The Scottish National Party (SNP) Manifesto

Here’s our analysis of The Scottish National Party's (SNP) commitments to work for people at risk of and living with Cardiovascular Disease.


  • We welcome the SNP’s pro-science commitments on fostering a culture of innovation. They want to establish a new Ministerial-led Innovation Forum that supports a network of innovation centres, including a £1 million Innovation Challenge Fund. They would also pilot Innovation and Investment hubs in key locations to make sure they get investment out of cutting edge science and technology.
  • We’re pleased that they would continue free social care for the elderly, although we’d like to see this extended to the under 65's. This commitment relates to Scotland only.
