Jeremy Hunt will be remembered for the worst collapse in patient standards of any Health Secretary in the history of the NHS – Madders

Justin Madders MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister, responding to Jeremy Hunt’s move from Health Secretary to Foreign Secretary, said:

“Jeremy Hunt has overseen the worst collapse in patient standards of any Health Secretary in the history of the NHS.

“His time in charge will be remembered for soaring waiting lists, huge staffing shortages, and patients left with treatments rationed and operations cancelled in record numbers.

“It is an astonishing measure of the meltdown at the heart of the Tory Government that this catalogue of failure is rewarded with promotion rather than the sack. Theresa May should call an end to this shambolic farce. Britain needs a functioning Government, not this revolving door of failure.”
