Surgical Mesh Implants — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (18 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Owen. I thank the hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull West and Hessle (Emma Hardy) for securing this debate and shining a light on a condition that is very distressing for far too many women. Clearly this is not where we would like to be. Obviously, many hon. Members would like an immediate ban on mesh products. From my perspective, the...

Surgical Mesh Implants — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (18 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: I hesitate to give a full answer, but the advice I have received is that over the years these products have been reviewed and there are clinical standards for the size of the mesh. I will write to my hon. Friend in more detail, because I am not an expert in that. The hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull West and Hessle calls for a public inquiry. I think it is more important that we get the...

Surgical Mesh Implants — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (18 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: I give my hon. Friend that assurance. To be frank, the same standards of consent and regulation apply in the private sector as in the public sector. A number of colleagues mentioned issues in the private sector, but there is no excuse; it is equally regulated by the Care Quality Commission and the General Medical Council, so the same standards apply.

Surgical Mesh Implants — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (18 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: I am not sure that there is a loophole. Surgeons are required to demonstrate their clinical competence as part of their regular revalidation, whether they work in the private or the public sector. Concerned patients may contact the GMC, just as they would do in an NHS trust. In addition, surgeons will be inspected by the CQC and their procedure examined to ensure that it meets standards. I...

Safeguarding Adults with Learning Disabilities — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Wilson. I join everyone else in paying tribute to the dignified and passionate way in which the hon. Member for Newcastle upon Tyne North (Catherine McKinnell) outlined her case. It is truly heartbreaking. Lee’s mother is watching today. She put her trust in the institutions of the state to care for her son, and we failed her. It...

Safeguarding Adults with Learning Disabilities — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: I totally agree with the hon. Lady. As she says, we have seen that in other cases of abuse. We can look at Rotherham and how the agencies behaved there. It is almost as if there is a view that, “He’s a bad ’un; he doesn’t deserve protection.” That is absolutely not the case. We need to be thinking about the person in a very person-centred way. It was very clear...

Safeguarding Adults with Learning Disabilities — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: That is a fair point. Data is everything, and as time progresses, we will build up more meaningful data, but certainly if crimes are being reported, they are more likely to be prosecuted. Even if the behaviour has been hidden, or if it is on the rise, at least prosecution can happen, but we need to tackle the behaviour first and foremost, to be frank. Prevention is always better than cure....

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Transvaginal Mesh Implants (10 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: My colleague, Lord O’Shaughnessy, met the MHRA on 27 September to discuss this very important issue. The Department will have further discussions with NHS England on the support given to patients who have suffered due to this procedure and has asked the regulator to work with the clinical community to assess the associated risks and whether alternative treatments offer better outcomes...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Transvaginal Mesh Implants (10 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: I thank my hon. Friend for his work in this area. I fully sympathise with anyone who has suffered complications as a result of these devices, but we do not currently have enough evidence to warrant our asking the MHRA to reclassify these procedures, and this is a view shared by other regulators across the world. I can advise him, however, that the National Institute for Health and Care...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Transvaginal Mesh Implants (10 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: I am absolutely aware that many women experience substantial side effects and complications following this procedure. Equally, however, many women also experience considerable relief from symptoms. We need a good review of the evidence to make sure that we adopt this procedure only when it fully suits women and that women understand the risks associated with the procedure. But I fully...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Transvaginal Mesh Implants (10 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: I say again that many women have received relief from their symptoms following this procedure, but we need more evidence before we can properly review it, so it is important that we allow NICE to undertake its work so that we can take a clear view. Any procedure comes with risk—no surgery is without it—but obviously the more evidence we can gather, the better we can advise women...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Five Year Forward View for Mental Health (10 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: We are making good progress on the implementation of the five year forward view for mental health. We have published a workforce plan and invested more money than ever before, and we are providing care to 120,000 more people this year compared with 2013.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Five Year Forward View for Mental Health (10 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: I thank my hon. Friend for her work in this area. Yes, I can give her that assurance. It is welcome that local authorities and clinical commissioning groups are considering innovative approaches concentrating on wellbeing, as well as acute services, and eco-therapy is part of that agenda.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Five Year Forward View for Mental Health (10 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: I am sure that we are all very sorry to hear of the death of my right hon. Friend’s constituent, and we send our condolences to her family. It is extremely difficult to balance patients’ right to confidentiality with the needs and requests of their families, and we will study any recommendations that emerge from the coroner’s investigation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Five Year Forward View for Mental Health (10 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: On World Mental Health Day, I can confirm that we are spending £574 million more on mental health this year. It remains our principle that decisions should be made locally by CCGs, but we have very clear expectations of them, and they will be held to account via inspections.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Five Year Forward View for Mental Health (10 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: The right hon. Gentleman has raised an excellent point. Our Green Paper on children and young people’s mental health will address exactly those issues. We have made clear that we will tackle mental health through early intervention, and early intervention for children and young people is central to that.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: End-of-Life Care (10 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: By 2020 we want significantly to improve patient choice in end-of-life care. The Government’s end-of-life care commitment sets out exactly what everyone should expect. In September we published a report on the good progress that we have made over the first year.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: End-of-Life Care (10 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: I thank the hon. Lady for her question, and I know that she, through her role on the all-party parliamentary group for children who need palliative care, will continue to hold me to account on these commitments. We did look at the work undertaken by Together for Short Lives to improve end-of-life care for children, which does require special attention—she is quite right to raise that....

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: End-of-Life Care (10 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: I am of course happy to join my hon. Friend in congratulating those organisations and thank him for all the work that he has done. The 11 pilots launched only last month are very much down to his work and that of hon. Members across the House, who have done so much over the past year to raise awareness of the issue.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: End-of-Life Care (10 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: The hon. Gentleman is quite right: many people would elect to die at home, if the opportunity were available. We need to ensure provision to allow people to do that, if that is their choice, because we should be supporting people to honour their choices at the end of their lives, and it enables us to treat more people in hospitals and hospices.
