Health and Social Care: Covid-19 Backlog: Elective Care (24 Jan 2023)

Liz Kendall: Ministers will never deal with the record waits for NHS treatment until they stop older people being stuck in hospital because they cannot get decent social care in the community or at home. Does the Minister understand that this is not just about getting people out of hospital, but about preventing them from being there in the first place? Is he aware that more than half a million people now...

NHS: Long-term Strategy (11 Jan 2023)

Liz Kendall: Today’s debate has laid bare the dire state of our health and care system after 13 long years of this Conservative Government: more than 7 million people waiting for hospital treatment, 400,000 for more than a year; the worst ever waits for A&E, with 50,000 patients a week now waiting more than 12 hours in A&E; excess deaths this winter at their worst level since 1951, except for the...

NHS: Long-term Strategy (11 Jan 2023)

Liz Kendall: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. The promise was buried once and for all by the Chancellor in his autumn statement last year—a Chancellor, I remind the House, who said that his biggest regret as Health Secretary was failing to put in place a long-term plan for social care. In contrast—[Interruption.] I am sure the right hon. Member for Vale of Glamorgan (Alun Cairns) will be interested to...

Cancer Services ( 8 Dec 2022)

Liz Kendall: I thank the Backbench Business Committee for granting this hugely important debate and the hon. Member for Winchester (Steve Brine) for securing it. Ever since he was elected in 2010—the same year as me—he has championed health issues. We have sat on several Bill Committees together and I know that he will continue to champion health issues in his new role as Chair of the Health and...

Health and Social Care: Social Care Reform ( 6 Dec 2022)

Liz Kendall: Let’s just tell it like it is on the Government’s record on social care reform. Their cap on care costs was first promised 10 years ago. In 2015, they delayed it and in 2017 they scrapped it. In 2019, the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) again promised to fix the crisis in social care, but last month the Chancellor buried the policy, once and for all....

backbench business: Social Care — [Rushanara Ali in the Chair] (24 Nov 2022)

Liz Kendall: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Ali. I congratulate the right hon. Member for Ashford (Damian Green) on securing this debate. It is about time that we celebrated the huge value and potential of social care, and about time that we see the fact that we are an ageing society, and all living for longer, as something that we should be excited about, proud of and look forward...

Social Housing Standards (16 Nov 2022)

Liz Kendall: Like many hon. Members, I find that by far the biggest issue that constituents raise with me is housing, including the appalling standards that we have all seen in social housing and, critically, in the private rented sector. I would like to press the Secretary of State a bit more on what his plans are for the private rented sector. Leicester City Council, like many councils, is introducing a...

Huntington’s Disease — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] ( 9 Nov 2022)

Liz Kendall: It is a pleasure to serve with you as Chair, Mr Robertson. I really congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Leeds Central (Hilary Benn) on securing this debate. He spoke with great authority and passion, including about the person he knows. It means a lot that this place can reflect how people really feel when they have to live with this terrible disorder and the impact it has on...

State Pension Triple Lock ( 8 Nov 2022)

Liz Kendall: rose—

State Pension Triple Lock ( 8 Nov 2022)

Liz Kendall: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for giving way. I am sure he knows that half of all Leicester pensioners live in the most deprived 20% of the country, and one in five live in the most deprived 5% of the country. They are frightened for their future and will feel betrayed by Conservative Members if they do not walk through the Lobby with us tonight.

Health and Social Care: Moving Patients into Social Care ( 1 Nov 2022)

Liz Kendall: The previous Health Secretary promised £500 million social care discharge funding for this winter, but it is 1 November and not a single penny of that money has been seen. I am afraid that the political chaos and incompetence over the last few weeks means that local services cannot properly plan and thousands more elderly people are trapped in hospitals when they do not need to be, with all...

Contact in Care Settings (27 Oct 2022)

Liz Kendall: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, Walton (Dan Carden) and the hon. Members for Chatham and Aylesford (Tracey Crouch) and for St Albans (Daisy Cooper) for securing this hugely important debate. I hope my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, Walton will forgive me for saying that I thought he spoke incredibly bravely and powerfully about his father, who I am sure would be very...

Tributes to Her Late Majesty The Queen ( 9 Sep 2022)

Liz Kendall: On behalf of the people of Leicester West, I would like to send our deepest sympathy and condolences to His Majesty the King and the royal family. They have lost their mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, as well as their sovereign. I hope the fact that the whole nation grieves alongside them provides some small comfort at this difficult time. Queen Elizabeth was a simply remarkable...

Sickle Cell Treatment — [Mrs Maria Miller in the Chair] ( 8 Dec 2021)

Liz Kendall: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Miller. Like everyone, I congratulate the right hon. Member for Wolverhampton South East (Mr McFadden) on securing this debate on an extremely important issue. I pay tribute to the members, officers and staff of the APPG on sickle cell and thalassaemia. The report “No One’s Listening” is one of the most powerful, serious and...

Sickle Cell Treatment — [Mrs Maria Miller in the Chair] ( 8 Dec 2021)

Liz Kendall: I apologise. I should be speaking to people rather than into a void. Unless we understand those two fundamental issues, we will never get the change we need. I want to use my time not to repeat what others have said but to talk about how we get real and lasting change, thinking about some of my own experience of working in health and care for 20 to 25 years. There is a lot in the report that...

Adult Social Care ( 1 Dec 2021)

Liz Kendall: I thank the Minister for advance sight of her statement—but really, is that it? There are some things she said for which Labour has been calling for some while, and which we support, such as improving housing options for older and disabled people, and the potential for technology to improve standards of care. However, there are two central flaws to the Government’s approach. Ministers...

Space Sector: Leicester Space Park ( 1 Dec 2021)

Liz Kendall: I beg to move, That this House has considered Leicester Space Park and the wider space sector. It is a privilege to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Bardell. I am delighted to have secured this important debate on a subject close to my heart, as there is huge potential for space science and technology to create the high-skill, high-quality jobs of the future, boost economic growth, tackle...

Health and Social Care: Unpaid Carers (23 Nov 2021)

Liz Kendall: Many families are pushed to breaking point because they cannot get the help they need to look after the person they love. Will the Minister now confirm that somebody who is trying to hold down a job and care for their elderly mum whose house is worth £100,000 will face a tax rise that will not improve their mum’s care or give them a break from caring, and will not even stop them from...

Health and Care Bill: New Clause 49 - Cap on Care Costs for charging Purposes (22 Nov 2021)

Liz Kendall: Will the Minister give way?
