BBC staff get private healthcare

The BBC has spent over £2.1m on private health insurance for its staff in the last three years, the Taxpayers’ Alliance (TPA) will reveal today. A further £150,000 has been spent by the Welsh language channel S4C, to fund private healthcare cover for some of its employees. “Viewers already pay for the NHS through their taxes and if it’s good enough for us then it’s good enough for them,” said the TPA’s Matthew Sinclair.
