Safeguarding Adults with Learning Disabilities — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Barbara Keeley: I did not manage to raise the very important point that my hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle upon Tyne North (Catherine McKinnell) raised about the fact that Lee Irving was labelled as difficult to help and classed as an adult who could choose a lifestyle, with such tragic results. That has echoes of other forms of abuse because, as my hon. Friend so clearly pointed out to us, his...

Safeguarding Adults with Learning Disabilities — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Barbara Keeley: It is an honour to speak with you in the Chair, Mr Wilson. As other hon. Members have done, I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle upon Tyne North (Catherine McKinnell). It is usual to congratulate another Member on securing such an important debate, and she has been persistent in trying to secure this one; the dignified and passionate way in which she set out a deeply tragic...

Safeguarding Adults with Learning Disabilities — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Barbara Keeley: My hon. Friend is making a valiant attempt. This is a very difficult subject and she is talking about a very distressing and tragic case. To go back to the point about greater public awareness, I have been a Member for 12 years and have certainly never been offered any training about learning disabilities. There is so much to know and she has just given us a useful range of facts. I encourage...

EU Exit Negotiations: Points of Order (17 Oct 2017)

Barbara Keeley: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. In health oral questions on 16 October, the Health Secretary answered questions on the mental health workforce. It was clear that two of his answers were not correct. He stated twice that the mental health workforce had increased by 30,000 staff, but, as I understand it, the correct figure is about 690. There has been an attempt today to correct the record,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Mental Health Workforce (10 Oct 2017)

Barbara Keeley: On World Mental Health Day, may I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Washington and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson) for wearing yellow for #HelloYellow on behalf of our team? The Secretary of State’s claim that thousands of extra mental health staff will be appointed by 2021 is fanciful unless he tells us how they will be funded. Today, the Care Quality Commission reports that mental...

Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

Barbara Keeley: It is an honour to speak with you in the Chair, Mr Howarth. I very much congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, Southgate (Bambos Charalambous) on securing the debate. It is an important one because, as we have heard, diagnosis is the vital first step towards getting support for people with autism. For children with autism, and their parents, getting a diagnosis is the first...

Adult Social Care Funding (6 Jul 2017)

Barbara Keeley: Does the Minister share my deep concern about the state of social care highlighted—

Adult Social Care Funding (6 Jul 2017)

Barbara Keeley: (Urgent Question): To ask the Minister to respond to the Care Quality Commission report on the state of adult social care and on issues of funding social care.

Adult Social Care Funding (6 Jul 2017)

Barbara Keeley: I thank the Minister for that response, but I really must ask him whether he shares my deep concern about the state of adult social care, as highlighted by today’s report by the Care Quality Commission. Some 3,200 care services were rated as “requires improvement”, with more than 340 rated as “inadequate”. That means that some 92,000 vulnerable people are...

Grenfell Rehousing: Points of Order (5 Jul 2017)

Barbara Keeley: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. On Monday evening, the Secretary of State for Health published a written ministerial statement suggesting that local authority access to the £2 billion funding for social care announced in the spring Budget will now be dependent on performance against targets for delayed transfer of care, meaning that some councils could lose funding which they have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (4 Jul 2017)

Barbara Keeley: Today is the sixth anniversary of the publication of the Dilnot commission’s report on the funding of social care. In those six years, Ministers have legislated for a cap and a floor on care costs, and then abandoned those measures. They brought forward disastrous proposals in their manifesto for what became known as the “dementia tax”, and they appear to have abandoned...

Petition - Fairer Funding Formula for School Pupils in Macclesfield Constituency and the Cheshire East Local Authority Area: Contaminated Blood (25 Apr 2017)

Barbara Keeley: I thank you on behalf of my constituent, Madam Deputy Speaker. I want to speak further, briefly, about that case. The Minister has made certain assertions and I want to give the House some more information. The main part of the debate has been about the excellent revelations from my right hon. Friend the Member for Leigh (Andy Burnham), but we have also referred briefly to the situation of...

Petition - Fairer Funding Formula for School Pupils in Macclesfield Constituency and the Cheshire East Local Authority Area: Contaminated Blood (25 Apr 2017)

Barbara Keeley: I was not going to intervene, but the hon. Member for Worthing West (Sir Peter Bottomley) made the point that generous treatment is needed. The victims of this NHS scandal are not receiving generous treatment. I have a constituent who was infected during the scandal as a child at the Royal Manchester children’s hospital. When he discovered that his cirrhosis, if it remained untreated,...

Petition - Fairer Funding Formula for School Pupils in Macclesfield Constituency and the Cheshire East Local Authority Area: Contaminated Blood (25 Apr 2017)

Barbara Keeley: My right hon. Friend is making an incredibly powerful case in his final speech in this place. The shadow Health team discussed this matter earlier and entirely support his call.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Mental Health Treatment (21 Mar 2017)

Barbara Keeley: Recent figures show that 18 mental health patients were placed more than 185 miles away from their home for treatment, including five from the northern region—Jess is one such example. Their families will have to travel the equivalent of Manchester to London, or further, to visit them. We have also learned that £800 million was taken out of CCG budgets, which could be funding...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Social Care: Unmet Needs (21 Mar 2017)

Barbara Keeley: But 1.2 million older people are living with unmet care needs. The £1 billion that was announced in the Budget for this year is not enough to prop up the failing care sector, when many councils are suffering contracts being handed back. Given that 1 million people over the age of 65 do not have adult children, will the Minister explain how all those people living with unmet care needs...

Health Committee (16 Mar 2017)

Barbara Keeley: Labour welcomes the recommendations in the report, and I join the hon. Lady in thanking Select Committee members and staff for their work. The Committee visited the award-winning Salford mental health liaison team, which offers 24/7 mental health support at Salford Royal hospital and has been able to halve the admission rates for people with mental health problems. The Royal College of...

Health and Social Care Budgets — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (14 Mar 2017)

Barbara Keeley: I agree with the hon. Member for Portsmouth South (Mrs Drummond). There is a real dearth now and respite care for carers has got lost. With £120 million, 40,000 carers could be helped with a respite care break. The Minister should look at that.

Health and Social Care Budgets — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (14 Mar 2017)

Barbara Keeley: It is a pleasure to serve with you in the Chair, Mr Bailey. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Hackney South and Shoreditch (Meg Hillier) on securing the debate and the excellent way in which she opened it. Last week, in the spring Budget statement, the Chancellor announced that the Government would provide £2 billion in funding for social care over the next three years. We...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (9 Mar 2017)

Barbara Keeley: Surely the key point is that we are almost abandoning prevention. Some 1.2 million older people live every single day with unmet care needs. There is no prevention when a frail older person who needs care does not get it, and this money goes nowhere to helping with that.
