handl Group in double acquisition of Paediatric Specialist
Physiotherapy (PSP), and Osiris Health

After breaking into the top 2% of UK businesses and passing the £100m annual turnover mark
for the first time, buy-and-hold investor handl Group has announced the addition of two new
brands to their growing health and wellbeing division.

Paediatric Specialist Physiotherapy (PSP) and Osiris Health will be joining handl Group to
strengthen the company’s already formidable neuro rehabilitation capabilities. As both PSP and
Osiris Health share the group’s ambitions, adding their industry-leading expertise to the group’s
portfolio was an opportunity too good to miss.

Having already acquired Reach and launched Mind Right, handl Group had already made huge
strides into the neuro rehabilitation market. When the opportunity arose to help PSP and Osiris
Health scale up as part of the group’s portfolio and meet their growing demands for specialist
rehabilitation, it was a simple decision to make.

handl Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) Daniel Franklin explains: “handl Group’s success is built on
growing the companies we invest in, and finding ways for them to build expanded service

“That’s exactly what PSP and Osiris Health needed, and it gives us the opportunity to link in
other brands such as Reach and Mind Right to offer a multi-disciplinary approach to neuro

handl Group were advised by Excello Law’s Heather Summers during the acquisition, while
PSP and Osiris Health were supported by CG Professional’s Benjamin Dredge to finalise a deal
which will see PSP’s Peter Sanderson remain with the business as Clinical Services Director.
Peter will be drawing on his specialisms in anatomy, chemo denervation and medicines
optimisation and his experience as a national, European and international advisor on Spasticity management to help drive handl’s health and wellbeing division forwards. It’s an opportunity the honorary senior lecturer in neuro rehabilitation at UCLAN is keen to take:

“I’d been exploring the opportunity to make PSP and Osiris Health a part of the handl Group for
some time, and I’d built a great working relationship with Dan and the team. As Clinical Services
Director, I’ll be able to continue the work we’ve started, keep the health and wellbeing division’s
vision aligned, and ensure that more patients than ever before have access to industry-leading
clinical interventions and treatment.”

To grow their health and wellbeing division even further in the coming months, handl Group is
exploring other acquisition opportunities in the sector, with a focus on finding companies that
can work alongside their existing brands – including PSP and Osiris Health – to deliver better
services and better rehabilitation outcomes.
