The Competition Commission may already be having an effect on transparency in pricing in the private healthcare sector. The newly formed - or, at least, renamed - Association of Independent Healthcare Organisations (AIHO) has announced some good news. We can now compare prices for self-pay procedures between the principal hospital groups.This may be the beginning of a move to make buying private healthcare easier and more straightforward. That is something that the Private Patients' Form warmly welcomes. When you know what it will cost, you can make your choice with more confidence. Have a look at the news item on our website http://www.privatepatientsforum.org/category/news 'how to compare hospital costs'. Let us know how you get on with this modest advance - it may be the forerunner of some real progress in transparency!
