Orkambi and Cystic Fibrosis — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Mar 2018)

Mike Penning: It is a pleasure to take part in this debate. Like everybody in this room, I have constituents who suffer from this terrible genetic disease. We live in a society where sometimes those who shout loudest get heard more, but interestingly, it is not possible for those who suffer from this terrible disease and their families and loved-ones to have orchestrated the petition. Members of the...

Orkambi and Cystic Fibrosis — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Mar 2018)

Mike Penning: My apologies—don’t forget I am a southerner. The hon. Member for Dudley North (Ian Austin) and I had a good meeting at the roundtable. All of us learned things. For colleagues who were not there, there are some good notes to come around. We thought we would not have a decision by tonight from NHS England on the Vertex proposals—it usually takes much longer—so I was...

Social Security: Hemel Hempstead Urgent Care Centre (13 Mar 2018)

Mike Penning: Let me go back a fraction. If the decision has to be based on clinical advice—I understand the principle—what is the point of consulting the public, who are not clinically trained? We have to consult them, because that is what the law says, so is the law wrong for saying we should consult people who are not clinically trained? If the decision has already been made, what is the point?

Social Security: Hemel Hempstead Urgent Care Centre (13 Mar 2018)

Mike Penning: The Minister has just told the House that there has been a complete change in how physiotherapy is provided—it was provided at the hospital and is now provided elsewhere. There was no consultation on that, although I understand that there was a requirement to do so, because this involved a complete change of service in respect of where people go and so on. The point I am trying to make...

Social Security: Hemel Hempstead Urgent Care Centre (13 Mar 2018)

Mike Penning: I want to help the Minister. The urgent care centre is gone. We do not have an urgent care centre; it is now an urgent treatment centre. This is something that confuses my constituents as well. I was trying to make two points. First, it is not just about the clinical commissioning group on its own. The decision to close over Christmas in 2016 was made by West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS...

Social Security: Hemel Hempstead Urgent Care Centre (13 Mar 2018)

Mike Penning: It is not often that we get more time to speak in this place, so while I have the Minister at the Dispatch Box, can he answer this very simple question: what recourse is there for me, as the MP, and for my constituents when we are misled—I know that I have privilege, but I am using the word “misled”—by a senior NHS management team about what is going to happen to the...

Social Security: Hemel Hempstead Urgent Care Centre (13 Mar 2018)

Mike Penning: Thank you, Mr Speaker. I have even longer to pontificate, which is great news. Justin Dealey acquired an interview with the said Ms Fisher, the chief executive of West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust. It was quite a long interview, in which Ms Fisher indicated: “This is a short-term measure which is us acting in the interest of patient safety because, for the next few weeks over the...

Social Security: Hemel Hempstead Urgent Care Centre (13 Mar 2018)

Mike Penning: I clearly agree with my hon. Friend. It was kind of him to come and tell me that he wanted to intervene on me on behalf of other parts of the country that are facing similar pressures. This was not about money. Normally, when our constituents come to talk to us, especially about the health service, it is about money. They tell us that they are really concerned that there is not enough money...

Social Security: Hemel Hempstead Urgent Care Centre (13 Mar 2018)

Mike Penning: First, may I say what a privilege it is to have secured this Adjournment debate this evening, and how proud I am of my constituents who for so many years have been fighting the changes and particularly the cuts to healthcare in the Dacorum area where my constituency sits? In particular, I thank Edie and Ron Glatter and the Dacorum Hospital Action Group and its fantastic chair Betty Harris,...

Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review (21 Feb 2018)

Mike Penning: It was a pleasure to lead the debate in the House when we secured time from the Backbench Business Committee to discuss this. I really appreciate the tone adopted by the Secretary of State, and by the Prime Minister when I asked her earlier if there was good news. May I also pay tribute to the Minister, my hon. Friend the Member for Winchester (Steve Brine), who is sitting next to my right...

Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Feb 2018)

Mike Penning: May I thank the Prime Minister for taking a personal interest by meeting myself and other colleagues from across the House to discuss getting justice for the Primodos victims? These people went to their GPs in good faith and were given a drug that resulted in the loss of babies’ lives, abortions and the birth of disfigured young people. Does the Prime Minister have any good news for the...

UK Basketball — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (20 Feb 2018)

Mike Penning: The Minister is passionate about sport and in particular about basketball, although I know she does not want to be drawn into her personal views and, as a former Minister, I fully understand that. The difference between basketball and the other sports on the list she just referred to—I have looked at it—is that basketball touches areas of the community that are not touched by...
