Caesarean Sections (14 Dec 1999)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that Answer. I am interested that he feels that there is an issue about the varying rates in different hospitals. First, is he aware of two hospitals which are joining to form a trust, one of which has a caesarean rate of 12 per cent and the other of 20 per cent, and that not far away another hospital has a rate of 29 per cent? Will the Minister take this...

Maternity Services (12 Jan 2000)

Baroness Cumberlege: rose to ask Her Majesty's Government what action they propose to take to improve maternity services. My Lords, in introducing this debate, I start by declaring an interest. I am a patron of the National Childbirth Trust and, I hope, a friend to the Royal Colleges involved in maternity services. This is a new millennium, a new year, a new beginning, new Labour, an appropriate time to discuss a...

National Health Service (2 Feb 2000)

Baroness Cumberlege: rose to call attention to the state of the National Health Service; and to move for Papers. My Lords, in opening the debate I should like, first, to declare an interest as an executive director of MJM Healthcare Solutions, a consultancy firm serving the National Health Service. Like so many of your Lordships, I am also connected with several charities and professional bodies associated with...

National Health Service (2 Feb 2000)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble and learned Lord. It was not of great interest. However, I hope that the following will be. I grew up in the National Health Service. My father joined it in 1948 and, since patients came to the house, in my home we literally had blood on the carpet. I know the Minister, if not from a medical family, has had a distinguished career in the National Health...

National Health Service (2 Feb 2000)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, during 10 years in your Lordships' House I have learnt that the way to win gratitude is to bring these five-hour debates to a brisk conclusion. I shall be brief, but I want to make one comment. I am not surprised and have been enormously encouraged by the intellectual range, expertise, innovative suggestions and practical experience that your Lordships have shared with us tonight....

NHS Trusts: Appointments (16 Mar 2000)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, does the Minister share the reported concern of the Commissioner for Public Appointments that political criteria should not take precedence over other experience? If the noble Lord shares that view, is it merely a coincidence that 546 Labour activists compared with 149 Conservatives have been appointed?

Maternity Units (15 May 2000)

Baroness Cumberlege: asked Her Majesty's Government: What is their policy towards the closure of maternity units.

Maternity Units (15 May 2000)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his thoughtful reply. In so doing, I should declare an interest as patron of the National Childbirth Trust. I am very pleased that the noble Lord understands the anxiety in this respect, but is he aware that some reports of the situation have not been published? One in particular, produced by the Royal Colleges, construes that 80 units may close. These are...

In the debate that took place with members of staff in the National Health Service, were maternity services rated...

National Health Service (26 Oct 2000)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, it gives me great pleasure to congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Harris of Haringey, on initiating this debate. As a former director of the Association of Community Health Councils, there can be nobody who knows the inside workings of CHCs better than he does, although it may be that the Minister knows them quite well because I believe that he started his career as a chief officer of...

Maternity Services (20 Dec 2000)

Baroness Cumberlege: asked Her Majesty's Government: What measures they are taking to improve the state of maternity services.

Maternity Services (20 Dec 2000)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for that Answer and I am encouraged that there is a work programme ahead. However, does he agree that one of the difficulties is that midwives are fed up, disillusioned and leaving the service because small maternity units are being closed and childbirth schemes are being discontinued? Will he and his colleagues intervene to prevent such closures and...
