Independent Health Care Committee

The aim of the Independent Health Care Committee is to represent the interests of patients with colorectal symptoms or diseases that are treated in private provider units either funded by the NHS, through private insurers or self-financed private care. This aim is fulfilled through ensuring that standards set by the ACPGBI to reflect best practice are maintained for colorectal patients out with NHS run establishments.
