My GP retired a few months ago. His replacement stayed for only two weeks, and the practice is still looking for another. Until they do, they aren't taking new patients.

Not sure if this is just Osbourne stirring it again:
Jeremy Hunt prepares for Tory leadership bid as he sets his sights on Downing Street

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt is manoeuvring towards Number 10 and considering making a bid for power as the next Conservative leader, according to reports.

The secretary is reportedly planning to throw his hat into to the ring in the next leadership contest after Theresa May steps down

According to the Sunday Times, he has consulted fellow Tories and party donors about whether he should vie for the job in 2019, when the Prime Minister is expected to resign.

But he's been an excellent minister from a certain point of view.

Or has he? His problem at DCMS was basically getting caught. And health - if there's one department there is no forgiveness for fucking up, it's health.

So what has he got? A safe seat and Rupert Murdoch on speed dial. Bit like Gove. Spot a pattern?

Jeremy Hunt ‘Hell Bent’ On Nursing Cuts, RCN Claims As Labour Vows To Restore Student Bursary
The Health Secretary has been accused by the Royal College of Nursing of being “hell bent” on reducing access to the profession after his department said postgraduate nurses will be forced to pay tuition fees for the first time.

The controversial change, slipped out on the Department of Health and Social care’s website Friday afternoon, came despite widespread criticism of the Tories’ decision to replace undergraduate bursaries for nurses with student loans for fees of up to £9,000 a year.
