Mr Hunt, who recently bolstered his position with the added responsibility of social care in a cabinet reshuffle, is expected to visit the city today and speak with staff at different providers.

During Mr Hunt's last visit to Norwich last year, he dodged the press on a flying visit to the Norsecare Village in Bowthorpe.

One of the sites he will visit today will be the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH), however the visit is understood to be private.

Along with other hospitals the NNUH came under intense pressure over the Christmas and New Year period.
