To: Theresa May, the new Prime Minister
To start reconciliation with junior doctors and the whole NHS, Theresa May should appoint a new Health Secretary and shuffle Jeremy Hunt out of the cabinet.
Why is this important?
Jeremy Hunt is a divisive Health Secretary who has presided over a period of unprecedented unrest within the NHS. He has alienated doctors over their contract reforms, and threatens the future of the nursing profession through the removal of key financial supports for nursing students.
Theresa May, as the new Prime Minister, has an opportunity to build bridges with doctors, nurses, and the wider NHS. A new Health Secretary is the right starting point to restoring the NHS' trust in the government.
