UK report warns DeepMind Health could gain ‘excessive monopoly power’ | TechCrunch
DeepMind’s foray into digital health services continues to raise concerns. The latest worries are voiced by a panel of external reviewers appointed by the Google-owned AI company to report on its operations after its initial data-sharing arrangements with the U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS) ran into a major public controversy in 2016.

Hundreds of breast cancer patients 'denied reconstruction' - BBC News
But data obtained by the charity found that 47 out of 208 clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in England had policies in place which restricted these services - either by putting a time limit on them, limiting the number of surgeries allowed or denying access to balancing surgery.

Another nine CCGs indicated they could introduce similar policies.

What I owe the NHS, by Nadiya Hussain, Clive James and others
I love the NHS because we pay for it with our taxes, and because the care we receive is the same whether we’ve paid a million pounds or nothing. If we want to save the NHS, we need to celebrate tax. We need to think of it not as money the government steals from us, but as our contribution to a safe and just and healthy society. We need to think of tax-reducing loopholes as stealing from hospitals and schools. We need those who are well-off to pay more, and I include myself in that category. An extra 1% on the top rate, 2%, 5%, whatever it takes.

Mental health patients still sent hundreds of miles for treatment | Society | The Guardian
Despite government promises to end practice, figures show almost no change since 2016 [... and more beds were cut!] [...] However, since this pledge, the number of mental health beds in England has fallen. There were 18,082 mental health beds available in January, February and March, 200 fewer than the 18,282 that existed in October, November and December 2017, other NHS Digital data shows.

Hunt and Hammond 'gridlocked' over NHS funding rise | Society | The Guardian
Prof Anita Charlesworth, the Health Foundation’s chief economist, said: “Annual increases of 3.3% a year above inflation are the minimum required to prevent services from further decline. But stemming decline should not be the goal for the NHS in its 70th year.

“After eight years of austerity, people are waiting too long for care, the NHS doesn’t have enough clinical staff, public health budgets have been cut and just four in 10 people with a mental health problem get any help at all.

“If we are to make any inroads into these problems and secure the health service for the future, funding needs to increase by at least 4% a year.” //&! https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/jun/15/the-guardian-view-on-the-nhs-cash-boost-pay-for-it-with-deficit-spending - The decision is not an act of compassion. It is not a birthday gift – although it might be sold as such because the NHS is 70 this July. It is not because there is a Brexit dividend – there isn’t. It is because the NHS is falling apart before people’s eyes.
