Written Answers — Department for International Development: Developing Countries: Tuberculosis (13 Jun 2019)

Andrew Murrison: ...the Global Fund operates. Strengthening TB prevention, diagnosis and treatment also contributes to strengthening broader health systems. The UK’s investment in the Global Fund is building national capability to deliver quality health services and contributing to Universal Health Coverage and to ensuring that no country and no person is left behind.

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Andrew Murrison: ...than five-year basis. That is vital, and we must also ensure that we have the necessary funding for the improvements we need to achieve to get outcomes up to the level enjoyed by our peer-group nations in western Europe, not the basket of nations with which we are often erroneously compared. How do we do that? We have to take the public with us and work across party boundaries. None of the...

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Andrew Murrison: ...may even recall the 2015 manifesto commitment, on which we stood, to implement something that looked a little bit like Dilnot. Most of us at the time thought that was a jolly good idea. Our public services are all about pooled risk. That is what the NHS and our social services are all about—in everything, it seems, except for dementia and other chronic and long-term conditions that...

Health Service Medical Supplies (Costs) Bill (Programme) (No. 2): Duty to have regard to the life sciences sector and access to new medicines and treatments (15 Mar 2017)

Andrew Murrison: all about money, but I seem to remember that less than two years ago, he stood for election on a manifesto that would have had the effect of opposing the money that is currently going into the national health service, so we should not take any lessons from the Labour party on financing the NHS. The Government are absolutely right to oppose this amendment. It looks a bit like a probing...

Class 4 National Insurance Contributions (15 Mar 2017)

Andrew Murrison: colleagues and their constituents. Notwithstanding his comments to my hon. Friend the Member for Bath (Ben Howlett), may I invite him to look afresh at the possibility of hypothecating national insurance contributions, so that contributors to NICs, employers and the public can see a clearer link between their contributions and the services they receive?

Health and Social Care Budgets — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (14 Mar 2017)

Andrew Murrison: ...cost is generated in our declining years. It is reasonable, after 2020, to look at instruments such as the triple lock to see whether those substantial sums of money should be handed to our national health service. Most elderly people I know would welcome such a thing. We need to look fundamentally at what to do with healthcare funding going forward. It is very good to hear of the...

Amendment of the Law ( 8 Mar 2017)

Andrew Murrison: ...prognosticating so luridly over the past several months. I say from the outset that, although I agree with the statement and some of the things that were announced, I have some small concerns about national insurance. On that matter, I find myself in agreement with the concerns expressed by the hon. Members for Nottingham East and for Leeds West (Rachel Reeves). It is very important to...

Intergenerational Fairness (28 Feb 2017)

Andrew Murrison: ...principally in the frame, would be to say that the £2.2 billion per annum that the 2.5% element of the triple lock will probably generate by the end of this decade might be hypothecated into the national health service? In that way, we might gain some level of acceptance from pensioners.

NHS Shared Business Services (27 Feb 2017)

Andrew Murrison: Does the Secretary of State agree that it is vital that we move towards a fully paperless national health service, but that it will be very difficult to do so as long as national health service trusts cannot talk to each other electronically? Radiological images, for example, are often not available when consultants see patients, who therefore have to have the test again, which is contrary to...

Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration and Health Service Commissioner for England (Appointment) (24 Jan 2017)

Andrew Murrison: I very much welcome Mr Behrens to his important new appointment. The PHSO is a vital backstop for complaints about the national health service. Its function is clearly vital to our constituents, and I am sure that Mr Behrens is seized of the importance of his new duties. It seems to me, anecdotally, that the service has become more responsive since 2012. A great deal of credit is due to Dame...

National Health Service Funding (22 Nov 2016)

Andrew Murrison: I start by commending all the hard-working people in our national health service—doctors and nurses—for the increased activity in our NHS over the past several years. The NHS has never worked harder. We have never seen so many patients treated in our NHS and standards are certainly improving. However, we must face up to the fact that indices of mortality and morbidity that are amenable to...

Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism: [1st Allotted Day] (13 Jul 2016)

Andrew Murrison: ...of those who participated in the Iraq war. That volume brings out a number of key findings, and that is particularly important today, with the publication of the Public Accounts Committee report on service family accommodation, which is less than obliging. The key findings raise a number of issues that are of importance to my constituents, particularly in relation to inquests involving...

Junior Doctors Contract ( 6 Jul 2016)

Andrew Murrison: ...of the hon. Member for Hackney North and Stoke Newington (Ms Abbott), who speaks for the Opposition, does the Secretary of State agree that it is indeed important to maintain morale in the health service? We need to be very careful about striking special deals for one particular part of the workforce, and the perception that that might be unfair. Would he further agree that we need to...

Centenary of the Battle of the Somme (29 Jun 2016)

Andrew Murrison: ...On 12 August 1916, a young German officer called Friedrich Steinbrecher wrote home, saying: “Somme. The whole history of the world cannot contain a more ghastly word.” Somme is seared into the national consciousness like no other battle before or since. On Friday, in Manchester, at Thiepval, in London and across the country, we will unite to mark the first day of the centenary of the...

Petition - Car Parking Facilities at Watermead Country Park, Leicester: Comparative Healthcare Economics/NHS Finance ( 7 Jun 2016)

Andrew Murrison: firmly in the wake of our immediate northern-European neighbours France, Germany, Holland, Belgium and Denmark. Can we explain why UK healthcare outcomes are not as good as those of peer group nations through differences in the level of healthcare funding? We can expect an opinion from the House of Lords, which last week set up a Select Committee under Lord Patel to examine the...

Business of the House (26 May 2016)

Andrew Murrison: Yesterday, the other place appointed a Select Committee to consider long-term NHS sustainability. Given pressures on our national health service, can we consider whether such a Committee might be established in the elected House?

Defending Public Services (23 May 2016)

Andrew Murrison: ...Digital Economy, has just walked into the Chamber. This Government have done a splendid job in trying to roll out broadband. It is very difficult to make inroads into the last 5%, but the universal service obligation and the commitment to 10 megabits is absolutely right. I look forward, in particular, to my rural constituents and their small businesses being able to access 21st-century...

Defending Public Services (23 May 2016)

Andrew Murrison: I do not disagree with the hon. Lady that there are big pressures on the horizon, but can she say how much, beyond Simon Stevens’ predicted costs, her party is now pledged to spend on the national health service, because so far all we have heard is prevarication?

Opposition Day: NHS Bursaries ( 4 May 2016)

Andrew Murrison: ...Opposition gives me any confidence that they have any plan as to how we are to satisfy the two imperatives of allowing those who want to study nursing to do so and of plugging the shortage in our national health service. At the moment, I am afraid, we are able to deal with that issue only because nurses from overseas are prepared to come here—nurses, very often, from countries that can...

Junior Doctors Contracts (18 Apr 2016)

Andrew Murrison: ...working and on Sir Bruce Keogh’s clinical standards. However, is it not the case that what might be right in a large hospital in a densely urban centre might not be applicable right across our national health service? Is that not why the very radical changes to working practices that he is rightly prosecuting are necessary?
