Mr. Hancock has held the job since July 2018 when he was appointed by Theresa May and succeeded the longest-serving Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt.

During his time in office, the health service has experienced significant challenges including a worsening staffing deficit and the longest A&E waiting times in recent history.

Mr. Hancock says he is “delighted” with his reappointment.

In a statement on social media, he said; “I’m so thrilled to be back as Health Secretary and there is so much to do.

“A massive thanks to everyone I have worked with over the past 18-months and now we are going to get cracking – delivering those manifesto commitments, making sure we improve NHS performance, reforming social, supporting the life sciences and of course dealing with Coronavirus and keeping the public safe.

“It’s an absolutely brilliant job and I’m really delighted – let’s get back to work.”
