Matt Hancock becomes new Health and Social Care Secretary

July 10, 2018

Matt Hancock, the MP for West Suffolk, has been appointed as the new Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.

Mr Hancock has been the Culture Secretary since the beginning of the year, but was given the health brief yesterday following Jeremy Hunt’s move to the Foreign Office. He has previously held various ministerial roles; most interestingly he worked in the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills between September 2012 and March 2015.

Prior to entering politics, Mr Hancock has worked in a software business, as an economist for the Bank of England, and later as both an advisor and Chief of Staff to George Osborne when he was Shadow Chancellor.

The rest of the health ministerial team remains the same for the time being.

PSNC congratulates the new Health Secretary on his new role and looks forward to working with him to develop community pharmacy services for the benefit of patients, the NHS and pharmacies.
