Totally plc (LON:TLY), a leading provider of a range of healthcare services across the UK and Ireland, has announced today a number of extensions to existing contracts across England, worth a total of c. £19.55 million.
Whilst the NHS focuses on responding to the COVID-19 crisis these contract extensions, awarded to Vocare Limited (“Vocare”), Totally’s wholly owned subsidiary and one of the UK’s leading national specialist providers of urgent care services, will ensure the continued provision of services to patients beyond March 2021 and include options for further 12 month extensions.
Under the terms of the extensions, Vocare will continue to provide vital GP Out of Hours, NHS 111 and Integrated Urgent Care Services to several NHS Commissioners across the breadth of England, including South West London, Staffordshire and Vale of York.
In partnership with the NHS, Vocare and Greenbrook Healthcare: Totally’s Urgent Care division, remain committed and focused on enhancing out of hours services and urgent care treatment, helping to relieve the pressures faced by the health services, especially at the current time.
As previously announced Totally continues to focus its efforts on supporting the NHS in the proactive response to COVID-19 through the provision of services from its Urgent Care division. Today, the Group also announces that, in line with recent Government guidance and as the NHS works towards moving into the next phase of its plan of resuming non-essential and elective procedures, it has mobilised its Planned Care and Insourcing divisions to ensure they are ready to recommence operations and support the NHS as soon as these services restart across the UK.
Wendy Lawrence, CEO of Totally plc, said: “The COVID-19 pandemic we are currently facing has highlighted the importance of supporting the NHS through the provision of high quality, responsive services for patients. We are delighted to announce this range of contract extensions which will enable us to continue supporting the needs of the numerous communities we currently serve, whilst further strengthening our partnership with the NHS.
“At this exceptional time our priority remains the delivery of frontline services across the UK and ensuring we work closely with the NHS as the COVID-19 situation evolves and we move into the next stages. We will continue to support the NHS and our patients through not only our Urgent Care division, as we have been to date, but also now through the re-establishment of operations via our Planned Care and Insourcing divisions across the UK and Ireland.”
