Health and care will be ‘right at the centre’ of the Liberal Democrat manifesto when it launches today. Party leader Sir Ed Davey has said ‘the NHS and care needs a significant boost’ because it is ‘in a real crisis at the moment.’ He told the Sunday Morning With Trevor Phillips programme: ‘On the care policy – free personal care and making sure we have got more care workers by paying them properly – we have said we will reverse the Conservatives tax cut for big banks and that would raise £4.3 billion.’ The programme heard that among Liberal Democrat plans if they formed a government were providing 1,000 extra hospital beds which are fully staffed at an upfront cost of £280 million plus £400 million each year, which is on top of 8,000 new general practitioners and an unspecified amount to be spent on repairing hospitals.
