To maintain fairness and transparency in their service, private healthcare providers are legally obliged to fund our work.

How are we funded?

Our funding model was created by the Competition and Markets Authority to ensure that we can publish accurate and independent information. 

Each time a hospital treats a private patient, the hospital incurs a small fee which must be paid to PHIN. This means that our work is not funded from NHS or public health budgets, but from mandatory payments by private healthcare providers. 

We do not charge consultants for their profiles on our website. 

We are a not-for-profit company and we don’t receive any funding from marketing or referrals. All of our funding is used to maintain and improve our services.
