International Women's Day — Motion to Take Note (1 Mar 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, I have been sitting her for I-do-not-know-how-many hours wondering whether it is easier to be first or last in these debates, and I have come to the conclusion that it is probably first-it has been quite nerve-racking waiting. I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Verma, for initiating this debate and, even more so, for her typically generous comments in opening it. We have heard from...

Health and Social Care Bill — Report (3rd Day)Relevant documents: 18th and 22nd Reports from the Constitution Committee (27 Feb 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, I, too, support the amendment. I want to focus particularly on integration in terms of what is provided by an acute hospital, compared with what is provided in the community. The noble Earl will know how many times I have spoken about how important and welcome it is that-as my noble friend Lady Pitkeathley said-the Bill includes social care and the patient pathway. However, the...

Health and Social Care Bill: Report (2nd Day) (13 Feb 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: I thank the noble Lord for giving way for the second time. I certainly support the amendment but I worry about the examples that he has used. The cases that he has put forward and the experience of the patients and families concerned are horrendous and outrageous, but what I found troubling and certainly did not recognise at all was when he went on to say that the coercion, rather than...

Health: Stroke Care — Question (13 Feb 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the consistency of care for stroke patients across England, and whether the progress made in London will inform the development of their policy on stroke care.

Health: Stroke Care — Question (13 Feb 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: I thank the Minister for his response. I remind him of the debate on stroke that we had very recently. The evidence is very clear that early intervention with stroke, as with many other diseases, plays a key part in ensuring that the cure is of longer standing. The noble Earl will know that last year's CQC report highlighted the huge differences and inconsistencies in what happens. It would...

Health: Stroke Care — Question for Short Debate (30 Jan 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, I, too, congratulate my noble friend Lady Wheeler on picking an opportune moment for this debate and on her concentration on after-stroke care. If you talk to clinicians involved in stroke, they say that the treatment you get immediately has a major effect on what may happen later on, so I want to concentrate on the situation in London. Many noble Lords will know that in London...

Health and Social Care Bill — Question (19 Jan 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: Does the noble Earl agree that, contrary to my noble friend's comments, there is a real regret in the health service that our excellence awards-as you know my trust in Chase Farm has received one-have been done away with by the Government with the CQC. I do not know what the Guardian article said and I do not know it means by "credit", but getting credit for good services and proper care is...

Health and Social Care Bill: Amendments 146A to 150A not moved. (30 Nov 2011)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: In my experience, the PCTs, in a sense, do not exist any more, in my part of London; I am not sure about elsewhere. Contrary to what the noble Lord, Lord Norton, suggested, it has not happened in London. All the PCTs have not been absorbed into the cluster. The chair of each of the PCTs that were in place before the cluster and the growth of the cluster has been seconded as chair of their...

Health and Social Care Bill: Amendments 146A to 150A not moved. (30 Nov 2011)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: I cannot answer for the whole of London. I really do not know. What I do know is that the more the clusters emerge, obviously the more those PCTs will be absorbed into them. My noble friend will be much more able to give you more detail about that. What is happening in real life in north central London is that the PCTs are being absorbed into the cluster. Contrary to the experience of the...

Health and Social Care Bill: Amendments 146A to 150A not moved. (30 Nov 2011)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, the noble Baroness, Lady Jolly, has made a very strong argument for what might happen in her part of the world. However for London it is very different, and I want to remind noble Lords that this is about health and social care, and relate what happened in my area. My trust is part of north central London and that cluster is now going to be merged with north east London. The cluster...

Health and Social Care Bill: Amendments 146A to 150A not moved. (30 Nov 2011)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, I, too, support Amendment 327ZB, tabled by the noble Baroness, Lady Bakewell, and her earlier amendment. However, I want to make this point. I would not want the people at the sharp end-the nurses and healthcare assistants dealing with patients-to feel that this in some way exonerates them from taking the care that they should. We need to be sure that Amendment 327ZB, which...

Funding of Care and Support — Motion to Take Note (24 Nov 2011)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, I, too, congratulate my noble friend Lady Pitkeathley on achieving this opportunity for us to debate a subject that is growing more and more important. There is no doubt that Dilnot is a good thing but I suggest that it is not the complete solution to all the problems faced in the delivery of social care. The problem is a major issue for us all and, I suggest, the responsibility of...

Health: Flu Vaccine Research — Question (23 Nov 2011)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, does the noble Earl agree with me that-despite the view of the noble Baroness, Lady Knight, about the Lancet report, which I have read-there is still an important need for people who work in the health service to have the current vaccine? It is not taken up by everybody, despite many trusts trying to ensure that everybody does take it up. Is there a stronger message that could go...

Health and Social Care Bill: Committee (4th Day) (9 Nov 2011)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, I had not intended to participate in the debate because I did not arrive until it had started, but I have been here a long time now and want to share with people how it feels on the ground. What the noble Baroness, Lady Cumberlege, said is absolutely true. I do not envy the noble Earl because I think that the analysis that the noble Lord, Lord Darzi, gave is exactly how it feels....

Education Bill: Report (4th Day) (1 Nov 2011)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, I, too, have put my name to Amendment 89ZZA. I welcome the opportunity to extend the congratulations that my noble friend Lord Young extended to the noble Baroness. I am sure she will be an asset to the team. I just want to add to more or less everything that my noble friend said in the context of apprenticeships. What surprises me is the semi-reluctant manner in which the Bill is...

Health: Healthcare Assistants — Question (24 Oct 2011)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have any plans to regulate healthcare assistants by establishing minimum standards and a code of conduct to ensure the protection of patients.

Health: Healthcare Assistants — Question (24 Oct 2011)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: I thank the noble Earl for his response, but is he aware of the worry and concern he has caused in his comments in the Timesthis morning? At my hospital, the director of nursing is very concerned that there are many reasons why nurses are reported to the statutory body and some of that can just be that they are not caring properly. The noble Earl's remarks do not take that into account. Will...

Health and Social Care Bill — Second Reading (Continued) (11 Oct 2011)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, it was my intention to focus in my contribution on healthcare assistants and their regulation. I focused on that issue because of its importance in patient care. However, I have an opportunity to raise that in the Question that I have tabled for 24 October and I give due notice to the Minister that I will be doing so. I have listened carefully to almost every contribution, and the...

Regional Growth Fund — Question (11 Oct 2011)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: Can the noble Baroness give us any more details on the Government's intention to support the BAE Systems workers? She will know that it was announced earlier this year that 3,000 workers were to be made redundant and that, in both Yorkshire and north-west England, very highly skilled people are being displaced as a result. The Government promised support. Please can you update us on that?

Armed Forces Bill: Report (4 Oct 2011)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, I too support these amendments, in particular Amendment 6. I would like to reinforce the argument made by my noble friend Lady Taylor, which was reinforced by the contribution of the noble Lord, Lord Empey, that the responsibility to reinforce the commitment that each of the departments has is crucial. We have some evidence now, as we regrettably have a number of members of our...
