More worrying to common Britons, the bills for such 5 star treatment are being paid by the taxpayers who are already reeling under severe cuts by the government including more than Ģ20billion of cuts in the health care sector with thousands of health workers facing the danger of losing their jobs.

Says a spokesman for TaxPayers' Alliance, "It speaks volumes about the extortionate cost of our health service."
