We’re committed to creating a truly 7-day a week NHS.

Our National Health Service should be there for you and your family, wherever and whenever you need it.

By sticking to our plan to build a strong economy and deal with the deficit, we can invest more in the NHS and become the first country in the world to deliver a 7-day a week service.

We’ve already committed to investing an extra £2 billion this year, and will increase the NHS budget by an extra £8 billion annually by the end of the next Parliament – so our hospitals get the funding they need to provide a world-class health services at the weekend.

We all rely on the NHS and few things embody the spirit of One Nation more than our health service.

Our commitment to a 7-day a week service is about delivering the best care in the world for everyone in our country, and about protecting the values of the NHS: to ensure that free healthcare is always there wherever and whenever you need it.

We’re committed to tackling extremism – and defeating it.

As the party of one nation, we’ll govern as one nation – and bring our country together by actively promoting British values, like democracy, the rule of law and equal rights.

These values are what define us as a society and to belong here is to embrace them.

We’ll confront extremism with new powers that are expected to include:

  • Banning Orders for extremist organisations that incite hatred and Extremism Disruption Orders to restrict people who seek to radicalise the young and vulnerable
  • Powers to close premises where extremists seek to influence others
  • Strengthening the powers of the Charity Commission to root out charities who misappropriate funds towards extremism and terrorism
  • Further immigration restrictions on extremists
  • A strengthened role for Ofcom to take action against channels which broadcast extremist content

We’ll also review the application of Sharia Law in this country and do more than ever before to help isolated communities, uniting the country behind our British, pluralistic values.

Those values are superior to anything the extremists offer. We will bring communities together to defeat extremism in all its forms and create a better future for our whole country.

Employment is at an all-time high.

New figures from the Office for National Statistics show that there are over 2 million more people in work since 2010. That’s over 2 million people with the security of a wage to provide for themselves and their families. (Source: ONS, 13/05/15)

These figures also show:

  1. Unemployment down by almost 700,000 since 2010 – its lowest level for seven years
  2. The number of young people without a job fell by 140,000 over the last year – with more opportunities for young people to get on in life
  3. 80% of jobs created in the last year have been full-time – showing that the majority of new jobs are secure and long-term
  4. Over two-thirds of new employment over the last year has been outside London and the South East – showing that this is recovery for the whole country

Our plan is working and over the next five years we’re committed to building a Britain of full employment, where everyone who wants a job can get one.

That’s why we’ll keep the plan going to help create even more jobs and secure a brighter future for you, your family and our country.
