He holds arguably the toughest job in Westminster as the NHS grapples with rising Covid cases, spiralling waiting lists and growing delays to cancer care
Sajid Javid has been appointed Health Secretary after shamed Matt Hancock stood down – but is the ex-chancellor the right man for the job?
Last week we asked you if Matt Hancock should step down as Health Secretary after his Covid rule-breaking kiss with Gina Coladangelo, and 92% said he should. 93% said they thought it had damaged his reputation.
And on Saturday, it was announced he had done just that. In a letter to the Prime Minister, he said the government “owe it to people who have sacrificed so much in this pandemic to be honest when we have let them down”.
Now, he holds arguably the toughest job in Westminster, as the NHS grapples with rising Covid cases, spiralling waiting lists and growing delays to cancer care.
Let us know below if you think the Prime Minister made the right call appointing Sajid Javid and what you think his priorities as Health Secretary should be.
