Key policies

  • Abolish national pay bargaining in the NHS. Devolve pay negotiation and hiring powers to Trusts, and make patient outcomes the only goal. Increase private provision of care where appropriate.
  • Allow mutual recognition of devices and pharmaceuticals that have been approved for use in any other OECD country, to circumvent the lengthy approvals process, subject to informed consent by the patient.
  • Expand the number of doctors to reduce costs and the apparent understaffing of the NHS through increased medical school places and fast-tracked visa approvals for foreign doctors wishing to work in Britain.
  • Aim towards a Singaporean-style system of full private provision of healthcare paid for with a combination of private health savings accounts and catastrophic health insurance, with government covering costs for those who cannot pay for themselves.
