Why I have fears around our new health secretary

Comment

In a way , one has to understand when a new health secretary first takes his/her position, the first part of the ‘script’ is trying to shift focus of attention from all things people have been dissatisfied, which ,in this case , are bloody everything in NHS . He is never going to be a strong Secretary of State of a very weak government. The wind is blowing fast and furious in Westminster and certainly within the Tory Party because of Brexit fiasco. Robocop is robotic and all things he said were actually predictable up to now and had nothing , nothing at all , to solve any crisis in NHS and general practice. So let’s watch this space and he can say whatever he says , we will respond and spin back . The more worrying political scenario to me , instead , is a possibility of a Prime Minister called Agent Hunt........ Our battles simply go on . Our job of overseeing and challenging policies(on NHS in our territory) of this government is never more essential , Jaimie.
