Register here to join our In Conversation Live with Jeremy Hunt

Jeremy Hunt, former Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs of the United Kingdom, will be joining Professor Sir Simon Wessely for a tantalising discussion on his journey into the world of politics, highlights from his Secretary of State for Health and Social Care position, and his views on how the COVID-19 pandemic will progress.  

Instead of charging for this webinar we are asking people to support the Royal Society of Medicine in these unprecedented times. Now more than ever, we need your help to continue our work. Please consider making a donation for watching this webinar. Thank you for your generosity.

In May 2010 Jeremy was appointed Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport in the new Conservative - Liberal Democrat coalition. From September 2012 to July 2018, Jeremy held the position of Secretary of State for Health. He was reappointed in the role in January 2018 with the added responsibility of Social Care. In June 2018, Jeremy became the longest serving Secretary of State for Health in British history.  It was a turbulent period, including reacting to the Francis Report, an increased emphasis on patient safety, and of course the junior doctors dispute.

In July 2018 he was appointed Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, a position he held until July 2019.  Since the last General Election he has been Chair of the influential Health Select Committee.
