More anti-competitive practice in UK healthcare?


The CMA investigation is looking at anti-competitive arrangements which may infringe Chapter I of the Competition Act 1998 (CA98). No assumption should be made at this stage that the CA98 has been infringed.

The CMA has not reached a view as to whether there is sufficient evidence of an infringement of competition law for it to issue a statement of objections to any of the parties under investigation. 

Not all cases result in the CMA issuing a statement of objections. The CMA will decide in October whether or not to proceed. 

This is the third CMA investigation into the sector and the CMA remains silent on what prompted the latest investigation.
