Has a crime been committed? If crime is an affront to the accepted standards of society then, yes, that can be argued in both cases.
No, a crime is what the currently written law states is a crime.
In contrast, did, and does, Jeremy Hunt knowingly cause harm by his actions? The answer is unambiguously yes in my opinion. This is because there is amply evidence to suggest that alternatives are available; that he knows of them and does nothing to act on them. He is, then, guilty of causing pain and loss of life when both could be avoided. It is not just his judgement that has erred; his actions have been informed by that judgement despite knowing what would happen.
Sometimes a little theorising helps.
Hunt is slowing the rise in the NHS budget. This is now a crime in RitchieUnThink.
BTW, if people can be charged with crimes for “bad” policy options when do we stick Ritchie in the Tower? For the crime against humanity of stupidity?
