The NHS is now transforming into 42 differently structured Integrated Care Systems based on American for-profit Medicare/Medicaid and HealthCare.Gov plans Managed Care/Accountable Care Organisations (MCOs, ACOs). This will lead to disintegration, removal and restriction of services, downskilling of the workforce with different rates of pay in the 42 ICSs, and denial of care for profits.
