FAQ's - Where do You stand on the NHS?

I frankly cannot understand how any government, indeed anyone who cares about our society, could push for anything less than a national, universal and well funded, accountable health system.

I've followed the debate on changes to how healthcare should be delivered, since I became interested in politics. I've always been worried that the kind of stories we hear about from countries with mixed models, or insurance systems linked to employers could become a reality here if we don't stick to our principles on a publicly owned and accessible NHS.

I have a young family and thanks to the NHS, I know I can take my children to my GP or hospital and have any issue dealt with quickly, professionally and without having to worry about how much it will cost.
