Care Homes: CCTV — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I congratulate my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Beaconsfield (Mr Grieve) on securing the debate. I welcome his well-thought-out and measured contribution to this incredibly important agenda. At its heart is a focus on our shared interest in safety and quality of care for those in residential settings. I thank other...

Care Homes: CCTV — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: We have not done that to date, but we would be very happy to see the valuable evidence that my right hon. and learned Friend says people have been collecting. The hon. Members for Burnley (Julie Cooper) and for North Ayrshire and Arran (Patricia Gibson) raised the concern that CCTV has the potential to be intrusive in people’s lives, not only for those who live in such homes but for...

Care Homes: CCTV — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: I thank my right hon. and learned Friend for that legal advice, which would probably have cost me a fortune in the outside world. I am grateful for that clarification. The provider should consult those affected on the use of surveillance wherever it is possible to do so. It would have to meet the cost not simply of the equipment and the monitoring of it if it is done by a third party, but of...

Care Homes: CCTV — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: I accept that there were cuts to local government funding during the time of the recession that we all endured. That was incredibly regrettable but was one of those very difficult decisions that Governments have to take. In the last three years, we have increased funding by £9.4 billion, which equates to an 8% increase. It demonstrates the challenge of this ageing population—people...

Care Homes: CCTV — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: My right. hon and learned Friend has made that point incredibly powerfully and I do not dispute for one second that there is value in that form of monitoring. Certain responsible employers might see that value and benefit from it. I still do not think that there is any substitute whatever for top-quality management carrying out that sort of monitoring and surveillance themselves, when done...

Health and Social Care: Maternity Care (24 Jul 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: Our national ambition is to halve the rates of stillbirths, neonatal and maternal deaths, and serious birth-related brain injuries by 2015. We are working with our partners to implement the maternity safety strategy, and new data shows that the stillbirth rate in 2017 was the lowest since records began in 1927.

Health and Social Care: Maternity Care (24 Jul 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: I completely understand my hon. Friend’s concerns. She has been an incredibly strong advocate and campaigner on this very issue. As she knows, no permanent changes will be made until the work is carried out by the independent review panel, which is looking at attempts to recruit obstetric staff for her local services. I thank her very much for the offer of a visit; I am sure the...

Health and Social Care: Maternity Care (24 Jul 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: That is incredibly sad news. We hate to hear of anybody who has done such incredible service in the pursuit of great healthcare around the world taking such drastic steps. We have an incredibly strong departmental ambition for NHS maternity to provide the safest, highest quality care in the world. That is something we will continue to aspire towards.

Health and Social Care: Maternity Care (24 Jul 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: The Department’s maternity safety ambition plans are to train more than 3,000 extra midwives over the next four years. As part of that, we will be working with our partners to develop new training routes to become registered midwives so that, along with other roles in the NHS, maternity and midwifery can attract the best and retain the most talented staff.

Health and Social Care: Maternity Care (24 Jul 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: There are in fact 2,300 more midwives in the NHS than there were in 2010, but the hon. Gentleman makes a very good point. We want to continue to attract the best people into midwifery, which is why we are providing an extra £500,000 to the NHS to cover the clinical placement costs for 650 additional students in 2019-20.

Health and Social Care: Mistakes in Healthcare (24 Jul 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: Families and patients are at the heart of our work to improve patient safety, which is why all NHS organisations are subject to a statutory duty of candour and should be open and transparent with patients and families when things go wrong. Last week, the National Quality Board published new guidance for NHS trusts to help them better support, communicate and engage with bereaved families and...

Health and Social Care: Mistakes in Healthcare (24 Jul 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: My hon. Friend is right to raise that issue. Those who have lost loved ones in that way need answers when things go wrong. The recent bereavement guidance is clear that, when notified of a death, families and carers should be told that they can comment on the care of the person who has died and raise any concerns. From next year, medical examiners will offer greater scrutiny for the bereaved,...

Health and Social Care: Mistakes in Healthcare (24 Jul 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for that question, and I will certainly look more closely at the issue.

Health and Social Care: South Tees CCG (24 Jul 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: I reassure the hon. Lady that the level of funding allocated to South Tees CCG will not change as a result of the group being placed in special measures.

Health and Social Care: South Tees CCG (24 Jul 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: The hon. Lady is absolutely right to raise this issue. Prevention is a key aspect of the new Secretary of State’s focus as the Department moves forward. NHS England will support all CCGs that are in special measures to return to financial balance. It also provides a bespoke package of support, along with a higher level of monitoring and oversight, to ensure that the money is always...

NHS Whistleblowers (18 Jul 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. I start by thanking the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire (Dr Whitford) for bringing forward this important debate on a vital issue and for the keen interest she has shown in patient safety across the board. I always listen carefully to what she says, not only because her contributions come from her perspective as a...

NHS Whistleblowers (18 Jul 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: The hon. Lady makes a valid point, which we will take into consideration. As the hon. Lady knows, the National Guardian’s Office was established in 2016, and the independent national guardian, Dr Henrietta Hughes, was appointed to support NHS whistleblowers and to improve the NHS reporting culture. The National Guardian’s Office also provides leadership, training and advice for a...

Transforming Care Programme (5 Jul 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Transforming Care Programme (5 Jul 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: I am grateful to you, Madam Deputy Speaker. My lack of understanding of the rules is clearly shining through quite beautifully here. I completely forgot to say earlier that we have an inter-ministerial group on disability in society which met for the first time yesterday, and I hope that it will go some way towards achieving some of the improvements that the right hon. Gentleman wants to see.

Transforming Care Programme (5 Jul 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: I congratulate the right hon. Member for North Norfolk (Norman Lamb) on securing this really important debate. I thank him for his continuing hard work and commitment, both within this place and outside, in championing the interests of people with a learning disability. As a Minister in the coalition, he was a driving force on this issue, particularly following the Winterbourne View scandal....
