NHS ‘most important issue for public’

27th January 2015

The UK public believes that the National Health Service (NHS) is the most important issue that will be discussed in the run up to the general election in May.

This is according to the results of a poll from the BBC and Populus, which revealed that the health service came ahead of the economy, immigration, welfare and jobs in terms of importance.

Of the 4,209 adults surveyed, 74 percent ranked the NHS as being 'very important' to them, while 93 percent described it as 'very' or 'fairly' significant.

The findings of the poll, which was undertaken between January 14th and 18th 2015, have been published 101 days before the next general election – set to take place on May 7th.

Researchers asked the public to rank the issues that they felt should be covered by the news in order of importance.

All three major political parties will mention the NHS in their election campaigns, with Labour leader Ed Miliband recently pledging to add 36,000 more staff members and repeal privatisation laws.  ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801772323-ADNFCR
