The huge expansion in both workforces would mean those in need get the care they require and ensure that standards of health treatment do not drop. But boosting staff numbers so dramatically would require the government to put up to £86.4bn more into the services, according to the Health Foundation thinktank.

Richard Madeley Lays Into BBC Over Corporate Rebrand: 'Everybody Hates Them'
Richard Madeley has laid into his BBC rivals over the broadcaster’s corporate rebrand, comparing the corporation to a team of football supporters that “everybody hates”. The BBC has redesigned its logo and visual identity across its channels in an attempt to modernise itself, after research found that audiences believed “some its services look old fashioned and out of date”.However, Richard tore into the new-look logo, claiming he could barely tell the difference from the original. Speaking on the ITV breakfast show on Wednesday, he said: “I mean, I can barely look at it.”His co-host Susanna Reid, who used to front BBC Breakfast, then compared the overhaul to something out of the BBC parody sitcom W1A.“The future is so bright I have to wear shades!” Richard continued, adding: ’Well, what is the difference?“Can you imagine a designer going to the BBC exec and saying, ‘I think you’ll like this’ and them going, ‘oh my God, that was worth half a million’.“Didn’t anyone look at someone else in the room and say ‘they’re going to laugh at us?’”Richard then jibed: “Well, the BBC are like Millwall supporters, everybody hates them but they don’t care.”Here’s a look at what’s to come across @BBC TV, online and mobile

Morgan Bullock: ‘I watched Riverdance and never saw somebody who looked like me’
The Virginia-born Irish dancer explains how posting a TikTok video on her mum’s advice led to an invitation to join the hit show’s 25th-anniversary castMorgan Bullock almost didn’t post the TikTok video that would change her life. “I just didn’t think it was that good,” she says. “I was making it for fun and I sent it to my mum and she was like, ‘You should post it.’” In the video shared in May last year, the Virginia-born Irish dancer performs to the Savage remix by Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé. Choreographing slick tap beats against the viral hip-hop track, it sent the internet into a frenzy. Despite the overwhelmingly positive response she received, the now 22-year-old’s online fame brought comments that as a black Irish dancer, she was guilty of “cultural appropriation”.In response, Bullock tweeted a rebuttal that brought even more attention to the video – including an invitation to perform with Riverdance in her home state. But at the time she was unaware that her videos would also serve as an audition for her to become an official cast member. One morning before work, she received an email asking if she was interested in joining the 25th-anniversary tour of the show that ended prematurely in 2020 due to Covid. “I was of course like, ‘Yes, is that even a question?’” she laughs, speaking on Zoom during the UK tour. “I had to explain to my boss. I came into work with tears.” Continue reading...
