The National Health is the fourth studio album by English indie rock band Maxïmo Park. It was released in the United Kingdom on 11 June 2012 by V2 Records. The album was the first by the band to feature a title track. The one-minute opening track, a ballad with piano and strings, has been noted by the band as a deliberate move to disorientate the listener (previous albums have all begun with a fast-paced track, like the title track, The National Health).

National Health is the first album recorded by the progressive rock and jazz fusion group National Health, one of the last representatives of the artistically prolific Canterbury scene. Although it was created during the rise of punk, the album is characterized by lengthy, elaborate and mostly instrumental compositions that combine prog and jazz elements. Phil Miller – electric guitar

Like most Canterbury productions,"National Health" is not the easiest album to get into. The jazz influence is here even more pronounced than in the Hatfields' two albums, and sometimes the listener may feel as if it is being a bit too sophisticated for its own good. Moreover, Parsons' voice may come across as an acquired taste - though, at least in my personal case, it grew on me with repeated listens.

At that point National Health was still a compositional collective; in fact, with the returning Campbell the emphasis in the early National Health repertoire remained on his unmistakably challenging (and influential) writing, where meters often shifted with each new bar and even the shortest composition was an epic of episodic intent. Stewart and Gowen were ready to record National Health's first album, but by 1976 the major record labels-initially tremendous supports-had begun to desert the progressive scene as the first whiffs of punk began to waft out of England. Even Virgin, a label founded on progressive rock acts including Hatfield, Mike Oldfield, Gongzilla and Henry Cowell, had no interest in what Stewart and Gowen had to offer. With gigs in short supply and no recording deal in sight, National Health continued as a sextet, with the two keyboardists, Miller, Campbell, Bruford and Parsons.

Purchasers of National Health's 1977 debut album might have looked at the band's lineup and figured that the group was Hatfield and the North with a new bassist, but the back-story was actually more complicated. The band was originally conceived by keyboardists Dave Stewart of the Hatfields and Alan Gowen of Gilgamesh as a merger of the two groups, which would have resulted in a rather massive nine-piece aggregation. Well, true enough, but Stewart did pick "rock" as his art form, and rock has always been mainly for teenagers and twentysomethings, so maybe he should've seen punk coming.
