That's relatively easy to do:
Make a law that mandates nationalisation. The big question is the price, of course. Another problem may be international treaties that prohibit such, such as TTIP. But hey, where's a will there's a way, just cancel whichever international treaty is in your way.

See for instance Venezuela which nationalized many major industries under Chavez, case in point the nationalisation of and payment for Lafarge's plants.
Well price is certainly one thing but I doubt the Brexiteers would be happy to see any EU savings spent on re nationalisation versus improving the NHS!

Venezuela is still facing some twenty court cases against forced nationalisation

Chavez/Venezuela paid billions to settle some cases like Holcim and ExxonMobil.
