I don’t work in the NHS but like most people I value those that work in a difficult environment such as our health service.

Hunt is currently trying to steamroller the Conservatives’ plan to have a seven day NHS. Fine, he can throw mud, throw comments about the extra money, throw “it was in the manifesto that the people voted for”. But as usual he is missing the point. I voted Conservative, but I did not vote for an ill-conceived bad model such as stretching our short staffed over worked junior doctors into working seven days a week. These people are honorable hard working people that in every area put MPs to shame.
