30 January 2020

Following an election for the position of Chair, Jeremy Hunt – Conservative MP for South West Surrey – has been confirmed as the new Chair-elect of the Health and Social Care Select Committee.

The secret ballot of MPs took place on Wednesday 29th January. Votes were counted under the Alternative Vote system.

Mr Hunt will take up the role of Chair once the remaining members of the Committee have been appointed by the House.

Mr Hunt said:

"Over nearly a decade in frontline politics, the NHS has always been my greatest political passion, and I am honoured to have been elected Chair of the Health and Social Care Select Committee. I look forward to working with my committee to provide a strong, independent voice that supports health and social care services in a very pressured period."
