Adam Kay is sending his exposé of life as a junior doctor during the leadership candidate’s time as health secretary to highlight how he ‘left the NHS in tatters’
Adam Kay is sending a copy of his bestselling memoir about life as a junior doctor, This Is Going to Hurt, to all 330 Conservative MPs ahead of their vote on the new Tory leader, to remind them of how leading contender Jeremy Hunt “left the NHS in tatters” after his stint as health secretary.
Hunt, who is now foreign secretary, has pitched himself as the “serious leader” the UK needs in the Conservative party leadership race, arguing that he is the best negotiator to deliver Brexit. Kay said he was sending his memoirs to MPs because he “wanted to remind those ‘honourable friends’ with any honour quite what those in the health service actually thought of those ‘negotiation skills’ Mr Hunt has been boasting about’.
