I have just one quibble with the article excerpted below:

Jeremy Hunt must be delighted that NHS morale is in the doldrums. That is exactly where he wants it to be.

Morale among civil servants working at the Department of Health has hit “rock bottom”, with only 24% saying they would recommend the department as a great place to work, down from 44% a year ago.

Only 41% felt confident to tell others where they work, down from 56% in 2016. And only 25% felt inspired by the work they do, compared to 40% last year.

The damning findings, first revealed by the Politics Home website, represent a severe embarrassment for Jeremy Hunt, whose management of the NHS has seen a succession of strikes by doctors and nurses, battles with health unions, and who is also widely regarded as one of the worst to hold the position of Health Secretary for many years.
