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

Clare Haughey: NHS Tayside halted changes to its reconfiguration programme in line with the inquiry’s interim report recommendations, in May 2018. The cabinet secretary and I made it clear that we would not support NHS Tayside’s proposals for changing in-patient services until we were satisfied that they were framed by consideration of the whole system, including local community services. As I described...

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

Clare Haughey: I absolutely agree, and I am sure that that will come as no surprise to Mr Macdonald. AHPs, nurses and others play a key role in delivering mental health services day in, day out across the country. As I mentioned, the use of advanced nurse practitioners can expand services and provide additional support in situations when, perhaps, there are not as many medical staff or psychiatrists as we...

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

Clare Haughey: Recruitment plays a part. In an earlier answer, I set out the steps that the Scottish Government is taking to increase the number of medical students who are taking up training in psychiatry. The issue of the number of students studying psychiatry is not exclusive to Scotland, or to Tayside; it is faced across much of the western world. We need to look at investing in, and improving the...

Scottish Parliament: Blind and Partially Sighted People (Access to Health Information) (10 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: I am pleased to respond on behalf of the Scottish Government. I add my thanks and congratulations to Stuart McMillan for bringing the motion for debate, and I pay tribute to his long-standing work. We all share the goal of improving access to assessment, care and support for people with visual impairment. The Government is absolutely clear that blind and partially sighted people in Scotland...

Scottish Parliament: Whitburn Academy Be Herd Group (5 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: I am pleased to respond to the debate on behalf of the Scottish Government. It is imperative that we have such conversations and that we aim to break down the stigma associated with mental health. That is why debates like this one are important. I want to thank a few people for bringing the debate to the chamber. First, I thank Neil Findlay for lodging the motion and for his continuing...

Scottish Parliament: Whitburn Academy Be Herd Group (5 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: Fu rther on in my speech, I will speak about the actions that we are taking as a Government—and that I am taking as a minister—in conjunction with other agencies and with input from children and young people and their families, which is key to ensuring that those services deliver for them. We want to make sure that anyone who needs help can access services that are appropriate to their...

Scottish Parliament: Whitburn Academy Be Herd Group (5 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: I will in a second. My officials are already in regular contact with boards to support them to produce local improvement plans and robust trajectories that are based on detailed modelling of capacity and demand. The audit of rejected referrals that was published in 2018—which Mr Findlay referenced—contained a range of recommendations to improve the effectiveness of CAMHS, and we accepted...

Scottish Parliament: Whitburn Academy Be Herd Group (5 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: The member raises a valid point. As the Minister for Mental Health, I want to understand exactly why some boards are underperforming whereas others can meet their waiting time targets and provide services more timeously. We have committed to developing a community mental wellbeing service for five to 24-year-olds that will offer immediate access to counselling, self-care advice and family and...

Scottish Parliament: Whitburn Academy Be Herd Group (5 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: As I said, there is increasing demand for CAMHS year on year, which is why we are developing early intervention and medium-term care packages and options to enable people to access services that are of lower intensity than CAMHS and that are probably much more appropriate for those individuals. Provision of access to a counsellor is one part of the support that we are putting in place....

Scottish Parliament: Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2020 (4 Mar 2020)

Clare Haughey: I am pleased to respond to the debate on behalf of the Scottish Government. It is right that we hold this debate each year to mark eating disorders awareness week, as it allows us to raise awareness of eating disorders and the terrible impacts that they can have not just on those who are diagnosed but on their family and friends. I want to acknowledge a few people, in particular, for their...

Scottish Parliament: Inflammatory Bowel Disease (27 Feb 2020)

Clare Haughey: Through its modernising patient pathways programme, the Scottish Government has been working closely with health boards and Crohn’s and Colitis UK in recent years to improve IBD services, pathways and patient outcomes across Scotland. That includes the development of a series of self-management tools, care plans, a mobile app and supporting the pilot of a new specialist IBD community nurse...

Scottish Parliament: Inflammatory Bowel Disease (27 Feb 2020)

Clare Haughey: First, I pay tribute to the work of the Parliament’s cross-party group on IBD and to Clare Adamson for the interest that she has shown in IBD over some years. The modernising patient pathways programme is leading on a series of national workshops with the gastroenterology community across Scotland, with a view to producing evidence-based standardised pathways for people who present with...

Scottish Parliament: Inflammatory Bowel Disease (27 Feb 2020)

Clare Haughey: Mary Fee has raised an important issue. The Scottish Government has been investing in research by Cure Crohn’s Colitis and the Crohn’s and colitis in childhood research project, which is led by Professor Charlie Lees, a consultant gastroenterologist based at the Western general hospital. The project will help to determine what causes disease flare-ups in some patients, and has the...

Scottish Parliament: Obesity Rates (School-age Children) (27 Feb 2020)

Clare Haughey: The percentage of children who are at risk of being overweight has been fairly constant over the past decade at about 22 per cent, of which 10 per cent are at risk of obesity. However, there are increasing inequalities in child unhealthy weight between children who live in the most and least deprived areas. That is why our ambition to halve childhood obesity by 2030 and significantly reduce...

Scottish Parliament: Obesity Rates (School-age Children) (27 Feb 2020)

Clare Haughey: I assure Willie Coffey that the Scottish Government is committed to reducing the number of obese people across Scotland, and particularly the number of obese children. The Scottish Government is doing many things, but the issue is fundamentally one for everyone in Scotland, including public bodies, industry and front-line practitioners, all of whom have a part to play in improving...

Scottish Parliament: Gambling (20 Feb 2020)

Clare Haughey: In common with other compulsive and addictive behaviours, problem gambling is addressed as part of wider health issues. Anyone who believes that gambling is affecting their health, or that of a loved one, should consult their general practitioner in the first instance. Out-of-hours advice and support can be obtained from NHS24 or from Breathing Space. The NHSinform website also contains...

Scottish Parliament: Gambling (20 Feb 2020)

Clare Haughey: We will continue to consider evidence on what works best to address the issue of gambling harms in Scotland. That includes work by the Scottish Public Health Network to develop and implement a whole population approach to the prevention and reduction of gambling harms. That is currently being progressed with partners including NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, Glasgow City Council, and the...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (19 Feb 2020)

Clare Haughey: On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I find the remarks that Monica Lennon has just made about me to be insulting. What my gestures are when I am not making a speech or an intervention, and when I am in conversation with a colleague sitting beside me, should not concern her.
