Spoke with @Reuters about the vital role of information sharing in global pandemics. We must learn lessons from the early days of Covid. I'll be discussing this - and the silent pandemic of AMR - at tomorrow's @G7 health ministers meeting. reuters.com/business/healthc…

Pleased to see the highest ever number of nurses, midwives and nursing associates on the @nmcnews register. We are growing the workforce to help tackle the Covid backlog, and we are over halfway to delivering 50,000 more nurses in the NHS.

Congratulations @sundersays @britishfuture on all the thoughtful work you've done in the last decade. It's had a real influence on the debate around our national identity and integration.

Biological sex matters - ask any doctor or nurse. Facts matter. Respectful debate matters. This growing culture of shutting people down is deeply disturbing and must be challenged.

When it comes to dementia, we know there have never been any quick fixes and there aren’t any easy wins. Our dementia strategy will be a 10-Year Plan because we can only get to grips with long-term challenges by thinking long-term.

I’m freezing prescription charges this year to help ease cost of living pressures & put money back in people’s pockets. The rise in the cost of living has been unavoidable & while we can’t completely prevent it, where we can help - we will.👇🏽 gov.uk/government/news/new-p…

I'm sorry for your loss @TimesONeill. For too long ME has not been taken seriously enough my the medical community - I'm determined that that ends now.
