Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 16 - Intervention orders (23 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: Is the hon. Gentleman suggesting that people serve on boards merely because it is a source of income? I thought that the remuneration was modest, in recognition only of the time that they had given.

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 16 - Intervention orders (23 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: The importance of accountability is clearly recognised. I am, therefore, disappointed that we will have to rely on the grapevine and the odd press release when we want to know the reasons for the Secretary of State's actions. As the hon. Member for Runnymede and Weybridge said, those means of communication are not readily accessible to Opposition politicians. Would it not be much better for...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 16 - Intervention orders (23 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: In my earlier contributions, I did not have an opportunity to declare my interests as a general practitioner contracted to the national health service, and as someone who sat on health authorities for many years until I was booted out by the previous Government on the ground that I worked for the NHS and knew something about it. These interesting amendments show a difference in emphasis...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 16 - Intervention orders (23 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: Exactly. We are realists. The hon. Gentleman clearly has no ambition ever to be Secretary of State for Health. He suggests that we should tie the hands of the Secretary of State to such an extent that he could not intervene unless both Houses were sitting. That is clearly nonsense.

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 16 - Intervention orders (23 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: I have talked about paranoia before. I see the intervention powers as a tidying up of many little powers that already exist, and as meshing with the more overt, and perhaps clearer, way in which the Secretary of State can direct policy in the national health service. I see nothing wrong with that. My only concern is that the status of health authorities and trusts, the commissioning bodies...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 16 - Intervention orders (23 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: Is there not a slight discrepancy between what the hon. Gentleman is saying, and what the hon. Member for Woodspring (Dr. Fox) said last week, when he made the Secretary of State personally responsible for not having discrimination towards the dead? Is the hon. Gentleman now suggesting that the Secretary of State should not be responsible for discrimination towards the living?

(18 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: Is it not a fact that the MPC has been largely ineffective because it has not had the power to direct? If the pattern described by the hon. Member for Runnymede and Weybridge were true, we would have a Cuban-type health system in which doctors could be directed where to go. Does the Minister recognise that independent practitioners will move to where jobs are created. If vacancies are not...

(18 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: First, may I apologise, Mr. Maxton, for my discourtesy in leaving the Room after I have spoken? I have a previous engagement. May I also say how pleased I am that you are in the Chair? The amendments are interesting, although I was not sure of their purpose, so I am grateful for the explanation given by the hon. Member for Runnymede and Weybridge. I would welcome a move away from rigid, but...

Opposition Day: Teacher Supply (18 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Bedford Hospital (16 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: I strongly welcomed the guidelines when the Government issued them. Investment in mortuaries is always placed behind investment in, for example, children's wards. It is important that it is given due credence in our planning. Does the right hon. Gentleman accept that what happened at Bedford hospital was not unusual in the national health service or in private undertaking establishments...

Cancer Research (11 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: Does the hon. Lady agree that the GMC said that doctors should not pass on a patient's name if that patient expressly objected? It is a matter of patient consent.

Cancer Research (11 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: I congratulate the hon. Member for Rayleigh (Dr. Clark) on an excellent report, which is also timely. As the hon. Gentleman pointed out, cancer is not all about misery now; it is also about hope. I remember that, 30 years ago, childhood leukaemias involved nasty treatment and extremely poor outcomes. People indulged in "heroic" surgery, in which the patient was the victim and the surgeon was...

Cancer Research (11 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: I am not as suspicious or as cynical as the hon. Gentleman, but we perhaps take a different approach to these matters. It is difficult to cost the two. My plea is that, where clinicians are working in an area where there is active research, that should be recognised in their work load and their departments should be adequately staffed to cope with some of the work that needs to be done. I...

Orders of the Day — Health and Social Care Bill (10 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: I shall not talk about community health councils or long-term care—not because those are not important parts of the Bill, but because that ground has been covered well in the debate, in particular by my hon. Friends the Members for North Devon (Mr. Harvey) and for Sutton and Cheam (Mr. Burstow). A number of the issues in the Bill concern me as matters of detail, but they are best explored...

Orders of the Day — Health and Social Care Bill (10 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: The hon. Gentleman makes a valid point, and it needs to be examined in Committee. The wording in the Bill is unfortunate. It seems to imply that funding will go only to trusts that meet performance targets, whereas the Secretary of State has said that funds would be made available to other trusts, but with strings attached. That implies that a management team will emerge from Richmond house...

Orders of the Day — Health and Social Care Bill (10 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: I accept that distinction, but GPs will still be contracting out a responsibility. Before, we contracted out a service and retained responsibility for it. There is a difference. My other misgiving concerns the extension of the private finance initiative into primary care. It is clearly good for GPs to have access to funding. That allows them to improve their capital stock and give a better...

Excluding these words

You can also do this from the main search box by putting a minus sign before words you don’t want: like hunting -fox

We also support a bunch of boolean search modifiers, like AND and NEAR, for precise searching.
