Frenkel Topping Announces Partnership with New Major Trauma Centre via Cardinal Management Limited

We are delighted to announce that Cardinal Management Limited (“Cardinal”) has agreed a partnership with a new major trauma centre, John Radcliffe Hospital, run by Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, following a lengthy period of engagement. This takes the total number of major trauma centres to ten, including two new sites in the first half of this financial year.

Frenkel Topping acquired Cardinal in January 2022, enabling the Group to provide a clear and direct link to claimants and their professional representatives, at the earliest stage possible after serious injury or illness. This in turn introduces the portfolio of FTG services in a relevant and timely way to its clients in the PI and CN litigation space as well as claimants themselves.

Over the last seven years the Major Trauma Signposting Partnership delivered by Cardinal, has helped more than 8,000 patients at NHS Major Trauma Centres. Cardinal is pleased to have added the Major Trauma Centre at John Radcliffe Hospital, enabling the complex welfare support to reach a greater number of patients.

The Company is pleased to see the performance of Cardinal and the continued momentum in winning new trauma centres. As a result, the Group’s number of successful claims and cases coming to settlement will increase, in turn driving further growth in AUM. Cardinal is in discussions with a number of other Major Trauma Centres about the possible introduction of its services. The Company will update shareholders as appropriate.

Andrew Pemberton, Managing Director of Cardinal, said:

“We are delighted that such a prestigious hospital as the John Radcliffe has chosen Cardinal to help support their patients. Our team is looking forward to getting going as quickly as we can so that patients can start getting access to bedside welfare advice and support.”

Richard Fraser, CEO of Frenkel Topping, said:

“”The new partnership with John Radcliffe hospital, the second in as many months, is testament to the hard work and dedication from Andrew and his team at Cardinal. With such a rigorous due diligence process, this achievement demonstrates our team’s expertise and capabilities showcases the strength of our business. We recognise the contributions made by each member involved in this success.

Bringing the number of partnerships to 10 across the nation, this allows us to extend our reach to support even more patients immediately after traumatic injury, through support from the Cardinal team and their partnership with the Frenkel Topping Charitable Foundation.” ”
