Labour has accused Jeremy Hunt of having a “record of failure” as he becomes the longest-serving Health Secretary.After his 1,342 days in the role, he must also be the most reviled of the six Labour and six Tory ministers in the job since its creation in 1978, the Sunday People reports.
In the four years he has sat in the hot seat at Richmond House, it is claimed Hunt has managed to upset just about every section of the health profession as well as the public who use the service.
Currently in the midst of a brutal battle with junior doctors over working hours, Hunt is accused by Labour of having a record of failure.
They say he has presided over a real cut in NHS spending soaring waiting lists, a crisis in nursing numbers and failed to protect whistle- blowing staff.
