Election 2015 smaller parties: National Health Action (NHA)

The National Health Action Party (NHA) is standing 13 candidates in the general election who oppose privatisation of the NHS.

Candidate Dr Louise Irvine - who is fighting to win the constituency of South West Surrey from Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt - said it would be "irresponsible" not to repeal the coalition's Heath and and Social Care Act, and claimed there was too much bureaucracy in the health service.

She told Andrew Neil on the Daily Politics that it would save money to remove the market in the NHS, and that some private health care was "not open to the same scrutiny and accountability that the NHS is".

This is one of a series of interviews with 22 smaller parties contesting seats at the 2015 general election
