Compliance with CMA Private Healthcare Market Investigation Order 2014.

In October 2014, the Competition and Markets Authority (the “CMA”) published the Private Healthcare Market Investigation Order 2014 (the “Order”) following its investigation into the private healthcare industry. The CMA’s Order legally requires every clinic or hospital offering privately funded admitted care to disclose certain information to The Private Healthcare Information Network (PHIN). PHIN are the independent, government-mandated source of information about private healthcare, working to empower patients to make better-informed choices of care provider. PHIN is the CMA approved Information Organisation (IO) to gather and publish this data. Full details about the investigation and the Order can be found on the CMA web page. The information provided by Lindsey Private Patients below is mandated by the order.
