accountable care organisations the end of the nhs

Post by Admin on Mon Dec 04, 2017 8:58 am

Jeremy Hunt is in the middle of an enormous stealth-reorganisation of the NHS into ACOs (accountable care organisations), modelled along the lines of the hugely inefficient US healthcare system. According to healthcare experts:

Like Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships, the introduction of Accountable Care Organisations is being done in replacement of a single, English NHS, with the loss of all national risk pooling and finance pooling.

ACOs are designed to not automatically serve everyone in a given area, the way the NHS would have done. E.g.: They are only obliged to deal with individuals who are registered with them.

They have artificially restricted, pre-set budgets that are cut so as not to cover all of people’s healthcare needs, the way the NHS otherwise would have done. This means people will be denied care, which the 2012 Health and Social Care Act laid the groundwork for by removing the state’s duty to provide comprehensive healthcare to the population.

On 6 December Labour called an Early Day Motion to debate the use of Accountable Care Organisations in the NHS. Accountable Care Organisations signal increased privatisation, and lack of accountability.

The government has been accused of keeping Accountable Care Organisations “secret”. And so this move aims to put them firmly in the spotlight. But if not stopped, they could signal the end of the NHS as we know it.
