The National Health Action Party was founded on the principles of public service and accountable democracy. We believe our public services should reflect our sense of national identity and social cohesion. They should be publicly owned, publicly delivered, and publicly accountable.
- Dr Alex Ashman, NHA co-leader 2016-2019
The National Health Action Party is a registered political party in the UK. We formed in May 2012 in response to the Health & Social Care Act which effectively ended the existence of the NHS as a nationalised, publicly-provided service. Despite focusing on health, we have a range of policies in areas affecting health, such as housing, education, transport, and women's equality. We call for a fairer economy and for political reform. We have put forward candidates at several national elections, including the 2014 European Elections and the 2015 and 2017 General Elections.
