10. Short Debate: Cancer services: A post-COVID-19 recovery plan (25 Nov 2020)

Vaughan Gething: ...attention to maintaining person-centred care. It's important that we have a shared understanding of how to improve cancer services and outcomes. We know that we need to drive down the rates of smoking and obesity to detect cancer at an earlier and more treatable stage, to consistently provide the latest evidence-based interventions and therapies, and to support people properly throughout...

6. Debate on a Member's Legislative Proposal: Welsh Hearts Bill (21 Oct 2020)

Vaughan Gething: ...that the starting point would be if we could avoid cardiac arrests in the first place, in improving our broader public health. We shouldn't forget the debates we have here about exercise, about smoking, about alcohol and having a healthy weight. I was pleased to hear Suzy Davies mention Denmark: it's a part of the world where I have family, and part of our challenge in understanding why...

11. The National Health Service (Pharmaceutical Services) (Wales) Regulations 2020 (22 Sep 2020)

Vaughan Gething: ...in doing so. All pharmacies are now able to provide the common ailments service, many undertake medicine reviews on discharge from hospital, offer flu vaccinations, provide advice and support on smoking cessation and the emergency contraception service.

QNR: Questions to the Minister for Health and Social Services (12 Feb 2020)

Vaughan Gething: Evidence of the longer term health effects of e-cigarette use is currently very limited. We recognise some people have found them helpful in helping to stop smoking.

5. Statement by the Minister for Health and Social Services: A Healthier Wales Transformation Fund Progress Report (14 Jan 2020)

Vaughan Gething: ...I'd just make is it's helpful to remind ourselves about the point about preventable ill health as well. It's not just about demand on the health service, but social care too. So, diet, exercise, smoking and alcohol are four big areas that we all know we can make a difference in ourselves, but it's about how we help and encourage people to do that, and actually the transformation fund...

Vaughan Gething: ...are, as well. Because this is part of a broader conversation on choices that we all make as citizens: how much we eat, how much we drink, how much we move. These are all key parts, together with smoking, in our own health outcomes, but we do recognise there's a significant challenge for us in alcohol use. And in terms of the broader point that Dai Lloyd makes about reviewing the level of...

4. Statement by the Minister for Health and Social Services: 'Healthy Weight: Healthy Wales' (22 Oct 2019)

Vaughan Gething: ...and figures about what we’re doing and investing in active travel and that in the strategy as well, I think it’s just important to reflect and to recognise that the points that you make about smoking are of real interest, because the legislative change helped to move things on with a broader change taking place at different levels within different parts of the country. But it led to...

2. Questions to the Minister for Health and Social Services: Health Inequalities ( 3 Jul 2019)

Vaughan Gething: ...every area of experience and outcomes. I know that ASH have been particularly interested in developing services that are aimed at young people and are effective in getting young people to engage in smoking cessation but equally messages about not taking up smoking in the first place. I know that my officials have regular contact with ASH Wales. And, as I say, I'm always interested about...

Vaughan Gething: ...interaction and improvement but also the social improvement and interaction from people having a setting to go to, and the behaviour change that is, then, potentially embedded as well. We know that smoking is responsible for much for the disability we've seen in pulmonary disease. It's important for us to consider the importance of smoking cessation for those with pulmonary disease as well...

2. Questions to the Minister for Health and Social Services: Ill health in South Wales (13 Mar 2019)

Vaughan Gething: ...can be used to support a different range of activities. I think this is straightforward public health work, and how we support people to quit, how we have healthier messages about not taking up smoking in the first place, and then how we support people to reduce and then stop smoking as well. Our vision is to have a smoke-free society, and there are various stages to that point. I'm...

And that's together working with the midwives who are actually undertaking that care in the community as well as on hospital sites, and actually trying to change some attitudes around smoking as well, because if you go outside almost every maternity unit in the country, you'll find a bunch of fag butts outside. Now, there's a challenge there for us about changing people's...

2. Questions to the Minister for Health and Social Services: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (13 Mar 2019)

Vaughan Gething: ...target where we had a basis to set it and to want to achieve it.  In terms of the evidence around e-cigarettes, information about e-cigarettes is already provided when people engage with stop-smoking services. The point about the future for e-cigarettes is one that we do need to determine here in Wales, but I would just correct the suggestion that e-cigarettes are much safer. I think it...

2. Questions to the Minister for Health and Social Services: Questions Without Notice from Party Spokespeople (13 Mar 2019)

Vaughan Gething: We're reviewing our tobacco control action plan to see that we do actually want to make further progress. We're looking again at the organisational structure, for example, of our stop-smoking services. Encouragingly, we saw more people come to the NHS Help Me Quit service this January compared to last January—a 20 per cent rise in people seeking help—but, of course, I'm always interested...

4. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Services: Cwm Taf Maternity Services ( 9 Oct 2018)

To ensure a consistent drive for improvement, national performance indicators were set that cover areas such as smoking cessation, weight management, support for women with serious mental ill-health, caesarean section rates, breast feeding, and staffing levels. Annual maternity performance boards are held,...

7. Member Debate under Standing Order 11.21(iv): Baby Loss ( 3 Oct 2018)

Vaughan Gething: ...safer pregnancy initiative led by the maternity network listened to families who wanted midwives and obstetricians to break the silence. With increasing complexity in pregnancy, including obesity, smoking and maternal health factors like diabetes, stillbirth has a risk of increasing prevalence not reducing. That's why the safer pregnancy initiative was so important, with the posters, the...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Services: The Promotion of Physical Health Among Young People (19 Sep 2018)

3. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Services: The Seventieth Anniversary of the NHS ( 3 Jul 2018)

Vaughan Gething: ...state, because we do have a shared responsibility for the choices that we make. It's one of the things that we regularly talk about on almost every major cause of disease, illness and death—so smoking, how much we drink, how much we exercise and what we eat. In addition to that, we need to make some of those healthier choices—[Inaudible.] —easier. That's part of what we need to do,...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Services: Reducing Levels of Smoking (27 Jun 2018)

Vaughan Gething: ...Assembly election. At that time, there was real concern about the use of e-cigarettes, and it still remains, about the fact that they're often targeted at younger people, not as an alternative to smoking, and that we also can't be clear about what's in them because we don't regulate the make-up of e-cigarettes. So, I think it's honest to say that Public Health England have recognised that...
