Health and Care Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 59 (20 Jan 2022)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, I rise briefly to support this suite of amendments put forward by the noble Lord, Lord Howarth. I know how passionate he feels about this issue and how much work he has done in this area over many years. The noble Baroness, Lady Morris, has just taken the words right out of my mouth; I was going to start by saying that social prescribing is a phenomenon whose time has come. I think...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 50 (20 Jan 2022)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, I support Amendment 101B in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Layard. Before I speak to it, I want to say how much I agree with the sentiment expressed by noble Lords on all Benches that true integration will be achieved only if the Bill is as much about social care as it is about health. It is such a fundamental point that I wanted to underline it. I see Amendment 101B as an...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 42 (18 Jan 2022)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, I support this group of amendments in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Hunt. My name is attached to Amendment 149, but I want to talk more generally about this group. Like the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, I am very supportive of the work of Healthwatch, at both national and local level. It provides very helpful and important insights about what it is like to be at the receiving end of our...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 20 (18 Jan 2022)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: I rise to speak to Amendments 51, 98, 141, 151 and 162 in my name and, briefly, the other amendment to which my name is attached. I shall make one opening remark. This group is all about children and young people. I know that all noble Lords feel very strongly about this issue. Children and young people make up 30% of the population but are not mentioned anywhere in the Bill. Amendment 51...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 18 (13 Jan 2022)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, I shall speak very briefly to Amendment 38 in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Bradley. I have huge sympathy with the intention behind this amendment. Everything that we have talked about so far on mental health has pointed to the fact that unless there is a strong mental health voice on ICBs, the whole issue of mental health funding and the priority it has will not get as strong a...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 11 (13 Jan 2022)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, my name is attached to six amendments in this extremely important group. I should like first to turn to Amendment 14 in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Thornton, to which my name is attached. Other noble Lords have expressed support for amending the triple aim to explicitly include health inequalities, and I add my voice to that call. The examples given by the noble Lord, Lord...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (Day 1): Amendment 5 (11 Jan 2022)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, I rise to speak to the rather large list of amendments in this group—15 at the last count—to which my name is attached. I declare my interests as laid out in the register, particularly my new registered interest as a non-executive director of the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust. Before turning to specific amendments, I have a couple of general points which apply across...

Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) (Amendment) (Coronavirus) (No. 2) Regulations 2021 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (14 Dec 2021)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, I wish to make some comments about the actual substance of this statutory instrument, although I will start by saying that I have a lot of sympathy with what has already been said about the lack of proper parliamentary scrutiny and indeed the lack of an impact assessment, which is extremely regrettable. As I have said in your Lordships’ House before, I am very sympathetic to the...

Health and Care Bill - Second Reading (7 Dec 2021)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, it is a privilege to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Campbell. I want to congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Stevens, on his quite outstanding maiden speech. Overall, I welcome the shift away from competition to greater collaboration and integration in our complex health and social care sector that this Bill signals, but, like others, I am very concerned about the timing of this...

Adult Social Care - Statement (2 Dec 2021)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, I would like to pursue the points that were raised a minute ago by the noble Baronesses, Lady Fox and Lady Watkins. Despite the welcome long-term aspirations in the White Paper, the reality is that the chronic workforce shortages in social care are getting worse, with uncompetitive pay being the main culprit. If Covid surges this winter because of the new variant, these workforce...

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Wearing of Face Coverings) (England) Regulations 2021 - Motion to Approve (1 Dec 2021)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, I would like to make a few comments about the mask-wearing regulations, which I strongly support while feeling that wearing masks should never have been abandoned in England. It is with great sadness that I have to tell the noble Lord, Lord Robathan, that at exactly this time last year I attended the funeral of a friend of mine, the exact same age as me, who died from Covid. I...

Ambulance Response Times - Question (1 Dec 2021)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, it is estimated that nationally, a quarter of patients in beds are clinically ready to leave hospital but cannot do so due to problems of discharge—particularly a lack of available care in the community. With fewer available beds, ambulances cannot discharge patients to a bed, leading to a lack of ambulances and paramedics available to deal with other emergencies. What plans do...

Covid-19 Update - Statement (29 Nov 2021)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: The new requirements are for all travellers arriving in the country to take a PCR test on or before day two and to self-isolate until they have received a negative test. However, on the government website today, it says that if someone has tested positive with a PCR, they should not be tested again using either a PCR or lateral flow test for 90 days, unless they have developed new symptoms....

NHS England: Waiting Lists - Question (16 Nov 2021)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, does the Minister agree that the fundamental problem confronting the NHS is a lack of spare capacity and resilience? This means that the NHS is continuously running at unsustainably hot levels of bed occupancy. The UK has 2.7 hospital beds per 1,000 population compared to an EU average of 5.2, and significantly fewer doctors and nurses. What plans do the Government have to urgently...

Covid-19 - Statement (15 Nov 2021)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, I thank the Minister for repeating the Statement. At this afternoon’s No. 10 press conference, Professor Chris Whitty made it very clear that doctors and scientists are increasingly concerned about the average of 37,500 cases over the last week and the high number of Covid cases in hospitals. Professor Whitty said that it would be a tough winter and added that, in addition to the...

Levelling Up White Paper - Question (15 Nov 2021)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, does the Minister agree that financial inclusion—that is, ensuring that people have access to essential banking services and financial products that are fairly priced—is particularly important for areas that the Government are looking to level up, and that incorporating a clear financial inclusion strategy into the levelling-up agenda could make a big difference? Can the...

UK Cash Network - Question (8 Nov 2021)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, following on from the questions from the noble Lords, Lord Hunt and Lord Tunnicliffe, will the Government commit to giving the Financial Conduct Authority responsibility to start tracking trends in cash acceptance levels among UK businesses to help understand what action might be required to prevent that problem worsening? Separate from the legislation—it will be great to get a...

Net Zero: Social Market Foundation Report - Question (1 Nov 2021)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, local authorities are critical to achieving the Government’s net-zero target, but will struggle to do so without sufficient resources. Some 95% of local authorities have said that funding is a barrier to them tackling climate change. The Climate Change Committee recommended increased resourcing for local government as a priority. Can the Minister say whether and when the...

Social Care - Question (27 Oct 2021)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, £1 in every £12 spent by local authorities on social care goes towards funding mental health social care, supporting people of all ages who live with severe mental illness, and their carers. Can the Minister say what proportion of the planned levy will be used to fund mental health social care, which provides such a lifeline to all those affected?

Social Care in England - Motion to Take Note (14 Oct 2021)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Pitkeathley, on her excellent opening speech. It is a privilege to follow her. We debate social care today at a time when, after years in the shadows, the crisis that is social care is no longer hidden from view but at last has come into stark public and political focus. What has changed? First, as we have heard, the pandemic has cruelly...
