By collecting data from the more than 600 hospitals carrying out private tests and operations (known as procedures) and the 12,000 doctors (consultants) who work at them, we are able to help patients, and their families, better understand healthcare in the UK so that they can make more informed choices. We then publish information on our website for patients to use when they are deciding where to be treated and who by.

The background to our work is a legal requirement (Order) set out by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) which came into effect in April 2015.

Our latest Annual Progress Report sets out all the work we have done over the past year and is divided into three main sections which are: 

  • Serving the patient
  • Supporting stakeholders
  • Delivering the Order 

This report also has sections on our people, our data security and our finances. These help to give the complete picture of our organisation, and include our new vision, mission and values.

The report was officially launched at our AGM on Tuesday 5 December and is available to download below.
