David Cameron’s official spokesman said the Prime Minister had full confidence in Secretary of State for Health Andrew Lansley, following a conference at the Royal College of Nursing conference today. The spokesman said:
"Whenever you are trying to reform a bit of the public sector and make changes, you should expect some opposition to that. But we think it is important to reform the NHS.
"Although we are protecting the NHS budget, an ageing population and increasing costs of treatments mean that we need to reform the health service. We want to work with healthcare professionals as we do that".
