NHS Continued investment in the NHS, better management, increasing the number of medical staff and cutting waste. The NHS must remain a publicly-owned, comprehensive service that is free at the point of use. There should be no privatisation of the NHS; where existing private initiatives have failed to deliver they will be returned to public ownership. Support investment in medical research and development; stop the taxpayer being ripped off by pharmaceutical companies. Abolish all politically imposed hospital targets that distort clinical priorities. Re-open the nursing and midwifery professions to recruitment without the degree requirement, alongside a new nursing qualification in social care. Introduce 24-hour GP surgeries to relieve the strain in A&E departments. Have a national debate on our NHS, involving the public alongside MPs, doctors and experts. Discuss ring-fencing the NHS budget and the tax revenues that pay for it. Welfare benefits Support those who have paid into the system with accelerated payment processes (five-week maximum), and continue to root out fraud. Undertake a 12-month review of the system and bring in reforms within two years. Review the position of women unexpectedly short-changed by recent rises in the state pension age. Extend the use of dormant funds to support civil society. Housing Simplify the planning and development processes to encourage small and medium sized developers, accelerating the pace of development to increase housing supply. Change the funding model to make it easier for councils to borrow from central government to build council houses.
