Jeremy Hunt delivers hard-hitting speech on NHS care

30th November 2012

Health secretary Jeremy Hunt has claimed that patients experience “coldness, resentment, indifference” and “even contempt” in some hospitals.

Speaking to an audience of health professionals at The King’s Fund, he said that health service managers were so preoccupied with spread sheets that they had become “blind” to the fact that patients were not being treated with dignity or respect. In a strongly-worded speech, he warned that poor care was the biggest problem of all facing the NHS and that senior managers would lose their jobs if care was not good enough.
