NHS: Automation - Question (15 Jul 2019)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, while the delivery of automation and AI has much to commend it to the NHS, CyberMDX reported last week that anaesthetic machines can be hacked and controlled from afar, including silencing alarms that would alert anaesthetists to danger. Four months ago in Israel, a cybersecurity firm demonstrated that computer virus malware could add tumours to images of scans. What protections,...

Work Capability Assessment - Statement (4 Jul 2019)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, despite what the Minister said, if all that information is available, why do families not get to see those reports? Take, for example, the Justice for Jodey Whiting campaign. She died in February 2017. She took her own life 15 days after her disability benefits were stopped for missing a work capability assessment, when she was already seriously ill. Her family have repeatedly asked...

NHS: Future UK Trade Deals - Motion to Take Note (4 Jul 2019)

Baroness Brinton: The Minister says that the law was enacted in the UK but only in the sense that we accepted it at the time. I understand from the Government’s insistence on the legislation that needs to go through should Brexit occur that there are various things we need to re-enact specifically in preparation for the date of departure. I had understood that the public procurement directive was one of...

NHS: Future UK Trade Deals - Motion to Take Note (4 Jul 2019)

Baroness Brinton: I too congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Brooke, on securing this important debate, which follows hot on the heels of the progress of what started as the Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill, which I will refer to later. I thought that it might be worth going back to look at the very beginning of the NHS—its embryo stage rather than its birth. One hundred years ago, Lloyd George...

Social Care: Free Personal Care - Question (26 Jun 2019)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords—

Social Care: Free Personal Care - Question (26 Jun 2019)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, the IPPR report also notes that, if health and social care were truly integrated, the NHS could save £1.2 billion a year, rising to £4.5 billion by 2030, by reducing the number of admissions to hospitals and delayed transfers, as well as placing a real focus on funding care in the community. Will the new Green Paper ensure that true integration is fully addressed and that it is...

Railways: Newcastle and Edinburgh - Question (24 Jun 2019)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, in addition to the congestion experienced by passengers on some fast trains from Edinburgh to Newcastle, there is a problem of congestion with luggage that impedes wheelchair users. I had to take that journey around six weeks ago and I could not get off the train at Newcastle without the help of two members of staff moving around eight suitcases. Some of the staff at LNER are...

Carers: Support - Question (17 Jun 2019)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, 160,000 young carers have been assessed and can get support, but it is thought that there are up to 800,000 young carers. Councils have admitted to the Young Carers Trust that they cannot assess these young people at all. Some of them are doing over 50 hours of caring a week. They know that it is impacting their own physical and mental health. A third of young carers drop out of...

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

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, I echo the congratulations to the noble Baroness on her Private Member’s Bill, which takes us considerably further forward than the debate we have had over the past two to three years—indeed, for much longer. For far too long, patients across England have been victims of a system of palliative care that lacks not only consistency but the resources to help them. Currently there...

Unpaid Carers: Support - Question (13 Jun 2019)

Baroness Brinton: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to ensure that unpaid carers receive the support to which they are entitled.

Unpaid Carers: Support - Question (13 Jun 2019)

Baroness Brinton: I thank the Minister for her Answer. As Carers Week draws to a close, I point out that we owe a great debt of gratitude to the 6.5 million carers in the country who save us more than £100 billion a year, given the costs that we would otherwise have to bear. The problem is that nearly three-quarters of those carers say that they suffer mental health stress as a result of their caring duties,...

Victims of Domestic Violence and Abuse - Motion to Take Note (6 Jun 2019)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, I declare an interest as co-chair of the APPG on Victims of Crime. Members of your Lordships’ House may know that I also have a Private Member’s Bill sitting in the queue, on the rights and entitlements of victims of crime. I hope it might achieve a Second Reading at some point in the next year. I echo the congratulations to the noble Baroness, Lady Newlove, on securing this...

NHS: Bullying - Question (5 Jun 2019)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, in addition to the figures cited by the Minister at the beginning of this Question, it has also been revealed that a number of hospital trusts still use non-disclosure agreements effectively to gag people when there has been a resolution to an incident. What guidance do the Government provide to NHS England to ensure that so-called gagging clauses are used only on sensitive matters,...

Suicide Act 1961: Prosecutions - Question (23 May 2019)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, many families do not have access to Dignitas. Indeed, before it was available, a family friend of ours waited until his wife was away for two days before killing himself because he was very worried that the police might take action. The DPP guidance states: “A prosecution is less likely if the person made a voluntary, informed decision to end their life, and if the assister was...

Social Care: Green Paper - Question (13 May 2019)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, in 2009 there was a proposal that we should all work together, cross-party, for social care, started by the then Labour Government. All three major parties signed up to it, and then one party withdrew, making it undeliverable—it was neither the Labour Party nor the Liberal Democrats. The Minister said all the warm words that we want to hear about support for health and social...
