    Unfortunately I know far too many people - myself included - who if they were treated earlier would have cost the NHS far less to treat as they wouldn't have need emergency care and/or expensive medication.

    Classic.
    I wouldn't exactly say circa £250 per day give or take fifty quid well paid given expenses no longer allowed to be put through the books. That's about the average for NHS contracting (outside London).

    I feel sorry for anyone contracting in the NHS, not only the IR35 hoohah but the modest rates, and everything designed by committee with constant meetings attended by hordes of permies each wanting a finger in every pie (With your user name, you must be all too familiar with that! )
    Work in the public sector? Read the IR35 FAQ here

    250 a day, can I ask why you didnt move into the private sector? Are they any benefits to working in the NHS?
