Jeremy Hunt’s thoughtlessness and incompetence plumb new depths with his admission that he took his kids to A&E rather than wait for an appointment with their family doctor.
That just about says it all, doesn’t it. The Health Secretary himself has no confidence in the health system that he is supposed to be ‘promoting’. Thanks to the Health & Social Care Act 2012, Hunt is no longer required to actually ‘provide’ an NHS, but he could at least avoid doing what Ben Goldacre has called “without question the most stupid, insight-less and irresponsible thing I have ever seen from a health minister“.
The wonderful author of Bad Science and Bad Pharma, Goldacre continues “In saying this, Jeremy Hunt is encouraging overload to pretty much the most expensive place to deliver primary care.If this is part of a strategy I’d like to know what that is. It truly reads like an uninformed dinner party outburst.”
