What will the Liberal Democrats do about Health and Social care?

The Liberal Democrats are the only party with a clear and sustainably funded plan for the NHS and social care. We will build a better integrated health and care system that is prepared for the future, provides quality care and values and respects our health workforce. We will

  • Add 1p to the rate of income tax to raise £6bn additional revenue ring-fenced for spending on NHS and Social Care services, with a structured investment plan that ensures the most effective way of spending the money

  • Join Health and Social Care together under one budget and department

  • Value our NHS and Social care workforce, ending the public-sector pay freeze, guaranteeing staff who are EU nationals the right to stay in the UK and reinstating student nurse bursaries

  • Invest in equal care for mental health

  • Promote easier access to community health services such as GPs

  • Invest in helping people to stay healthy
