The health minister of the UK, Nicky Morgan has said that she will not stand for re-election in the next election. This comes as no surprise considering the fact that the general public is dissatisfied with her performance. The NHS and the education system are not up to scratch and the Government has also been caught up in an ongoing scandal about a paedophile MP who used his office to procure children for sex.
The health and social care bill, which she introduced, was seen by the public to be a flop. The health minister has also been responsible for the introduction of a controversial health service charge. There was also the issue of the junior doctor’s contract that has been in dispute ever since it was introduced. The junior doctor is one of the most respected doctors in the country and this controversy has caused great turmoil for her.
The health minister is a woman and many people in the UK are not happy with her gender, however, she is actually a decent person. This is not to say that men cannot be good ministers because in the United Kingdom we have a number of outstanding male ministers. However, the recent political storm has caused her to lose much of the goodwill that she has.
The health secretary is one of the most powerful figures within the NHS. This makes it very difficult for her to achieve much in terms of political reform. She has a long time to accomplish these things so her popularity has dropped steadily over recent years. Her personal life has also come under the spotlight and she has been forced to come clean on her private life.
As the minister responsible for the public image of the NHS, Nicky has a lot of responsibility. If the public views her performance badly then she could lose her position. Many believe that this will be the end of her tenure, and she is likely to seek a new role once she has served out her full five year term.
The Health Minister of the UK is now facing the possibility of being stripped of her position. This comes after a review into her performance that was ordered by the Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt.
One of the first things that the new Health Minister, Nicky Morgan is going to have to do is to convince the public that the public have confidence in her. She needs to show that she is a competent person and is capable of handling the workload of the role.
The health minister is expected to introduce a raft of changes to the healthcare system. The reforms include reducing waiting times, expanding the scope of medical treatment and improving services. There will be a rise in the number of consultants and the number of nurses within the NHS.
These new plans are set out in a number of reports and each of these has to be explained and debated. These reports will be submitted to the Health and Social Care Information Centre and a number of changes will have to be implemented. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) will have to review these reports and decide how to implement them.
The Health Secretary has the final say on which reports she accepts and which she does not accept, and he will use this to influence her when it comes to implementing the reforms that are being recommended. This is a delicate situation. The Health Minister has an enormous amount of responsibility and is likely to face a lot of criticism.
There are a number of key areas in which the UK can improve. The health service needs to have a greater focus on prevention and this needs to become an important area of focus.
With the introduction of the new plans, waiting times will be reduced meaning that more people will be able to receive treatment within a reasonable period of time. This is a huge step forward and the Health Minister is leading this change by ensuring that everyone is given the best possible chance.
