Private and Independent Practice

Private and Independent Practice Sub-committee

The Executive continually review the role of the various committees within the BAD, particularly with a view to ensuring that they fit within the business structure of the organisation.

As part of this review, the position of the Private and Independent Practice Subcommittee (PIPSC) was considered. Given the chances in healthcare provision, and particularly the increasing role of private providers within the NHS, it seemed sensible that private practice now fitted most usefully within the Clinical Services Unit, where questions about service delivery are managed.

The PIPSC therefore met for the last time in July 2009. The current Chair of the PIPSC has become a full member of the Clinical Services Group.

The Private Practice course will continue, but run directly by BAD House. For information on courses please contact Clinical Services at
