Legal and Regulatory

Care Quality Commission (CQC)

All Ramsay hospitals are regulated by the CQC. For detail of our registrations, please visit the CQC’s website which contains details of all hospitals operated by Ramsay Health Care UK Operations Limited, including details of CQC inspections. 

From 1 April 2015, all CQC-regulated providers are also required to display their CQC rating on their website. 


From 6 April 2021, the rules for engaging individuals through personal service companies are changing. Ramsay UK will be responsible for determining whether the off-payroll rules (also referred to as IR35) apply to services being provided by a contractor through a personal service company to Ramsay UK.

If the off-payroll working rules apply, contractor’s fees will be subject to tax and National Insurance contributions.

Ramsay is required to issue all contractors (who currently provide their services through a personal services company) with a Statement Determination Statement. Contractors are able to dispute the Status Determination given to them if they disagree with it. Further details on disagreeing with your Status Determination Statement can be found here.
