Dr John Casimir Janssen

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.


Dr Janssen provides certain services to The Lister Hospital on an Advisory basis relating to the maintenance of clinical standards. This includes development of policies, systems, training and advice to the Senior Management Team and - where necessary - the Medical Advisory Committee.


He provides advice and guidance to LOC on policies, procedures and protocols consistent with evidence-based guidelines and comply with regulatory and certification standards. Furthermore, advising on the maintenance and implementation of relevant clinical and safety standards in line with legislation and medical guidelines.


He also provides advice on the growth of the hospital and its services, and on the efficiency of those operations.


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 £0. No payment was made in 2021 for these services.


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.
