Jeremy Hunt is a health secretary under pressure. In this exclusive interview with The BMJâ€™s editor in chief Fiona Godlee, the man who could soon become England's longest serving health secretary insists he has more to give.
The steady hand brought in to steer the NHS away from the front pages has been shaking in recent months, but the grip seems to be intact. As he greets The BMJ in his Whitehall office, Jeremy Hunt does not betray the signs of a man buckling under the pressure despite a tumultuous few months that have left many NHS staff feeling downtrodden, battered, and
bruisedâ€”and that have brought calls for his resignation after he was rebuked for misrepresenting data published in The BMJ to support the case for seven day working in the NHS.
