1 min read

The Institute for Government was delighted to welcome former health and foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt.

From the earliest stages of the coronavirus pandemic, Jeremy Hunt, Chair of the Health and Social Care Select Committee, has raised concerns about the government’s response. He discussed where the government has made mistakes, where it has made improvements, and how the NHS has responded to the crisis. The UK’s longest-serving health secretary set out the lessons that both the government and the NHS needs to learn – and what can be done to ensure that the UK is ready to meet a potential second wave of Covid-19.

Mr Hunt, who also served as foreign secretary, discussed the global consequences of coronavirus, what lessons can be learned from other countries, and how they can work together in their response to the pandemic. He also discussed the government’s recent decision to fold the Department for International Development into the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

He was in conversation with Bronwen Maddox, Director of the Institute for Government.
