Older People: Pain — Question (15 Dec 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his reply. Given that estimates by Help the Aged and others suggest that 5 million older people in the population—possibly including some of us—are experiencing chronic and severe pain, and given that ageist attitudes predominate, as expressed by such statements as, "What do you expect at your age?", will the Minister assure us that the Government plan...

Health: Donor Organs (EUC Report) (14 Nov 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, in declaring an interest I start by apologising to your Lordships' House. There are an awful lot of Neubergers and Newbergers about, and we are all related. My brother-in-law James is about to become the next head of UK Transplant, so it is a real interest of mine. I also declare an interest as an honorary fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and the Royal College of General...

Mental Health: Children and Young People (29 Oct 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, given that the NHS now has responsibility for healthcare in prisons, can the Minister tell the House the extent to which age-appropriate services are provided for children and young people in secure training centres and young offender institutions? There are worrying rumours of services being deeply inappropriate for these very distressed young people.

Prisons (26 Jun 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I, too, pay tribute to the noble Lord, Lord Ramsbotham, for instigating this debate. I declare an interest as an adviser to the trustees of the Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health. In these few minutes I shall concentrate on the area I know best in the prisons debate; namely, mental health issues in prisons. I suggest that what we can observe going on in the recognition and treatment...

Health and Social Care Bill (25 Mar 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I, too, thank the Minister for clearly laying-out of the territory of the Bill. I also thank all organisations and individuals who have sent briefings and advice in advance of this debate, in which the huge number of us who clearly wish to speak is evidence of the great concern that this legislation is causing in this House. Many of us here have considerable experience in both the...

Medical Careers: Tooke Report (13 Mar 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I, too, congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Patel, on securing this debate; somewhat belatedly due to the Northern Rock disaster. Anyway, we have it now. I am delighted to be speaking from these Benches in this debate, as I have taken a keen interest in these issues since the disasters of last year. I declare an interest as a former lay member of the GMC, including briefly of its...

Alcohol: Misuse (26 Feb 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: asked Her Majesty's Government: In light of the British Medical Association's report Alcohol Misuse: Tackling the UK Epidemic, what plans they have for tackling alcohol misuse.

Alcohol: Misuse (26 Feb 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her reply. However, given that all the evidence shows that both availability and price of alcohol are the key factors in binge drinking, this is not so much a matter for doctors as for government. Will the Government now consider introducing new laws, as recommended by that report, to regulate promotional activities on alcohol and ensure that both licensed...

Mental Health: Spirituality (26 Feb 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, given the agreement around the House that spirituality plays a major role in the mental illness of some people in some of our hospitals and in our communities, can the Minister tell us what the Government will do to ensure that there is further training in spirituality of all faiths for those working in mental health? That training should include chaplains working in mental health.

Mental Health: Community Orders (15 Jan 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: asked Her Majesty's Government: In light of the Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health report, The Community Order and the Mental Health Treatment Requirement, what plans they have for monitoring and improving the number of mental health treatment requirements issued with community orders.

Mental Health: Community Orders (15 Jan 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her reply but, given that our prisons appear to be stuffed full of people with mental health problems, can she tell us what, in the very short term before the review comes out, the Government are planning to do to discourage the use of prison in favour of some kind of community order for people with mental health problems? Secondly, is she taking seriously...

Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill [HL] (3 Dec 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: In principle, I support the amendment of the noble Earl, Lord Howe. This takes us back to other pieces of legislation that we have been debating in recent months in this House; for instance, under the Mental Health Bill we were also asking for a very clear set of principles. The noble Lord, Lord Harris of Pentregarth, has made a very strong case for the Human Fertilisation and Embryology...

Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill [HL] (3 Dec 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: The noble Lord, Lord Patel, made a very strong argument as to why the amendments of the noble Lord, Lord Alton, should not be accepted. I also served on the joint scrutiny committee and I am a former member of the Human Fertilisation Authority. I want to add one point to everything that has been said. When we talked about the nature of interspecies embryos, we said how difficult it was to...

Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill [HL] (19 Nov 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, like other noble Lords, I begin by declaring an interest as a former member of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority and its two predecessor organisations, as a former member of the Medical Research Council, and as an honorary fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and the Royal College of General Practitioners. As others have declared their religious interests, I...

Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Bill (22 Oct 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I simply want to support the noble Earl, Lord Howe, in what he has said about the monitoring arrangements. We are grateful for these amendments, but as they stand the intention is not absolutely clear, so some guidance from the Minister on what the Government mean would be enormously helpful. As we come to the end of this part of the Bill, I want to say how helpful it has been to...

Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Bill (22 Oct 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I agree absolutely with everything that the noble Earl has said. As noble Lords can hear, I am losing my voice, so I will not say much. I thank the Minister for the letter that she wrote to the noble Earl and me, in which she made it very clear that accompanying the regulators on visits would be an expectation. It is very important that that will be in the guidance and I am truly...

Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Bill (22 Oct 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I thank the Minister for this concession. It has given a considerable amount of relief to the noble Earl, Lord Howe, and me. There still seems to be the issue—certainly members of patients' forums are still writing about it—of a host also being a voluntary organisation that is a provider of services, which means there could be a conflict of interest. I hope that the Minister...

EU: Mental Health (EUC Report) (17 Oct 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I am delighted to take a small part in this debate and I pay tribute to the extraordinary chairmanship of my noble friend Lady Thomas of Walliswood, whose term as chair of EU Sub-Committee G is soon to be completed. I also pay tribute to the two Clerks to the committee: Barry Werner, its present Clerk, who saw the inquiry to its completion; and Gordon Baker, who set it up and...

Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Bill (15 Oct 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I have one addition to what the noble Earl has said. He and I are as one in thinking that the intention must be as he stated. On the issue of national representation, the Minister will know about National Voices and that we will have a national user body—or at least we hope we will in the near future. One thing that worries me is that, as the noble Earl outlined, there is no...

Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Bill (15 Oct 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I shall be brief because the noble Earl, Lord Howe, has said virtually everything on this great long string of amendments. I want to make two points. First, I very much support the noble Earl on Amendment No. 219ZAA, to which I put my name, because we have received a large number of representations on making very clear the full context of LINks and consultation. We need further...
