Labour to increase NHS spending and scrap 2012 Health Bill Watch
The increased spending will be paid for by a clampdown on tax avoidance, a tax on the tobacco industry and a Mansion Tax on properties worth over £2bn.
According to the British Heart Foundation:
“The tobacco industry must pay for their profiteering and the terrible burden these lethal products place on people’s heart health. The BHF welcomes Labour’s commitment to making this happen and holding manufacturers to account.
I'm pretty sure they are only repealing one section of the act (the profit bit), they are not going to remove any of the existing private sector influence they inherit. That amounts to a 10% increase (roughly) over the Tory ring fence.
My personal view is that they should streamline the NHS by reducing the services they offer, especially outpatient services which can be done cheaply by a fully private hospital. The savings can be reinvested.
