Health

Our aim is to enable people to hold their healthcare provider to account and, if found wanting, have the freedom to take their business elsewhere. This cannot be done while the State is the monopoly provider who takes payment, commissions, runs and administers that monopoly. We do not envisage a mass sell-off of State assets, but a switch to independent not-for-profit and private entities competing openly.

There are a number of ways to effect the migration from State monopoly to an insurance-based system, and the available options are currently being reviewed by the Party.

The Libertarian Party believes strongly in honouring commitments, and this will extend to long-term care for the elderly and mental health services.

We will commission an investigation into existing PFI contracts to ensure that they are legal and were entered into with due diligence and in the interests of the taxpayer.
