Come on JoeL1994 - those people who've had their cancer ops cancelled/postponed don't have all day to wait whilst you go making your dough as the Health Secretary
Well, maybe they have all day, but for some of them, certainly not long!!

I would like to ask the Rt Hon. JoeL1994 what they are planing, if anything, to combat the absolutely atrocious crimes of hiding data when it comes to the publication of medicinal trials.
See the following books by Ben Goldacre for more info:

Can the Right Honourable Gentleman (or lady, don't want to misgender) affirm how he plans to help resolve the reliance on foreign workers that the NHS has?
I think first and foremost we should be encouraging young people to pursue careers in healthcare through the maintenance of the NHS Bursary. I have laid out my reasons for retaining this in my SOI. We should also be looking to raise working conditions within the NHS through fair pay, greater autonomy in relevant roles, greater benefits for long service and outcome measures to demonstrate the change that staff can have on a patient's life. In no way should we discourage foreign nationals from applying for jobs in the NHS. Skilled workers are a valuable asset whether they are British, European or from further abroad. I'm sure my right honourable friends the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for the Home Department will agree with me when I say that we should utilise the skills of individuals who wish to work in the NHS, providing healthcare for the entire UK, so long as they abide by the core value base of the health service and the wider society.

Currently, there are a lot of people, I think across the NHS, who say that they need more money. Whilst this is certainly a good point - you can't operate without the cash - just chucking money at the NHS won't solve the problem. May I ask the Rt Hon Gentleman what he thinks are the key areas where funding should be targeted, and what it specifically should be used for?
Saracen's Fez - My thanks for reopening the thread, Mr Speaker, I'd be more than happy to tackle any smaller follow up questions in the AtG thread.
