How we work with Consultants
Compliance with the CMA Order
In October 2014, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) published the Private Healthcare Market Investigation Order 2014 (the Order).
To comply with the Order, private hospitals must disclose certain information relating to referring clinicians (as defined by the Order) for the benefit of patients.
In accordance with the Order, the information set out below is provided by Schoen Clinic and is broken into higher value services and low value services.
Higher value services
Schoen Clinic does not currently provide consulting rooms to referring clinicians to use for their own practice.
Currently all referring clinicians are contracted to provide services to Schoen Clinic and use our consulting rooms for these services.
Low value services
Low value services provided by Schoen Clinic to our referring clinicians include:
- Basic workplace amenities such as coffee, tea, refreshments and stationery
- General marketing support
- Operational and administrative services to facilitate the appropriate processing of patient admissions
- Space and facilities for clinical meetings such as MDT
- IT and communication services
Hospitality networking events
On occasion, we host group networking or training events for Consultants and local primary care professionals. Refreshments are provided at these events and we sometimes use and pay for external venues if there is insufficient space in our hospitals.
These occasions provide a forum to discuss the latest industry topics, technologies, procedures and treatments in a relaxed and informative environment.
Our networking events are an excellent way to enhance primary care professionals' understanding and knowledge of our hospital and the specialist services that we provide to help them care for their patients.
We will provide dates of these events as they occur.
