The Green Party Manifesto

Here’s our analysis of The Green Party's commitments to work for people at risk of and living with Cardiovascular Disease. 

  • We’re pleased to see a commitment from the Green Party to ensure that basic research is adequately funded, including a gradual increase in spend on scientific research from 0.5% to 1% of GDP over the next 10 years. 
  • Prevention -  The Green Party have committed to strengthening controls on advertising to children. This is positive, although does not explicitly sign them up to our call for an end to junk food marketing aimed at children. 
  • It’s welcome to see a pledge to introduce mandatory Personal, social and health education (PHSE) classes onto the school curriculum, which would include instruction in first aid (and CPR).
