Health and Social Care Leadership Review (8 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: It was precisely because of that important point raised by my hon. Friend that when we had the recent Bill before Parliament—now the Health and Care Act 2022, thanks to the will of this House—we accepted the safe space amendment.

Health and Social Care Leadership Review (8 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: My hon. Friend is right. It is well known how the Labour Government came up with contracts with the British Dental Association that are leading to poor outcomes for millions of people across the country. We have already made some short-term changes, and we are in the process, right now, of making some longer- term strategic changes that will create all the right incentives.

Health and Social Care Leadership Review (8 Jun 2022)

Sajid Javid: With permission, Mr Speaker, I will make a statement on the independent leadership review of health and social care. This is an important report that comes at a critical time. This Government are embarking on a huge programme of reform to tackle the covid backlogs, to improve people’s experience of the NHS and social care, and to place this system on a sustainable footing for the future....

Written Ministerial Statements — Department of Health and Social Care: Health Update (8 Jun 2022)

The Health Protection (Notification) Regulations 2010 have been amended to include monkeypox as a notifiable disease in Schedule 1 and...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department of Health and Social Care: Monkeypox Update (23 May 2022)

Sajid Javid: Cases Following announcements made by the UK Health Security Agency on 7, 14, 18 and 20 May, I am writing to inform the House that (as of 12pm on Monday 23 May 2022) a total of 56 Monkeypox cases, in 3 unlinked incidents, have now been confirmed in the UK. Further cases have been identified worldwide, outside the endemic regions of West and Central Africa. Monkeypox virus in the UK is...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Disease Control (19 May 2022)

Sajid Javid: The United Kingdom supports a new international instrument to strengthen pandemic prevention and preparedness. The purpose of the instrument is to strengthen global cooperation in order to better protect the UK from the health, social and economic impacts of pandemics. We want to agree UK priority areas such as improving transparency, timely data sharing and supporting equitable access to...

Making Britain the Best Place to Grow Up and Grow Old (16 May 2022)

Sajid Javid: It is an honour to close this debate on the Loyal Address. In this platinum jubilee year, let me extend my thanks to Her Majesty the Queen for her years of dedicated service. I also thank all right hon. and hon. Members who have taken part, but, I have to say, I am disappointed in the shadow Health Secretary, the hon. Member for Ilford North (Wes Streeting). He has taken this once again as...

Making Britain the Best Place to Grow Up and Grow Old (16 May 2022)

Sajid Javid: Of course it is not. I will come on to that in a moment. The hon. Lady knows full well why the NHS is facing its most challenging time in history. Being the best place in which to grow up and grow old relies on keeping people safe, including from disease. We rose to the challenges of the pandemic. Brexit gave us the mindset to license and deploy a vaccine against covid-19 quicker than any...

Making Britain the Best Place to Grow Up and Grow Old (16 May 2022)

Sajid Javid: The Under-Secretary, my hon. Friend the Member for Lewes (Maria Caulfield), met some of the victims of that today. There are plans that we are closely looking at and when we are ready we will come to this House with them. My hon. Friends the Members for Redcar (Jacob Young) and for Ynys Môn (Virginia Crosbie) praised the energy security Bill, and they were right to do so—it is a very...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department of Health and Social Care: Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Announcements (12 May 2022)

Sajid Javid: Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) affects the lives of children and adults across the country. It can be an incredibly disabling condition with fluctuating symptoms making it difficult to take part in everyday activities, enjoy a family or social life, access services and engage in work or education – especially for the estimated 25% of people who have severe or...

Health and Social Care: Smoke-free 2030 Target (19 Apr 2022)

Sajid Javid: I know that my hon. Friend has long been a passionate advocate for a smoke-free England, and I read his recent Westminster Hall debate with interest. Some 64,000 deaths a year are attributed to smoking and it is one of the greatest drivers of health disparities in our country. I am personally determined that we should do everything we can to reach the Government’s ambition of a smoke-free...

Health and Social Care: Smoke-free 2030 Target (19 Apr 2022)

Sajid Javid: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. The smoking rate is currently 13.5%, which is the lowest on record. However, smoking remains the largest driver of health disparities in our country. The new tobacco control plan, which will be informed by the new independent review, will be looking to do exactly what my hon. Friend says.

Health and Social Care: Smoke-free 2030 Target (19 Apr 2022)

Sajid Javid: The hon. Gentleman has long been a campaigner on this issue and I commend him for that. He is right to continue pushing. I do not want to pre-empt the outcome of the independent review because it is just that, a review fully independent of Government. However, once it is complete—I hope to publish it in May—we can set out our plans.

Health and Social Care: Health and Care Integration (19 Apr 2022)

Sajid Javid: The past few years have shown that we are strongest when we work together. Earlier this year we published the integration White Paper, drawing on our experience of the pandemic to develop a plan that will bring together the NHS and local government to deliver jointly for local communities. We have also created integrated care partnerships, such as the programmes in mid-Nottinghamshire and...

Health and Social Care: Health and Care Integration (19 Apr 2022)

Sajid Javid: I can give my hon. Friend that assurance. Of course, we are already putting in record funding for local authorities and the NHS to deal with backlogs. I believe the plan we set out earlier this month for the integration of NHS and local authority care services will make a real difference.

Health and Social Care: Health and Care Integration (19 Apr 2022)

Sajid Javid: I am pleased to give my hon. Friend the assurance he seeks. The integration White Paper signals our intention to go further and faster on health and care integration, building on the work already being done by the NHS, adult social care and local government to deliver services jointly. The plan will lead to better collaboration, and we want to make sure that overall responsibility is still...

Health and Social Care: Health and Care Integration (19 Apr 2022)

Sajid Javid: I understand the right hon. Lady’s point, but it is about what works on the ground. My understanding is that what is happening in her area is about a shared management team that shares best practice and tries to address challenges together, rather than any kind of formal merger.

Health and Social Care: Health and Care Integration (19 Apr 2022)

Sajid Javid: That is exactly what the new integrated care systems are all about. My understanding is that the hon. Gentleman sat on the Health and Care Public Bill Committee, which made it a reality.

Health and Social Care: Health and Care Integration (19 Apr 2022)

Sajid Javid: That is not the case at all. The hon. Gentleman knows, although he pretends not to, that the NHS and social care are facing unprecedented pressure because of the pandemic. He will know that as a result of the pandemic, both in NHS settings and in adult social care there has been a necessity for infection and protection controls. He will know that, sadly, staff absences are higher than they...

Health and Social Care: Health and Care Integration (19 Apr 2022)

Sajid Javid: My right hon. Friend is absolutely right to raise this issue. We have heard time and time again in this Chamber about the pressures our constituents are facing in order to get that kind of face-to-face access to their GPs. We all know why the situation was particularly bad at the height of the pandemic, but we expect it to improve rapidly. The percentage of people being seen face to face is...
