Alex Chalk: ...the NHS’s inception 70 years ago. Most GP practices are private partnerships; the GPs are not NHS employees.

Scottish Parliament: UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Legal Continuity) (Scotland) Bill (13 Mar 2018)

Liam Kerr: At the outset, and just for completeness, I declare an interest, first as a lawyer but also as a lawyer with a pathological dislike of and intolerance for excessive legalese, ambiguity and imprecision. Throughout a legal career that began nearly two decades ago, I have often been vexed by how often law firms that I worked for were paid large amounts of money to clear up ambiguity in...

NHS Wholly Owned Subsidiary Companies — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (6 Mar 2018)

Stephen Barclay: the benefits of the arrangement. Let me give a concrete example of how the arrangement is delivering to the trust savings in the interests of patients. Under the previous delivery system, local pathology samples were sometimes lost and delayed—that is not in the interests of patients. The QEF brought in a revised system of procuring all sample containers and issuing those to GPs...

Disabled People and Economic Growth: Cancer Strategy (22 Feb 2018)

Nicholas Dakin: ...of progress being made, and the workforce plan is not yet as effective as we would wish.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (21 Feb 2018)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...across the EU. This gives a secure and consistent supply. It is used extensively in diagnosing particular diseases and in the relief of pain, particularly in palliative care, and biopic analysis in clinical pathology.

PACE Trial: People with ME — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (20 Feb 2018)

Carol Monaghan: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. I will come on to the NICE guidelines later in my speech. Although ME is a pathological, not psychological, condition, much about it remains a mystery. The reasons for that are twofold. First, many sufferers are housebound and therefore easy for society to ignore. Secondly, there is a lack of awareness among medical professionals and as a...

Priti Patel: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. We have 32 million people in work and unemployment at a record low, and Opposition Members talk our country and our economy down. They seem to have a pathological hatred of enterprise, aspiration and free markets. They call for higher taxes on businesses, which only serve their agenda to tighten controls on the free market, stifle innovation and stop...

In Portugal, for example, where the possession of small amounts of drugs has been decriminalised since 2001, a step well short of licensing and regulation, usage rates are among the lowest in Europe, and drug-related pathologies, such as blood-borne viruses and deaths due to misuse, have decreased dramatically. Compare the drug mortality rate of 5.8 per million in Portugal with Scotland,...

Duties of Customs (20 Nov 2017)

Edward Leigh: the lead signatory? It would close off options and prevent us from imposing any tariffs on goods from the EU. The hon. Member for Bootle (Peter Dowd) described such closing off of options as “pathological”. The hon. Member for Edinburgh South (Ian Murray) always strikes me as a very nice chap; does he share my concern that his own Front-Bench spokesman thinks that...
