With the election looming the parties have decided to take on the subject of the NHS and GP shortages to get all our attentions. These have been hot topics for the media and the country the last year. For parties to use this as a bribe is something we must all be skeptical of. But, has it swayed your vote? And, do you believe a certain party could make a difference?

Labour has pledged £2.5bn to pay for 8,000 more GPs, guaranteeing appointments within 48 hours. Mr Burnham said the last Labour government had introduced an extended-hours scheme which, in 2009, funded 77% of surgeries to open on evenings and weekends.

Whereas Labour’s Mr Hunt said figures were wrong, because they did not take into account the Prime Minister’s Challenge Fund, which covers 1,100 practices and helps 7.5 million patients see a GP in the evenings and at weekends. “We are extending this scheme to cover over 1,400 additional practices, helping 10 million extra people by this time next year,” he said, adding that a Conservative government would deliver “a truly seven-day NHS”.

Yet, the Lib Dems also pointed to a £50m GP Access Fund, which they say helped 1,147 practices to extend their hours last year. Party election spokesman Lord Scriven said: “The Liberal Democrats are the only party prepared to commit to spending the £8bn extra the NHS says it needs to survive.”

But who is really interested in the NHS and GP’s? Is politics even the answer? What do you think?
