Private Healthcare Market Investigation Order 2014

As per the CMA Private Healthcare Market Investigation Order 2014 (PHMIO) it is important that we are transparent about our relationship with our consultants and therefore we have set out some of the ways in which we work together.

Lower Value Services

We provide a number of support services to our consultants, for which we do not make a charge. These include:

  • Support with patient admission and billing
  • General stationery
  • Free/subsidised tea, coffee, on-site meals
  • General marketing such as consultant directories and general promotion events
  • Outpatient clinic administration support

Higher Value Services

Consultants are charged £20 per hour for using consulting rooms at this hospital (except in relation to NHS patients), which represents a fair market rate. Consulting rooms are made available on a non-discriminatory basis and on equivalent terms in accordance with the Order.

Financial Interests

There are no Consultants with financial interests in equipment used or services and facilities operated within or at The Papworth Clinic.
