Kieran McCarthy said: “We will introduce free eye and dental checks because they will greatly increase protection against illness for local people.
“They will ensure that we can prevent ill health at its earliest stages and will mean that specialists can pick up on cancer and glaucoma at the earliest opportunity.
“Early intervention will benefit the individual and the health service alike. It gives the person involved the quickest treatment and will also ensure that the health service can tackle problems more easily and effectively, because they have been noticed quickly.
“It is vitally important the we can tackle these types of problems as quickly as possible, and free check ups for everyone will remove any of the barriers which previously existed.
“These free health checks will ensure that everyone receives a higher standard of care, because financial worries will not put them off making an appointment for a check-up.
“Alliance will make real improvements which will enhance people’s everyday lives and that is why everyone should look to the only alternative to the tribal parties.”
