We anticipate that this will...

The Bill will also place a new...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 203 (26 Jan 2022)

Lord Kamall: My Lords, this has been a fascinating discussion and debate. I recall watching the debate on the Private Member’s Bill of the noble Baroness, Lady Meacher, a few weeks ago; I remember thinking that that was Parliament at its best. The arguments on both sides are fascinating—thank goodness I was not the Minister responding. I thank my noble friend Lord Forsyth for assuring me today that we...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 188 (26 Jan 2022)

Lord Kamall: I thank the noble Baroness and echo her gratitude to all the noble Lords who have turned up for this group of amendments. Before I turn to specific amendments, it may be helpful to make a few general points about the new payment scheme and explain why this clause should stand part of the Bill. For many years, the national tariff improved access to services and drove up quality across the NHS....

Health and Care Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 154 (26 Jan 2022)

Lord Kamall: I thank my noble friend Lord Farmer and all noble Lords who spoke about their experiences.

Before I go into the specific amendments, I make it quite clear,...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 147 (26 Jan 2022)

Lord Kamall: I thank all noble Lords, especially the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, for the points they have raised. ICPs will play an important role in co-ordinating services, planning in a way that improves population health and reduces inequalities between different groups. It is right that we consider the best conditions for their success. I was asked where the idea for ICPs came from. It originated from the...

I am grateful to all other noble Lords who spoke on this issue, and I understand the interest in the integrated care boards’ power to disclose information that...
