SIR - Your columnist Tim Murgatroyd wrote – in regards to an article on Boris Johnson’s role as Prime Minister (T&A, July 31) – that Virgin Care, among other healthcare providers, is ‘profit hungry’. That is not the case and is actually inaccurate.

Virgin Care has never made a profit and the Virgin Group has actually invested more than £60 million across the UK in people and technology, supporting doctors and nurses in their jobs and significantly reducing waiting lists.

In addition, Richard Branson has pledged that if we do make any future profit over that investment, he will not take a dividend and instead invest this in NHS and local authority services, with frontline colleagues deciding how.
