Wednesday 4 April 2012

We welcome the OFT’s referral of the private healthcare market to the competition commission following its recent investigation.

COMMENTING ON THE NEWS THAT THE OFT HAVE REFERRED THE PRIVATE HEALTHCARE MARKET TO THE COMPETITION COMMISSION, DR ROS ALTMANN, DIRECTOR-GENERAL OF SAGA SAID:

Anything that improves competition to ensure the cost of private healthcare can be sustainable in the future is a step in the right direction.  We fully support efforts to improve the availability of information to patients, to enable them to compare quality and cost of private services.  This is particularly important for the over 50s who are the biggest users of healthcare services in the country.
