About One Health Group

One Health engages over 100 NHS Consultants who sub-specialise in the various surgeries offered by the Company, through a growing network of community-based outreach clinics and surgical operating locations. Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, on an annual basis, One Health serviced in excess of 10,000 new patients, through over 30,000 consultations and performed over 7,000 surgical procedures. One Health uses surgeons and anaesthetists that are mostly employed by the NHS, on a consultancy basis. It currently works with over 100 professionals across 7 hospitals and 20 CQC registered clinics.

One Health’s activities are focused on areas where the patient needs are under-supplied by the local NHS service as well as locations where population density is relatively high, and the level of private medical insurance is relatively low. One Health has also sought to expand geographically from its Head Office in Sheffield into neighbouring counties, which meet the required criteria. Currently, the Company’s activities are focused in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire. Revenue in the year to 31 March 2022 was derived from 40 Clinical Commissioning Groups in addition to contracts with NHS hospitals.

One Health’s business model has focused to date on four main areas: being Spine, Orthopaedics, General Surgery and Gynaecology. The split of inpatient procedures in the year to 31 March 2020 was as follows: Spine 32% Orthopaedics 27% General Surgery 29% Gynaecology 12%.

Spine and orthopaedics are particularly attractive areas for One Health as the Directors believe that they benefit from powerful growth drivers in terms of an ageing demographic, physical inactivity and an increasing proportion of the population being categorised as obese. Within orthopaedics, the most common surgeries performed by One Health are knee and hip replacements.

One Health delivered 4,870 procedures in the year to 31 March 2022 and the Directors expect the Company to deliver approximately 5,500 procedures in the year to 31 March 2023.
