Totally plc (AIM:TLY), the provider of a range of out-of-hospital services to the healthcare sector in the UK, announces a ‘sustainability partner’ agreement for a £90,000 six-month contract (“the Contract”) with NHS Blackburn with Darwen Clinical Commissioning Group (“the CCG”), through its subsidiary About Health Limited (“About Health”), a community based dermatology services company and provider of Referral Management Services under contract to the NHS since 2009. Under the Contract, which commences 1 April 2017, About Health will provide Community Dermatology Services to the CCG.
Wendy Lawrence, CEO of Totally, said, “We are pleased to be working with NHS Blackburn with Darwen CCG on provision of community dermatology services. About Health already work with nearby East Lancashire CCG to provide a similar service, and this new Contract will provide stability as the CCG reviews its long-term arrangements for community dermatology services in accordance with the regulatory context within which it works.
“The continued success of About Health since we acquired the business as part of our buy-and-build strategy is a clear demonstration that it’s regarded to be a market leader in community based dermatology services. We look forward to updating the market further on the progress being made across the Group as our subsidiaries target new contracts with the NHS, providing care to patients in local communities to prevent avoidable hospital admissions.”
