We believe that a strong economy supports a strong health service. A dynamic and successful Scottish economy means more money for public services. Ensuring parity of opportunity for those within, and joining, the labour market means a fairer, healthier and more driven society.
We support the commitment of the Scottish Government in pushing for a Living Wage.
Protecting Scotland from potentially unfavourable international trade deals such as proposed trade links with the US which may open up healthcare to international competition laws should be a focus of a future independent Scotland.
