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

Baroness Brinton: ...necessary for any healthcare system in the 21st century. The NHS has a history of evolving in response to the changing needs of the nation, yet there is hardly any discussion about the effects of Brexit on our health and welfare systems. It therefore seems appropriate, on the first anniversary of triggering Article 50, for your Lordships’ House to look at these issues in some more...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Second Reading (5 Feb 2019)

Baroness Brinton: ..., I want to thank the BMA for its own. One point that it makes has not been covered so far in our debate today. It says: “It is essential that any alternative cost-recovery system introduced post-Brexit should not place an undue burden on either the NHS or on doctors or allied health professionals working within the health service”. In view of the rearrangement of the BBC charter,...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (19 Feb 2019)

Baroness Brinton: ...is a general allocation, and one thing that we have discussed repeatedly since Second Reading is that there is a strong likelihood of substantially more non-EEA-type payments if there is a no-deal Brexit or if there are loads of different reciprocal arrangements that will make life very complex for hospital trusts and primary care providers. As a brief illustration, currently when a...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (19 Feb 2019)

Baroness Brinton: ..., and of course we have no idea whether there will be any reciprocal arrangements. Families such as this will want access to advice very speedily if we are in the unfortunate position of a no-deal Brexit. By the way, following the collapse of the Malthouse compromise, I gather that the EU has said today that it is much more convinced that there will be a no-deal Brexit. Let us hope that it...

NHS: Future UK Trade Deals - Motion to Take Note (4 Jul 2019)

Baroness Brinton: ...says that the law was enacted in the UK but only in the sense that we accepted it at the time. I understand from the Government’s insistence on the legislation that needs to go through should Brexit occur that there are various things we need to re-enact specifically in preparation for the date of departure. I had understood that the public procurement directive was one of those. Can the...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (19 Feb 2019)

Baroness Brinton: ...Baroness, Lady Manzoor, referred to in responding to the previous amendment, about the possible number of different reciprocal arrangements if we cannot get a broad EU reciprocal arrangement post Brexit. One of the worries is that we may end up having to recoup different levels of resource. Will that requirement be made on an individual trust basis or will it be administered by the NHS in...

Immigration - Question (12 Sep 2016)

Baroness Brinton: ...expected to double over the next 15 years, and that some of them could come to the UK? Given that, can the Minister explain why the Home Office has declared this, whereas the three Ministers for Brexit keep going on about how important it is to trade outside the EU? This seems a bit of an own goal.

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

Baroness Brinton: ...yesterday as I was leaving. They said to me, “You work over the road, don’t you?”. I said that I did, and they continued by saying, “We are just struggling to understand what on earth Brexit is all about. We knew during the campaign that that £350 million a week was not real, but we do not understand why people believed it”. Patients still talk to them about the extra money that...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (19 Feb 2019)

Baroness Brinton: ...following Second Reading and for her response at Second Reading. But what has become clear in the past hour is that for most of us who have been engaging in the debate this has clearly been a Brexit Bill. Indeed, the Minister says at the beginning of her letter: “Although this Bill is being brought forward as a result of the UK’s exit from the EU, it is not intended to only deal with...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Report (12 Mar 2019)

Baroness Brinton: ...of large change that requires considerable consultation with the public prior to Green Papers, White Papers and bringing it through the House. We should not try to rush it through as one of the Brexit Bills, which it is, regardless of what happens over the next few days. This is one of the Bills that we were told must be passed by 29 March. Increasing the scope of the Bill means that we...

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

Baroness Brinton: ..., the contributions were of considerable depth and expertise, combined with experience and anecdote that demonstrated the real concern many of us have about health and welfare in the light of Brexit. The key things that stuck out for me were the problems with high-skill and low-skill recruitment in the health sector. The tier 2 limits are ridiculous. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Balfe, for...

NHS: Future UK Trade Deals - Motion to Take Note (4 Jul 2019)

Baroness Brinton: ...NHS. One can have specialist medication delivered directly to one’s home, and many of the non-clinical services are now contracted out and are all part of the NHS that we are proud of. However, Brexit has demonstrated that one of the lesser-known pillars of protecting our NHS is also at risk. Not many people know that we are protected by the EU directive on public health procurement....

Bus Services Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (24 Oct 2016)

Baroness Brinton: ...in due course. I echo the comments made by the noble Baroness, Lady Jones, on Amendment 98 about the synchronicity of the Statement we have just heard on the most recent Council debate about Brexit and the great repeal Bill. The Leader of the House talked about that Bill and yet here we are, facing an amendment which the Government argue will come into force in March 2018. However,...

Domestic Violence and Abuse - Motion to Take Note (6 Jul 2017)

Baroness Brinton: ...abuse. I am encouraged that the Government are taking the next steps towards ratification, but I would like to know whether there is a timescale for it, whether it will happen before or after Brexit, and whether the Government continue to provide the right support. There has been much debate in your Lordships’ House and elsewhere about working across Europe after Brexit. If we are...
