Mental Health Bill [HL] (10 Jan 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: I, too, support in principle the amendments of the noble Baroness, Lady Wilkins, and the noble Lord, Lord Williamson. Like the noble Earl, Lord Howe, I am delighted that for a few minutes we have been taken away from issues of compulsion to talk about what mental health services should be like and, indeed, what entitlements patients should have. My noble friend Lord Carlile was right to say...

Mental Health Bill [HL] (8 Jan 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: I, too, welcome back the noble Lord, Lord Hunt of Kings Heath. He and I, like several others in this House, go back a long way. Like my noble friend Lord Carlile, I very much hope that he will not disappoint on this occasion. He does not usually. I should declare some interests. I am an honorary fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, which has been much quoted this afternoon. I was...

Children: Obesity (19 Dec 2006)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, we all welcome the report. I agree with my noble friend that this is partly an environmental issue, but what will be done to strengthen the public health function, given that many public health doctors and professionals are feeling somewhat depressed about their future at the moment, particularly those who work with children and, as the noble Baroness said, with teenagers and young...

NHS: VAT Recovery (14 Dec 2006)

Baroness Neuberger: asked Her Majesty's Government: Why National Health Service trusts can recover VAT paid to employment agencies for nurses but not for other health professionals.

NHS: VAT Recovery (14 Dec 2006)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I am deeply grateful to the Minister for his reply and I very much hope that the review will make some sense of what seems a rather extraordinary situation. However, is he surprised that the direction to NHS trusts on this matter was given without any consultation? Furthermore, given that the review is taking place, can he assure this House that trusts will not be forced to make...

NHS (7 Dec 2006)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I, too, thank the noble Lord, Lord Colwyn, for introducing the debate today. Like many other noble Lords in the Chamber, I would like to address an enormous number of issues, but I will reduce my remarks to make my speech shorter in a very long debate. People will be very pleased to hear that. I have to declare some interests. I am an honorary fellow of the Royal College of...

Health: Specialist Nurses (29 Nov 2006)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, we all accept that local NHS organisations have to make decisions about how resources are allocated. Will not the Government nevertheless give a lead—particularly given that Brian Jarman's research shows that specialist Parkinson's nurses are cost-neutral to health services—so that we can ensure that the 11 quality requirements of the National Service Framework for Long-Term...

NHS: Clostridium Difficile (7 Nov 2006)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, we know that hand-washing and other hygiene measures are probably the most effective intervention we can make at the moment for Clostridium difficile. What are the Government doing, particularly NHS Estates, about guidance for ward and hospital design, given that doctors and nurses are saying that getting to basins to wash properly is proving remarkably difficult?

NHS Redress Bill [HL] (6 Nov 2006)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, like the noble Earl, Lord Howe, we have come to the conclusion that having sent the Bill back to another place on two occasions, and it having been returned, we probably now have to rest our case. When we saw Amendment No. 16A, published on Thursday, we believed that a major concession had been made, allowing in regulations a definition of the person investigating the facts to be in...

NHS: Hospital Food (6 Nov 2006)

Baroness Neuberger: asked Her Majesty's Government: What plans they have to improve standards in hospital food.

NHS: Hospital Food (6 Nov 2006)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his reply. I thank him particularly for making reference to the patient environment action teams. They were given a target of establishing ward housekeepers in 50 per cent of NHS hospitals by 2004, which was met. Given that success, why have the Government stopped at 50 per cent and when do they expect to introduce ward housekeepers in the remaining 50 per...

NHS: Community Hospitals and Maternity Units (30 Oct 2006)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I too would like to thank the noble Baroness, Lady Cumberlege, for asking this Question and in this short speech I want to address maternity services. Women of my generation believed that the hugely successful campaigns for choice in childbirth had changed things. The Good Birth Guide generation would be able to give birth where and how they wished. Some wanted to give birth in warm...

NHS Redress Bill [HL] (25 Oct 2006)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I thank the Minister for the things he has said that have given us a degree of comfort. I speak on this amendment again, in sadness more than anger. This has been a long-running saga, as the Minister indicated, and I pay tribute to him for accepting that some level of independent oversight of the NHS redress scheme is necessary. He stated in terms back in February that the...

NHS: Hospital Chaplaincy (23 Oct 2006)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, does the Minister accept that, if there are cuts to chaplaincy services, there may be some difficulty meeting the guidelines set out, for example, in the Liverpool Care Pathway and the end-of-life care strategy that the cancer tsar, Professor Mike Richards, is preparing? Does he further accept that the Government have said that NHS organisations should make provision for those...

Influenza Vaccine (11 Oct 2006)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, why, every year at this time, do we seem to have a Question or two or three on this subject? Why does there seem to be, for GPs in their practices, always a shortage at this time of year? This is not the first time that we have heard that there has been private supply available when some NHS practices have not had it. Perhaps the Minister can explain why we cannot get vaccines to...

Mental Health: Patient Safety (12 Jul 2006)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, will the Government institute a robust, transparent and easily accessible reporting system for incidents of sexual assault and harassment in mental health units in general, and for women in particular? If that is to be the case, when will it occur?

Influenza Pandemic (12 Jul 2006)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, without claiming access to a higher authority, being merely a rabbi and not a bishop, perhaps I may ask the Minister to consider whether we need to get some of the clergy across the faiths to meet now with others who are to be designated as key workers. However, I appreciate that the decision has not finally been made. There may be deaths, but more than that there may be...

Medical Act 1983 (Amendment) and Miscellaneous Amendments Order 2006 (6 Jul 2006)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, before I begin I should declare several interests. I am a former member of the General Medical Council, of its fitness to practise committee at various stages, and of its education committee. I am also an honorary fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and the Royal College of General Practitioners, so I could be said to have an interest in some of this. Broadly, this order seems...

Paediatric Medicines (3 Jul 2006)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I, too, thank my noble friend Lady Thomas for chairing the inquiry, and our remarkable Clerk, Gordon Baker, for his superb drafting of the report. It is undoubtedly worth saying how wide the support has been generally for the regulation. Broadly speaking, the medical profession and others have really wanted it, as the noble Lord, Lord Turnberg, has made clear. As we have also heard,...

Criminal Justice: Women (29 Jun 2006)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I assure the noble Baroness that I was quoting Pauline Campbell; I was not saying it myself. That was her view after the death of her daughter.
