Partnerships could introduce ‘attractive features’ of locum model, says review


Joe McGilligan 3:58 ..‘The review will highlight the inadequacy of the model for the modern NHS which is looking for ACO or ICS solutions.‘ It strikes me how frequently people assert the current partnership model ‘isn’t fit for the modern NHS’ like it’s some kind of self obvious fact without any need to explain why. I don’t agree. ACOs are nothing more than a convenient mechanism for the government to quietly privatise health care and get the cost off government books. We’ll all still need to pay for our heaajthcare wether it’s funded through taxation or directly as individuals. it’ll just end up more expensive on a societal level - private health care always is. Look at the USA, birth place of the ACO.
