New Secretary of State for Health Named

Jeremy Hunt has replaced Andrew Lansley as health secretary in England. Hunt was previously the Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media, and Sport. Lansley was the driving force behind the controversial Health and Social Care Act, which was passed in March and is set to bring a major restructuring of the National Health Service by putting 60 percent of the budget into the hands of general-practitioner-led clinical commissioning groups. Lansley is now the leader of the House of Commons.
