The Institute for Government is delighted to welcome Jeremy Hunt MP, Chair of the Health and Social Care Committee.
With the NHS facing record waiting lists and workforce problems in the wake of the pandemic, and as the government’s plans to fund social care come under intense scrutiny, the former – and Britain’s longest-serving – health secretary will be in conversation with Bronwen Maddox, the Director of the Institute for Government.
He will discuss his new book Zero: Eliminating Preventable Harm and Tragedy in the NHS, which he says sets out “how the NHS can reduce the number of avoidable deaths to zero and in the process save money, reduce backlogs and improve working conditions.”
The Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP has been the member of parliament for South West Surrey since May 2005. He has served as Culture Secretary, Health Secretary and Foreign Secretary, and has chaired the Commons Select Committee Health and Social Care since January 2020.
