Press statement in response to CMA provisional findings
10 November 2015
A HCA spokesman said;
“We note the new and alternative remedies in the CMA’s provisional findings. Since this process began, over three years ago, London’s private healthcare market has continued to grow and diversify.
“Recent investments by the Cleveland Clinic and VPS in large new facilities, and Spire’s plans for a new central London hospital by 2018, are yet further signs that London offers an open, accessible and competitive market”.
“We are confident that we compete on price given our ability to treat complex patients with higher care needs where others cannot. The CMA itself states that their ‘IPA may not fully account for differences in patient complexity between HCA and TLC.’”
