Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Bill (10 Nov 2003)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I, too, have an amendment in this group; it is Amendment No. 323A. I am grateful to the Minister for introducing the code and putting it on the face of the Bill. He will remember that my solution was somewhat different from that suggested by the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones. He suggested the Secretary of State and I suggest the Patient Information Advisory Group, which was set up...

Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Bill (10 Nov 2003)

Baroness Cumberlege: moved Amendment No. 373A: Before Clause 118, insert the following new clause— "REVIEW OF DELIVERY, SCRUTINY AND ACCOUNTABILITY ARRANGEMENTS The Secretary of State must order a review, within 18 months of the commencement of this Act, of the delivery, scrutiny and accountability arrangements of the Department of Health, and public bodies including executive and non-executive non-departmental...

Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Bill (10 Nov 2003)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, perhaps I may first dispel possible confusion about there being two amendments in my name, one of which has been withdrawn. They were grouped together. I shall move Amendment No. 373A, to which I shall speak, and withdraw Amendment No. 411. I withdraw it because it was pointed out to me that Amendment No. 411 was a wrecking amendment. I do not wish to wreck the remains of the Bill...

Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Bill (10 Nov 2003)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I thank my noble friend Lord Howe, the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, and the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay, for supporting the amendment. Noble Lords will remember that when we discussed this issue in Committee only one noble Lord, besides the Minister, rejected the concept. I like the idea of the regulator being the twinkle in the eye. I am sure that that will attract many people...

Sudden Oak Death Virus (6 Jan 2004)

Baroness Cumberlege: asked Her Majesty's Government: What is their strategy to prevent the import of species which are known to carry sudden oak death fungus.

Sudden Oak Death Virus (6 Jan 2004)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I should like to thank the Minister for that reply. I understand what he is telling us about destroying plants that already have the disease or fungus. However, does he agree that, if the fungus gets hold and proves as devastating as Dutch elm disease, this Government will never be forgiven? Will the Minister please take action and ban imports immediately, as other European...

Planning and Compulsory Purchase Bill (6 Jan 2004)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I started my career at 22, when I was elected to the Chailey rural district council. My village voted for me not because I had any political skills or experience but because my father was the local doctor and very popular. One of his patients even told me, "You're a bit young, dear, but I'll vote for you because you've got the doctor's eyes". I have to say that party politics were...

Midwives (22 Apr 2004)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, is the Minister aware that at birth centres and midwife-led units there are waiting lists for midwives who want to work there because they can give a quality of care that they cannot give elsewhere? As a result, there are fewer interventions and there is less anguish for mothers and less morbidity for babies. Is the Minister further aware that those units are under threat of closure...

Healthy Start Scheme (12 Jul 2004)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I appreciate that there will be a pilot scheme and that one has to see the results of that, but there has been a lot of concern that this scheme is open to fraud. Can the Minister say what measures are being taken to prevent that? Further, there is concern that children who need this formula milk will be denied it at a time when they are developing and when it is particularly...

Hospital-acquired Infections (15 Jul 2004)

Baroness Cumberlege: asked Her Majesty's Government: What progress they are making in reducing hospital-acquired infections.

Hospital-acquired Infections (15 Jul 2004)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that reply. However, I think that the Government have been extraordinarily complacent on this issue. Is it not true that very little progress has been made? In fact, in its report, the National Audit Office says that over the past three years the situation has got worse. If we had a rail crash, killing 100 people, there would be a massive inquiry and heads...

Human Tissue Bill (22 Jul 2004)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I should like to start by declaring two interests: first, I chair St George's Hospital Medical School and, secondly, I am a trustee of Cancer Research UK. I should also like to join those of your Lordships who joined up to the lay brigade. I seek some advice from the Minister. It used to be a House convention that to be allowed to contribute to other parts of a Bill one had to speak...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Public Health: Children (7 Dec 2004)

Written Answers — House of Lords: Asian Tsunami (21 Feb 2005)

Baroness Cumberlege: asked Her Majesty's Government: Further to the Written Answer by the Lord Bach on 2 February (WA 46), why they have not sent any unit from the Royal Engineers to Sri Lanka to aid the re-building of infrastructure damaged by the tsunami.

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

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, in the past, medicine was simple, relatively ineffective and safe. Today it is very complicated, effective and potentially dangerous. We have moved from the time when the family doctor, with great kindness, prepared us for the inevitable. Today, for many, the attitude is quite simply negligent. Curing what was thought to be incurable, successfully operating on the inoperable and...
