- Totally, which provides services to the UK healthcare sector, has launched specialist business Totally Healthcare targeting the market for insourcing of healthcare services in the UK and Ireland.

Totally Healthcare has been set up as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Totally and will be led by managing director Marie Lee, along with clinicians including Dr Graham Turner, medical advisor, and Kaye Drew, head of nursing.

Totally Healthcare conducted a pilot scheme in the Republic of Ireland, where consultants, with supporting nursing teams, were provided from the UK.

Wendy Lawrence, chief executive of Totally, said: 'The group's directors have identified long waiting lists as a fundamental issue facing the UK and Ireland's healthcare sector and we believe that Totally Healthcare is well placed to address this issue.

'By building upon the existing relationships of the group and its subsidiaries we are confident we can make a significant impact in the fragmented insourcing market, with the ultimate aim of becoming the market leader.'
