The Government is attempting to use the undoubted momentum of its election victory to tackle issues and interests from the outset. But as things stand it faces battles with the BBC, the trade unions and now the BMA as well.
Putting aside the over-riding need to get a deal over European renegotiations, such battles take a huge amount of time and effort to deal with. It also requires, when push comes to shove, public support.
The Conservative know that they have a historic weakness where it comes to the NHS. It is not clear whether people want wholesale change made to the BBC. With the trade unions, the Government does appear to have more support.
If economic measures start to slide whilst the Government is engaged in these other battles then this put a further strain on support.
The campaigning on all sides is only just beginning.
Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has said he is prepared to impose seven-day working on hospital doctors.Mr Hunt told the BBC that a "Monday to Friday culture" in parts of the NHS had "tragic consequences" and said 6,000 people die each year because of this.British Medical Association leader Dr Mark Porter said the union supported more seven-day working but accused Mr Hunt of being "too simplistic".A September deadline is expected to be set by Mr Hunt for a deal with the BMA.
