Public Bill Committee: Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (27 Nov 2018)

Stephen Hammond: Q This is my final question to you, Mr Henderson. In your evidence to the Lords Select Committee, you also made the point about costs and administrative burdens. As I understand it, if a new system were needed or if a no-deal scenario unfortunately arose—that is not the Government’s intention—the costs or administrative burden would be a change in coding, rather than any other major...

Public Bill Committee: Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (27 Nov 2018)

Stephen Hammond: Q Thank you. Mr Jethwa, good morning. I noticed in your written brief that the BMA stated that the Government should undertake every effort to retain the current model of reciprocal healthcare. My first question is the same as that to Mr Henderson: can you state why you think the current system works so well?

Public Bill Committee: Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (27 Nov 2018)

Stephen Hammond: Q Given that, and given that that is the intention of the Bill, do you think that the Government are taking the right approach to ensuring that they put those arrangements in place and that the legislation has the flexibility to cover both what we hope for, which is an achievable deal, and a no-deal situation?

Public Bill Committee: Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (27 Nov 2018)

Stephen Hammond: Q In terms of the security arrangements, do you mean security of data?

Public Bill Committee: Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (27 Nov 2018)

Stephen Hammond: Q Can I come back on the data point that you both commented on? Clause 4 deals directly with that and provides the usual protections in terms of data. I heard Mr Henderson’s point, and it is important that there needs to be a flow of data, although that needs to be secure. Are you happy that the protections in the Bill at the moment are the normal and adequate protections?

Where appropriate, it is for the GMC to investigate complaints about doctors on their register and assess whether they should be referred to the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service, who determine whether any sanction...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Air Ambulance Services (27 Nov 2018)

Health and Social Care: A&E Targets (27 Nov 2018)

Stephen Hammond: rose—

Health and Social Care: A&E Targets (27 Nov 2018)

Stephen Hammond: Thank you very much. The Government’s mandate to NHS England for 2018-19 clearly sets out A&E performance, and it will see performance improve. So far this year 18 million more attendances have been seen within the standard, and the NHS is introducing more options for urgent patient care. Of course, as the hon. Lady will know, the extra £20 billion a year that is going into the health...

Health and Social Care: A&E Targets (27 Nov 2018)

Stephen Hammond: The NHS faces a challenging winter, but it has been planning throughout the year for this winter. It has been supported by an extra £420 million to redevelop A&Es, improve emergency care and help patients get home quicker. Those plans, more directly, include reducing the extended hospital stays we saw last year, increasing access to GP appointments and increasing the volume of cases that can...

Health and Social Care: A&E Targets (27 Nov 2018)

Stephen Hammond: My hon. Friend has always been an assiduous advocate for his constituents and their concerns. He is right to make that case today. He is also right that, thanks to the hard-working staff in his hospital and across the country, the four-hour target continues to be met for nearly nine out of 10 patients. I will be delighted to come to Stafford.

Health and Social Care: A&E Targets (27 Nov 2018)

Stephen Hammond: The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right. There can be no statement other than complete condemnation of attacks. We have changed the law, and it came into force earlier this month.

Health and Social Care: A&E Targets (27 Nov 2018)

Stephen Hammond: As I said in my earlier answer, we recognise that this winter will be challenging. We recognise that the A&E performance standard is not currently being met, but, as the hon. Gentleman knows, we are investing an extra £20 billion in the NHS to ensure that the standards are met. The NHS will use that investment to treat 250,000 more patients and to improve A&E performance across the country.
