Dr Louise Irvine: why doctors formed a political party to save the NHS

A group of health professionals founded the National Health Action Party this week to fight reforms they believe are putting the NHS at risk. Dr Louise Irvine tells GPonline.com why this was the right thing to do.

Dr Irvine is among the founders of the National Health Action Party, which plans to field candidates in up to 50 general election constituencies in England including those held by high-profile MPs including health secretary Jeremy Hunt and prime minister David Cameron.

The party also plans to contest a selection of council seats.
