Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: NHS: Drugs (7 Oct 2019)

Philippa Whitford: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, who the successful supplier was in the tender for the Express Freight Service.

Brexit Readiness: Operation Yellowhammer (25 Sep 2019)

Philippa Whitford: We are well aware of the impact of high tariffs on agri-foods, but organic farmers and food producers will not be able to export at all until UK certifiers are approved and registered. That will affect food producers in my constituency and across the UK, particularly those who export across the Irish border. Will that be sorted by the end of next month, or will they just have to accept the...

Prorogation (Disclosure of Communications) (9 Sep 2019)

Philippa Whitford: Australia is currently suffering from an appalling flu outbreak, which is worse than any it has seen in many years. The vaccine for under-65s is more complex this year and will not be in place before 31 October. Does the right hon. and learned Gentleman agree that if we have a worse epidemic than in 2017 and do not have the vaccines, which have to be kept chilled, we could grind NHS services...

Uk Shared Prosperity Fund (5 Sep 2019)

Philippa Whitford: Will the Minister give way?

Uk Shared Prosperity Fund (5 Sep 2019)

Philippa Whitford: With the threat of actually being out of the EU in literally a matter of weeks, is not a gap inevitable, given that we are talking about the end of 2021?

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Philippa Whitford: Does my right hon. Friend agree that what we hear from Europe is that there is not actually any proposal on the table from the Government, so there has been no serious negotiation to get a deal, and it is all a fairy tale and a sham?

Leaving the Eu: Preparations (3 Sep 2019)

Philippa Whitford: For the last couple of years, along with the president of the Royal College of Radiologists, I have been raising the issue of radioisotopes. I was ignored and patronised, and then reassured at the beginning of this year that it was all sorted and that they had been flown in. However, on 23 July a new contract was put out to tender with a closing date last week, which means that it is not...

Universal Health Coverage — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (10 Jul 2019)

Philippa Whitford: In the four health systems across the UK, we are trying to address our obsession with hospitals and tertiary centres, realising we have not got enough resources in primary care, and certainly not in prevention. We need to share that knowledge with developing countries.

Universal Health Coverage — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (10 Jul 2019)

Philippa Whitford: It is a pleasure to serve under you, Mr Robertson. I declare an interest in this subject, as I travelled to Ethiopia with RESULTS UK and saw the impact of setting up vaccination services as the initial building blocks towards universal healthcare. I pay tribute to the right hon. Member for North East Bedfordshire (Alistair Burt) for opening this debate and for his work as a DFID Minister. I...

Universal Health Coverage — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (10 Jul 2019)

Philippa Whitford: Should we not also emphasise that vaccines will not work properly on a malnourished child? We need to see these subjects as two sides of the same coin.

NHS Pensions: Taxation (8 Jul 2019)

Philippa Whitford: Tapering lifetime allowances have already driven many senior doctors out of the NHS in their late 50s. The issue now is the tapering annual allowance, which is reduced by £1 for every extra £2 earned. This issue was raised in 2017; it has not just come to light. In May the Chancellor talked about a threshold of £150,000, yet the problem kicks in at £110,000, and many senior consultants...

Backbench Business - Whistleblowingbackbench Business (3 Jul 2019)

Philippa Whitford: It has come out clearly from this debate that PIDA only allows 3% of people to get some redress—it is only some redress—so surely we require legislation that protects the whistleblower right at the start of the process, rather than trying to mop up afterwards?

Backbench Business - Whistleblowingbackbench Business (3 Jul 2019)

Philippa Whitford: I pay tribute to the right hon. Member for North Norfolk (Norman Lamb) for securing and opening this debate, and to the other members of the APPG for their work on this topic. Bristol Royal, Mid Staffordshire, Morecambe Bay, Liverpool, Gosport, Whorlton Hall—all shocking scandals of health and social care. In every one of those scandals, there was a whistleblower years before it came out...

Backbench Business - Whistleblowingbackbench Business (3 Jul 2019)

Philippa Whitford: I thank the hon. and gallant Gentleman for his intervention. As a medic myself, it is clear that we are advised by the General Medical Council, the Royal College of Nursing and various official bodies that we must speak up—that we have a duty to speak up. However, the landscape we look at is littered with broken careers and often broken people. The problem is that whistleblowers think they...

Backbench Business - Whistleblowingbackbench Business (3 Jul 2019)

Philippa Whitford: So small is beautiful after all—that is excellent. The evidence is there; it has been there for years. The problem is that action has not been taken. The Independent National Whistleblowing Officer has already developed, published and is consulting on standards. The standards will look at bullying and harassment—an issue that has come out in NHS Highland—and patient safety issues, and...

Backbench Business - Whistleblowingbackbench Business (3 Jul 2019)

Philippa Whitford: The hon. Gentleman raises financial rewards. Does he think they might make the personal situation for a whistleblower within a workplace worse, because it would be easy to ascribe their actions to their seeking a financial benefit as opposed to genuine altruism?

Backbench Business - Whistleblowingbackbench Business (3 Jul 2019)

Philippa Whitford: Does that not highlight how, whether in finance, the NHS or anywhere else, this happens in situations with a power differential and a hierarchy? Someone has power over someone else and can make them lose their job or lose what they love doing, so there is a constant threat.

Department for Work and Pensions (2 Jul 2019)

Philippa Whitford: Will the Minister give way?

Immigration (26 Jun 2019)

Philippa Whitford: My hon. Friend talks about soft barriers. There has been a 90% drop in nurses coming from the EU, even though they are not obstructed as yet. Is that not a sign that people go elsewhere if they feel unwelcome?

Immigration (26 Jun 2019)

Philippa Whitford: The hon. Gentleman says that there are no differences, except that England has developed an immigration issue because of population growth. The problem is that Scotland has a set population, with a diminishing working-age population. He quotes directors and business, but what about NHS Scotland? We need more people.
