Meeting with Secretary of State for Health

I held a useful meeting with the Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, today. In particular, we discussed the workload on GPs and the move towards a seven-day NHS. 

More GPs are being trained and it is planned to recruit 5,000 more by 2020.  More funding is also being provided for the NHS. An extra £10 billion a year will be provided by 2020. This is a significant increase.
