Health and Social Care Bill (15 Mar 2001)

Baroness Cumberlege: I rise to support my noble friend Lord Howe. I am concerned that the Secretary of State is seeking powers directly to reward staff working within a particular trust, or to improve facilities.

In my view, that is...

Health and Social Care Bill (15 Mar 2001)

Baroness Cumberlege: Before the Minister sits down perhaps I may ask for clarification. I clearly understand the issue where we have a strong economy and we are able to invest more in public services. But there is a feeling, when we look across the Atlantic to what is happening in America, at the stock market and at all the other signs, that we are at the beginning of another recession. If the situation arises...

Health and Social Care Bill (15 Mar 2001)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I rise to support my noble friend. This is the first time I have taken part in debate on the Bill because I was not able to attend Second Reading.

As I have the generosity of the House and am able to do that, I start by declaring interests. I am a non-executive director...

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...

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...

National Health Service Plan (27 Jul 2000)

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

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...

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?
