Matt Hancock changes Government role, exits radio
Matt Hancock, Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has replaced Jeremy Hunt as Health Secretary.
The West Suffolk MP was an active supporter of radio after replacing Ed Vaizey as Communications Minister in 2016. Earlier this year he was promoted to the cabinet as the Digital Secretary.
Matt was previously the Minister for the Cabinet Office and Paymaster General. He served as jointly Minister of State for Business and Enterprise and Minister of State for Energy in the Conservative-Liberal Democrat Coalition Government.
The changes are being made following the resignation of Boris Johnson on Monday afternoon. Matt Hancock’s replacement is yet to be announced at the time of writing.
Really looking forward to joining @DHSCgovuk at such an important time for our great NHS. I can’t wait to get started
