What policies should we propose to support a healthy population?

National Health Service

In order to support every citizen's basic right to medical care and health services, we will maintain and enhance the NHS, keeping it as a free service available to anyone in the UK.

In order to deliver a high quality of care in the NHS, funding and investment in the system must be increased.

The NHS will not deny care to anyone for any reason, regardless of legal status, economic status, or nationality (for further details, see doitreatthisimmigrant.com).

I've tried to keep the policies themselves short and to the point. I also tried out the policy-as-user-story idea, which works well in that form I think.

We have a "free at the point of delivery" National Health Service and for good reason - a healthy population is a productive population, and that reaps benefits for all. That does not however extend to an area of our health that influences our ability to eat and drink and that when not maintained adequately can lead to cancer. Care of the mouth and teeth should be brought fully under the National Health Service and free at the point of delivery, sweeping away the often prohibitive costs for the poorest in society and ensuring that our world class health care system continues to beat it's international counterparts in keeping the nation in good health.

Agree that healthcare should never be denied for any reason whatsoever - as long as the NHS retains ability to cross-charge to other nations after-the-fact. There may not be a health tourism issue (despite media reports) but maintaining the ability to cross-charge between health-services is a sensible way of effectively managing the finances of the NHS - whose resources are not infinite. 👍
