CCP non-case specific referrals of competition issues

The Department of Health, or Monitor, may ask the CCP to investigate non-case specific matters that may be having an adverse impact on co-operation or competition.

In undertaking these investigations, we will publish the terms of reference on our website as well as a timetable for the investigation, and we will invite submissions from interested parties.

In our report, we will advise the relevant sponsor on the matter in question. Where an adverse effect is identified, we will make recommendations as to the action that should be taken by the sponsor or others to address the issues.

We will publish our report on any non-case specific referrals on our website.
