- Healthcare sector services provider Totally booked a deeper first-half loss, owing to a large depreciation and amortisation charge, though its underlying performance improved.

Pre-tax losses for the six months through September amounted to £2.6m, compared to losses of £0.5m on-year.

Revenue rose to £49.2m, up from £40.2m, while underlying operating earnings rose to £2.1m, up from £0.1m.

Totally said it planned to pay a maiden interim dividend of 0.25p per share in February.

'I am pleased to report on a solid first half which saw us complete the transformational and highly complementary acquisition of Greenbrook Healthcare, offering the group a greater foothold across the UK in the urgent care sector,' chairman Bob Holt said.
