Health: Tick-borne Encephalitis - Question (5 Nov 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, raising awareness is critical, and many are completely unaware of the risk when they go out for a walk. What actions will the Government take to ensure that organisations such as national parks, national forests and the National Trust have a part to play?

National Health Service: Pensions Tax - Question (30 Oct 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, the noble Baroness will be aware that the royal colleges are all sounding alarm bells, and she is probably also aware that all our doctors serving in the Armed Forces are affected by exactly the same tax hits. The whole NHS workforce is in crisis and we really cannot afford to lose highly trained clinicians. The problem has been known to the department for some considerable time....

Health Service Safety Investigations Bill [HL] - Second Reading (29 Oct 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, this has been an excellent debate. The noble and learned Lord, Lord Hope of Craighead, has just mentioned the issue of no blame, a theme that has run all the way through the debate. It started with the noble Lord, Lord Hunt of Kings Heath, talking about James Titcombe, who lost a child at Morecambe Bay Hospital and is insistent that there can be no learning from blame. This was...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (22 Oct 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, I refer to my interests in the register. I am going to be talking about Bills and what I call missing measures—or perhaps that is my wish list. We welcome the healthcare Bills in the Queen’s Speech. The Health Service Safety Investigations Bill seems sensible, and I look forward to a departmental briefing before Second Reading. The Mental Health Act was passed in 1983 and...

NHS: Babylon’s GP at Hand App - Question (21 Oct 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, how confident is the department that NHS England is ready to deal with the addition of a new model of access to GP services? Does the Minister have a view on whether legislation would be required to achieve this?

Psychiatrists - Question (21 Oct 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, the Minister has referred to the mix of psychiatrists and psychiatric nurses who support children. If the Government’s plans are carried out, by when should every part of the country be covered to an acceptable and safe level?

Brexit: Medicine Supply and NHS Staffing - Question (5 Sep 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, what proportion of our pharmaceuticals are manufactured in the UK? Have Brexit deal negotiators discussed pharmaceutical supplies and, if so, what was the outcome? How many people will be immediately affected if a no-deal Brexit is the final outcome?

Sexually Transmitted Infections: England - Question (5 Sep 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, as the noble Lord, Lord Black, said, there is good news. Walking into the House this morning through Lambeth, I saw posters telling us that HIV is on the way out, but to be aware of STIs. What proportion of the Chancellor’s money announced yesterday will be allocated to local authorities delivering public health and what guidance is given to local authorities on developing sexual...

Personal Healthcare Budgets: Sheffield - Question (4 Sep 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, personal healthcare budgets and payments from the Independent Living Fund can offer an individual freedom and choice, but will the Minister tell the House what advocacy support accompanies these payments, so that members of the public can be well informed and choose the best providers for their needs?

NHS: Dentistry Services - Motion to Take Note (25 Jul 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, this has been a really interesting debate and—not always unusually for your Lordships’ House—very well informed. The noble Baroness, Lady Gardner of Parkes, who must have been a really inspiring role model as a young dentist, set the tone for the debate and painted a clear picture of dentistry in the past. To add to her point about having all your teeth extracted because it...

Adult Social Care - Question (25 Jul 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, the sustainability of adult social care is at severe and immediate risk. We too welcome the Prime Minister’s words yesterday. Could the Minister confirm that he will commit to continuing with the precept, and the social care grant or the improved better care fund after 2019-20? Otherwise, how can councils plan their finances for 2020-21? What assurances do councils have that any...

NHS Pensions: Taxation - Private Notice Question (9 Jul 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, the Nuffield Trust found that two-thirds of GPs are retiring early for tax reasons, and because of burnout, the level of extra training required and stress. The Secretary of State is reported as saying that this tax issue is the area that concerns him most about the GP workforce—and well he might worry. Given the Minister’s earlier reply to the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay, when...

Mental Illness: Job Security and Inequality - Question for Short Debate (4 Jul 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, this has been a varied debate with interesting contributions: the noble Baroness, Lady Redfern, talked about the criminal justice system and how all this fits in; the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of St Albans talked about discrimination and how wearing that can be, as well as the importance of work at the end of life and the TUC voluntary charter; and the noble Baroness, Lady...

National Health Service: Bullying - Question (3 Jul 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, as we have heard, levels of abuse and bullying are unacceptably high in the NHS, and whistleblowing is not a universally trusted or successful route to resolution. The Scottish Parliament is investigating using the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman to investigate unresolved NHS whistleblowing cases. Does the Minister consider the use of the English Parliamentary and Health Service...

GP Services in Rural Areas - Question (2 Jul 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, I live in a very rural part of Cornwall. My GP practice is 18 miles away. It struggles to recruit GPs and then to keep them. The proportion of the English population who live in rural areas is 19%—the equivalent of the population of London. Can the Minister explain why very few NHS plans consider rurality, with its high levels of deprivation and loneliness and their associated...

NHS Long-term Plan - Statement (1 Jul 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, I too thank the Minister for reading the Statement. I feel I should get out an orange flag—I am probably wearing the right colour—because, in the 1940s, Liberals were orange, not a yellowish colour. Beveridge, whose paper proposed the National Health Service, was indeed a Liberal and his proposal was for a service, “free at the point of need”. Anyway, I will get back to the...

Folic Acid - Question (18 Jun 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, I too am delighted that the consultation has finally been announced, and that many royal colleges have come straight out and welcomed the move. I join others in applauding the tireless work of the noble Lord, Lord Rooker, in this instance. What will the Minister’s department do to inform the public that the consultation will take place, and what efforts will it make to reach...

Access to Palliative Care Bill [HL] - Second Reading (14 Jun 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, I too am grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay, for introducing this Bill. I know that it is an issue close to her heart and one on which she speaks with unparalleled authority. I thank her also for the useful briefing that many of us received last week. She has my complete support. We have heard compelling arguments from around the House in support of the Bill. One or two...

National Health Service Commissioning Board and Clinical Commissioning Groups (Responsibilities and Standing Rules) (Amendment) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Regret (10 Jun 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, I share some of the concerns expressed by the noble Baroness, Lady Thornton—she has dug out a few that I have not mentioned or even thought of. Many of us here will have had friends or family in receipt of this funding. My mother received it towards the end of her life. By way of clarification, can the Minister confirm whether FNC is funded in the same way as end-of-life care? If...

National Health Service Commissioning Board and Clinical Commissioning Groups (Responsibilities and Standing Rules) (Amendment) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Regret (10 Jun 2019)

Baroness Jolly: My noble friend makes a very good point. The majority of people who work in the sector are care workers on the basic minimum wage, or something related to that. What we are discussing this evening is nursing care which will be paid at a union rate; nevertheless, it is stretching the sector. The Minister knows about the shortage of nurses, and the noble Baroness, Lady Thornton, spoke about the...
