Which party do you trust with the NHS?
All of the main UK parties say they are committed to an NHS free at the point of delivery. Is this still a realistic option?
While the NHS is a devolved issue with different policies in different parts of the UK, wherever you live the health service faces similar challenges, as the cost of providing healthcare is being driven up by new medicines and technologies while patient expectations are increasing.
Some of the parties' plans for the health service include David Cameron's promise to "cut the deficit, not the NHS", while Gordon Brown has promised all cancer test results will be provided within a week by 2017, and Nick Clegg will guarantee that the NHS will pay for patients to go private if they do not get diagnosis and treatment on time.
Which of the political parties has the best policy for the NHS? What do you think health and social care provision will look like in the future? Are you a health service worker? What are your views on the parties' health plans?
