I agree with you about a reformed NHS. I think my party does place too much emphasis on promoting private healthcare. But if people were required to pay for their treatment (in exchange for which, the government could cut £50 billion worth of taxes) that would cut out a lot of bureaucracy and centralise the system around the patient. Those would be extremely worthwhile 'tweaks'.
