NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE
The National Front would provide an entirely free National Health Service and this would include the abolition of prescription charges. When people fall ill they are likely to be losing money in any case and we can see no justification in prescription charges. However, checks on doctors’ prescriptions would be made to make sure the Health Service is not wasting money.
Whilst the National Front expects all parts of the NHS to use money efficiently and carefully, a National Front government would make available sufficient funds to eliminate all waiting lists for medically needed operations and treatments. This will take priority over other items of expenditure.
The National Front believes that the NHS should be made available to all foreign visitors who fall ill during their stay, however this system is being abused by people who arrive in this country fully aware of an existing health condition – this would be stopped.
