The CMA Order requires private hospital operators to publish a description of specific corporate hospitality events (such as off-site conferences or annual dinners), together with the cost of providing those events, from 6 April 2015.
Under Ramsay’s clinical and corporate governance structure, each of our 36 hospitals has a local Medical Advisory Committee (LMAC) which meets regularly. Ramsay also operates a National Medical Advisory Committee (NMAC) of which some Chairs of the LMACs are members.
Ramsay hosted a group conference at a London hotel in December 2017, where 29 representatives of the LMACs and NMAC were invited along with their partners and senior managers from Ramsay. The conference addressed a number of topics including a clinical governance overview. LMAC and NMAC representatives are consultants who provide clinical advice and guidance or other support to our patients and Ramsay. They undertake this role willingly and without payment.
The cost of the conference in respect of attendance by a representative of the LMAC for Renacres Hospital and their partner (if applicable) was approximately £1,410.
