Access to GP Services and NHS Dentistry (21 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: We are working with our colleagues in the Home Office on this and other skills and healthcare issues, so I can give the hon. Gentleman that assurance. He talks about the major problem he is facing in Wales, and that major problem is a Labour Government. I hope he agrees—[Interruption.] He is nodding. Look at the performance of Labour in Wales, whether on health or education: the median...

Access to GP Services and NHS Dentistry (21 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: I would like to hear what the hon. Lady thinks of the Labour Government in Wales and their abysmal performance when it comes to healthcare.

Access to GP Services and NHS Dentistry (21 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: That is a very strange comment about the hon. Lady’s colleagues in Wales. Either she does not know or she is deliberately saying something she does not quite believe. Perhaps I can make her aware of the facts in Wales, where the number of people waiting more than two years for treatment currently stands at more than 70,000. That is more than three times the figure in England. That is more...

Access to GP Services and NHS Dentistry (21 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: Maybe the hon. Member for Rotherham (Sarah Champion) can tell us whether she agrees with her hon. Friend the hon. Member for Blackburn (Kate Hollern) on Wales.

Access to GP Services and NHS Dentistry (21 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: I am happy to talk about that. Because of the record funding this Government have put in, both pre and post pandemic, we are seeing record increases in the workforce across the NHS. When it comes to GPs, since March 2019 we have seen an increase of some 2,389. On top of that, we have seen a further increase of more than 18,000 full-time equivalent staff working in other important primary care...

Access to GP Services and NHS Dentistry (21 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: Yes, absolutely. I know my hon. Friend speaks with great experience in this area. I am just about to come on to some of the changes we will be making to primary care, which I am sure he will welcome.

Access to GP Services and NHS Dentistry (21 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: I will, and I will get back to my hon. Friend on that issue with more detail. I hope he welcomes the investment we are seeing and the record numbers of doctors and GPs in training.

Access to GP Services and NHS Dentistry (21 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: Yes, I am. I have seen the report my hon. Friend refers to and have discussed aspects of it with its authors, so the short answer is yes.

Access to GP Services and NHS Dentistry (21 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: I will later. In terms of the changes we are making, let me first turn to primary care. The hon. Member for Ilford North, in his motion today, is calling on me to “urgently bring forward a plan to fix the crisis in primary care”, as he puts it. That is his motion. He is probably too busy supporting the strikers to have read my speech to the NHS Confederation last week. Had he bothered to...

Access to GP Services and NHS Dentistry (21 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: As I said—I am glad that the hon. Gentleman was listening—there have been record levels of funding in the NHS, and, as we set out in our spending plans, that will continue. But that is no thanks to the hon. Member for Ilford North and his colleagues, who all voted against that record funding. They wanted to deny those resources to their constituents. He should reflect on the impact of...

Access to GP Services and NHS Dentistry (21 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: The hon. Gentleman is now using the past tense. A moment ago, he claimed that it was under threat. He clearly has no issues with giving false information in this House. The truth is that, if Wakefield wants a better future, as everyone in Wakefield deserves, only one by-election candidate can provide that, and that is Nadeem Ahmed. We intend to go much further to build a truly 21st-century...

Access to GP Services and NHS Dentistry (21 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: I do not have the exact figures to hand, but I know that millions of pounds were drawn down and used to deliver tens of thousands of appointments across the country. That made a huge difference to a great many people.

Access to GP Services and NHS Dentistry (21 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: My right hon. Friend’s point is important and well made, and I will look at the issue closely and get back to him, if I may. As we have already heard today—but it is such an important point—the challenge for NHS dentistry predated the pandemic. It is not just about the number of dentists in England, but about the completely outdated contracts under which they are working, which were...

Access to GP Services and NHS Dentistry (21 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: I will in a moment. If there is one thing that unites all our work on primary care and dentistry, it is this. We are shifting to a new mode of operating—one that is about helping the whole population to stay healthy, not just about treating those who ask for help. We need to get to a place where we are healthier for longer, because freedom is hollow without our health. Our new Health and...

Sajid Javid: That is rubbish!

Written Ministerial Statements — Department of Health and Social Care: Evaluation and Purchase of Antimicrobials (20 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: The ability of bacteria - and other types of pathogen - to develop and propagate resistance to the available therapeutic drugs and medicines, such as antibiotics, used to treat them is a significant and growing threat. Alongside extensive efforts to tackle this threat, as set out in the Government’s five-year National Action Plan, we have sought to reduce the need for antibiotics. This is...

Health and Social Care: NHS Backlogs (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: First, may I associate myself with your remarks, Mr Speaker, about the Falklands war as we remember those who lost their lives and their loved ones? We are making good progress on tackling the covid-19 backlog, having already halved the number of patients with the longest waits and delivered more than a million tests and checks at our new community diagnostic centres. Our elective recovery...

Health and Social Care: NHS Backlogs (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: I am pleased to give that assurance to my hon. Friend. We are ensuring that every penny is spent on the elective recovery and makes the greatest possible contribution to tackling those covid-19 backlogs. We are investing £8 billion more over the next three years, and that will increase elective activity. I am also pleased to say that in his region, we have already opened some four new...

Health and Social Care: NHS Backlogs (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: It is an important question, and the hon. Lady will know that specific guidance is already set out for those who are immunocompromised. As she will also know, Evusheld has conditional marketing authorisation from the independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency. With the MHRA and others, further tests are going on via the UK Health Sciences Authority, because it is...

Health and Social Care: NHS Backlogs (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: My right hon. Friend is absolutely correct, and that is why that is one of our biggest priorities. As well as asking the NHS to come up for the first time with a 15-year, long-term workforce strategy, we are also recruiting at a record rate, with more doctors and nurses working for the NHS than ever before.
