Understanding The NHS Position – FP’s View in Bite Size 3
Part 3: Declaring Plans in Manifestos
- Labour are already proclaiming a “big offer” on the NHS with
“pledges” on increased funding and staffing.
A “care charter” is being floated to raise standards and drive
a tougher inspection regime.
- None of this has been costed. Possibility of an NHS protected
tax increase via NI. “Brown bonanza #2”.
- The CEO, Simon Stevens, is calling for “creative solutions”.
Others have suggested “reimagining healthcare”.
- NHS cannot be “saved” by efficiencies alone. It needs
a credible plan for its future sustainability
