Biteback is delighted to announce that it is to publish Matt Hancock’s inside story of the pandemic.

Hancock served as Secretary of State for Health and Social Care from 2018 to 2021.

For eighteen months, the MP for West Suffolk led the UK government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. The book, based on contemporaneous accounts, will recount first-hand the most important events and decisions as they unfolded throughout this unprecedented global crisis.

The book will provide a unique and candid account of Britain’s battle to turn the tide against Covid-19.

For the first time, Hancock will reveal the crucial moments of the struggle to save lives and the race to develop the vaccine. He will give his unique perspective on how the NHS rose to the challenge, recognising the incredible hard work and sacrifice of so many. He will offer an honest assessment of the lessons we need to learn for next time – because there will be a next time.

Matt Hancock’s pandemic diaries will be published later this year and his royalties will be donated to NHS charities.
