CCG may struggle to 'pay its bills' due to financial pressure of Babylon GP at Hand

Comment

Babylon is a form of heath provision cancer caused by the fusion of two native viral memes (greed and tech-fetishism). It leads to the eventual death of the host CCG as the tumour rapidly expands forming a ball of healthy 20-30 something tissue with large patent financial vessels leaving the rest of the CCG body to wither and necrose as nutrients and oxygen are drawn away. It will take many years for a cure to be found. DEFRA estimates 90% of CCGs are destined to perish before an appropriate treatment is found. "The problem is there are several variants of the virus and government funding is actually acting to increase their virulence, until the source of this funding is dealt with there is little hope" an unnamed source at DEFRA explained.
