SPECIAL: Matt Hancock Must Go

If Matt Hancock was a doctor, he’d be facing the General Medical Council’s (GMC) Fitness to Practice panel for his incompetence and lies. He is not fit to be a practice manager of a GP surgery, let alone a health secretary. He should be sacked immediately …… writes Dr Kailash Chand

I agree with DC!  Who can disagree with Boris Johnson’s Man Friday Dominic Cummings when he asked for Health Secretary Matt Hancock to be sacked for “criminal” behaviour and consistent lies?

I have watched more than a dozen health secretaries since I came to UK in 1978, and I have never encountered a health secretary who is incompetent, lies so regularly, so shamelessly and as systemically as, Matt Hancock.

The department of health was a “smoking ruin” in the early days of the COVID pandemic, and remains in shambles.

The government’s procurement system before 2020 was an “expensive disaster zone” and when the coronavirus pandemic hit, it “completely fell over.” He claimed putting s shields around ‘CARE HOMES ‘quite the opposite he did, he sent the people with covid back to care homes to die. Throughout this pandemic, Matt Hancock consistently exhibited that he prioritises the interests of private companies’ profits over public health. That’s why he handed billions of pounds of contracts to Tory party donners and his mates in the private sector rather than invested properly in our NHS and local public health teams.

Matt Hancock’s track record is plain for all to see. An NHS on its knees, broken, flailing, over 128,000 died, including over 900 health workers in the pandemic and now patients suffering in their millions on waiting lists.

He has managed to insult and alienate NHS staff across the board. Including GPs and consultants, who are considering retiring early is staggeringly high and is a huge worry for the NHS and patient care. The health service could be left with a shortage of clinicians, with the remaining doctors spread too thinly. This has huge implications for recruitment and retention for the medical profession. We will have fewer staff in an even less safe NHS coping with post covid illness.

If Matt Hancock was a doctor, he’d be facing the General Medical Council’s (GMC) Fitness to Practice panel for his incompetence and lies. He is not fit to be a practice manager of a GP surgery, let alone a health secretary. He should be sacked immediately.
