Stroke Services (5 Dec 2017)

Maggie Throup: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Stroke Services (5 Dec 2017)

Maggie Throup: I have heard first-hand stories about the impact of mechanical thrombectomy and just how fantastic a treatment it is. It can enable people who might have had lifelong disabilities to lead normal lives. I gather it is being rolled out throughout the NHS through specialised commissioning, but does my hon. Friend agree that the roll-out needs to be speeded up, and that we need more people in...

Stroke Services (5 Dec 2017)

Maggie Throup: My hon. Friend is being very generous with his time. He has hit the nail on the head: the treatment is very specialist and is carried out by surgeons and neurologists who are not normally there to treat stroke victims. The change in the way in which stroke centres work has been fantastic. Stroke services have been centralised, but we need to go a step further and to make sure that we get the...

NHS Continuing Care (27 Nov 2017)

Maggie Throup: In my experience, this depends not just on the postcode, but on how the referral is made. If a referral is made through a hospice, the process is clear and transparent, but with other mechanisms, it is more smoke and mirrors.

NHS Continuing Care (27 Nov 2017)

Maggie Throup: The right hon. Gentleman is very generous. He makes a strong case, but sometimes people’s healthcare needs are so great that it is impractical for them to be looked after in their own homes, so things are not quite as cut and dry as he is indicating.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

Maggie Throup: I am pleased to be able to contribute to tonight’s debate on the Budget. I want to highlight three main areas: the support for electric vehicles; the additional funding for STPs—sustainability and transformation partnerships—and the NHS; and the funding for HS2 infrastructure. First, I welcome the Government’s ambition for the UK to be world leader in electric cars,...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

Maggie Throup: No, because I am short of time. Secondly, on health and social care, I, like other Conservative Members, welcome the £2.8 billion of additional resource funding for the NHS in England. I was saddened by the comments of the hon. Members for City of Durham (Dr Blackman-Woods) and for Chesterfield (Toby Perkins), who are no longer in their places, and the hon. Member for York Central...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Lung Disease (14 Nov 2017)

Maggie Throup: What plans his Department has to improve care for people with lung disease.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Lung Disease (14 Nov 2017)

Maggie Throup: I thank the Minister for that answer, but I think that more probably still needs to be done. Last month, I launched the British Lung Foundation’s latest report into idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Delayed access to diagnosis, support services and care is still commonplace for people with IPF and other lung conditions. Will the Minister agree to meet me and the British Lung Foundation,...

Children’s Oral Health — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (31 Oct 2017)

Maggie Throup: It is a pleasure to share my thoughts and experiences under your chairmanship, Mr Bone. I congratulate the hon. Member for Birmingham, Selly Oak (Steve McCabe) on securing this debate. As he said, it is Sugar Awareness Week, so this debate on tooth decay is timely. It is well recognised and accepted that the amount of sugar that children eat has an impact on both oral health and obesity...

Modern Slavery Act 2015 (26 Oct 2017)

Maggie Throup: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Bristol East (Kerry McCarthy), who made some excellent points. I also want to pay tribute to my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister for her dedication when Home Secretary in starting to rid our nation of the evil practice of modern slavery and leading the way globally through the legislation she introduced. The UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 is...

Social Care (25 Oct 2017)

Maggie Throup: It is a pleasure to follow my fellow east midlands MP, the hon. Member for Leicester West (Liz Kendall). Like many Members from across the House, I was compelled to speak in today’s debate because of my personal experience with the social care system, and because of my deep respect for all who work in it and contribute to it. For five years, my father has been in the care of a nursing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (16 Oct 2017)

Maggie Throup: Following a spate of vehicle thefts in my constituency, would my right hon. Friend take action to ban the online sale of devices that are helping criminals to steal high-value vehicles by bypassing security coding and reprogramming onboard computer systems?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Oct 2017)

Maggie Throup: HS2 Ltd continues to fail my constituents living along the line of route for HS2, with some being offered tens of thousands of pounds less than the true value of their homes. Will the Prime Minister now personally intervene to ensure that my residents living in the affected areas of Erewash do not lose out as a result of this major national infrastructure project?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: End-of-Life Care (10 Oct 2017)

Maggie Throup: Hospices, such as Treetops Hospice Care in my constituency, provide outstanding end-of-life care. Although these services benefit from generous charitable donations that enable them to operate on a day-to-day basis, what more can the Government do to help support hospices when capital investment is needed to improve the current setting of new build?

Petition - Changes to the Number 23 Bus Route, Erewash (11 Sep 2017)

Maggie Throup: I rise on behalf of residents in my constituency, and in particular those living in Cotmanhay and Kirk Hallam, who have been adversely affected by recent changes to the No. 23 bus route operated by trentbarton. The petition has been signed by nearly 300 local residents, and I am delighted to present it to the House this evening for consideration. The petition declares: The petition of...

International Day of Democracy: HS2: Phase 2b Route (Manchester and Leeds) (6 Sep 2017)

Maggie Throup: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Eddisbury (Antoinette Sandbach) on securing this important debate. We have already heard some of the complexities of the issue. Like the right hon. Member for Rother Valley (Sir Kevin Barron), I have been supportive of HS2 in principle; but the more things go on, the more we start to wonder whether it is worth all the stress and uncertainty for...
