Doctor’s petition to sack Jeremy Hunt gets 80,000 signatures on first DAY of new website

A bid to get Jeremy Hunt sacked has gained more than 80,000 signatures – in the first DAY of the government’s new petitions website.

The Health Secretary is accused of having ‘alienated the entire workforce of the NHS’ in the furious missive by doctor Ash Sadighi .

He set up the petition yesterday and it’s been careering towards 100,000 signatures, at which point it’ll be debated by a committee of MPs.

And it’s already soared over the 10,000 mark, which means the government will have to give Dr Sadighi an official response.

The petition asks MPs to debate a vote of no confidence in Mr Hunt, who’s angered thousands of medics with his plans for a 7-day NHS.
