Hospital Compliance

Our cancer consultants

In October 2014 the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) published the Private Healthcare Market Investigation Order 2014, which requires private hospitals to publish certain information about their referring clinicians. Bupa Cromwell Hospital takes compliance with the Order seriously, and the required information is included below. 

Please click on the tabs below for further details.

Bupa Cromwell Hospital has a number of consulting rooms within the hospital premises, which are available to any referring clinician with Practice Privileges (PPs). We also provide access to secretarial services to those with PPs.  

The charges for consulting rooms and secretarial services are listed below. Note that both are available by the half hour as well as the hour. See Table 1 below.

Bupa Cromwell Hospital also offers to collect professional fees on behalf of referring clinicians. This service is available  to all clinicians with PPs at the Hospital at an administration fee of 4% of each patient professional fee charged + VAT.
