Sexual Health (28 Nov 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, earlier this year, some area child protection committees attempted to issue protocols, which the Government are now considering, that young people under 18 should have their health advice to some extent discussed with other professionals, and enquiries made to the police. Can the Minister assure us that true confidentiality will be maintained in matters of sexual health and young people?

Prisoners: Use of Restraint (8 Nov 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they will review the contracts of those prisons and secure training centres that did not allow access to the Home Office team investigating the use of restraint on teenage prisoners.

Prisoners: Use of Restraint (8 Nov 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her reply. I take it, therefore, that she regards last week's article in the Guardian as mistaken and wrong. Further, does she think that there is an argument for further investigation of the use of various kinds of restraint techniques, particularly on young people who are in the care of the state in our secure training centres?

Palliative Care (8 Nov 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, given that the Government have made a commitment to increase funding, as well as listening to the consultation, will they look at the lack of funding, particularly for older people who are dying of conditions other than cancer? Whatever comes out in the consultation, that is a serious inequality in care provision.

Tobacco Control (3 Nov 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, given that we all agree that banning the advertising of tobacco would be a very good thing, what will the noble Baroness and the UK, as holder of the presidency, do to ensure that the eight states in the EU that are not complying ban advertising?

NHS Redress Bill [HL] (2 Nov 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, in many ways we must all welcome the NHS Redress Bill. I need to declare a few interests: I was formerly—a long time ago—chair of the Patients Association; I have been a member of the GMC and I have chaired an NHS trust, so I have dealt with some of those issues over a long period of time. Indeed, going back nearly 20 years, AvMA—Action against Medical Accidents, or the...

Medical Students: Fees (27 Oct 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: asked Her Majesty's Government: What plans they have to assist graduate students in medical schools who have difficulty in paying their fees which, unlike those of undergraduates, cannot be deferred until they enter employment.

Medical Students: Fees (27 Oct 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his reply. Is he aware that the medical students committee of the BMA and the Council of Heads of Medical Schools are very worried about the draft student support regulations, which are due to come out in 2006? They think that the regulations will not currently cover all the students who are graduates of some other programme, but now entering medical school....

Smoking in the Workplace (20 Oct 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they will take steps to ban all smoking in the workplace in view of the recently published paper in the British Medical Journal on the subject.

Smoking in the Workplace (20 Oct 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his reply. Is he fully aware of the evidence that came out of the BMJ online last Monday and out of Tobacco Control that as a result of the legislation in the Irish Republic the reduction in the levels of cotinine in saliva is very considerable, far greater than in Northern Ireland? Is he not aware that the Department of Health has been arguing firmly for...

Assisted Dying for the Terminally Ill Bill: Select Committee Report (10 Oct 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, it is impossible to make a proper winding-up speech after such a long debate with such excellent speeches. They have been absolutely in the tradition of this House, where passions have been running high but courtesy has nevertheless largely been shown, and even some humour. I, too, congratulate the noble and learned Lord, Lord Mackay of Clashfern, and his committee on their...

NHS: Specialised Services (11 Jul 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I, too, thank the noble Earl, Lord Howe, for securing the debate. Like him I am sad to see so few speakers listed on a matter of considerable concern to all of us with a love for, and knowledge of, the National Health Service. Specialised health services have always been difficult to organise in this and other countries. Like the noble Baroness, Lady Masham, I have to say that in my...

Life-long Learning (EUC Report) (7 Jul 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, it is with the greatest pleasure that I pay tribute to the noble Lord, Lord Kinnock, and to congratulate him on his excellent maiden speech—one being made, as he told us, some 35 years on from his original maiden speech in another place. We all know that the noble Lord is a power in the land. He is now steering the British Council, on which I serve as a member, with consummate...

Palliative Care (7 Jul 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I, too, thank the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay of Llandaff, and congratulate her on initiating this debate. I also congratulate the noble and learned Lord, Lord Lyell of Markyate, on his maiden speech. I have admired him from afar for many years. I hope that we shall hear him on many occasions, including on this subject, about which he is so knowledgeable. Like everyone who has...

NHS: Suspensions (5 Jul 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, NHS trusts are supposed to have in place a no-blame reporting system for errors but apparently it is not yet fully embedded. Does the Minister agree that, if fully embedded, that system would help to deal with some cases of unfair victimisation and suspension of doctors and, more importantly, with some of the errors that emerge in medical practice? How far is it from being fully...

Dental Services (21 Jun 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I too would like to congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Gardner of Parkes, on raising this Question, which seems to a relatively new Member of this House to be one that we debate fairly frequently. We have heard from the noble Baroness just how frustrating it is to get an NHS dentist and we know that a new system is being piloted and is working well in some places, as the noble...

Deaths in Custody (9 Jun 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I am sure that I speak for all Members of your Lordships' House when I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Ramsbotham, on a superb maiden speech. It was moving, profound and impressive and I hope that much of what he said will be taken up by the Government and that the Minister will respond to it. The noble Lord, Lord Ramsbotham, had an immensely distinguished military career and made...

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (23 Mar 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, would the Minister now agree that sexually transmitted infections of new kinds now seem to be on the increase? The example I give is one that I find really difficult to pronounce—that is, Mycoplasma genitalium, which has been called the "new chlamydia". Will the Government commission research on whether we need screening for other sexually transmitted infections beyond what we are...

Alzheimer's Disease: NICE Guidance (10 Mar 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, how will individual patients be involved in making decisions about the use of the drugs? NICE has a patients' panel. To what extent will it be involved, especially through patients who have already found the drugs helpful and those who believe that they might?

Adult Social Care (7 Mar 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, will the Minister acknowledge that the engagement of older people in social activity reduces the likelihood of their institutionalisation by almost 50 per cent? Will he therefore ensure that the New Vision for Adult Social Care emphasises help with social engagement and encourages funding both for the statutory and voluntary sectors, as the right reverend Prelate has already...
