Medics hit out at Hunt’s US-style re­forms

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

ACA­DEMICS have slammed Jeremy Hunt’s plans to let Amer­i­can-style bod­ies run parts of the NHS.

The Health Sec­re­tary’s Ac­count­able Care Or­gan­isa- tions of health trusts and pri­vate providers would as­sume joint re­spon­si­bil­ity for a lo­cal area’s pop­u­la­tion.

A group of health pro­fes­sion­als are seek­ing a ju­di­cial re­view to halt the bid. An ar­ti­cle in the BMJ today says: “There has been no pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion about whether the law and the NHS should un­dergo this ma­jor change.”
