This has been the whole point of infiltrating private healthcare into the NHS through the Health and Social Care bill. It has nothing to do with saving taxpayers' money and everything to do with turning taxpayers' money into private profit. It would be interesting to see how many past and present cabinet ministers' wives/husbands/civil partners are directors and shareholders of private health businesses.

The Daily Telegraph in 2011 said of disgraced cabinet minister Liam Fox's close friend Adam Werrity:

His first business interest was health care, and he registered both UK Health Group Ltd — in which Dr Fox once owned shares — and UK Health Supply Services Ltd. By coincidence, Dr Fox was the Conservative shadow health secretary between 1999 and 2003, writing his party’s health policies and influencing national debate.

Is it a facial enhancement clinic?
By grabthars Hammer...she certainly needs a lot of work done in that department.


Oh, bitchy bitchy. Unfortunately for madame Cherie, so true. And how much money do this detestable, vile couple need?

Thanks, I needed that. Didn't particularly want it, though. How utterly depressing to see so many of the great and the good, as they like to be known, with curly tails in the air and snouts buried in muck (apologies if such a comparison is unfair to pigs). Parasitic bloodsucking invertebrates, anyone?

You'd be worried about coming away with more than your shopping, that's for sure.


I suppose if Lord Sainsbury were really smart (and I'd imagine he probably is) then he'll be using all his baked bean selling skills to ensure the diabetic clinic is positioned next to to the fizzy drinks and crisps aisle, alcoholics are provided with seating in the wines/spirits section and Cherie carries out the STD testing close to the Durex products. Cold remedies for snotty nosed kids and so on.........

Perhaps Tesco will have to open an A&E dept. in order to compete.........

Aye, I'm really looking forward to ASDA's "greeter" announcing this week's roll-backs on pile-cream and Steradent, and their staff wearing new badges bearing the legend "Happy To Heal..."

The MPs are all directing there policies for self profit, this country really needs a revolution. Telling you one thing if iam on my death bed because i havent the insurance i'll take one or too MPs with me.

I had this thought.


The guidelines being promoted these days will mean that almost everyone over the age of forty will be taking statins, and possibly blood pressure reduction agents. There is a view that these are of extremely limited benefit to over 90% of people (asymptomatic "patients"). The risk reduction is always talked about in relative terms, so that often 20 to 30% reduction is quoted as achievable. in absolute terms it is not so impressive - I found one scoring chart which showed my absolute risk changing from about 2.5% to 1.7% if i reduced my not particularly high blood pressure to the guidelines.

Now if I am tested and found to have borderline hypertension, and given a prescription, how will this affect my future private insurance costs, as I now have a "pre-existing" condition? i guess we can all answer that. And if i refuse the medication, it is probable that i will be refused insurance. This is a great scam for the pharmaceutical companies, is it not? They have an interest in pushing the lower boundary for treatment of all sorts of conditions as low a possible.

That blog is amazing. Rinse and repeat in other areas of interest. No wonder they want the internet controlled.

Tipping point, is it that far away? One last dash for the cash.
