                               Press Information

24 March 2004

                  Capita establishes a strong position in the
                      Workplace Health Market by acquiring
                         Aon Health Solutions Business

          Aon selects Capita as its preferred Health Solutions Partner

The Capita Group Plc ('Capita') announces that it has signed a contract to
acquire Aon Health Solutions ('AHS'), one of the UK's leading workplace health
risk management companies, for an undisclosed cash consideration. AHS provides a
full range of services designed to add value to organisations by protecting and
enhancing employee health and productivity. The acquisition firmly establishes
Capita in a rapidly growing sector of the health services market, where
outsourced occupational health solutions are increasingly being sought by both
private and public sector organisations. AHS will be renamed Capita Health
Solutions on completion of the acquisition.

Aon has also selected Capita as its preferred Health Solutions partner. Under a
contract of an initial two years, Capita will provide Aon, on an exclusive
basis, with a wide range of occupational health services for all their UK
businesses and staff. Additionally, Aon has signed a preferred supplier
agreement with Capita whereby Aon will promote and recommend Capita Health
Solutions' services through its extensive broker network.

With revenues of £15 million in the year to end December 2003, AHS will transfer
with net assets of approximately £2 million. The operation employs 232 staff,
including 145 healthcare professionals. AHS's occupational health services
include health assessment of job applicants, assessment of fitness for work
following illness and injury, early intervention and active case management of
sickness absence cases through to return to work, advice on long-term sickness
and early retirement issues and assessment of the working environment. In 2003,
AHS handled around 87,000 patient interactions and provided services to over 900

Demand for occupational health services continues to grow strongly, driven by a
number of key factors including: increased regulation and litigation, rising
premiums for employers' liability insurance and the growing recognition that
clear business benefits derive from reduced sickness absence, minimised health
related disruption and improved employee morale. AHS is one of the market
leaders in the field of occupational health, with a wide range of clients under
long-term contracts, particularly in professional and financial services, the
oil and chemical industries and across government.

AHS has a comprehensive national capability with strong footholds in specific
industries and geographies across the UK and an extensive nationwide network of
occupational health specialists. Its nationwide presence is run from six core
locations: Wilton and Billingham in Teesside, Winfrith in Dorset, Aberdeen,
Oxford and London.

Rod Aldridge, Executive Chairman of Capita commented,

'We are very excited about firmly establishing Capita in this growing sector of
the health services market through the acquisition of Aon Health Solutions and
further building our customer relationship with Aon, as their preferred Health
Solutions partner.

'With an estimated 33 million lost working days per annum resulting from
work-related illness in the UK, some 130,000 claims for compensation annually
against employers(1), and a current Government spend on disability of £19
billion per annum, there is increasing demand for occupational health programmes
to pre-empt health issues and achieve swifter rehabilitation back to work.
Organisations are increasingly seeking outsourcing partners to deliver such
programmes rather than build further in-house capacity.

'This acquisition provides Capita with considerable scale and depth, firmly
establishing the Group in the market for workplace-related health services
across both the private and public sectors. Aon Health Solutions has an
established and growing client base and experienced, high quality clinical staff
and a strong national capability. Their services considerably extend Capita's
current occupational health offering and complement our medical and employee
assistance help lines, health consultancy and workplace ergonomic services. This
extensive, complementary set of services positions us well to meet the growing
market requirements.'

Philip Gore-Randall, CEO of Aon Risk Services said:

'This sale is consistent with our global strategy of exiting non-core
businesses, to focus on our core businesses of insurance broking, risk
management and human capital consulting. We are confident that Capita will
continue to drive the growth of the business and its staff and we look forward
to working with them.'

The acquisition agreement has been signed for completion of all transfer
arrangements by 8 April 2004. The acquisition is anticipated to be earnings
neutral in the current year.
