Promiscuous healthcare

Good news for the elderly in North Swindon: Virgin Healthcare have abandoned plans to run a health centre in Swindon. It seems that Virgin were mainly interested in practices with large numbers of ‘young male professionals’* in their catchment, which is why they were interested in Taw Hill Practice. With their chief executive leaving too*, it looks like it’ll be quite some time before garish red starts appearing outside doctors’ surgeries.
