Health: Obesity — Question (12 Nov 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for that full Answer. Does he agree that one of the successes in primary care has been the introduction of the Quality and Outcomes Framework, which incentivises GPs? Unfortunately, one of the incentives is to keep a register of obese patients-nothing else, just a register. In fact, that incentivises them to keep people fat. Does my noble friend also agree...

NHS: Women Doctors — Question (6 Nov 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I declare an interest, and my interests are in the register.

National Health Service (Clinical Commissioning Groups) Regulations 2012 — Motion of Regret (16 Oct 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I declare an interest, which is in the Register of Lords' Interests. I want briefly to address two points.

Older People: Health and Social Care — Question (18 Jun 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, one of the most important levers for change in the Health and Social Care Act is the mandate that has been agreed between the Secretary of State and the NHS Commissioning Board. Does my noble friend consider that one could include some of the principles that are established in this very good report within that mandate?

Health: Local Healthwatch Organisations — Question (11 Jun 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that in the light of the comparative studies that have been made between different health systems in developing countries, it is very disappointing that the National Health Service comes last out of seven when it comes to patient and public involvement? It does well on other factors but not on this one. Does my noble friend agree that although taxpayers'...

Health and Social Care Bill: Third Reading (19 Mar 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: As a fellow of the Royal College of Nursing and the Royal College of Midwives, I very much regret that I have been unable to take part in the previous debates initiated by the noble Baroness, Lady Emerton. I regret that for many reasons, not least because I had the privilege of introducing the noble Baroness into your Lordships' House, and what a good thing that was. The noble Baroness is a...

Health and Social Care Bill: Third Reading (19 Mar 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I have no intention of testing the opinion of the House this evening. We have negotiated long and hard with my noble friends Lady Northover and Lord Howe. It has been a very interesting experience. Those noble Lords who have supported me by putting their names to my amendments have tutored me well in the art of negotiation. It has occurred to me that clearly you can negotiate only...

Health and Social Care Bill: Third Reading (19 Mar 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, Amendment 56 is simpler than the amendment I tabled on Report but it is necessary because I need some undertakings. I know that other noble Lords also seek those. The amendment concerns Public Health England. Both amendments found favour across the House in the previous debate, as I hope Amendment 14 will in this one. I thank noble Lords who have put their names to the amendment. I...

Health and Social Care Bill: Report (6th Day) (8 Mar 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I have three amendments in this group. My Amendment 232, which is supported by my noble friend Lady Jolly, limits the role of the local authority vis-à-vis local healthwatch to just "pay and rations plus": that is to say, it makes sure that local healthwatch operates economically and efficiently, and develops work plans and delivers them, but does not interfere with what is in...

Health and Social Care Bill: Report (6th Day) (8 Mar 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I have several amendments in this group and the next one. There are synergies between the two groups, so I shall speak briefly introducing both groups and go on to those in this group. I have tried hard throughout our debates to ensure that we have a more robust accountability framework. As I see it, the framework is in three parts. First, there is the local authority. Secondly,...
