As part of a cabinet reshuffle, the UK Prime Minister David Cameron has announced over Twitter that former culture secretary Jeremy Hunt, a supporter of the use of homeopathy on the National Health Service, is England's new health secretary. He will replace Andrew Lansley, architect of the controversial health and social care reform act that will bring GP commissioning and value-based pricing for new medicines. Mr Lansley faced heavy criticism over the reforms and will take over as leader of the House of Commons.
