Labour: Hunt should keep quiet on HNS

Criticism of the NHS by Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt is having a "very, very bad effect" on morale, shadow health minister Lord Hunt of Kings Heath said today:

This is having a very, very bad effect on morale within the NHS and Mr Hunt should desist. A period of silence from him would be very welcome.

– Lord Hunt
