The Board of Sutherland Health Group, a national supplier of patient hygiene, sexual health and diagnostic products to customers including the NHS announces that at the Company's Annual General Meeting held earlier today at the offices of Clydesdale Bank Paddington all resolutions were duly passed.

Chairman John French provided the following statement:

"We are of course delighted at the achievements of the last financial year, and I am pleased to report that the new financial year has started well. Continued sales growth during the first few months coupled with significant progress on improving margins are benefiting the current performance. The marketing team has been strengthened to support the efforts of our Chief Executive and Marketing Director who are actively engaged in introducing new products to broaden our range to existing and potential new customers.

During the year we have continued to benefit from the support of our private shareholders with the added support of new investors Worship Street Investments and the t1ps Small Companies EIS Fund, thereby broadening our shareholder profile.

Prospects for the ongoing growth of the business are encouraging,
so with the recognition of what has been achieved from modest beginnings, your Board is keen to capitalise on as many opportunities as possible. As an example the Board is looking to expand its presence into complimentary areas such as Care Homes and General Practitioners. With this in mind it is looking to develop relationships to enhance distribution.

I hope to be able to expand on developments alongside the announcement of our half year figures during November. As always, on behalf of my colleagues and myself I would to thank our shareholders and our staff for their support."
The Directors of the Issuer accept responsibility for this announcement.
