Do the SNP support the privatisation of the NHS?
The SNP believe that the NHS is our most important public resource and we will do everything we can to ensure that it is properly funded and protected as a public service. We will always keep Scotland’s NHS safe in public hands.
Over the last five years the SNP government has protected Scotland’s health budget - and has increased spending. By the end of the next parliament we will increase the NHS revenue budget by £500 million more than inflation by the end of this parliament, which means that it will increase by almost £2 billion in total.
