Totally continues to make progress and, since releasing its final results on 10 July 2018, the Company has announced in excess of £10m of value in new and re-secured contracts through its subsidiaries. The Company’s pipeline of opportunities continues to grow and the Board remains confident in Totally’s ability to secure business and ensure that all opportunities are maximised.

The Group remains committed to improving the quality of the services it provides and to supporting staff in order to deliver the best possible care to patients. Significant changes have been made internally to processes and procedures, the successes of which have been demonstrated by the continued improvement in ratings following Care Quality Commission inspections.

Extensive changes have been and continue to be made to the delivery of back office functions across all subsidiaries, these have not only improved quality but also reduced costs.

Whilst there is more work to be done across the Group, this is happening at pace and the Directors believe Totally remains well placed to take significant market share of the outsourced integrated urgent care market and other community-based healthcare services.

Pursuant to AIM Rule 17, following receipt of a shareholder analysis report of the Company’s share register as at 30 September 2018 and having made appropriate enquiries with the relevant institutions, the Company has become aware that Lombard Odier Investment Managers, Miton Asset Management, Schroder Investment Management Limited and Canaccord Genuity Group Inc no longer have notifiable (3% or higher) interests in the Company.
