Headline

NHS has 'a lot to learn' from 'phenomenal' Babylon model, says RCGP chair

Comment

'NHS practices receive six times more funding for each 85-year-old woman than they do for a 15-44 year old man." So the man who took over Hinchingbrooke hospital while CEO of Circle, now given another shoe-in by NHS England as CEO of Babylon, has no clue how NHS General Practice is funded. Is this ignorance, or meant to be deliberately misleading? I've heard it quoted repeatedly, which suggests the latter. The worst aspect of these disruptive innovators is that they think chaos is great and so are wilfully blind to the damage that their greedy business models inflict.
