Scottish Parliament: Social Distancing (Older People’s Health) (5 May 2020)

Clare Haughey: I think that we all recognise just how difficult not being able to access parents or grandparents is—for all of us—and that it is particularly difficult for people who are shielding or who are over 70 and cannot access their grandchildren, which is absolutely heartbreaking. I have heard tales of people who have had a grandchild born during lockdown who they have not been able to see or...

Scottish Parliament: Social Distancing (Older People’s Health) (5 May 2020)

Clare Haughey: I refer Mr Gibson to part of my answer to Monica Lennon. We know that people in that age group are much more at risk, we know that the mortality rate is higher in that group, and we know that the measures that are currently in place are helping us to tackle the pandemic. We are all responsible for our own actions, but we all need to follow the guidance, which is led by the science. I would...

Scottish Parliament: Young People’s Mental Wellbeing (21 Apr 2020)

Clare Haughey: We know that closing schools and placing restrictions on everyday life have been difficult for everyone and in particular for children and young people. We want guidance and help to be available for anyone who needs them. The unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic means that local authorities are rightly focusing on providing adequate and effective support for our most vulnerable young people....

Scottish Parliament: Young People’s Mental Wellbeing (21 Apr 2020)

Clare Haughey: I, too, pay tribute to the third sector organisations that have supported the mental health and wellbeing of the people of Scotland before and during the pandemic and that will continue to do so after it. I do not have the specific figures that Miles Briggs asked for, but I am happy to provide them to him. He asked specifically about distress brief interventions. In the past week, we have...

Scottish Parliament: Young People’s Mental Wellbeing (21 Apr 2020)

Clare Haughey: The Scottish Government is working with a range of partners to support children and families, and to mitigate the impact of the outbreak and the necessary social distancing measures that we see in education and other vital services that support children’s health and wellbeing. We are committed to getting it right for every child. We are supporting services to work together to support our...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Services (NHS Lothian) (19 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: NHS Lothian has assured me that it is committed to recruiting key clinical staff in order to reduce waiting times for child and adolescent mental health services. It has invested, and it will continue to invest, £3 million of additional funding in CAMHS annually. The funding aims to create new capacity and will be ring fenced, as far as possible, to start the treatment of those who have...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Services (NHS Lothian) (19 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: Mr Balfour’s question is very pertinent and topical, given the circumstances in which we find ourselves. Mental health can and will be affected by social isolation, and the current pandemic is, no doubt, having an impact on the mental health of children and young people, as well as across the general population. We are developing strategies and advice, not only for children and young...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Services (NHS Lothian) (19 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: I am always open to hearing about service users’ and their parents’ experiences. As a national health service, we need to learn from their feedback about how we can improve services right across the country.

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Services (NHS Lothian) (19 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: That is another really important issue. We are looking at it as we speak, including at how we can develop support and guidance for our mental health staff and NHS staff across the piece. There will be changes to how services are delivered, and we are working with NHS managers to ensure that staff feel supported in dealing with those changes.

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Services in Tayside (Independent Inquiry) (11 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: Last month, Dr David Strang published the final report of the independent inquiry into mental health services in Tayside. I thank Dr Strang, the inquiry team and Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland for their hard work. In particular, I also thank everyone who contributed to the inquiry. More than 1,500 people shared their often incredibly painful experiences and personal testimonies. Far...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Services in Tayside (Independent Inquiry) (11 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: Mr Briggs raises some important issues. We need to ensure that NHS Tayside and its partners listen to those who use the service and to the staff who provide the service, as well as to the trade unions and professional bodies. NHS Tayside and its partners have made a commitment to do so, and I will be scrutinising the work that they do in that regard to ensure that they deliver what they have...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Services in Tayside (Independent Inquiry) (11 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: I thank Monica Lennon for her questions—there were several questions, and I apologise if I do not answer them all. I will be happy to come back to her with more detail if what I say does not satisfy the questions. I welcome her statement welcoming NHS Tayside’s and its partners’ acceptance of the report. There should be no resistance to change or to acceptance of the recommendations of...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Services in Tayside (Independent Inquiry) (11 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: I thank Shona Robison for her questions. I am really grateful to David Strang for agreeing to undertake a further review, which will build on the Scottish Government’s Tayside oversight group and continue to monitor the progress there. The member spoke about trust and respect, which are absolutely key in ensuring that all the voices that need to be heard by NHS Tayside and its partners are...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Services in Tayside (Independent Inquiry) (11 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: I thank Mr Stewart for that question. It is key that we ensure that staff feel adequately trained, have capacity to reflect on their work, have supervision and can express their concerns in such a way that they do not feel judged but, rather, feel that they will be supported . That is why I welcome the sessions that NHS Tayside has introduced, in which staff are able to express their...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Services in Tayside (Independent Inquiry) (11 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: As I said in answer to an earlier question, I welcome the involvement of all stakeholders in the on-going and previous discussions about NHS Tayside’s care and treatment of people who access mental health services. Their voices are absolutely key to future work. I welcome NHS Tayside’s continuing engagement with the stakeholder group.

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Services in Tayside (Independent Inquiry) (11 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: I am sorry if Mr Stewart has misunderstood what I said. I am not carrying out a review of mental health services across Scotland. The quality and safety board is there to draw organisations together to look at quality and safety across the country. However, I am happy to make a commitment, as I did in my statement, to come back and provide further updates on the quality and safety board’s...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Services in Tayside (Independent Inquiry) (11 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: The development of the whole-system approach to the mental health and wellbeing strategy will create new roles and new opportunities for staff, such as advanced nurse practitioners, and I hope that that will create more capacity and attractive opportunities. As I said earlier, we are working with the Royal College of Psychiatrists, NES and medical schools to promote psychiatry as an...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Services in Tayside (Independent Inquiry) (11 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: The Scottish Government has regularly engaged with staff representatives and it was clear from our most recent meeting with them on 28 January, where I was in attendance with the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport, that significant concerns remain. We welcome NHS Tayside’s commitment to working in partnership with its staff and staff representatives to ensure that everyone has the...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Services in Tayside (Independent Inquiry) (11 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: I expect that anyone who presents in a state of mental health crisis is given a thorough mental health assessment and that a proper risk assessment is carried out by the person who did the assessment, whether a doctor, nurse or allied health professional, as happens day in, day out across the country in mental health teams, accident and emergency departments and in-patient settings. I expect...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health Services in Tayside (Independent Inquiry) (11 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: One of the findings of the report was that, as an organisation, NHS Tayside was not open to learning from adverse experiences, and staff reported a “blame culture”. Organisational development is vital. NHS Tayside is already taking steps to better engage with staff, and with service users and their families. The package of measures that I announced in January, and the work that is being...
