Most patients in UK private hospitals are paying more than they should for treatment because of a lack of local competition, an inquiry has found.


More than 100 private hospitals around the country are in areas with little rival healthcare provision, says the Competition Commission (CC).


Many of these hospitals are owned by three major groups, the CC said.


It said the buying power of health insurance firms did not offset the hospitals' strong position.
