The NHS already outsources many services, eg radiology to India and hundreds of other services.
If the yanks can provide value for money with the contractual quality required, why not? It's not Brexit related.

Again, developing a new nuclear missile defense sytem is ridiculous when the UK can buy it off the Ameicans. An alternative would be join up with the French, but they currently seem to have their own nuclear issues, albeit commercial, not defence.
It is unlikely "the yanks can provide value for money with the contractual quality required" when they already run the world's most expensive health system; probably good reasons NHS already outsources to India, not the US.

The problem with "buy it off the Americans" is they will retain control over when and how it can be used.
All that ignores the question of "is a new nuclear missile defense system" really needed and is that the best use of the UK budget?
The famous Brexit "UK sovereignty" seems to have flown out of the window when such key and expensive decisions are made without any Parliament or pubic discussion and involvement.
