According to article today in the New York Times, England Plans to Decentralize its Health Care System. The details of the plan are not final. However, the goal of the plan is to shift control of England’s $160 billion annual health budget from a centralized government agency to doctors at the local level. 

According to Sarah Lyall, under the plan, $100 billion to $125 billion a year would be meted out to general practitioners, who would use the money to buy services from hospitals and other health care providers.
