'Competition warning' for NHS trusts17th August 2012
The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) has warned eight NHS trusts in the south-east of England about anti-competitive behaviour over the way they ran their private patient units.
The trusts - Brighton and Sussex, Frimley Park, East Sussex Healthcare, Portsmouth, Dartford and Gravesham, Southampton, Epsom and St Helier and North Hertfordshire - were reported to the OFT by a whistleblower after they exchanged information about pricing but have escaped a formal investigation by giving voluntary assurances they would no longer discuss pricing and agreeing to train their staff in competition law.
