Following the CMA inquiry into the private healthcare sector there are a number of changes that have come into effect on 6 April 2015 that apply to all hospital operators in the UK.
The order regulates the relationship that healthcare providers have with Consultants and GP’s and requires publication on the website to permit transparency.
None of the Consultant team has an equity stake in the clinic
The services that are provided at 108 Medical Chambers to the Consultants that base their practices here include
Low Value Services – refreshment facilities, use of office equipment & stationery, in-house training and marketing, access to IT facilities and storage of patient records.
Higher Value Services – secretarial/ administrative support and use of consulting rooms
Consultants are charged and pay a management charge of 10% of their gross fee revenue towards their usage of these services. An extra charge of 2.5% is levied for additional accounts department support where the Consultant wishes to retain their own fee ledger. For consultants who do not utilise any of the back office services an hourly rate room charge of £25 per hour or part thereof is levied. We consider that this represents a fair market rate.
