Record numbers of NHS patient referrals for surgical services provider

Adam Binns

One Health Group, an independent provider of surgical services to the NHS, says it expects annual revenues of more than £23m (2022/23: £20.5m), as it issues its full trading update for the year ending 31 March 2024.

This is ahead of market forecasts and in line with the Sheffield-headquartered business’s expectations.

The same update notes that net year end cash was £4.7m (2022/23: £3.3m).

One Health adds its cash generation provides substantial resources for continued investment in growth and underpins the group’s progressive dividend policy.

And the group experienced a 13% increase in new NHS patient referrals to over 13,000 for the year, setting another record.

Adam Binns, chief executive officer, said: “One Health Group has continued to perform well over the last financial year, ahead of last year, and setting another new record for new NHS patients choosing One Health through Patient Choice.

“In addition, we continued to support five NHS Trusts with their internal patient waiting lists, further reducing the pressure on the NHS.

“The record number of new surgeons applying to provide their services to us is testament to the benefits that the group provides to the wider community of NHS patients.

“We look forward to the future with confidence, as our business model for providing surgical care, free at the point of delivery, becomes more widely adopted.”
