The United Kingdom's socialized health care system may soon be changing.
The British government has proposed a plan in hopes of cutting costs. The plan will shift its health system from a centralized bureaucracy to doctors at the local level.
Government officials hope the move will save billions of pounds.
However, critics say the plan will only lead to the rationing and restriction of care that patients need.
The London Daily Telegraph reported the move could also force many nursing homes to close down and cause thousands of job losses.
The newspaper's investigation also revealed restrictions in the plan that would severely restrict services to the sick and injured.
