Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 58 - Duty on NHS England to promote evidence-based public health programmes (2 Nov 2021)

Alex Norris: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. I have heard about the fastest gun in the west; I think you might be the fastest-moving Chair in the west midlands, Mr McCabe. Turning to the substance of the new clause, covid-19 has shown the value of public health programmes in building this country’s resilience and improving public health outcomes, yet there is no duty in the Bill on...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 56 - Domestic violence training for GPs (28 Oct 2021)

Edward Argar: I am grateful to the hon. Lady. In part, the reason is because this is sadly not a well drafted new clause. It is very narrowly drafted to GPs, not recognising the multidisciplinary nature of how healthcare is delivered in GP practices. I suspect that we all have correspondence from constituents—whether happy or unhappy—going to doctor associates, practice nurses and others. That is one...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 53 - Women’s representation in reproductive healthcare planning (28 Oct 2021)

Edward Argar: The hon. Lady is absolutely right to raise that. We need to get across, loud and clear, to our future clinicians almost right from the start—from their training and early education—the message that everyone’s health concerns matter equally, subject, obviously, to clinical decision making. I hope and believe that HEE and others will engage with that process in the context of the...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 51 - Duty on integrated care partnerships to prepare and deliver a Best Start for Life strategy (28 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. I cannot quite remember on what day this new clause was submitted; it is towards the end of the new clauses but not at the very end, so that probably carbon dates it by 10 days or so. Nevertheless, we had some news in this space from yesterday’s Budget. We are in the strange situation of having seen effective early intervention services,...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 50 - Access to innovative medicines and medicinal products review (28 Oct 2021)

Edward Argar: I am grateful to the shadow Minister for this discussion. I reassure members of the Committee that the Government remain absolutely committed to ensuring that UK patients, including those with rare diseases and less common conditions, have access to the most promising medicines and medicinal products. Hon. Members raised some important points, which I will seek to address in my broader...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 44 - Directors of public health (28 Oct 2021)

Edward Argar: It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair once again, Ms Elliott. My understanding, in the light of what the shadow Minister has said, is that one of the underlying aims of the new clause is to ensure that the public’s health is at the fore as we reform the health and care system. I have the utmost sympathy with that an aim The Government recognise the importance of a robust public health...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 43 - Annual report on alcohol treatment services: assessment of outcomes (28 Oct 2021)

Edward Argar: As ever, I am grateful to the shadow Minister for his exposition of the new clause, which would introduce a duty on the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to publish an annual statement on how the funding received by alcohol treatment providers has supported their work to improve treatment and reduce harm. It would also introduce a duty on the Secretary of State to publish an...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 42 - Alcohol product labelling (28 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. I welcome the Government’s commitment to bring forth a consultation on introducing calorie labelling on alcohol products, for which we have been calling for some time, but I do not think there is a need to wait for this to be introduced in order for alcohol products to display the chief medical officer’s low-risk drinking guidelines,...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 39 - Strategies to manage the needs of carers (28 Oct 2021)

Edward Argar: New clauses 39 and 40 focus on carers. First, I join the shadow Minister, as I suspect all hon. Members wish to, in recognising and paying tribute to the enormous amount of work that carers, both formal and informal, do. We want to strengthen the system by which carers are supported, and ensure that those receiving care have choice and control over how they access services. New clause 39...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 25 - “Secretary of State’s duty to report on disparities in maternal mortality rates (27 Oct 2021)

Justin Madders: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. This clause, in the words of Ronseal, does exactly what it says on the tin. It lays a duty on the Secretary of State to prepare and publish a report on variation in the quality and safety of England’s maternity services and disparities in maternal mortality rates in England. The report would include details of the steps that the...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 19 - Secretary of State’s duty to provide access to occupational health services to NHS staff (27 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. The past 18 months have made clearer than ever the health risks that our health workers face at work, as they have dealt with unprecedented pressures during the pandemic. Occupational health is a multidisciplinary approach to maintaining the wellbeing of those employed in a workplace, preventing and removing ill health and developing...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 17 - Secretary of State’s duty to maintain safe staffing levels (27 Oct 2021)

Justin Madders: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. This is a probing new clause, and I will not press it to a vote. I am not sure that this is the best legislation for it, but we are trying to make some points about the importance of patient safety. I hope we can all agree that for good care to be central, there need to be enough staff, not just notionally through some measure of the...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 8 - NHS Good Governance Commission (27 Oct 2021)

Edward Argar: The shadow Minister is right. It is a challenge, and it is something I continually reflect on, because it intersects with legal employment rights, the nature of the terms on which someone leaves, how these matters work and the fact that NHS trusts around the country are individual. It is not a simple issue. It is one that I continue to reflect on. I hasten to add that it is not just the...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 7 - Transparency of decision-making by NHS bodies (27 Oct 2021)

Justin Madders: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol South, who said what should not really need saying, but still needed to be said, because being open and transparent is the highest form of accountability. Given the history of the NHS as the archetypal public service, one would expect it to be the model of openness and transparency. Maybe it was at one point, but we are a long...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 5 - Support provided by the NHS to victims of domestic abuse (27 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I have listened carefully to what the Minister has said, and I agree with significant elements of it. I take the point about existing duties on CCGs, and I am very mindful of those. The reality is that they do not work, or they certainly have not worked to date. I have no confidence that anything will change if current arrangements are just ported over to integrated care boards, which is what...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 126 - Hospital food standards (26 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: It is a pleasure to speak on the important topic of hospital food standards. We very much support the substance of the clause, and its inclusion in the Bill. What we consume before, during and after we engage with a hospital can have a profound impact and long-lasting effects on the ailment that brought us there, and affects our experience while we are there. Even prior to being in hospital,...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 26 - Removal of asylum seeker to safe country (26 Oct 2021)

Let us look in more detail at what the Government are risking with this policy in terms of the human cost. There are countless stories of the lives destroyed by the policy of offshoring. Loghman Sawari, whose story was covered by The Guardian, is still detained, despite having been accepted by Australia as a refugee in 2014. Eight years after the initial detention, he told The Guardian that...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 123 - Regulation of health care and associated professions (26 Oct 2021)

Justin Madders: I do so wish. I will not detain the Committee long on amendment 142. We are seeking to find ways of increasing awareness of rare and less common conditions among healthcare professionals. I readily accept that the amendment may not be a perfect vehicle for doing that, but the recent UK rare diseases framework included increasing awareness of rare and less common conditions among healthcare...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: New Clause 3 - Automatic Voter Registration (26 Oct 2021)

New clause 11—Automatic Voter Registration— “(1) Registration officers must take all reasonable steps to ensure that all persons eligible to register to vote in elections in the United Kingdom are so registered. (2) The Secretary of State must by regulations require public bodies to provide information to registration officers to enable them to fulfil their duty under subsection (1)....

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 121 - Regulation of local authority functions relating to adult social care (26 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I am glad to see this change added to the Bill. Since the publication of the White Paper, we have called for greater oversight of integrated care systems. We offered options in previous sittings around democratic accountability, which would be our preference, but we may have to settle for this change, which does represent progress. Integrated care systems—in particular integrated care...
