Responding to the Secretary of State’s announcement on the junior doctors’ contract, Dr Maureen Baker, Chair of the Royal College of GPs, should have said:
Jeremy Hunt is unfortunately a politician. All utterances that come from his mouth should be treated with extreme caution as they may contain comments that are not entirely based in truth. He has the mainstream media eating from his hand. I don’t trust him and neither should you. We are stuck with him as our Secretary of State, but we at the RCGP will support our juniors despite his every effort to undermine the great work of not just our junior doctors, but all our members.
