London, England

The Competition and Markets Authority is reviewing the proposed merger of Frimley Park Hospital NHS Foundation Trust with Heatherwood and Wexham Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, following notification from the hospitals

 

The CMA has today issued an ‘Invitation to Comment’ which seeks views from third parties.

Frimley Park and Heatherwood and Wexham Hospitals serve patients across a wide area, including Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire.

The CMA’s role is to examine the impact that the merger could have on patient choice and the quality of healthcare services provided. The CMA undertakes an objective and evidence-based assessment of the effects of NHS mergers on competition and aims primarily to ensure that such mergers do not result in lower levels of quality of healthcare services for patients.

The CMA is the new independent competition and consumer agency that has taken over the Office of Fair Trading and Competition Commission’s role in reviewing mergers across all sectors of the economy, including healthcare.

The deadline for comments to be received on the proposed merger is 11 April 2014. The CMA’s current administrative target for reaching a decision in this case is 29 May 2014. Comments can be sent to clementine.debrosses@cma.gsi.gov.uk
