Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Public Inquiry on the Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (24 Jan 2017)

Paula Bradley: I thank the Minister for his statement. I welcome his strong words about independence. The purpose, scope and terms of reference are to restore public confidence in this Government. Following on from the previous question, is the Minister now going to refrain from any further public comment on the issue, barring comment on issues where he has to amend?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Communities: Women in Sport (24 Jan 2017)

Paula Bradley: 9. Ms P Bradley asked the Minister for Communities what plans his Department has to increase the participation of women in sports. (AQO 968/16-21)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Question for Urgent Oral Answer — Health: Bannview Medical Practice (17 Jan 2017)

Paula Bradley: I thank the Minister for her answers thus far. Minister, to say that we are extremely disappointed is an understatement. I do not think that anyone is scaremongering. It is rather disappointing that you continually blame everything on the DUP's arrogance. As one member of this party, I have supported you 100% as Chair of the Health Committee, as we all did on the Health Committee. We...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Food Hygiene Rating (Fee and Fixed Penalty Amount) Order (Northern Ireland) 2016 (6 Dec 2016)

Paula Bradley: On behalf of the Committee for Health, I am pleased to speak very briefly on this order, which sets out certain fees and penalties under the Food Hygiene Rating Act, as the Minister outlined. When considering the Food Hygiene Rating Bill back in 2014-15, the previous Health Committee supported the overarching aim of the Bill to reduce the incidence of food-borne illness through the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: People Diagnosed with HIV (29 Nov 2016)

Paula Bradley: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. I will start by thanking the majority in the Chamber for a very positive and very timely debate, because, as we all know, it is World AIDS Day on Thursday. For the record, I will state that I have supported this charity for a number of years. For a number of years, my party colleague Sammy Douglas and I have run events in this Building on World AIDS Day. That...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Health: Mental Health Waiting Times (15 Nov 2016)

Paula Bradley: I thank the Minister for her answers thus far and Mr Durkan for tabling the urgent oral question. I want to follow up on his question about the community and voluntary sector. I attended the greater Shankill suicide and self-harm reference group meeting in the Hammer community centre in the greater Shankill area. The people there talked about their local community response plan, which...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Health and Wellbeing 2026: Delivering Together and 'Systems, Not Structures: Changing Health and Social Care' (14 Nov 2016)

Paula Bradley: I thank the proposers of both the motion and the amendment, especially the proposer of the amendment on her very positive contribution. It is good to see that. I always think that I am the only optimist in the room; it is good to see that there is more than one here. I also thank her for the amendment because it puts a little bit more meat on the bones of the motion. We will also support...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: October Monitoring (25 Oct 2016)

Paula Bradley: I thank the Minister for his statement. I welcome the money that has gone towards health through the allocations, albeit that we could probably have had a lot more. I am sure that the Minister came to you with many emerging priorities. I want to follow on from what my colleague, the Chair of the Finance Committee, said about the transformation fund. Will the transformation fund be used to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Health and Wellbeing 2026: Delivering Together (25 Oct 2016)

Paula Bradley: I thank the Minister for her statement outlining her vision for Health and Social Care. Your vision is very ambitious, Minister, but I believe that, with consensus in the House, it is achievable. The statement mentions that tough decisions need to be made and refers to the Bengoa criteria. Will the Minister tell the House what process she intends to put in place to involve communities,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Nursing Shortages (24 Oct 2016)

Paula Bradley: I welcome the opportunity to wind up the debate. First , I thank my colleague Sydney Anderson for asking me to put my name to the motion. I was more than happy to. Many Members on our Benches go home to nurses at night-time. I know that many in the Chamber do that. I can hear Mr Poots in the background heckling, and I know what he has to put up with: worse still, I know what she has to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Healthier Lifestyles for Children (11 Oct 2016)

Paula Bradley: Mr Durkan, I think that you look nearly perfect. It is not just obesity that we have to look at; we have to look at the other issues where we have people with eating disorders and issues with emotional and mental health. We know that bullying takes place in our schools, we know that our children are under immense pressure to conform and to be a certain way, and we do not want to see any...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Healthier Lifestyles for Children (11 Oct 2016)

Paula Bradley: I welcome the opportunity to wind up the debate today. I thank my colleague, Carla Lockhart, for asking me to countersign the motion. I also thank Chris Lyttle and Paula Bradshaw for the amendment, which we will also support. I will say at the outset that it is clear from the debate today — this is certainly unanimous — that everyone in the Chamber wants to support some way of tackling...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Healthier Lifestyles for Children (11 Oct 2016)

Paula Bradley: Yes, Carla; I can see that on you. [Laughter.] So maybe I need to declare a little bit of an interest. I was certainly of that generation. I grew up in a family that was not affluent in any way, shape or form — I grew up on a housing estate — but I had a mother who was a wonderful cook, and, even worse, she was a wonderful baker. I was used all my life to eating healthily and having...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Homelessness Strategy 2012-17 (10 Oct 2016)

Paula Bradley: I thank the Minister for her answers so far. We all know about health inequalities, and we discuss that constantly in the Health Committee and in the Chamber. One of the biggest health inequalities is amongst our homeless community. In my area of Belfast, innovative work is being done by health and social care staff. Will the Minister look at that innovative work and maybe roll it out...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Public Petition: Survival of General Practice in Northern Ireland (10 Oct 2016)

Paula Bradley: I welcome the opportunity to bring the petition to the House today. General practice is one of the bedrocks of every community in Northern Ireland and the first point of contact for 90% of health and social care-related needs. However, general practice is now in crisis owing to an excessive workload, a diminishing workforce and inadequate funding. The petition being submitted today has been...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Question for Urgent Oral Answer: Breast Cancer: Urgent Referral Waiting Times (4 Oct 2016)

Paula Bradley: I thank the Minister for her answers thus far, and Mr Durkan for tabling the question. I also welcome the Minister's views on a cancer strategy, which is something that I have been fighting for. I listened to the piece on the radio this morning and heard someone saying that we had been a victim of our own success. In a way that is good news, because people are becoming more aware, but that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Epilepsy Service Provision (3 Oct 2016)

Paula Bradley: I start by also thanking my party colleague George Robinson for tabling the motion and asking me to countersign it. I also thank and pay tribute to the all-party group. I sat on the all-party group in the last mandate and saw at first hand just how conscientious and focused it was in trying to make a difference for people who suffer from epilepsy. The third group I want to thank is our...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Mental Health Champion (28 Jun 2016)

Paula Bradley: I also start by commending the proposers of the debate, and I welcome the opportunity to speak on this issue. I noted without any great surprise that one in four people in Northern Ireland is living with mental ill health, given what we have been through in Northern Ireland in the past decades. I was born in 1969 and am slightly older than you, Mr Butler, but, like you, I was a child of the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Craigavon Area Hospital: Outpatients (21 Jun 2016)

Paula Bradley: I congratulate the Minister on her new role. As Chair of the Health Committee, I look forward to working with her, and I thank her for her answers so far. It is not a popular thing to say, but we have used the independent sector in Northern Ireland health and social care for many years, and it has to play a part in bringing our waiting lists down in the short to medium term. Has there been...
