What Price Virgin Care? Only One Wound Dressing!

Rosie Cooper  asked Jeremy Hunt “What advice would the Secretary of State give to my constituents who receive their urgent care from Virgin Care, and are told that wounds should be dressed only once and that, in the event that they need to re-attend, they should purchase further dressings from the local chemist? Free at the point of delivery?”

Jeremy Hunt “I suggest that the hon. Lady gets in touch with the details. What I would say is that when care is not satisfactory—whether it is delivered by the public sector or the independent sector—we have an independent inspection regime to root out the problems”.

So what is the date of the next independent inspection to root out Virgin Care’s version of “free at the point of subsequent delivery” or is its bottom line more important than real health care?
