Healthy Future For Jeremy Hunt?

With the possibility of a doctor's strike looming, William Hill have begun betting on whether Jeremy Hunt, who has been Secretary of State for Health since 2012, will still be in the role on January 1, 2017.

William Hill believes he has every chance of achieving that and offer him at 2/7 to survive in the job that long - but make him a 5/2 chance no longer to be in place by then.

'Mr Hunt is not currently every medic's favourite politician, but we think he can probably look forward to a healthy future in his role' said William Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
