New mental health legislation is welcome but will be a wasted opportunity if we do not now end the human rights scandal of 2,000 people with autism or learning disabilities incarcerated for no crime - my exchange with @sajidjavid

One of the bravest interviews I have read by a politician, something that will resonate with thousands of families touched by the horror of suicide. Thank you ⁦⁦@sajidjavid⁩

On 24/07 @AJRichardsonMP & I will be taking part in the @CR_UK Race for Life @ Stoke Park. We’re hoping to raise further funds for the Cancer & Surgical Innovation Centre @RoyalSurrey. If you can support us with a donation, our @JustGiving page is here:https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Jeremy-Hunt1

If you get the call from the NHS, go for your smear test - it could save your life #cervicalcancerscreeningawarenessweek @JoTrust

Interesting conversation with the NFU’s Minette Batters about how food strategy has to be an essential part of progress towards net zero if want to reduce emissions caused by transporting food around the world #backbritishfarming🇬🇧

Farnham’s @UniCreativeArts is a stunning success story with applicants up by an extraordinary 10x in recent years. Here with dynamic Vice Chancellor Bashir Makhoul #bouncebackswsurrey

Great to meet with David Uffindell and Farnham clergy to talk about community building and what more we can do to make Ukrainians feel welcome - with over 100 families now settled!

Thank you Tim Oliver and @SurreyCouncil for a productive meeting of the Farnham Project Board. All go for a public consultation on major improvements to the town centre this summer!

Thank you Farnham heads for an excellent discussion this morning on improving education for the 50% of school leavers who do not go to university

Important insights into workforce pressures on the frontline at a fascinating Select Committee visit to @NorthBristolNHS in Bristol. Thank you @MariaKaneNHS and her team for a useful roundtable and well done on a brilliantly run ED department!

For my next Bounceback video I was in the wonderful village of Bramley, one of the only villages in Surrey where you can still get household electrical items mended alongside many other attractions! #BouncebackSWSurrey

Great to meet many old friends at #nhsconfedexpo this morning with my stand selling Zero next door to the friendly @WardHadaway team. Pleased to say we sold out!

The evidence is stark: continuity of care by GPs saves lives. So when will the government act? My question to @sajidjavid

Sir Robert Francis outlined to @CommonsHealth what patients want from their GPs - access and continuity of care are top of the list

We know that workforce pressures are effecting GPs, but today @CommonsHealth heard how nurses working in primary care feel 'invisible' and 'unsafe'

I don't agree with everything in this but thank you @amateuradam for being fair and balanced. When two people on different sides of the argument consider what the other says as thoughtfully as you have it can only be good for the NHS

The sewage overspills into the River Wey are totally unacceptable- my intervention in the House of Commons this afternoon

The decision to allow drilling at Dunsfold is bitterly disappointing and wrong both economically and environmentally - my letter to @michaelgove

High quality leadership in the NHS is not possible when the NHS has more national targets than any other healthcare system in the world - my question to @sajidjavid in the House of Commons today

I am delighted that the review of maternity incidents at NUH will now be led by @donnaockenden.I recently met Sarah and Gary Andrews who lost their daughter Wynter there & sent me this written by an 8 year old cousin to comfort the family & support their charity @WyntersWish

Continuity of care - patients seeing their own family doctor - is safer for patients and less stressful for doctors. So will NHS England bring back individual patient lists?

Zero avoidable deaths – an aspiration, not a target. Find out more about our seminar with @Jeremy_Hunt yesterday where he talked about his time as secretary of state and his passion for #patientsafety >> https://www.hsib.org.uk/news-and-events/zero-avoidable-deaths-an-aspiration-not-a-target/ #NHS

There is far less capacity to treat long covid than we need according to the RCN:

So @CommonsHealth asked @sajidjavid and NHS England boss @AmandaPritchard what they were doing about it

Big thanks @Jeremy_Hunt whose new book #Zero (out now via @_SwiftPress) is well worth a read if you care about the #NHS. Something heartening about an ex-minister looking back at his old dpt and trying to work out where he went wrong. #buyapaper #buyabook

The Conservative Party must now decide if it wishes to change its leader. Because of the situation in Ukraine this was not a debate I wanted to have now but under our rules we must do that.

Thank you @RogerAEF for a very kind comment. We could have a longer discussion about my party, of course it has its flaws but some important ideals too which matter to all of us. But if your politics are different that makes your comment all the more generous! https://twitter.com/RogerAEF/status/1533503600105869317

What could be more quintessentially British? Thank you to Mary Grove and her wonderful Hambledon team for a friendly, lively and uplifting Jubilee lunch - we even sang Sweet Caroline!

Former UK Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt told Festival-goers at Hay about the issue of avoidable deaths in hospitals.

#HayFestival2022 @Jeremy_Hunt

Wonderful news. I met the families today and I’m certain that knowing @DOckendenLtd is at the helm of this investigation will bring enormous comfort and confidence to families who have already suffered the most unimaginable pain.

Michael Buchanan @BBCMBuchanan

NEW: Donna Ockenden @DOckendenLtd has been appointed chair of the inquiry into maternity care in Nottingham.

This is why it is absolutely crazy to publish a workforce strategy that doesn't answer the simple question as to whether or not we are training enough doctors for the future...https://www.theguardian.com/society/2022/mar/15/791-medical-graduates-could-miss-out-on-nhs-junior-doctor-training?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Other

Jeremy Hunt @Jeremy_Hunt

The government says it will publish a workforce strategy but it looks like it won't even answer the simplest of questions: are we actually training enough doctors and nurses for 10-15 years' time? See this frustrating exchange with the head of Health Education England

Only half the population have access to NHS dentistry - and although the number of dentists is going up, the number of NHS dentists is going down...hear this sobering evidence
