CO-OPERATION AND COMPETITION PANEL FOR NHS FUNDED SERVICES

“The Panel helps ensure that the Principles and Rules of Co-operation and Competition for the provision of NHS-funded services support the delivery of high quality care for patients and value for money for taxpayers.

The Panel investigates potential breaches of the Principles and Rules, and makes independent recommendations to the Department of Health and Monitor on how such breaches should be resolved. It also reviews proposed mergers, and advises on the wider development of co-operation, patient choice and competition within the NHS.

In carrying out its responsibilities, the Panel works with all parts of the NHS, non-government service providers and others to drive improvements in service delivery.”
