Dr Alice Rickford: ‘How will the parties priorities health in the current economic crisis?’

The Tories seem to be keen on opening up the playing field to private providers and ready to abolish practice boundaries.

Labour has stated its preference for NHS providers but anecdotally there have been reports of a preference for private providers, especially in London.

Unfortunately I'm not aware of any Lib Dem primary care policy.

I would like to know how, in the current economic crisis, the parties plan to prioritise health. I would like to feel confident that the party I vote for will be transparent about its approach to prioritising the healthcare budget. And which, if any, of the parties has the honesty to address health inequalities?
