Letter from the CMA to medical practitioners on competition law

Open letter to medical practitioners in private practice about their obligations under competition law.



In 2015, the Competition and Markets Authority fined a membership association of consultant eye doctors £382,500 for breaking competition law.

This letter to medical practitioners working in private practice explains how certain agreements between competing consultants can break the law and what lessons can be learned from the case to help others know what to avoid.
