Delegated Legislation: Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (19 Jun 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: I congratulate the hon. Member for High Peak (Ruth George) on securing this debate on such an incredibly important issue. She has articulated quite beautifully the hell that people suffering from complex regional pain syndrome go through. The only thing that I can even slightly identify with is the pain of childbirth, but even after that it is unimaginable for us to conceive of the sort of...

Delegated Legislation: Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (19 Jun 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: I will certainly look at that. The hon. Lady mentioned delays in referral to a pain clinic, which is something that concerns me. Waiting times should be about 13 weeks once a GP has referred someone, but, as she says, some people wait longer. NHS England commissions the highly specialised pain management services for adults and children, and we will raise the issue with it. The National...

Health and Social Care: Epilepsy Guidance (Autism) (19 Jun 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: NICE is currently in the early stages of updating the clinical guidelines on the diagnosis and management of epilepsies in adults, and plan to go out to consultation on a draft scope in October this year.

Health and Social Care: Epilepsy Guidance (Autism) (19 Jun 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: At this stage, it is too early in the update process for NICE to say exactly what its guidance will cover. However, my right hon. Friend is chair of the all-party group on autism and vice-chair of the all-party group on epilepsy, and she was the driving force behind the Autism Act 2009. I think that NICE would do very well to heed her advice.

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (19 Jun 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: The fundamental issue here is that we need a social care system that works hand in hand with our health services—the two are umbilically linked. The key plank of the new NHS 10-year plan must be the full integration of health and care services. It does not make sense to publish the Green Paper before the NHS plan has even been drafted. We will bring forward a Green Paper, but in the...

Health and Social Care: People with Learning Disabilities (19 Jun 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: Commissioning high-quality health and social care services is a local responsibility. The Care Quality Commission monitors, inspects and regulates services that people with a learning disability may use. Where quality and safety standards are not met, it will take action.

Health and Social Care: People with Learning Disabilities (19 Jun 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: Adult social care was mentioned yesterday, specifically in the news that we plan to bring together the way in which health and social care interoperate. We need more collaborative work between health and social care to reduce the amount of pressure that one puts upon the other. We have set out very clearly that we will produce a Green Paper later this year to address how we will tackle the...

Health and Social Care: People with Learning Disabilities (19 Jun 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: My hon. Friend is absolutely right to draw attention to the fundamental importance of being reassured that all services that are provided are safe and reliable. Since the CQC has been looking at services up and down the country, it has brought to them a level of transparency and, indeed, quality. We keep under review the services that it regulates, and this is certainly something that we can...

Health and Social Care: People with Learning Disabilities (19 Jun 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: We are aware of concerns in the sector with regard to sleep-ins and we are looking very carefully at the options. We have been developing the evidence base very carefully. We have been engaging with the European Commission, the sector and other Government Departments.

Health and Social Care: People with Learning Disabilities (19 Jun 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. It is vital that when we look at how to move forward with both our health and social care services, we are able to capture all the latest technology to ensure that we improve the experience for all our service users.

Health and Social Care: People with Learning Disabilities (19 Jun 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: The hon. Gentleman makes an excellent point. It would be terrible to see a health and social care sector in which people doing the same work are valued differently, so I will look carefully at the point he raises.

Terminal Illnesses: Continuing Healthcare — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: It is an absolute pleasure to serve under your stewardship, Ms McDonagh. I start by congratulating the hon. Member for Islwyn (Chris Evans) on securing this important debate on NHS continuing healthcare. I pay tribute to him for the inspiring work he does on the all-party parliamentary group on motor neurone disease. I also pay tribute, like him, to not only those who suffer from this very...

Accrington Victoria Walk-in Centre (23 May 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: I congratulate the hon. Member for Hyndburn (Graham P. Jones) on securing the debate. He made a very powerful case on behalf of his constituents and very carefully set out the enormous strength of feeling in his constituency, as of course he should as the local Member of Parliament. I am grateful to him for articulating his case so powerfully. Following a three-month public consultation, the...

Accrington Victoria Walk-in Centre (23 May 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: I take on board what the hon. Gentleman says about the consultation and also the consultation that he ran on Facebook. I know how worrying it must be for local people when a service closes, but it is the responsibility of the local NHS to follow the Government’s guidelines. The Government’s four tests for any service change are that it should have support from GP commissioners, be...

Road Traffic Offenders (Surrender of Driving Licences etc) (No. 2) Bill: Helen and Douglas House Hospice (11 May 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: I congratulate the hon. Member for Oxford West and Abingdon (Layla Moran) on securing a debate on this really important matter. As MPs, we are all aware of the crucial role that hospices play in supporting our local communities at a time of need. That is a testament to the dedication of staff, the incredible efforts of volunteers and the amazing feats of fundraisers, many of whom have been...

Road Traffic Offenders (Surrender of Driving Licences etc) (No. 2) Bill: Helen and Douglas House Hospice (11 May 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: I believe that my hon. Friend has visited the hospice and I know that he works keenly on this subject. I totally understand the feelings of local people, and I feel strongly that CCGs need to engage with local communities and ensure that the services they commission meet local needs and support local people. With Douglas House planning to close from July, the hospice has been discussing with...

Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (8 May 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: The Government are absolutely committed to reducing the number of people with learning disabilities whose deaths may have been preventable and have pledged to do so with different health and care interventions. The learning disabilities mortality review programme was established in June 2015; it was commissioned by NHS England to support local areas in England to review the deaths of people...

Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (8 May 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: I thank the hon. Lady for raising this issue; the report makes for very troubling reading. On the date of publication, the hon. Lady will be aware that this was an independent report prepared by the University of Bristol and commissioned by NHS England, which wanted to look into this really important issue, and because it was an independent report, it did not actually alert us to publication,...

Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (8 May 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: I pay tribute to my right hon. Friend, whose incredible work over many years campaigning on behalf of autistic people up and down the country has made a magnificent difference. She is right to raise this issue. It is of course unacceptable that people with autism have poorer health outcomes, and we are determined to address this. I meet regularly with representative groups and we take on...

Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (8 May 2018)

Caroline Dinenage: The hon. Lady is right to raise those points. The Government are absolutely committed to reducing the number of people with learning disabilities whose deaths might have been preventable had there been different health and care interventions. That is why we set up the learning from deaths programme, and have commissioned an investigation of the issue. We are determined not only to learn from...
