Today I read about Prof. Stephen Hawkins who is backing a demand for a judicial review of yet more changes to the NHS proposed by Jeremy Hunt MP. I amĀ attempting to understand what the changes mean, especially what an Accountable Care Organisation will be and what might its function actually be. It was abundantly clear from the article that this worries many others too. I agree with providing one service merging health care and social care, but where one is based on provision being free for all at the point of need, and the other involves charges and fees then putting them together is bound to create problems and friction like this. I think both should be free at the point of need. I wish the group every success in the law courts but greatly fear the worst, I don’t trust the word of Jeremy Hunt.

Do you understand the proposed changes to health and social care?
