Private nurses are being hired to feed and wash elderly patients in NHS hospitals.
The patients, or their relatives, are spending up to £200 a day to ensure they receive basic nursing care that health service staff fail to provide.
This has been happening in the US for a while. When I worked in a SNF, quite a few families hired private non-nurse caregivers. When my mother was an a SNF, we had to feed her because the staff wouldn't.
