CMA Compliance

Relationship with our Consultants

The Consultants who treat patients at St Joseph’s Hospital do so having been granted Practicing Privileges and they practice their specialities in accordance with the hospital’s terms.

None of the consultants are employed by St Joseph’s Hospital since they are self-employed practitioners.

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) recently issued an Order regulating the relationships between private hospitals and consultants who treat private patients or refer them for tests at the hospitals facilities (so-called “Referring Clinicians”). In accordance with this Order, hospitals and referring clinicians are prohibited from entering into any incentive schemes that are designed to encourage consultants to refer private patients to, or treat private patients at, the hospitals.

St Joseph’s Hospital does not operate any such schemes with referring clinicians.
In addition, the CMA requires hospital operators to disclose certain information about arrangements they have with referring clinicians. These arrangements include: ownership interests in the operator; the provision of certain “high value” facilities to referring clinicians; the availability of “low value” basic amenities for referring clinicians; and any remuneration for services provided by referring clinicians to the hospital. This information applies specifically to consultants who are not hospital employees and who have the ability to refer privately insured or self-paying patients for treatment or tests at the hospital.

Set out below is information about the arrangements we have with our referring clinicians.

Ownership interests

St Joseph’s Hospital is owned in partnership with a number of its referring clinicians.
