Out-of-hospital healthcare service provider Totally plc has extended two contracts worth a total of £16.6m.
The contracts have been awarded to its wholly-owned subsidiary Vocare Limited, a specialist provider of urgent care services.
The extensions include the South West London NHS 111 & GP out-of-hours contract which has been extended from 28 September 2019 to 30 September 2020, valued at £10.6m, and the Scarborough Integrated Urgent Care contract, extended from 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2022, valued at £6m.
‘As we continue to strengthen our partnership with the NHS, we are delighted to announce Vocare has secured further significant contract extensions,’ said Wendy Lawrence, chief executive officer of Totally. ‘Such extensions are significant achievements in our business and are a great reflection of the work our staff are doing in delivering quality care to the high standards required by commissioners.’
The contract extensions follow Totally’s move to become the leading provider in the UK and Ireland’s fragmented insourcing market, which is currently valued at around £125m-£150m a year. The company has also launched Totally Healthcare Limited, which is focused on tackling NHS waiting lists through the delivery of medical services to hospitals using existing premises and equipment.
