Yemen: Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement (10 Sep 2018)

Philippa Whitford: Does the hon. Gentleman recognise that settled status does not confer exactly the same rights that those people have at the moment?

Yemen: Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement (10 Sep 2018)

Philippa Whitford: Does the hon. Gentleman recognise that the initial settled status offer meant that a European citizen who went abroad to work for two years would lose that status? The period has now been extended to five years, but that is not what applies to a British citizen.

Yemen: Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement (10 Sep 2018)

Philippa Whitford: The hon. Gentleman mentioned staying in the single market and customs union. Has he discussed that with his party’s Front Benchers, and has he managed to convince them that staying in the single market would be a good idea?

Yemen: Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement (10 Sep 2018)

Philippa Whitford: The hon. Gentleman mentioned the single market. That is not part of the six tests of the Front Bench of the Labour party.

Yemen: Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement (10 Sep 2018)

Philippa Whitford: I would have thought that when someone leaves the bar in the golf club, they pay their tab before they go. That is what the £39 billion is; it is not shopping for a trade deal. If the right hon. Gentleman is suggesting that no deal is better, so as not to pay the £39 billion, I would be interested to hear what he thinks will happen to the EU citizens who have settled here and to...

Yemen: Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement (10 Sep 2018)

Philippa Whitford: It was the right hon. Gentleman’s colleagues sitting on the same Benches who talked about EU citizens as bargaining chips and playing cards. One of them stated in the newspapers only recently that EU citizens would not be allowed to stay—someone not very far away from him at all.

Yemen: Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement (10 Sep 2018)

Philippa Whitford: Is the problem with the people’s vote not the talk about having a vote on the deal but the fact that if the vote involves the same Hobson’s choice that we will get here—a rubbish deal or no deal—it will not help to put that to the people? If there is no option in that vote to not do this, that will give it a false legitimacy and actually weaken the fight against...

Integrated Care — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (6 Sep 2018)

Philippa Whitford: Can the Minister able commit to looking at legislative change? It is fine for designs to come from the NHS, but if those designs are based on existing barriers, they will not reach their full potential.

Integrated Care — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (6 Sep 2018)

Philippa Whitford: The Minister says that that is unlikely and that private firms do not want to run such contracts, but we are talking about a 10-year plan. Does he therefore recognise that it should be ruled out to give surety? We do not want another Hinchingbrooke, where a private company takes a contract on and an entire area faces a private provider walking away from an integrated care partnership.

Integrated Care — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (6 Sep 2018)

Philippa Whitford: I, too, welcome the opening speech of the hon. Member for Totnes (Dr Wollaston), who is a superb Chair of the Committee. The marketisation in NHS England goes back more than 30 years—it has certainly been happening for most of my career. It started with terms such as “resource management”, and in 1990 the internal market—the purchaser-provider split—was...

Integrated Care — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (6 Sep 2018)

Philippa Whitford: It is not a particularly formal term. I simply mean that there has been a tendency to think that, because community hospitals cannot provide the full range of acute healthcare, they have no place, whereas someone might require only a low-level of in-patient care, such as an elderly person who has a urine infection and lives on their own may need intravenous antibiotics, fluids or extra care....

Integrated Care — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (6 Sep 2018)

Philippa Whitford: That is exactly what we have in Scotland—it was introduced in legislation in 2014, and all areas were up and running by the beginning of 2016. More than 60% of the budget goes to what are called integrated joint boards, which use innovative solutions to deal with all sorts of local groups to try to prevent people who do not need to be in hospital from ending up there, and to try to...

Integrated Care — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (6 Sep 2018)

Philippa Whitford: That is fine in one place with good leadership and good relationships, but if things got tight it would be very difficult for one chief executive to accept the failure of their budget in order to keep the whole system going. Legislative change is crucial, towards more per-capita funding and away from tariffs, and towards more area organisation of that integrated care partnership. Reform of...

Integrated Care — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (6 Sep 2018)

Philippa Whitford: I am glad that the hon. Gentleman has highlighted that problem, which we have been seeing for literally decades. Early adopters are well resourced and well supported and have the ear of the health board or the Government, but during roll-out, all the people who did not have that experience are told to do it out of existing budgets, and it fails.

Integrated Care — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (6 Sep 2018)

Philippa Whitford: I am grateful to the Chair of the Committee for giving way. Does she agree that when there is an attempt to elicit change through turning off the financial tap, what happens in fact is that people cut what they think is easiest to cut, which is often the most innovative solution, rather than step back with a clear head to consider where they want to get to in the end? Does she also agree that...

Brexit Negotiations and No Deal Contingency Planning (4 Sep 2018)

Philippa Whitford: The Brexit Secretary naturally talks about the facilitated customs arrangement as central to the Chequers deal, and people have talked about Michel Barnier ruling that out. However, having accepted new clause 36 to the Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill, is it not the Government who have ridden a coach and horses through Chequers?

Health and Social Care: Leaving the EU (24 Jul 2018)

Philippa Whitford: I too welcome the Secretary of State to his place. Membership of the European Medicines Agency has enabled early access to new drugs for UK patients through a single Europe-wide licensing system for a population of 500 million. Can the Minister clarify whether it is still the Government’s intention to remain a member of the EMA, and perhaps explain why on earth they voted against the...

Health and Social Care: Leaving the EU (24 Jul 2018)

Philippa Whitford: It is still rather hard to understand why the Government voted against it in the first place. There is no current associate membership of the EMA for the UK to re-join as a third country, so if it is not possible to stay in the EMA what is the plan to avoid delays of up to a year in the licensing of new drugs for UK patients?

NHS Whistleblowers (18 Jul 2018)

Philippa Whitford: I appreciate how consensual the debate has been, and I hope the Minister recognises the points raised. As was mentioned, NHS structures will be different in each of the four nations, but PIDA sits above that. Perhaps, in trying to work together to tackle those differences, we can also share good practice from each country that sits within the NHS. We simply cannot go on as we are, because...

NHS Whistleblowers (18 Jul 2018)

Philippa Whitford: The Minister mentions prescribed persons. The fact that Members are also prescribed persons shows how difficult and confusing it can be for whistleblowers to know where they should go. I suggest it would be difficult and confusing for an MP to know what to do with such information and where to go. I recognise that the NHS, as one of the major generators of these cases, perhaps needs its own...
