The dangers of Accountable Care Organisations - in a nutshell

Here it is in a nutshell. The dangers of Jeremy Hunt’s Americanised NHS - the Accountable Care Organisations… preceded by Accountable Care Systems, coming to Devon soon.

The sentence that jumps out at me is half way down the first column. “They will be legally not NHS organisations.”

This has huge implications for the NHS and for all those who rely on it.

Cllr Martin Shaw and I proposed at January’s Devon County Council Health and Adult Care Scrutiny Committee meeting that there should be a special meeting in March to examine the Devon Accountable Care System, due to be arriving soon.

So far there has been radio silence on the matter. Time for a follow up…
