Election 2015: National Heath Action on NHS policies
The National Health Action Party - set up in response to the government's NHS reforms in England - has launched its election campaign.
It is fielding candidates in 13 seats, including those of the prime minister and the health secretary, and is proposing a 1p increase in income tax to raise £4.5bn per year.
Co-leader Clive Peedell told Jo Coburn on the Daily Politics that "health care spending actually promotes economic growth" by keeping people healthy and redistributing wealth.
The doctor and cancer specialist explained the party was planning to abolish the market system in the NHS, and to divert money from accountants and lawyers to frontline patient care.
