Wendy Lawrence, chief executive officer, Totally plc

Totally plc has awarded an £8.4m contract to its wholly-owned subsidiary About Health Ltd to provide community dermatology services to Manchester and Trafford clinical commissioning groups (CCGs). 

This is the dermatology provider’s largest contract to date, which will run for a period of three years, with an option to extend for a further two years at the contract’s conclusion.

About Health Ltd had previously been awarded contracts to provide services in North Tyneside, North Durham, South Tees, Preston, Chorley, South Ribble and NHS East Lancashire CCGs.

This latest contract is Totally’s first to be awarded in 2020.

‘This important contract win reflects About Health’s continued ambition to increase its presence across the UK, and to consolidate its position as a market leader in community based dermatology services,’ Wendy Lawrence, CEO of Totally plc. ‘We now look forward to getting underway across Manchester and to developing a successful long-term relationship with Manchester & Trafford CCGs.’

Lawrence went onto provide Totally’s shareholders with an update on Totally Healthcare Ltd, the specialist business targeting the market for insourcing of healthcare services.

‘The business has made a solid start since its launch in October 2019, working with hospitals and trusts across the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and England.

‘To date, it has secured total revenues in excess of £750,000, treating hundreds of patients across a range of clinical specialties.

‘The board is pleased with the group’s progress and we remain positive that Totally Healthcare is well-positioned to benefit from the developing market in which it operates,’ she said.
