What are we seeking and why?
We are seeking a judicial review to stop Secretary of State for Health Jeremy Hunt and NHS England from introducing new commercial, non-NHS bodies to run health and social services without proper public consultation and without full Parliamentary scrutiny.
These non-NHS bodies would be called “Accountable Care Organisations” (“ACOs). They would be governed by company and contract law and can be given “full responsibility” for NHS and adult social services……. see more here

This case affects us all
The NHS must continue to provide comprehensive healthcare to everyone who needs it
The NHS must remain as a public service that provides the full range of health care to everyone who needs it, free at the point of use.
This is under threat.
Working with public law firm Leigh Day, 999 Call for the NHS intends to bring a judicial review of plans for new local NHS and Social Care organisations to operate what they call “fixed, pre-set population budgets”.
These budgets are supposed to cover an area’s population but they will be insufficient to meet the public need. These finance restrictions will force our NHS to behave like an insurance company.
This will decisively end the NHS as a comprehensive service for everyone who needs health care More Here
