Jeremy HuntJeremy Hunt has been confirmed as retaining the post of Health Secretary, after a morning of speculation on twitter that he had been sacked. Hunt tweeted: “'Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated...' Thrilled to be back in the best job in Government.”

It’s thought Hunt will impose the new junior doctor contracts. However it’s not yet clear when the Government’s Childhood Obesity Strategy will be announced. This was originally scheduled for last Autumn, but it was postponed again until after the Referendum. Campaigners will be demanding a clear release schedule.

Other additions to the new Prime Minister Theresa’s May’s cabinet include Justine Greening, who replaces Nicky Morgan as Education and Equalities Secretary.

The Association of School and College Leaders said that the new education secretary would face the "stark reality" of schools facing "real-terms funding cuts and a teacher recruitment crisis".
