Dr Majid Kazmi

Transparency under the CMA Order 2014

 

All private healthcare operators are required under the Competition and Markets Authority Order 2014 (“The CMA Order”) to be transparent about the relationship between their doctor and the private healthcare operator. Therefore, prospective patients should be aware that (in addition to being permitted to consult with and to treat patients at our facilities) this doctor also has an advisory role with HCA UK and is paid by HCA UK for this advisory role. We describe the nature of the role below, and we indicate how much the doctor has been paid for performing the role since 1 January 2021.

 

As well as promoting successful working of the facility's Medical Advisory Committee, Integrated Governance Committee and advising the hospital's senior management team on all matters relating to Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation practice within the facility, Dr Kazmi is responsible for providing advice on clinical governance matters relating to Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation to conform with national standards and recommend new programmes to drive up clinical standards.

 

In addition, he supports the HCA team to recruit and retain staff as well as taking a lead role in medical staff credentialing. In his role, he will evaluate ongoing quality initiatives such as clinical audits and quality assurance programmes.

 

Dr Kazmi leads the facility's multi-disciplinary team to discuss the quality of care and decide the most appropriate treatment pathways for patients.

 

Dr Kazmi is the Clinical Director for the Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation service and as such will represent the Centre at medical conferences and other local, national or international meetings with clinical and academic experts.

 

HCA UK is charged by doctors in return for their expertise and advice, including on how to operate safe hospital facilities delivering complex care. All services provided under this agreement are charged to HCA UK. In 2022 (until 30 April) the total paid for these services has been £22,194. In 2021, the total paid for these services was £19,591.

 

If a doctor provides HCA UK with medical advisory services and also practises in the NHS, HCA UK requires that doctor to attest that he/she is not compromising his/her NHS commitments in so doing.
