Branson sues NHS: kick out the profiteers

The NHS has paid an unknown amount to Richard Branson - for nothing. The multibillionaire sued six Surrey clinical commissioning groups after Virgin lost a bid to outsource more NHS services.

Branson's net worth is about 4 billion, Forbes estimates. NHS England, on the other hand, is 4 billion in the hole according to its chief exec. You do the maths.
