Corporate Update - About Health Limited

Totally plc (AIM: TLY), the provider of a range of out-of-hospital services to the healthcare sector in the UK, announces a contract extension and pilot scheme for referral management services ("RMS") for its dermatology services company, About Health Limited ("About Health"). In total, the contract extension and pilot scheme are expected to account for revenues of approximately £360,000 per annum.

About Health, a provider of community based dermatology services under contract to the NHS since 2009 and a wholly owned operating subsidiary of Totally, has extended its existing contract to deliver a pilot RMS for North Tyneside Clinical Commissioning Group ("CCG") by a further 12 months. This follows a highly successful initial evaluation which resulted in significant savings for the CCG. This contract extension is expected to be worth approximately £120,000.

Additionally, About Health has secured a 12-month pilot of a similar service for North Durham CCG. This will add cardiology and gastroenterology as two new specialities to the RMS and is expected to be worth approximately £240,000.

Wendy Lawrence, CEO of Totally, said, "We acquired About Health in June 2016 as part of our progressive buy and build strategy and following its successful integration into the Group we are delighted to be updating the market on its progress. The continued confidence of North Tyneside CCG and the commencement of work with North Durham CCG underscores the significant benefit that About Health's services can provide to NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups. We continue to see promising developments coming from our operating businesses as we build on our vision of becoming the leading provider of 'out of hospital' care in the UK and are confident that the Group will maintain this momentum going forward."
