Health: Midwives — Question (10 Jun 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper. In doing so, I declare the interests that are on the Lords’ register and, in this instance, the unremunerative position as patron of Independent Midwives UK.

Health: Midwives — Question (10 Jun 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for that Answer. On 26 October, when the European directive comes into force, it will preclude around 170 independent midwives from practising, and this at a time when we have a burgeoning baby boom. Many of these midwives actually work within the NHS. Is my noble friend aware that many of these independent midwives are seeking a solution but they require...

Care Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (4 Jun 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: Perhaps I may comment on what my noble friend has said in reply to the debate. I understand that under secondary legislation he is considering putting a registered nurse on the board. Some assurance on that would be very helpful. In my experience working with clinical commissioning groups, when they were appointed and there had to be a nurse on the board, and the last person to be appointed...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill — Second Reading (3 Jun 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I refer noble Lords to my interests as set out in the Register of Lords’ Interests. Many erudite Members have already spoken in the debate and I know that many more will contribute later on today and tomorrow. They will discuss what is right and what is wrong with this Bill. I start from the premise that all people have a contribution to make to society, each in their different...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Health: Midwives (3 Jun 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they will take to enable self-employed midwives who are not part of corporate bodies to access affordable professional indemnity insurance. To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many independent midwives have obtained professional indemnity insurance from commercial insurers since 1 January by forming corporate bodies. To ask Her Majesty’s...

National Health Service (Procurement, Patient Choice and Competition) (No. 2) Regulations 2013 — Motion to Annul (24 Apr 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I start by declaring an interest. My interests are in the Lords' Register, but I particularly want to declare the two companies which I control, run and support. They do not provide treatment and care to the NHS, but they do provide training opportunities to NHS staff. I am also involved with a number of charities and voluntary organisations. I think that the Health and Social Care...

National Health Service (Procurement, Patient Choice and Competition) (No. 2) Regulations 2013 — Motion to Annul (24 Apr 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, we could have a whole debate on profit. Every person who sells their talents and does work has to profit. You cannot live without a profit unless you are receiving social care. Profit, of course, funds all our pensions, and a whole lot of other things-but I do not want to go into all that, because I think it is irrelevant to this debate. I think that we should just look at what the...

National Health Service (Procurement, Patient Choice and Competition) (No. 2) Regulations 2013 — Motion to Annul (24 Apr 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, of course I accept that. We accept that in the NHS, do we not? You have only to look at the recent inquiries to know that the NHS is not perfect. What I am trying to put over is that by using a wider range of providers you can improve services for the NHS, but of course you need regulation and somebody ensuring that the quality is high. It is not perfect in all cases-of course I...

Health: Midwives — Question (25 Feb 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: To ask Her Majesty's Government, in the light of the continuing increase in births, what is their response to the recent report by the Royal College of Midwives, which states that there is a shortage of around 5,000 midwives.

Health: Midwives — Question (25 Feb 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper. In so doing, I declare an interest as a fellow and vice-president of the Royal College of Midwives. My other interests are in the Lords register.

Health: Midwives — Question (25 Feb 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for that very encouraging reply. I suspect that every single Member of your Lordships' House has been touched by a midwife. They are a remarkable and very committed profession. Is my noble friend aware that although there is what the Royal College of Midwives describes as a tipping point in the increase in the number of midwives attending women in labour, the...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Medicines Act 1968 (11 Feb 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to publish the terms of reference of the review of the application of the Medicines Act 1968, to be conducted by Ken Jarold CBE.

NHS Bodies and Local Authorities (Partnership Arrangements, Care Trusts, Public Health and Local Healthwatch) Regulations 2012: Motion to Regret (5 Feb 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I suspect that my noble friend has got the message now that we are not totally enamoured of these regulations. I think back to when we had the White Paper, which was published in July 2010. I remember, as my noble friend Lady Jolly has said, how excited I was then by the fact that in local Healthwatch we were to have an organisation that really would be the collective voice of...

Written Answers — House of Lords: NHS: Procurement (21 Jan 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to ensure greater transparency in the procurement of NHS consumables; and whether that includes a requirement for each NHS Trust to publish the prices it pays for products.

Written Answers — House of Lords: NHS: GP Accreditation (17 Dec 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: To ask Her Majesty's Government what NHS bodies will be responsible from April 2013 for the accreditation and re-accreditation of general practitioners with a special interest. To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the current framework for the accreditation and re-accreditation of general practitioners with a special interest; and whether they plan to renew that...

NHS Commissioning Board: Mandate — Statement (13 Nov 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords-

NHS Commissioning Board: Mandate — Statement (13 Nov 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I, too, congratulate the Government on the mandate. When we were debating the Bill, I requested that the mandate should be short, precise and well-focused, and it is all of those things. I particularly welcome the focus on the importance given to improving standards in maternity services. The mother's experience and the start of life are very important and have a huge impact on the...
