Princess Royal Hospital, Telford (5 Nov 2019)

Lucy Allan: In my constituency, there is concern as to what “A&E local” means. I am aware that there is 24/7 walk-in, which is fantastic, although most of my constituents do not know that, but will “A&E local” be defined in more detail? I have not yet received the letter, so will the Minister enlighten me and my constituents?

Princess Royal Hospital, Telford (5 Nov 2019)

Lucy Allan: I am very grateful indeed to hear the Minister’s comments and, in particular, to see some movement—a shift indicating that we are being listened to and that Telford is not being ignored. I am grateful for that development and progress. As the Minister will understand, I may well continue to push for further progress, but it is a step in the right direction and I am grateful for it.

Princess Royal Hospital, Telford (5 Nov 2019)

Lucy Allan: Will the Minister confirm that that winter capital funding is for this winter and an extra 20-bed ward?

Princess Royal Hospital, Telford (5 Nov 2019)

Lucy Allan: I beg to move, That this House has considered Princess Royal Hospital, Telford. It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Betts. Last week the Leader of the House, my right hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset (Mr Rees-Mogg), said: “Our main purpose as Members of Parliament is to seek redress of grievance for our constituents”.—[Official Report, 31 October...

Princess Royal Hospital, Telford (5 Nov 2019)

Lucy Allan: My right hon. Friend is one of my dearest friends and I would be delighted to give way.

Princess Royal Hospital, Telford (5 Nov 2019)

Lucy Allan: As a former hospitals Minister and long-serving Member of Parliament for the area, my right hon. Friend has a great level of expertise on this subject. He makes some excellent points, some of which I agree with. We are very fortunate that £312 million of Government money is being invested in the area, but I want my constituents to benefit from that, which is why we are having this debate. If...

Points of Order (28 Oct 2019)

Lucy Allan: rose—

Points of Order (28 Oct 2019)

Lucy Allan: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. We all come to this place to fight for our constituents. From the very first day, I have used every avenue afforded to me to fight to keep A&E and women and children’s services in Telford. I have had 25 parliamentary questions, six parliamentary debates, 15 meetings with Ministers and 29 letters. Is it in order for the Secretary of State for Health and...

Speaker’s Statement: The National Health Service (23 Oct 2019)

Lucy Allan: It is a privilege to speak in this debate. I particularly want to pay tribute to the hon. Member for East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow (Dr Cameron), because if we could all speak about this issue in the way that she did, we would have a much more constructive and productive debate. We have spent so long in this place listening to the same people talking about Brexit, dominating the...

Speaker’s Statement: The National Health Service (23 Oct 2019)

Lucy Allan: Will the hon. Lady give way?

The National Health Service (23 Oct 2019)

Lucy Allan: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for giving way, and for coming to Telford to have a look at the women and children’s unit. However, six months later, he signed off an approval to have it closed. It is galling to hear about all the “goodies for all” that are being distributed, but unfortunately not for Telford. I would like to invite him to come back and listen to the people of...

Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Oct 2019)

Lucy Allan: Telford needs its A&E and its women and children’s centre. The town will have a population of 200,000 within the next 10 years. It is a new town—a former mining town—with pockets of deprivation and poor health outcomes and, while funding is being pumped into the affluent county town of Shrewsbury some 20 miles away, Telford is losing vital services. Will my right hon. Friend reverse the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Assisted Dying (8 Oct 2019)

Lucy Allan: Parliament is out of step with the people on this issue—90% of the UK population believe that assisted dying should be legalised. Shropshire man Noel Conway recently had his case turned down in the Supreme Court, which believed that it was a matter for Parliament to decide. Does the Minister agree that Parliament must look at this issue once again, because it is not right for us to decide...

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (4 Sep 2019)

Lucy Allan: I warmly welcome the Prime Minister to his place. My constituents sent me here to speak for them, and what they care about is better hospital care, more police on our streets, and good schools for their children. Does the Prime Minister agree with people in Telford that those are the issues we should be discussing in this place? Will he commit to building on his welcome spending announcements...

Sure Start: Ifs Report (5 Jun 2019)

Lucy Allan: I, too, pay tribute to the hon. Member for Manchester Central (Lucy Powell) for her excellent and long-standing work on early years, and I very much enjoy being a member of the Education Committee alongside her. With increasing numbers of children being taken into care, what is the Minister doing to help the most vulnerable families to stay safely together?

Interim NHS People Plan (5 Jun 2019)

Lucy Allan: I welcome very much this initiative, and I am delighted by all that has been said. The chief executive officer of Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital announced his departure on Monday, following a catalogue of failings. Despite these failings, formal complaints to Dido Harding and others and a series of calls for his dismissal, the CEO has apparently resigned of his own volition to take up...

Health Inequalities (20 Mar 2019)

Lucy Allan: I thank all Members for participating in the debate this afternoon. I am grateful to have heard not only their contributions but their passion for the subject, which I share. The Minister has been very kind in making a commitment to transparency and better communication by decision makers when it comes to major changes in local areas, and I will hold her to that commitment. Health inequality...

Health Inequalities (20 Mar 2019)

Lucy Allan: I beg to move, That this House has considered legal duties on the Secretary of State to reduce health inequalities. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone, and I am delighted to have secured this debate and to raise this important issue. In 2016, the Health Committee Chair, the hon. Member for Totnes (Dr Wollaston), led a thoughtful and important debate on this...

Health Inequalities (20 Mar 2019)

Lucy Allan: I thank my hon. Friend for his intervention, and I am aware of the position he sets out. He is absolutely right; these problems are happening elsewhere with the combination of CCGs coming together and not being able to meet the needs of the individual areas that are receiving the funding. In Telford, the local hospital trust serving both Telford and Shropshire announced in January, after five...
