Mr Hunt, who is now chairman of the Health and Social Care Committee, appeared via video link during a debate on the future of health and care.
He told MPs: “Can I start my comments by thanking the brilliant staff at the Royal Surrey County Hospital for the wonderful care they gave me this morning, as it happens, when I unfortunately slipped over and broke my arm on a morning run and I have just come back from there.”
Earlier on Thursday, Mr Hunt had uploaded a picture of himself in a hospital bed next to NHS worker Charlotte on Facebook.
In the photo Charlotte, had put a plaster cast on his arm.
The picture was captioned: “The perils of running on an icy road in February.
“Thanks to Charlotte and the brilliant Royal Surrey staff for looking after me so well! Happy Hunt children will now get busy drawing pictures…”
