Our Manifesto for Surgery
We are urging the new government to pledge support for the five key recommendations highlighted in our Manifesto for Surgery. We encourage you to email your newly elected MP and ask them to support the Manifesto for Surgery’s recommendations.
The NHS played a leading role in the 2019 general election campaign, with all parties setting out plans to improve access to services. Now that the election has concluded, we are calling on the new government to make good on those promises and:
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
How you can help
