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

Sajid Javid: The hon. Lady is right to talk about the importance of eye care services. That is why we are putting record investment into dealing with those covid backlogs. As she rightly points out, many of those are in eye care and ophthalmic facilities and surgeries. That record investment is going in, and we will keep it under review to make sure it is leading to the outcome that we all want to see.

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

Sajid Javid: As the hon. Gentleman will know, all decisions are rightly made by Ministers. I agree about the importance of tackling smoking. The Government are committed to a smoke-free 2030, which is exactly why I commissioned the independent Khan review. I welcome its findings and we are carefully considering them.

Health and Social Care: Primary Care Staff Recruitment (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: The Government’s commitment to deliver 50 million more general practice appointments is critical for improving access to primary care across the country. Our workforce are crucial for that, and we are well on track to deliver 26,000 more full-time primary care staff by March 2024, with more than 18,000 primary care staff already recruited since 2019.

Health and Social Care: Primary Care Staff Recruitment (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: I agree with my hon. Friend and am incredibly grateful, as she is, for the huge contribution of GPs during the pandemic in helping to deliver the largest vaccination programme that the NHS has ever seen. Because of the pandemic, we also provided record support to GPs that helped to cut bureaucracy, helped them to share their workload and helped clinicians to give even more support to...

Health and Social Care: Primary Care Staff Recruitment (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: First, I will ensure the hon. Lady gets the meeting she requests. She will know that NHS GP services all have to meet the same requirements, the same regulations and the same standards across the country. Where patients are not getting that care and those standards are not being met, we expect local commissioners to take action.

Health and Social Care: Health and Social Care: Leadership and Management (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: In health and care, strong leadership can make the difference between life and death. I have been clear that we can accept only the highest possible standards and that in some cases poor leadership has been tolerated for too long. That is why I have accepted in full the recommendations of General Sir Gordon Messenger’s independent review and will set out a delivery plan to begin what I...

Health and Social Care: Health and Social Care: Leadership and Management (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: My hon. Friend is absolutely right about the importance of leadership. I am pleased to tell him that my Department has just received the strategic outline case for his local A&E’s Future Fit programme, which is currently being reviewed. As he undoubtedly knows, the business case process is led by the trust and is already supported by some early funding; I understand that the trust aims to...

Health and Social Care: Health and Social Care: Leadership and Management (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: I thank my hon. Friend for her tireless campaigning on the issue, which she brought up recently in the Health and Social Care Committee. I am pleased to tell her that elective orthopaedic surgery at the Princess Royal Hospital will resume from 20 June. My hon. Friend is right about the importance of the Messenger review. There were many examples of excellent leadership in it, but sadly there...

Health and Social Care: Health and Social Care: Leadership and Management (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: Yes, of course I can give the hon. Lady that commitment. I am very sorry to hear about Joanna; I think of her, her loved ones and her two children. I will absolutely look personally into the case. I hope that the hon. Lady agrees that where we see poor outcomes, it is important to make sure that we have the best possible leadership in place.

Health and Social Care: Health and Social Care: Leadership and Management (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: These are important issues, and I have discussed this with the right hon. Lady. I will take another look at the management of Walsall Manor.

Health and Social Care: Health and Social Care: Leadership and Management (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: I do of course agree with my hon. Friend. There are huge challenges for the NHS here in England, but as she has highlighted, the challenges are much greater in Wales because of how the Labour Government there neglected the NHS, way before the pandemic as well as during it. When it comes to leadership, although the Messenger review was commissioned for England, I think they would do well to...

Health and Social Care: Health and Social Care: Leadership and Management (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: The hon. Gentleman might know that in 2007 the then Labour Government changed the law to allow takeovers such as that to happen. He might want to reflect on that. In terms of local management, there are consistent high standards that need to be met locally, and local commissioners should be made aware of what he has just said.

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: Today, we remember the 72 people who lost their lives and their loved ones affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy five years ago. In the Department of Health and Social Care, we are getting on with the job. We are focused on tackling the covid backlogs. Our new community diagnostic centres are springing up in towns and cities across the country, with 90 of the 160 planned already open and 1...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: I thank the hon. Lady for raising the importance of getting vaccinations right. She will know that we rely on the independent advice of our clinicians—the committee known as the JCVI—and I think it is right that it is independent. Ultimately, it decides on its advice, and it is for Ministers whether to accept it. However, she has made an important point about unpaid carers, and I will ask...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: I am happy to respond to my hon. Friend. He is right that we of course want to ensure that everyone has timely access to NHS dentistry and that the profession is an appealing career choice. Health Education England has a dental education and reform programme, which will help retain new dentists in the NHS by placing training in areas of greatest need, and offer more flexibility and more...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: As I said earlier, the hon. Gentleman should reflect on the rule changes made by a previous Labour Government that allowed the management of many GP practices to change hands. When such serious allegations are made, it is right that local commissioners investigate them properly and independently. When it comes to GP access and capacity, I hope he will welcome that we are making a record...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: I told Members last week that I will review whether we can have an independent review of the North East Ambulance Service, and the NHS has agreed to an independent review. The hon. Gentleman stands up week after week and tries to claim he is on the side of patients and NHS workers, but we know he is actually on the side of those who are on strike—that is where his loyalties lie. Will he...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: My sincere condolences to the family of David Hopkins. Cancer diagnosis and treatment is an absolute priority, which is why we are putting £2.3 billion into campaigns and new initiatives to encourage people with suspected cancer to come forward. I am pleased that the referral rate is currently 120% of the pre-pandemic level. I will, of course, read the APPG’s report. I visited the largest...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: The hon. Gentleman raises a very important issue. The House is well aware of the Government’s work to bring justice to those who have been affected by contaminated blood, and we will continue to take that seriously.

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (14 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: I am afraid that it was not clear to me which tests the hon. Gentleman was talking about; all I heard was “300,000 tests”. So if he cares to write to me, I will respond properly to his question.
