Scottish Parliament: Specialist Mental Health Support (Children and Young People) (25 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: The Scottish Government is committed to ensuring that children and young people get access to the mental health support that they need, and recognises the distress that is caused to children, young people and their families by any delay in accessing mental health support. Children and young people are a particular focus in the suicide prevention action plan that was published in August 2018....

Scottish Parliament: Specialist Mental Health Support (Children and Young People) (25 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: Long waits for CAMHS treatment and support are unacceptable, which is why we set out in the 2018 programme for government a £250 million package of measures to support positive mental health and prevent mental ill health. We also formed the children and young people’s mental health task force, and its delivery plan was published at the end of December. Next month, it will publish its...

Scottish Parliament: Specialist Mental Health Support (Children and Young People) (25 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: At the end of March, 26,740 children and young people were under the care of CAMHS services across Scotland. That is a testament to the amount of work that the CAMHS staff do in supporting children and young people at a time when they are feeling particularly vulnerable. However, there is much more for us to do. That is why I am looking forward to the recommendations from the children and...

Scottish Parliament: Specialist Mental Health Support (Children and Young People) (25 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: We are reporting quarterly on the additional workers under action 15 of the mental health strategy. The most recent figures were published in May and further figures will be published in August. We are certainly keeping close track of those. We are working hard with our colleagues in health boards and integration joint boards to ensure that we get the workers in those key target areas as...

Scottish Parliament: Beauty Industry (Regulation) (20 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: Independent clinics were brought within the regulation of Healthcare Improvement Scotland on 1 April 2016. The policy was to ensure that certain healthcare professionals who are working independently of the NHS do so in a clinic that is registered with Healthcare Improvement Scotland. That work puts Scotland at the forefront of regulating independent private healthcare, mainly in the cosmetic...

Scottish Parliament: Beauty Industry (Regulation) (20 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: Mr Torrance brings an important point to the chamber. Anyone who is considering undergoing such a treatment should always use a regulated provider, details of which are available on the Healthcare Improvement Scotland website. Unregulated providers will not appear on that list, nor will they have any HIS-accredited literature to prove their competence. We also urge consumers to carry out due...

Scottish Parliament: Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services Waiting Times (Lothian) (20 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: Through the mental health access improvement support programme, between 2016-17 and 2019-20, NHS Lothian is scheduled to receive an additional £4.7 million from the Scottish Government to support mental health workforce development and capacity building. The director for mental health has written to NHS Lothian, seeking reassurance about the approach that is being taken to address long waits...

Scottish Parliament: Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services Waiting Times (Lothian) (20 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: Long waits for child and adolescent mental health services and support are unacceptable; I have said that on more than one occasion in this chamber. The Scottish Government expects all health boards to meet and sustain performance against mental health waiting time targets. To help to achieve that ambition, our 2018-19 programme for government outlines a package of measures that are supported...

Scottish Parliament: Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services Waiting Times (Lothian) (20 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: All boards now have in place improvement plans for CAMHS and psychological therapies, supported by the mental health access improvement team, with milestones to meet over the next two years. The Scottish Government is working with health boards, including in Lothian and Fife, to agree their annual operating plans, which include how they will meet those standards.

Scottish Parliament: Drumwealth Games (Health Impact) (20 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: First, I would like to congratulate everyone who is involved in the Drumwealth games, now in their seventh year, which are a great legacy of the Commonwealth games in 2014. Being physically active is one of the very best things that we can do for our physical and mental health. The Drumwealth games are testament to what can be achieved through partnerships between schools and clubs, with...

Scottish Parliament: Drumwealth Games (Health Impact) (20 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: Yes, I do. That is why programmes such as the active schools programme offer more than 100 different activities, ranging from football to dance and movement, which gives children the opportunity to be active and take part in the activities that they enjoy. While I was deputy convener of the Health and Sport Committee, I was fortunate enough to visit the Drumchapel community sport hub. I was...

Scottish Parliament: Children and Young People (Health-harming Products) (19 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: I am pleased to close for the Government this evening. I commend Kenneth Gibson for lodging the motion and highlighting the importance of protecting our young people from alcohol advertising. I also add my thanks to the cross-party group for its important work. I will set out the distinct challenges that we face in Scotland. Since the 1980s, we have seen substantially increased alcohol...

Scottish Parliament: Children and Young People (Health-harming Products) (19 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: I am not clear on whether we are able to do that. Having heard the chief medical officer talk about the issue this morning, I understand that the report includes the very first figures on minimum unit pricing, and we will certainly have to compare data year on year. I am pretty sure that more figures are coming out in September. If that is incorrect—the member will be aware that I am...

Scottish Parliament: First Responders (Trauma Recovery and Support) (6 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: For clarification, I point out that, obviously, the NHS has a duty of care to its staff and it has in-house counselling services that staff can access, on a confidential basis, through the occupational health service.

Scottish Parliament: First Responders (Trauma Recovery and Support) (6 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: I am pleased to respond on behalf of the Government. I thank Alex Cole-Hamilton for securing this important debate, and I thank Janice Malone for bravely sharing her story. Janice is one of my constituents, and I had the pleasure of meeting her last week. The world in which we live is unpredictable. In the past week, a tourist boat capsized on the River Danube, and searches continue for...

Scottish Parliament: Out-of-hours General Practitioner Services (4 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: I expect all integration authorities to take every measure possible to ensure that safe and sustainable out-of-hours services are provided. However, arrangements are in place for Sir Lewis Ritchie and senior Scottish Government officials to meet the management team in Glasgow regarding their review of out-of-hours care and the difficulties that are being experienced by the service. Since...

Scottish Parliament: Out-of-hours General Practitioner Services (4 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: My understanding is that arrangements were put in place between NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and NHS 24 over the weekend to deal with the closures. Home visits by GPs were available to people who had clinical need for that. I am not happy with the level of service, and I expect NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and the health and social care partnerships to take every possible step to stop that...

Scottish Parliament: Out-of-hours General Practitioner Services (4 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: I assure Jamie Greene that I share his concerns. I want to ensure that the people of Glasgow—and, indeed, the people of Scotland—get the NHS that they need. Jamie Greene will be aware that we have recently rolled out the new GP contract, which helps to reduce GPs’ workloads so that they can spend more time dealing with the more complex cases and patients in their case load. We are...

Scottish Parliament: Out-of-hours General Practitioner Services (4 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: I expect that that will be discussed in Lewis Ritchie’s review, in looking at what NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde is doing to ensure that it has GPs to cover out-of-hours services. My understanding is that there are some salaried GPs in the out-of-hours GP service as a whole, but most of the GPs who work in the service are not salaried.

Scottish Parliament: Out-of-hours General Practitioner Services (4 Jun 2019)

Clare Haughey: I do not have that information to hand for Stuart McMillan, but I make a commitment to request that he gets it as soon as I have it.
