Nuffield Acquires Greens

Nuffield Health, the healthcare charity, has bought the 15-strong chain of Greens Health & Fitness centres from the De Vere Group in a deal which is undisclosed.

The fitness centres include outlets in Birmingham and Stoke, plus Liverpool, Shipley, Wakefield and Sheffield.

Nuffield asserted that the deal took it a step closer to its aspiration of ensuring a bigger proportion of the UK population was able to gain from its unique approach to fitness and health.

The Greens deal fortifies Nuffield Health as one of the UK’s largest social companies and builds on a growth plan that started in 2007 with the acquisition of Cannons gymnasiums and was followed in 2010 with the purchase of the Bladerunner company fitness group.

The most recent deal sees Nuffield Health’s overall membership rise to about 300,000 making it the 6th biggest provider of fitness and wellbeing services in the UK.
