General Election 2019

Get the latest news, views and analysis on health and social care

With a General Election confirmed for 12 December 2019, we'll be informing the debate and exploring the big issues in health and care. 

Over the weeks ahead we'll launch a series of briefings outlining the evidence and highlighting the issues that should be priority for any new government. We'll also respond to key manifesto pledges and policy commitments made by the main political parties, reflecting on what they mean for health and care.
