He said: "We will build new hospitals, we will do upgrades. This is a massive project which requires a revolution in the way we do medical care and social care."

Mr Johnson also said his proposal on social care would be brought forward, and claimed that governments have been shirking this issue for 30 years.

He said it would be done "in this parliament", but refused to specify when - later clarifying he would bring a plan this year and carry it out by the end of his five-year term.

On Flybe, the prime minister said it was not for government to step in and save businesses in trouble, but he did see the importance of the network in regional connectivity.

Mr Johnson said they were "working very hard but there are limits commercially to what a government can do".

He added: "But we will ensure there is regional connectivity that this country needs.

"That is part of our agenda of uniting and levelling up. We don't have good enough infrastructure.

"People don't feel they have a chance to get to the opportunity areas."

The prime minister was also asked about Huawei's potential involvement in the UK's 5G infrastructure, after the US reportedly warned that using the Chinese company's technology would be "nothing short of madness".

He said: "The British public deserve to have access to the best possible technology.

"We want to put in gigabit broadband, but if people oppose one brand or another then they have to tell us what's the alternative.

"I don't want as the UK prime minister to put in any infrastructure that would compromise our security or ability to co-operate with Five Eyes intelligence."

Mr Johnson was also asked when the Russia report would be released, which investigated the country's interference in UK politics.

He said: "I don't know when it will be published but there's no reason it shouldn't be.

"I happen to have read it, and I think after all that clamour in the election campaign people will be disappointed."
