The Independent Healthcare Association (IHA) was a 'powerful trade body for independent healthcare providers'. The IHA boasted of having 1,500 member organisations accounting for a quarter of independent health and social care provision. [1] The IHA director was Tim Evans between 1993 and 2002.[2] In January 2004 it disbanded following the departure of Nuffield Hospitals and the General Healthcare group.[3]


Controversy

In 2003 the General Healthcare Group (GHG) became the second of the big four private healthcare providers to leave the Independent Healthcare Association following the departure of Nuffield Hospitals.[4]
