It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.
Mr Windsor is an excellent surgeon. His technical skills are second to none, he is calm and considerate and always takes good time to make sure that patients understand what is happening to them and what is proposed for treatment.
