How has this happened?

The NHS is beginning to be dismantled for a number of reasons. It is part of a wider government agenda that is being aggressively and speedily pursued to shrink the welfare state as a whole. The public has also been actively mislead or left uninformed about what the HSC Act would mean (see Myths about the ‘reformed’ NHS and Media silence).

But it is also happening because of the vested interests at stake in privatizing the NHS, and the strong links that exist between private healthcare companies/health insurance companies, lobbying firms and Members of Parliament (primarily but by no means exclusively, Conservative MPs).
