I have decided to join Dr. Colin Hutchinson, Professor Allyson Pollock, Professor Sue Richards and Dr. Graham Winyard in bringing a legal action against the Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt, and NHS England, to stop the introduction of accountable care organisations (ACOs) without full public consultation and parliamentary approval.
I am concerned that ACOs attack the fundamental principles of the NHS. As I said at the Royal Society of Medicine in August: [ Rsm.ac.uk Link ]
The NHS must be protected from those who want to privatize it. Legal action is expensive, so we are crowdfunding for it, and you can if you wish support us here: [ Crowdjustice.com Link ]
