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.

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

Sajid Javid: I have not read that review, but now that my right hon. Friend has mentioned it I will certainly take a look at it. He raises an important point about access to GPs. He is right to say that many people would want to see the same GP again and again—that would be their preference. One can see how that may lead to better clinical outcomes, but I hope he will respect the fact that others do not...

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

Sajid Javid: The hon. Gentleman is right to talk about the importance of timely access to GPs, whether in Bradford or across the country. There are, of course, challenges across the country, which is one reason why we put in place an action plan, including some £500 million of extra funding, during the pandemic. On his plea for an urgent treatment centre, I will make sure that the Health Minister will...

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

Sajid Javid: As I have said before, no country got every decision right during the pandemic, but one thing we did get right was our response in terms of diagnostics, vaccinations and antivirals. That combination allowed us to become the first country in Europe to open up and therefore also to boost our economy. I will make sure that the hon. Gentleman gets the meeting he has asked for.

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

Sajid Javid: My hon. Friend makes a very good point and some good suggestions. West Midlands ambulance service is my local ambulance service too, and I recently met its chief executive officer and chairwoman. As he knows, the NHS has published and is executing a 10-point plan for emergency service recovery, but I shall certainly take what he says into account.

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

Sajid Javid: I am pleased to say that we have more nurses working for the NHS than at any point in its history, and last year we recruited an additional 10,900.

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

Sajid Javid: I accept that the vaccine has not worked in the intended way for every single person. I am afraid that this is a risk with any vaccine that has ever been approved in any major country. It is right, however, that when something goes wrong with a vaccination, it is looked at appropriately, and I am happy to discuss this further with my hon. Friend.

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

Sajid Javid: I hold the covid virus responsible.

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

Sajid Javid: Yes, that is a very important issue and I will be happy to meet my hon. Friend.

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

Sajid Javid: The right hon. Gentleman will know that I have visited the site and spoken to local members of the trust. It is a project that we support, and we are in the final stages of the final approvals.

Written Ministerial Statements — Department of Health and Social Care: Health and Social Care Update (13 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: I would like to inform the House that the final version of Data saves lives: reshaping health and social care with data has been published today. It builds on the ground-breaking use of data during the pandemic and sets out ambitious plans to harness the potential of data in health and care, while maintaining the highest standards of privacy and ethics. When facing this country’s greatest...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department of Health and Social Care: Health Update (9 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: In 2019, this Government set the bold ambition for England to be Smokefree by 2030 – reducing smoking rates to 5% or less. Today, Dr Javed Khan OBE published his Independent Review on Smokefree 2030, providing this Government with a wide range of recommendations for how we can achieve this ambition. Tragically, smoking remains the single biggest cause of preventable illness and death across...

Health and Social Care Leadership Review (8 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: I am not surprised by the typical response from the hon. Gentleman: not really engaging with the real issues and showing once again that he is more interested in theatrics than in the real issues facing our NHS. He started his comments by trying to make some kind of joke about the leadership news this week, but we all know that he is only interested in one leadership review in a political...

Health and Social Care Leadership Review (8 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: I thank my right hon. Friend for her comments. I always listen carefully to what she has to say, given her important experience. On the pension issue, she will know that in the 2020 Budget, I believe it was, significant changes were made, especially to where the taper rate kicks in—it went from £110,000 to £200,000. That benefited the top 5% of earners in this country, but it was the...

Health and Social Care Leadership Review (8 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: The hon. Lady is right to highlight the importance of this issue and she will know that my predecessor had asked for a review on it. It was done and we have accepted its outcome, and it is being implemented. I hope she will understand that in implementing the outcome of that review it is important that we listen to clinical advice from within the NHS and make sure that we put the interests of...

Health and Social Care Leadership Review (8 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: I thank my right hon. Friend for his support of the report. Of course he speaks with incredible experience. He is right to raise the issue of the importance of targets, and sometimes targets can have unintended consequences. The report does talk a bit about the importance of that issue. I can assure him that as we make changes and work with our colleagues in the NHS to make reforms, we will...

Health and Social Care Leadership Review (8 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: The hon. Gentleman is right to talk about the importance of recruitment in the NHS—bringing in the right people in the first place and then retaining them—but I hope that he will also recognise that good leadership plays an important part in that. This morning, I went to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, which is an outstanding and incredibly well run hospital, and heard from the...

Health and Social Care Leadership Review (8 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: The reason why the Department keeps that under review is that, although the pass has stopped and there is absolutely no prospect that I can see of its ever coming back into place, it is right that, as we wind things down and work on the digital resources, all things are looked at appropriately.
