Private practice committee

Our priorities

The private practice committee considers and reports on matters of direct concern to the profession in the field of private general and consulting practice, whether whole or part time, and such other matters as may be referred to it by council from time to time.

The committee engages with key stakeholders in private healthcare to represent the views of the profession. This includes private medical insurers, private hospitals providers, royal colleges and specialty associations.
