Guiding you through NHS Competition Regulation

Merger Clearance

Aldwych Partners helps NHS Trusts and private health sector firms to gain merger clerance from the Competition & Markets Authority.

As former senior executives at the UK competition authorities and health sector regulator our team has extensive merger experience.

We understand how merger reviews work from the inside and outside.

Fair Playing Field

Aldwych Partners help healthcare providers, suppliers and commissioners compete on a fair playing field.

Our projects include advising on NHS tariffs, state-aid concerns, commissioning disputes, and patient choice issues.

We work with NHS trusts, commissioners, private healthcare providers, pathology suppliers, regulators, healthcare IT, and private equity firms.

Our Experience and Philosophy

NHS competition rules don't have to tie your organisation in knots. We provide clear advice in simple language that allows you to execute your strategy with minimal risk of competition problems.

Where your organisation is suffering from unfair behaviour, we can help find effective solutions, quickly and quietly, that maintain your working relationships with others in the health economy.

Since starting in July 2013, Aldwych Partners has advised on Acute, Mental Health and pathology mergers as well as helping NHS, independent and third sector organisations address patient choice, procurement and competition concerns.
