NHS: Dentistry Services - Motion to Take Note (25 Jul 2019)

Baroness Masham of Ilton: ...shy away from the subject, but it needs to be highlighted and I congratulate her on introducing this debate. There is a shortage of much-needed NHS dentists at the present time, as has been said. Brexit is not helping, and I hope that if we leave the EU we will not lose some of the excellent dentists who come from EU countries. Many people go to Europe for their dentistry treatment because...

Antimicrobial Resistance - Motion to Take Note (2 May 2019)

Baroness Masham of Ilton: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Lansley, for this most necessary debate, which covers vital aspects of life and death. So much parliamentary energy and time has been spent on Brexit that a subject as important as antimicrobial resistance has not been as prominent as it should have been on the parliamentary agenda. However, I congratulate Professor Dame Sally Davies, the Chief Medical...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (2nd Day) (10 Jan 2019)

Baroness Masham of Ilton: ...Britain’s most commonly used medicines are produced in 50 countries and drug companies say that airlifts, drug priority routes and export bans would be needed to prevent shortages under a no-deal Brexit, because of increasingly complex supply chains. Analysis carried out by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency has found that the 20 most commonly used drugs in the NHS...

Brexit: People’s Vote - Motion to Take Note (25 Oct 2018)

Baroness Masham of Ilton: ...medical conditions. On Tuesday this week, we had our all-party parliamentary group AGM. Our members are most concerned by the difficulties and insecurities that are emerging in the workforce due to Brexit. Many of our members who live in the community have personal carers from the EU. Unlike many of the British, who have their own homes and therefore do not want to live-in or work at...

The NHS - Motion to Take Note (5 Jul 2018)

Baroness Masham of Ilton: ...saw a sister so answers were not forthcoming. I left wondering what Florence Nightingale would have thought. There were some charming young doctors. One of them told me she had had problems since Brexit and was thinking of leaving. This is tragic when they are so badly needed. The Government need to work very hard on providing a competent NHS workforce across the UK, with good...

The Long-term Sustainability of the NHS and Adult Social Care - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (26 Apr 2018)

Baroness Masham of Ilton: ...population grows in the coming years. Are the Government aware of this situation, and do they have any plans to deal with it? I need an answer to give them—they are waiting. As I said earlier, Brexit is exacerbating the serious staff shortage problem, which must be solved if there is not to be a monumental catastrophe. I agree with this House of Lords report, which states: “We are...

Brexit: Health and Welfare - Motion to Take Note (29 Mar 2018)

Baroness Masham of Ilton: ...the needs of disabled people who are living in the community and need help. I declare an interest as I employ help, with my helpers coming mainly from eastern Europe. In the last year, because of Brexit, this has become very difficult. Many people feel that England does not want them, and the economic conditions in their own countries have improved. In the past, Europeans have come to the...

Health: Congenital Heart Disease - Question for Short Debate (20 Jul 2017)

Baroness Masham of Ilton: ...adult care. That approach will be lost if the Royal Brompton’s unit is closed. Does the Minister not think that continuity of care is important? With the insecurity of everything at present—and Brexit, which does not help—there is already evidence that many of the clinicians and academics who come to the Royal Brompton from around the world to work in the CHD unit will return to...

Medical Research - Question for Short Debate (28 Mar 2017)

Baroness Masham of Ilton: My Lords, there needs to be safe regulation of medical trials. The Government must ensure that they have appropriate scientific advice during the Brexit negotiations. Have they decided to have a chief scientific adviser in the Department for International Trade? Nervousness about immigration and nationality persists in the scientific community. The delay in solid reassurances and mixed...

Assisted Dying - Question for Short Debate (6 Mar 2017)

Baroness Masham of Ilton: ...at risk of pressure from their families, who fear losing the house if it goes on payment for expensive care homes. There is immense pressure on the NHS and social services. The insecurities of Brexit have already lessened nursing and care help coming from Europe. It will be a disaster if it dries up. Severely paralysed people cannot cope without help. In desperation, they might turn to...

Brexit: Disabled People - Question for Short Debate (2 Feb 2017)

Baroness Masham of Ilton: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Scott of Needham Market, for securing this debate. Many people are tired of hearing that Brexit means Brexit. This debate may give some insight into what disabled people are thinking. It seems a long time since I made my maiden speech on what became the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970. I have been surprised by how much legislation...

Equine Welfare Standards - Question for Short Debate (11 Jan 2017)

Baroness Masham of Ilton: ...weeks’ work experience to learn about horses. One of the best came from the Dick veterinary college in Edinburgh and was Russian. I hope that foreign students will not be restricted because of Brexit. In the UK we have some very important animal charities. It is essential that we work together to promote high standards for equidae in Europe. I hope that the UK will not become isolated...

Health and Social Care - Motion to Take Note (15 Dec 2016)

Baroness Masham of Ilton: ...across the country? There is suspicion of STPs, which do not seem to be open and transparent. Everyone wants a thriving NHS, not a failing service. Many people thought that if they voted for Brexit, the money saved would go to the NHS. They will feel that they were led up the garden path if things do not get better.

Health and Social Care - Motion to Take Note (24 Nov 2016)

Baroness Masham of Ilton: ...abroad on behalf of NHS trusts are full of anxiety. TFS Healthcare, which recruits nurses for UK hospitals from Spain, Portugal, Romania, Poland and Italy, is already seeing the impact of the Brexit vote. A lot of nurses from these countries have now been put off coming to the UK. The managing director says that even more concerning is that nurses already placed in UK hospitals are...
