Assisted Dying for the Terminally Ill Bill: Select Committee Report (10 Oct 2005)

Baroness McFarlane of Llandaff: My Lords, I wish to speak very briefly about the contribution made by nursing and midwifery, because those have been the professions in which I have worked. I came to nursing in 1947, which is a few years ago, and the ways of treating the dying were very different then; but I must have sat for many nights beside the beds of dying patients at Barts, where I trained. Many noble Lords will know...

NHS Dental Services (17 Jun 2004)

Baroness McFarlane of Llandaff: My Lords, what is now the average waiting time for a child to have extractions under general anaesthetic? Has that time been lengthened because anaesthetists must now have paediatric training?

Maternity Services (15 Jan 2003)

Baroness McFarlane of Llandaff: My Lords, it is an honour to follow my noble friend Lord Patel, and I wish to add my name to those who want to thank the noble Baroness, Lady Cumberlege, for raising this debate and for the customary skill with which she introduced it and faced us with the facts and issues. If I have an interest to declare in this debate, it is that last year was the 50th year since I completed my midwifery...

National Health Service Reform and Health Care Professions Bill (29 Apr 2002)

Baroness McFarlane of Llandaff: My Lords, I rise to speak in support of the amendments. I am often asked a number of questions about the quality of nursing education today and whether it has deteriorated. The usual attitude is that, "things are not what they were". My view of the current position is that nursing education is lacking in high quality clinical supervision from registered nurses in practice situations. I...

National Health Service Reform and Health Care Professions Bill (14 Mar 2002)

Baroness McFarlane of Llandaff: I rise to speak to Amendments Nos. 1 to 6 standing also in the names of the noble Baroness, Lady Cumberlege, and the noble Lord, Lord Desai. I was delighted to be able to add my name to theirs. At Second Reading, I listened with great interest to the speech of the noble Baroness, Lady Cumberlege. It seemed to me that she was giving expression to the kind of reforms that I had been longing to...

National Health Service Reform and Health Care Professions Bill (31 Jan 2002)

Baroness McFarlane of Llandaff: My Lords, I must begin by apologising to the Minister and to the House. I have a long-standing engagement in Manchester tomorrow morning and I shall almost certainly have to leave before the end of this debate. Many noble Lords, when reciting interests in the Bill, have taken the opportunity to rehearse their glorious youth. I want to add my interests to theirs. I have worked within or...

Medical Teaching and Research (21 Nov 2001)

Baroness McFarlane of Llandaff: My Lords, I wish to add my thanks to the noble Lord, Lord Walton, for initiating the debate and for the authoritative and spirited way in which he introduced it. I believe that many of us from time to time have had the privilege of working with the noble Lord on various sub-committees of the Select Committee on Science and Technology and know the tremendous contribution he has made to the...

Health and Social Care Bill (26 Apr 2001)

Baroness McFarlane of Llandaff: My Lords, I support Amendments Nos. 44 and 46. I apologise to the House for the fact that, for personal reasons, I have not been present for the Bill's previous stages, but I have read the Hansard reports and noted the eloquence with which reservations about the Government's definition of nursing care have been made. After listening to the noble Earl, Lord Howe, today, I felt that there was...

Hospice Movement ( 1 Mar 2000)

Baroness McFarlane of Llandaff: My Lords, I, too, would like to express my thanks to the noble Lord, Lord Walker, for his contribution and authoritative start to this debate. It is, I believe, a timely debate on the hospice movement. Perhaps at the start I ought to declare my interest or the perspective from which I approach the subject. As a student nurse I spent many months on night duty going from ward to ward acting as...

Nursing Education and Practice (26 Jan 2000)

Baroness McFarlane of Llandaff: My Lords, time is against us in this time-limited debate. However, I should like to thank everyone who has taken part in what has been a wide-ranging and informative debate. I am sure that we shall all leave the discussion with new vistas on the whole aspect of nursing education and practice. The experience and expertise of the House shows itself marvellously in a debate of this kind. Where...

Nursing Education and Practice (26 Jan 2000)

Baroness McFarlane of Llandaff: rose to call attention to the state of nursing education and practice; and to move for Papers. My Lords, it is a privilege to be the opening speaker in the first debate of the day, knowing that it will be closely followed by a debate on the teaching profession. Thus in one day we shall deal with two of the professions that contribute so much to our society: nursing and teaching, and which...

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (10 Jan 2000)

Baroness McFarlane of Llandaff: I am grateful for the letter from the Minister following Second Reading which clarified for me some of my anxieties about this part of the Bill. I welcome the single registration system for nursing and residential homes. It should lead to a much more flexible system which is better able to provide care tailored to the patient's needs. However, I ask the Minister for some clarification about...

Care Standards Bill (13 Dec 1999)

Baroness McFarlane of Llandaff: My Lords, I am sure your Lordships will not be surprised that I wish to add my congratulations to the noble Lord, Lord Mackenzie of Culkein, on his magnificent maiden speech. Rarely have I listened with such pleasure to a maiden speech. I enjoyed the way in which he stated the personal values with which he comes to the work of the House and also his authoritative analysis of the terms of the...

The Universities ( 8 Dec 1999)

Baroness McFarlane of Llandaff: My Lords, I may well have graduated from that state of self-interest to which the noble Lord, Lord Wallace of Saltaire, referred. It is now 12 years since I retired from my post as Professor of Nursing at the University of Manchester, so your Lordships may feel this afternoon that, in what I say, you are "walking with dinosaurs". My experience of research assessment was in the days of the...
