Increase National Insurance Contributions

It is crystal clear the NHS & Social Care system is underfunded. Increasing NI contributions would provide much needed funding. If 4% was sufficient it could be introduced at the rate of 1% each year for 4-years, that way the NHS would be able to properly plan how to allocate the additional funds without being overwhelmed and people would not miss such a small increase in NI from the pay packet each year. Considering how much money people voluntarily gave Captain Tom for the NHS, it is hard to imagine anyone grudging paying a little bit more for such a fantastic service.

Why the contribution is important

To provide a 'gold standard' health and social care system that benefits every single person in the country. As the number of older people increases we will need a fully funded, modern and efficient social care system with plenty of properly rewarded Care Workers.

    I definitely agree that National Insurance contributions should be increased slightly, in order that the NHS may emerge better than ever. We've all seen how we cannot let the NHS deteriorate any more and we all need to stop taking our wonderful NHS for granted and get behind them in every way we can. Where would we be during this crisis without our NHS and all the fantastic hard working people within it?
