Totally enters workplace wellbeing market

Totally, a Derby-based healthcare provider is moving into the workplace wellbeing market with its recent acquisition of Energy Fitness Professionals (EFP), a corporate fitness provider.

Totally provides healthcare services in the UK and Ireland, working in partnership with the NHS and other providers to deliver healthcare services through its divisions of ‘Urgent Care’, ‘Planned Care’ and ‘Insourcing’.

EFP was founded in 1990. It offers a range of services covering workplace wellbeing. In the year ended 31 March 2021, it recorded revenue of £983,708.

Totally said the acquisition, worth up to £1.3 million, is one of many bolt-on businesses with which its board is at an advanced stage of discussions.

Wendy Lawrence, chief executive of Totally, said: ” This acquisition creates exciting opportunities to transform the group further by providing a new digital solution for many of our existing and planned new services. Totally will now be able to offer existing clinical, and physical, and wellbeing services as part of a new digital offering to new and existing customers.

“By entering the corporate market through Energy Fit-Pro’s strong existing contract base, we can further support our traditional customers, such as the NHS, by providing solutions that keep the population physically and mentally healthy and avoid the need for in-hospital care where possible.

“We continue advanced discussions with a number of other bolt-on businesses to enhance and strengthen our proposition further. I look forward to updating the market in due course as we look to build upon Totally’s position as a leading provider of healthcare delivery across the UK and Ireland and expand further by offering workplace wellbeing solutions.”

EFP’s founders, Robert Radford and Alan Gallacher, will continue to work in the business following the acquisition.

Allenby Capital was Totally’s nominated adviser and a joint corporate broker. Canaccord Genuity was also a joint corporate broker.
