Apple

Apple is launching a group of health clinics called AC Wellness for its employees and their families this spring, according to several sources familiar with the company's plans.

The company quietly published a website, acwellness.com, with more details about its initiative and a careers page listing jobs including primary care doctor, exercise coach and care navigator, as well as a phlebotomist to administer lab tests on-site.

This new primary care group - a group of clinical staff that is run independently from Apple but is dedicated to Apple employees - will initially only serve Apple's employees in Santa Clara County, where its headquarters are located. Initially, it has two clinics in the county.

Scrip healthcare.

This is insanity.

It is not just a "free" (paid for via taxation) system that is needed, but the system needs to be non profit. Something the NHS is rapidly losing as more parts are handed over to the likes of Virgin Healthcare (who sue if they fail to win a contract), and the vultures of the big USA companies are circling overhead. This is why I deeply dislike the use of "free at the point of delivery". It is only part of the equation.
