Our Manifesto for Surgery
We have published our Manifesto for Surgery for the 2019 General Election and written to the party leaders, urging them to pledge support for our five key recommendations.
We encourage you to email your parliamentary candidates and ask them to support our Manifesto.
We call on the next government, regardless of which political party or parties form it, to:
1. Develop a five-year plan to tackle lengthening waits for operations
2. Abolish the NHS pensions ‘tax trap’
3. Protect patients, staff and standards in future Brexit negotiations
4. Support the recommendations of the Commission on the Future of Surgery
5. Improve the oral health of children and older people
