The PPC (private practice committee) considers and reports on matters of concern to those working in private general and consulting practice.

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.


Our priorities

  • Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) - to participate fully in consultations with regards to the CMA’s order.
  • Private medical insurers (PMIs) - to gather information including fee capping and restrictive fee practices imposed by PMIs.
  • Private Healthcare Information Network (PHIN) - to continue to engage with PHIN on the implementation of the CMA’s ‘Information remedy’, to ensure that doctors’ views are effectively represented.
