And if you want to see where this race to the bottom, and limitless greed for more profit leads, then look at the scandal of the children's homes in Rochdale. What level of 'care' was provided?
The homes were set up by private equity firms like Care UK as Rochdale has the cheapest property prices in the country. They then became dumping grounds for troubled teenagers from all over the country. Where, it transpired, they were being systematically groomed, then brutally gang raped. All while the supposed 'carers' watched on and did nothing. And this has been going on for years!
The price charged to every local council, per child, per year... ? Between £250,000 and £400,000. A year! To receive a level of care that does nothing as you are brutalised.
It's a profitable business, wilful neglect. Somebody made an awful lot of money out of all those young girls having their lives destroyed. And it would appear that the system that allowed this to happen is now the template for 'care' in the NHS
Sometimes the society I live in absolutely sickens me!
