Health Secretary To Survive?

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.

Hills believe 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 politican, but we think he can probably look forward to a healthy future in his role' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
