Co-operation and Competition Panel | accessed 18 December 2009

Ealing PCT’s provider services arm, Harrow PCT’s provider services arm and Ealing Hospital NHS Trust are proposing to merge to form an Integrated Care Organisation.

Consistent with its draft interim merger guidelines, the CCP will examine the costs and benefits of the proposed merger to patients and taxpayers, in order to ascertain whether it is consistent with Principles 9 and 10 of the Principles and Rules of Cooperation and Competition.

In doing so, the CCP will consider the effect of the transaction on patient choice and competition for community or secondary health services in Ealing and Harrow or a wider area.

The CCP would welcome submissions in writing from interested individuals and organisations on this issue or on any other matter relevant to the CCP’s assessment of this transaction under the Principles and Rules of Cooperation and Competition. To submit evidence please email Ealing&Harrow@ccpanel.gsi.gov.uk.

The closing date for submissions is 8 December 2009.
