The Long-term Sustainability of the NHS and Adult Social Care - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (26 Apr 2018)

Lord Colwyn: My Lords, I declare an interest as a retired dental surgeon and a fellow of the British Dental Association. I am sorry I was not on this committee. It was well organised and the noble Lord, Lord Patel, deserves our congratulations. He assured me that it was his hope that the debate would provide an opportunity for Members to speak about the broader issues facing the health and social care...

Dental Care - Question (1 Feb 2018)

Lord Colwyn: My Lords, dental care would be improved by the addition of fluoride to the water supply. This has been agreed by my noble friend and his department, but not all water authorities are prepared to take this step. In the last decade, dentists’ average earnings have gone down by a third in real terms. This is of great concern to dentists, who do not receive any government funding and have...

Health: Atrial Fibrillation and Stroke - Question (12 Dec 2017)

Lord Colwyn: My Lords, it is quite clear that many people do not receive the anti-coagulants that they need, and my noble friend has reminded us of the figures relating to those suffering from this problem. Since 2012, four novel oral anti-coagulants—NOACs—have been recommended by NICE as both clinically and cost effective for the prevention of stroke in patients with AF. Their use is...

Children: Oral Health - Question (4 Dec 2017)

Lord Colwyn: My Lords, I am delighted that my noble friend mentioned the dental contract because the current target-driven contract was introduced in 2006. The Government committed to reforming it in their 2010 manifesto, but progress has been very slow. The latest reports speak of a national rollout no earlier than 2021. We urgently need a new contract that rewards prevention. Does my noble friend not...

Children: Oral Health - Question (4 Dec 2017)

Lord Colwyn: My Lords, I forgot to declare my interest, so I apologise.

NHS: Wound Care - Question for Short Debate (22 Nov 2017)

Lord Colwyn: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Wheeler, on her explanation of the follow-up questions asked by the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, on the development of a strategy for standards of wound care in the NHS. If noble Lords will permit, I shall establish the context in which wound care sits within the pressures faced by health services. I do not have any financial interests to declare....

Health and Social Care - Motion to Take Note (24 Nov 2016)

Lord Colwyn: My Lords, I am sure noble Lords will be grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay, for giving the House another opportunity to examine the reaction to the result of the referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU, particularly with regard to the health and social care workforce. I am looking forward to hearing from noble Lords, some of whom contributed to the debate introduced by the...

Children: Oral Health - Question (31 Oct 2016)

Lord Colwyn: My Lords, although dental decay can easily be prevented by reducing sugar consumption, regular brushing and adequate exposure to fluoride, it has been shown to be the number one reason why children aged five to nine are admitted to hospital. It is painful, can be dangerous and wastes millions of pounds of NHS resources. When will the Government reverse those statistics and facilitate the...

Drug-Resistant Infections - Motion to Take Note (15 Sep 2016)

Lord Colwyn: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend Lord Lansley on securing this debate on what is one of the greatest health and economic challenges of our age. Antimicrobial resistance—AMR—which is causing the rise in drug-resistant infections, is killing around 700,000 people worldwide. In the UK alone, it is resulting in 3,000 deaths a year, with an estimated cost to the NHS in excess...

NHS: Health and Social Care Act 2012 - Motion to Take Note (8 Sep 2016)

Lord Colwyn: My Lords, I declare my interest as a retired dental surgeon and a fellow of the British Dental Association. I thank the noble Viscount, Lord Hanworth, for securing this debate. Although I shall need to read his speech in Hansard to make full sense of it, he gives me time to make a brief intervention to remind noble Lords of the importance to the long-term sustainability of the NHS of...

Dental Health: Children - Question (7 Jun 2016)

Lord Colwyn: My Lords, my noble friend talks about the dental contract. Will he tell us when the Government will complete the long-standing delay on dental contract reform? Will they ensure the new contact works for both dentists and patients?

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (19 May 2016)

Lord Colwyn: My Lords, I declare my interest as a retired dental surgeon and a fellow of the British Dental Association. I am sure that noble Lords will not be surprised to hear that in my remarks I am keen to turn the attention of the House towards the important but too often overlooked field of dentistry and oral health. As noble Lords will probably realise, the noble Baroness, Lady Benjamin, virtually...

European Union Subsidiarity Assessment: Electoral Law of the European Union — Motion to Resolve (4 Feb 2016)

Lord Colwyn: The question is that the second Motion on the Order Paper in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Kennedy of The Shaws, be agreed to. As many as are of that opinion will say content.

European Union Subsidiarity Assessment: Electoral Law of the European Union — Motion to Resolve (4 Feb 2016)

Lord Colwyn: The contents have it. Motion agreed.

Health: Cancer — Question for Short Debate (20 Jan 2016)

Lord Colwyn: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Walmsley, on securing time for this debate. Her excellent speech enables me to bring the dental profession to your Lordships’ attention—again. A speaking slot of four minutes is always very restrictive but I am pleased to be able to make reference to dental professionals, most of whom play an important role in the detection,...

National Health Service — Motion to Take Note (14 Jan 2016)

Lord Colwyn: My Lords, I declare my interest as a now fully retired dental surgeon with over 40 years’ experience and a fellow of the British Dental Association. All too often when we speak about our health system, oral health is conspicuously absent from the debate, and this morning is no exception so far. Both the Government and Opposition seem united in seeing a more integrated approach to...

Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 (Temporary Class Drug) (No. 3) Order 2015 — Motion to Approve (22 Dec 2015)

Lord Colwyn: My Lords, my remarks will be brief. I ask my noble friend, who has responsibility for steering the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 (Temporary Class Drug) (No. 3) Order 2015 through your Lordships’ House, whether the Government have kept to their undertaking to ensure that the Psychoactive Substances Bill does not infringe the rights of UK herbal practitioners to supply unlicensed herbal...

National Stroke Strategy — Question for Short Debate (18 Nov 2015)

Lord Colwyn: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Wheeler, for raising this important issue. I have read the report of her debate just over a year ago when she drew our attention to the incidence of stroke in children, and I reread her contribution to the debate on atrial fibrillation on 4 November, which set the scene for our debate today. I congratulate the noble Baroness on the...
