General election 2017: National Health Action policies

The National Health Action Party is not a one-issue party and has helped influence Labour Policy, says candidate Dr Louise Irvine.

It wants to end prescription charges in England, see annual NHS budget rises of 4%, and introduce free social care.

Dr Irvine said the party fights on "all determinants of heath" and that Labour is moving towards NHA policy.

She was speaking to Daily Politics presenter Jo Coburn and Labour's health spokesman Jon Ashworth, who said his party was also opposed to the Health and Social Care Act.
