No 10 hires healthcare lobbyist and prompts privatisation concern

Rishi Sunak has appointed Bill Morgan, a founding partner of the PR and lobbying firm Evoke Incisive Health, a private healthcare lobbyist with links to a series of controversial clients to advise him in Downing Street, raising concerns over further privatisation within the NHS.
