The National Health Service
The NHS is under a vast amount of pressure due to the lack of funding by the UK government. Last year, British authorities funded the NHS of a total of £700M but unfortunately the bailouts to help the NHS cope with winter pressures have not reached front line services in some parts of the country, Britain’s top emergency doctor has said, as the political dispute over crumbling A&E performance deepened.
The number of UK citizens aged 65 and over has increased by 5.5% in the last 50 years, thus increasing the demand of both private and public healthcare sectors.

Greece Snap Election 25th Jan
The UK can suffer a minor correction within the next couple of weeks before the Greece Election calls its way.

However if Greece isn't successful in the negotiation then we could see heavy in the markets due to uncertainty as Greece waves goodbye to the Eurozone.
This will have a bad influence on the Euro currency which I hope that traders and investors have already acted upon.
I'm already short on the UK since 6560 along with the EUR
