Medica Group Plc


Annual General Meeting


Medica Group Plc (LSE:MGP, "Medica" or the "Company"), the UK market leader in the provision of teleradiology services, is holding its Annual General Meeting at 10.00 a.m. today at the offices of Eversheds Sutherlands (International) LLP at One Wood Street, London EC2V 7WS.


At the Annual General Meeting, Medica's Chairman, Roy Davis, will provide the following trading update.


Trading update:


Medica has continued to perform well in the first half of the year. The NHS cyber-attacks in May did not impact Medica's own systems and IT infrastructure, and the Company was quick to work closely with affected clients to minimise patient impact and to ensure that Medica could respond to referrals as soon as these clients were back on line. Recruitment of radiologists has continued to be strong and the anticipated full year 2017 results remain in line with the Board's expectations.


The Company will provide a further update at its half year results in September.

About Medica


Medica is the UK market leader by revenue in the provision of teleradiology services, providing outsourced interpretation and reporting on MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), CT (computerised tomography) and plain film (x-ray) images. The Company currently offers three primary services to hospital radiology departments: NightHawk, an out-of-hours service, routine cross-sectional (Routine CS) reporting on MRI and CT scans, and routine plain film (Routine PF) reporting on x-ray images.


Medica has developed a bespoke secure IT platform that provides market-leading linkage between a hospital's Radiology Information System (RIS) and Consultant Radiologists who contract with Medica. Direct RIS access ensures that the full wider patient information is available and reviewed with every report.  


The Company contracts with the largest pool of consultant radiologists outside of the NHS and has been trusted to provide more than 1.3 million examinations annually across its customer base of more than 100 NHS Trusts and various private hospital groups and diagnostic imaging companies.
