Dr Mark Porter, Chairman of the British Medical Association conference has accused the government of consistently acting "against the best interests of patients", after Doctors approved a vote of no confidence in the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt.
The traditional thing to say is that we should focus on the politics and not personalities. We have policy from 2012 that we have no confidence in the then Secretary of State. I recall sitting out in the audience at that time and being told 'be careful about whom you have confidence in because the guy who follows may not be any better', and of course we've seen exactly that.This present Coalition Government goes out of its way to act against the interests of patients.
