"14m people live in poverty. 1.5m people live in destitution..." rightly highlights low wages and the devastating impact of poverty as highlighted in the UN report - it's a subject tries to ignore, but it is causing so much harm to families across the country.

It's remarkable that despite offering near instant 24/7 GP access, more than 1 in 4 patients opted to leave . "The most frequent reason for de-registering or intending to de-register from GP at Hand was that patients were unhappy with the quality of care"

This misses the point. Private insurance is not the issue. It is the marketisation of Healthcare that I fear most. Patients being viewed as an Income Opportunity, or Costly liability. Healthcare should be prioritised according to clinical need, not on the basis of profitability

The BBC reports that patients unable to access NHS care have raised £20 million through crowd funding to pay for care privately. As NHS underfunding continues it is sadly inevitable that more patients will have to pay out of pocket to get healthcare

HC-One Care Home chain recently paid out £48m in dividends to its shareholders. It is also "sponsoring" a Parliamentary inquiry into the social care funding crisis. It is unclear whether the Inquiry will look at profit extraction by care home companies
