A leading doctor from East Yorkshire wants the health service to become completely independent from political interference and run like the Bank of England.
Dr Zoe Norris, from Hull, made the comments on the day the former head of the NHS in England warned of large deficits in the health service that are being ignored by politicians.
Sir David Nicholson, who retired last year, wants more commitments from all political parties to extra funding, but Dr Norris says health shouldn't be a political issue.
The mother of Sam Brown is outraged after being asked to give money to the Conservative Party - by David Cameron - while she's fighting to get a life changing drug for her son.
Sam, 6, has the rare condition Morquio Syndrome which means his skeleton does not grow properly, but his internal organs do.
His mum Katy is still waiting to find out if NHS England will fund the drug he needs and has appealed to Mr Cameron.
Imagine her surprise when she got an appeal from the Tory leader in a campaign email asking her for money to help future generations.
Mr Cameron says he'll investigate as Sarah Clark reports:
Darren Gough is supporting a cancer hospital by making "Time For Tea" and is asking others to join him for a cuppa.
The former England cricketer and Yorkshire County Cricket Club captain is encouraging people to come together for a brew and cake to help raise funds for Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.
Last year more than 150 tea parties were organised across the region, raising £36,000 for the charity which works to improve the treatment and care for people living with cancer.
This year participants are also being urged to make a donation and share selfies with their favourite tea mug on Twitter and nominate friends to do the same.
Downton Abbey's Allen Leech and fellow cricketer Michael Vaughan are also supporting the campaign alongside Olympic taekwondo medallist Sarah Stevenson, who supported the campaign last year after losing both her parents to cancer.

As a Yorkshire man myself, I'd urge anyone who enjoys a cuppa and cake to pop the kettle on this May and brew up vital funds for this local cause.
