BHTA reviews the Code of Practice regularly and a number of potential alterations have been proposed during the past year.

There are some slight changes required as a result of changes in legislation, too. A summary of the proposed alterations is given in the consultation document which can be downloaded below, together with a copy of the Code amended to show the alterations in red.

BHTA Response to the Small Business Commissioner Consultation

Dear Sirs

The British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) is very supportive of the proposal for a Small Business Commissioner. We would welcome a focus beyond payment-related issues to include wider supply chain issues such as business practices which are against the law (eg breaches of contract such as late payment) and those which are considered unfair (eg long payment terms).
