Recent appearances

  • Junior Doctors Contract 20 Nov 2015

    What evidence does the Minister have that reforming the junior doctors contract and having a seven-day NHS will make the NHS safer? Will he commit to publishing that evidence?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements 18 Nov 2015
