Jeremy Hunt has questions to answer


Commenting on reports that the language in a letter from Professor Sir Bruce Keogh was influenced by the Department of Health, Liberal Democrat Health Spokesperson Norman Lamb said:  

"This revelation raises serious concerns about potential political interference with the independent Medical Director of NHS England. Jeremy Hunt must explain exactly who was involved in toughening up of language in this letter. My fear is that this will damage trust between the Government and junior doctors still further. 

"We need a cross party commission to look at how we secure the long term future of the NHS and social care , but Jeremy Hunt must now immediately get back around the negotiating table and resolve this dispute with junior doctors that are such an integral part of our NHS"
