Jeremy Hunt: Leadership is crucial. That’s the moral in the story of how Colchester NHS Trust was turned round.
Introducing a program of Ofsted-Style ratings and special measures into the NHS was controversial at the time. But the move has paid off.
Jeremy Hunt: This week’s Budget delivered for the NHS, social care – and the vulnerable people who depend on both

Labour’s health policy is heavy on rhetoric and light on policy detail.
Provided, of course, that there aren’t good clinical or personal reasons for a delay. This is the new ambition that I’m setting for the NHS today.
