I very much welcome the publication of the ALLIANCE’s manifesto.  At a time when the population is ageing and demands on our health services rising, the NHS needs our support.  That is why the Scottish Conservatives have proposed that the Scottish Government backs a new NHS guarantee. We want to see a guarantee that spending on our health service should rise each year by whatever is highest: inflation, 2 per cent or by the extra funding coming from Westminster. Every penny passed on to our health services.  The next Scottish Parliament has the opportunity to take action to help improve the experiences of people in Scotland who are disabled, living with long term conditions or who are unpaid carers.  It is vital that all Scotland’s political parties work together to build a stronger NHS which responds to meet the health and social needs of individuals and families.
