    By putting 50% extra money in and joining social care into their remit

    Well the health systems we compare it to have 30-40% more spent on it and obviously the money for social care currently can be re routed to the NHS.

    Seems fair enough to me, and before anyone says how will you pay for it frankly I don't care. Borrow it, cut stuff elsewhere, raise tax. Whatever it is, it is worth it.

    I wouldn't. I'd privatise it.

    Then people could buy insurance policies to cover themselves for illness.

    Some of us won't get insurance. Or if we did, it would be stupidly expensive. And what happens if you can't afford it?

    Increase spending, have better distribution of resources, and increase the promotion of exercise somehow.
    Increase spending how? Raising tax or cutting funds elsewhere?

    In general, increasing tax, although I believe the government should significantly increase spending in Research and Development in all areas (not just Health) and thus profit from the results.
    'Investing' in research is risky though (within and outside health). Much investment in say a drug can all go to 'waste' if it's proved later not to work in future trials. And it takes time, drugs rake 20 years.

    Increase Tax - maybe - won't really please the tories though.
