NHS workforce 'at crunch point' - BBC News
The UK's medical profession is at a "crunch point", facing the prospect of too few doctors to treat rising numbers of patients, the regulator says.

The General Medical Council says the supply of medics has failed to keep up with demand and warns against the over-reliance on overseas staff post-Brexit.

The GMC's Charlie Massey called it a "crucial moment" for UK healthcare.

It comes despite government promises in England to increase the number of doctors in training.

Option Games: Common Stock Values Get Murkier — The Information
Valuing common stock has gotten trickier for startups. The growing number and complexity of rights on preferred shares are causing companies to adjust their reasoning around how much their common stock is worth, according to firms providing the valuations and lawyers overseeing them. But companies still have a lot of discretion, a reminder that how startups calculate their value frequently bears little relation to big funding headlines. [...] Valuations of startup firms’ common stock for employee option grants has been complicated by increasing complexity of rights on preferred stock and secondary market transactions. [...] [ !!! Snapchat offered common stock only in recent (May 2015) investment, Alibaba & two hedge funds were ok with it. But further termsheet details (liquidation preferences) unknown. Existing holders of common stock (employees) could be diluted massively, in future, ie Snapchat has a down round in the future/eventual IPO - on.wsj.com/1KICv8H &! bit.ly/1iiJw3G ]

// cost of entry? // unable to make it happen? // Can't you write software from anywhere? // problem, heavily diluted early on approaching A/B, traditional shops don't like the cap table of pre-seed, angels, seed, accelerator & Micro VC's already owning ~+40% ... you come to a traditional A/B shop and not one of the existing investors is actually leading the round or committed in paper do double down? // // from a financial perspective/investment/math --- in the PRIVATE MARKET thrown under the bus by NIRP, QE, hunt for yield and FOMO (looking for their female unicorn or own Zuck) everyone can run 100 burger stands with unlimited/stellar returns in their spreadsheet model (bc cost of capital being 0 or negative).
