The Private Healthcare Information Network (PHIN) is the independent, government-mandated source of information about private healthcare, working to empower patients to make better-informed choices of care provider.
PHIN is a not-for-profit organisation that exists to make more robust information about private healthcare available than ever before, and to improve data quality and transparency.
PHIN’s vision is that all patients considering private healthcare will have access to trustworthy, comprehensive information on both quality and price to help them make their decisions.
Over the next five years, PHIN will become the first service that patients and doctors turn to when they want to understand and choose private healthcare. We will help to raise standards and expectations for the availability, transparency and usability of health information, and act as a model for information governance.
Through our analysis and publication of information, we will develop professional and public understanding of private healthcare, and drive improvement in the quality of services delivered and the outcomes of care and treatment delivered.
