This is handy for Jeremy Hunt and his privatisation plan, isn’t it?

With his version of the National Health Service in England turning down treatment, people are already working out how to raise money to buy it, admittedly, abroad.

Jeremy won’t be worried, though.

When he finally manages to fully privatise healthcare here in the UK, people will know how to raise money and won’t need to travel as far for the appallingly expensive treatments he intends it to offer. So he can market it as a money-saver. Bonus!

Thousands of patients are turning to crowdfunding sites to raise cash for treatments turned down by the NHS .

JustGiving has seen a huge spike in the number of online fundraising pages set up for treatment abroad – up from just 304 in 2015 to 2,348 last year.
