Statement from Dr Clive Peedell, co-leader of the National Health Action Party: “Voters must be getting pretty dizzy watching UKIP’s revolving NHS policy. The only thing that’s clear is a vote for UKIP is a vote for the end of the NHS as we know it. “Nigel Farage has made it public that he believes the NHS should be replaced with a European-style insurance-based system, based on a flawed argument that the NHS is unaffordable. Although Nigel Farage and UKIP may be flip-flopping over public policy pronouncements, there’s no doubt this idea will remain very much on the UKIP table. ”What’s more, Nigel Farage also said that he’d be more comfortable if the money he spent on health was invested through the market place rather than central government. In other words, UKIP policy still promotes NHS privatisation through the increased use of the private sector in the NHS. “UKIP simply can’t be trusted on the NHS, because they don’t believe in it and they think it’s unaffordable. “But our . ...
Press release - new NHA candidate standing in Oxford! A well-known Oxford GP is hoping to cause an upset in a Tory-Lib Dem election battle in Oxfordshire and emerge as the surprise winner in next year's general election. Dr Helen Salisbury, the latest election candidate being fielded by the National Health Action Party, will be challenging Tory Nicola Blackwood who has a wafer thin majority in Oxford West & Abingdon. Blackwood won the seat from the Lib Dems by just 176 votes in 2010. Dr Salisbury, a local GP who also teaches Oxford University medical students and is involved in research that helps patients understand their illnesses, will be able to count on the support of the academic and medical communities, as well as local celebrities such as the prize-winning novelist Mark Haddon, author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. And she believes she can reach out across the political spectrum to voters of all parties: "The NHS is valued and relied on by all my patients, whatever t ...
Dr Carl Walker, the chair of the European Community Psychology Association Task Force on Austerity and Mental health, and the National Health Action Party candidate for East Worthing and Shoreham, has hit out against Nick Clegg’s announcement on new waiting time targets for mental illnesses and plans to put treatment for mental health conditions on a level with physical health from 2015. “Putting aside the Coalition’s pathetic attempts to seize the agenda on the NHS after presiding over a catalogue of failures from rising waiting lists to bursting A&Es to GP practices facing meltdown, it’s hypocritical and misleading of Nick Clegg to try and claim the high ground over mental health when it’s the austerity policies of his coalition government that have ripped through the heart of mental health services, putting people’s lives at risk. The Coalition’s record speaks for itself: more than eight in 10 GPs now believe that their local mental health teams cannot cope with mental health caseloads, a ...

National Health Action Party "An NHS mental health trust that is cutting staff and services has spent £1.2m in one year on a private hospital where one of its senior consultants is a director. Dr Julian Beezhold, a consultant psychiatrist, serves as medical director at the private Milestones Hospital, near Norwich, as well as holding a senior role in planning changes to mental health services provided by the local NHS trust." "Dr Clive Peedell, leader of the National Health Action Party, said the conflict of interest should be investigated, adding that he believed private companies were reaping growing rewards from 'financially vulnerable trusts laid low by Government cuts'."

Rufus Hound totally read this blog post by me in Oct 2012 and thought, "If Phil Dore is doing it, it must be cool!".
We formed the National Health Action Party at the end of 2012 because we believed that a new political party was needed to defend the NHS and its values. Together with other health care professionals, we were seriously concerned about the impact of the Coalition Government’s Health & Social Care Bill . It was clear to us that it would trash the founding principles of the NHS: Comprehensive treatment, within available resources Universal access, based on need, not ability to pay Services delivered free at the point of delivery We warned that the Bill would destroy the NHS as an effective, efficient health system fair to all citizens and patients. We were also shocked at the Government’s brazen disregard for the public, introducing a Bill that was not in any manifesto, a bill which no one wanted and no one voted for. Now that the Health & Social Care Act has come into force, we have seen how it is transforming a cost-effective public system of health care into one that is more expensive, wasteful and u ...

National Health Action Party “If you don’t know the contents and consequences of the act then you’re not alone, and it’s not your fault. This act will probably change our lives more than any other piece of legislation created by the present government. It was opposed by the British Medical Association and by all but one of the medical royal colleges. Yet it was never advertised in a manifesto. As Michael Portillo told Andrew Neil on BBC One’s This Week in January 2011: “They did not believe they could win an election if they told you what they were going to do.”
