This Could have very far-reaching consequences for anyone with a Disability or ongoing Health issue; More so if you cannot afford (And most cannot)
expensive private Health Insurance.

Jeremy Hunt is in the middle of an enormous stealth-reorganization of the NHS into ACOs (accountable care organisations), modelled along the lines of the hugely inefficient US healthcare system. According to healthcare experts:

Like Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships, the introduction of Accountable Care Organisations is being done in replacement of a single, English NHS, with the loss of all national risk pooling and finance pooling.
ACOs are designed to not automatically serve everyone in a given area, the way the NHS would have done. E.g.: They are only obliged to deal with individuals who are registered with them.
They have artificially restricted, pre-set budgets that are cut so as not to cover all of people’s healthcare needs, the way the NHS otherwise would have done. This means people will be denied care, which the 2012 Health and Social Care Act laid the groundwork for by removing the state’s duty to provide comprehensive healthcare to the population.
ACOs are set up so that all the services can be outsourced to a single private company, or to a shell company which can include all sorts of players, from a GP consortium to a private healthcare multinational, which can outsource, even to an NHS body.
Even to the extent, they are in the hands of public bodies, ACOs are designed to end the basic NHS principles of comprehensive healthcare for all. These founding NHS principles recently found extraordinary support among the population, around the 90% mark. No government has ever had a mandate to dismantle our access to healthcare in this way, let alone in blatant avoidance of parliamentary scrutiny.
The nature and consequences of the reorganization are so damaging that leading health experts are going to court to try to stop it, but the issues with ACOs will be a mystery to a majority of the public.
