Health and Social Care: Leaving the EU (24 Jul 2018)

Health and Social Care: Leaving the EU (24 Jul 2018)

Stephen Barclay: My hon. Friend has raised an extremely important point. The Home Secretary recently announced a settlement scheme to enable those staff from the European economic area to remain. However, it is also important for us not to scare EU nationals, and to point out that there are now 4,500 more non-UK EU nationals working in the NHS than there were two years ago, at the time of the referendum....

Health and Social Care: Leaving the EU (24 Jul 2018)

Stephen Barclay: I would have expected the hon. Lady to welcome the additional funds that have been announced—not just the £2 billion for social care, but the extra £20.5 billion a year, in real terms, that will be delivered through the long-term funding settlement. Instead of criticising that funding, the hon. Lady should welcome the Government’s commitment to increasing funds for the...

Health and Social Care: Leaving the EU (24 Jul 2018)

Stephen Barclay: My hon. Friend is right to draw the House’s attention to the fact that there are a number of benefits from leaving the EU, not just in terms of the dividend to which he refers, but in terms of flexibility, for example in—[Interruption.] Labour Members do not seem to want to hear about the opportunities: opportunities on life sciences for example, in terms of getting medicines...

Health and Social Care: Leaving the EU (24 Jul 2018)

Health and Social Care: Leaving the EU (24 Jul 2018)

Stephen Barclay: There are a number of things that can be taken advantage of. We can use the flexibilities we have in terms of assessments with shorter timescales so that we can prioritise UK drugs that are bespoke to the UK market. There will be opportunities as part of this, as well as our working closely with European colleagues.

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (24 Jul 2018)

Stephen Barclay: My right hon. Friend raises an important point about ensuring that procedures are done in the right place at the right cost, but primarily in a way that is best for the patient. I am happy to meet her to discuss the specifics of that and to see whether a change can be made.

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (24 Jul 2018)

Stephen Barclay: I am happy to discuss with my hon. Friend how we provide support.
