Shooting The Breeze With Former Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt MP

“I opened five new medical schools and increased the number of doctors, nurses, and midwives. We trained by 25%, which is one of the biggest ever single increases, but I always felt we need to be much more strategic and you know, we, we need to recognise that it’s not just pandemics with an ageing population we’re going to need more capacity in our health provision, much more capacity and that means we’ve got to be very strategic and say, look, how many doctors are we going to need in 10 years time in 20 years time, because it takes 7 years to train one. So we need to get cracking”

Show notes

In this week’s Oven Ready HR episode, I grab a few minutes with one of the UKs most senior political figures, a former Culture Secretary, Health Secretary, and Foreign Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, unsuccessfully challenged, Boris Johnson for the leadership of the Conservative Party. Today, Hunt is the chairman of the powerful House of Commons Health and Social Care Select Committee, where he is at times challenged and disagrees with the government’s response to the COVID pandemic.

He’s also publicly disagreed with the proposed 1% pay increase for NHS staff, describing this as a miscalculation, as well as talking about COVID, we also discuss flexible working, toxic work cultures and the challenges faced by the NHS in attracting and retaining talent.

An exclusive chat with one of the UK’s most influential political figures.
