Totally Healthcare awarded key new contract in the Republic of Ireland
Totally plc (AIM: TLY), a leading provider of a range of healthcare services across the UK, is pleased to report that Totally Healthcare Limited ("Totally Healthcare"), Totally's wholly-owned subsidiary, a specialist business providing insourcing services to the healthcare sector in the UK and Ireland, has been awarded a new contract (the "Contract"), worth up to £850,000.
The details of the Contract, Totally Healthcare's largest contract to date, are as follows:
· Provision of endoscopy procedures to The Saolta Group of Hospitals in Galway, Republic of Ireland, covering six hospitals.
· Totally Healthcare will help the hospitals to shorten patient waiting lists, which have increased significantly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic with non-urgent procedures being delayed.
· Contract commences in July 2021 and runs until March 2022.
· The total value of the Contract is up to £850,000.
Wendy Lawrence, CEO of Totally, said: "I am very pleased to announce Totally Healthcare's largest contract to date, providing endoscopy procedures to six hospitals within the Saolta Group of Hospitals in Galway.
"The pandemic has put immense pressure on the UK and Ireland's healthcare sector and, as a result, there are significant numbers of patients awaiting treatment. In England alone, there are believed to be circa 5 million patients on waiting lists for various procedures.
"Totally Healthcare was launched specifically to address this issue and to reduce waiting lists in trusts and hospitals across the UK and Ireland by utilising their spare capacity outside of normal working hours and weekends. The business has made significant strides since its launch in October 2019 and now, further to this new contract in the Republic of Ireland, Totally Healthcare is also operating across England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
"Totally Healthcare benefits from a management team with vast insourcing experience and, leveraging Totally's position as a leading healthcare provider, plus the Group's strong relationships with NHS commissioners in the UK and Health Service Executive (HSE) commissioners in the Republic of Ireland, we expect Totally Healthcare to continue to grow at pace and widen its footprint across the UK and Ireland.
"I look forward to updating the market on further progress in due course."
