlier this week to congratulate the local staff on their one year anniversary. He said; “We are delighted to have Affidea as our exclusive health partners because this centre in Letterkenny services a real need in the area. The partnership covers all our teams from underage development squads right up to our senior teams in both hurling and football, so now we don’t have to travel to Sligo, Galway or Dublin anymore, with quick access and turnaround reporting. Early diagnosis means our players can get the correct treatment minimising our recovery time and enabling proper rehab. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Affidea for their continued support of Donegal GAA, and especially the local staff for always being so accommodating and helpful.”

Referrer Relationship Executive James Pat McDaid said; “As medical partners, we are proud to support an important part of the local community in Donegal ensuring our GAA players are guaranteed the attention they need with the best care on offer. On behalf of the Affidea Family, I wish Donegal the best of luck this weekend and beyond, and we look forward to supporting the local Donegal GAA community in the years ahead.”
