"The Socialist Health Association was founded in 1930 to campaign for a National Health Service. Our goal is to protect and improve the NHS and to campaign on issues of health and equality. This is a socialist organisation. We are affiliated to and actively support the Labour Party, as we have done since we were established in 1930. We mean by socialism a concern for the common ownership of social capital, for the relief of poverty, for equity, and a belief that money or influence should not buy better treatment for human suffering. We affiliate to the Labour Party because it is the only political organisation which is prepared to entertain this agenda and has any prospect of delivering it. For the reasons eloquently described in the NHS National Plan we do not believe that charging has any part to play in the funding of the health service, and we actively campaign to remove the charges which remain. We advocate an extension of free democratic debate within the Labour Party and an extension of democratic accountability within the health service. We are committed to a public health approach. We believe that medical treatment or other therapeutic approach will not on its own achieve the advances in health which are possible and desirable. We are concerned to address the problems of the poorest and most disadvantaged members of our society and in the wider world."
