Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Accident and Emergency Units (10 Jun 2014)

David Tredinnick: Does my right hon. Friend agree that a critical problem that A and E units will face in the future is antibiotic resistance? Is he aware that the Science and Technology Committee, of which I am a member, has been looking at this issue, and it also interests the Health Committee, of which I am also a member? Can he assure me that he is talking to the Prime Minister about how to stimulate new...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (1 Apr 2014)

David Tredinnick: In his travels to the People’s Republic of China, what has my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State learned about the integration of western medicine with traditional Chinese medicine?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Alternative Medicines (NHS) (25 Feb 2014)

David Tredinnick: I congratulate right hon. Friends on setting up the herbal working group to improve regulation of herbal medicine and its practitioners. Is the Minister aware that there is a problem of supply, in that most people have to pay for their herbal medicine and it is not necessarily available from clinical commissioning groups? Will she issue guidance? Perhaps we should have a mapping exercise in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust (19 Nov 2013)

David Tredinnick: The improved transparency and increased accountability will do much to right the wrongs of the past. When will the health care certificates for nursing assistants be introduced, and has my right hon. Friend considered giving hospital managers discretion to appoint individual nurses to the under-75s?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Urgent and Emergency Care Review (12 Nov 2013)

David Tredinnick: How many extra lives does my right hon. Friend expect to save through consolidating the A and E facilities in London, by having a smaller number of hospitals with more doctors? Does he expect to replicate that across England?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Hospital Mortality Rates (16 Jul 2013)

David Tredinnick: Sadly, the problems at George Eliot hospital go back well over a decade, so these special measures will be very welcome, but is not one of my right hon. Friend’s fundamental problems dealing with a culture of secrecy, where in the past a board with a problem would talk to a strategic health authority board and nobody would know what was going on? Is not sunlight the best disinfectant?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Northern Ireland (16 Jul 2013)

David Tredinnick: Does my right hon. Friend agree that it makes it more difficult for law enforcement agencies if parade routes are changed at short notice? We need the maximum possible notice.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Adult Social Care (16 Jul 2013)

David Tredinnick: Will my hon. Friend give an indication of the long-term cost savings of integrating health and social care, as against the short-term cost of making the changes?

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Herbal Medicine (Regulation) (9 Jul 2013)

David Tredinnick: Before my hon. Friend sits down—I think that he was about to do so—may I thank him for his remarks? I am sure that knowing there is some progress is welcome, but I remind him that there have been many working groups in different guises over a long period, and the image that springs to mind is of the long grass. I am grateful to him for suggesting that I might be part of the...

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Herbal Medicine (Regulation) (9 Jul 2013)

David Tredinnick: When I was working on my speech for today, I looked at the lists of those who are regulated by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care and the Health and Care Professions Council and I could not for the life of me work out why some were on one list and some on the other. There is another debate to be had on that issue.

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Herbal Medicine (Regulation) (9 Jul 2013)

David Tredinnick: I am extremely grateful to have the opportunity in this debate to raise the issue of herbal medicine with my hon. Friend the Minister. The issue has been on the agenda for many years, and I hope that by the end of the debate we can shed light on where we are going. I look forward to my hon. Friend’s remarks. On Friday, I was at the Royal Society summer science exhibition. The Royal...

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Herbal Medicine (Regulation) (9 Jul 2013)

David Tredinnick: I am grateful to my hon. Friend, who is ever supportive. He has tabled questions and acted for his constituents on this issue, as he always does. He is right. Three quarters of the population of the United Kingdom have used traditional Chinese medicine, herbal medicine, phytotherapy or one of the other disciplines sometimes classed as complementary. There is a huge swell of people out there...

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Herbal Medicine (Regulation) (9 Jul 2013)

David Tredinnick: I am grateful to the hon. Lady, with whom I discussed the debate earlier, and I will be coming on to the options available to the Minister. In fairness to him, I know that he has been focused on the matter, with his colleague in the Lords, the noble Earl Howe, a distinguished Minister. However, before I look at the solutions and some of the obstructions and problems—why we are not...

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Herbal Medicine (Regulation) (9 Jul 2013)

David Tredinnick: My hon. Friend illustrates the point. The European directive on traditional herbal medicinal products now prevents third-party manufactured herbal medicines being prescribed to patients by practitioners, as well as individualised herbal medicines prescribed by practitioners and manufactured by a third party. One of the communities in the herbal medicine diaspora most affected is that of...

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Herbal Medicine (Regulation) (9 Jul 2013)

David Tredinnick: The hon. Lady is right. We all saw the headlines in the Sunday papers, and the coalition Government are intending to do just that. I hope that we can get some powers back. One of the solutions that I will propose—I know that you have an impartial role as Chair, Mr Bone, but I have heard mention of the European Union pass your lips in the past—may not even involve the European...

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Herbal Medicine (Regulation) (9 Jul 2013)

David Tredinnick: That is pretty much right. The fact is that the Poles were trying to get round the system, were caught out and European law was applied effectively, but we are not in the same situation. I am sure the Minister has looked at the matter carefully, so will he please tell us his view? As far as I can see, there is absolutely no justification for using Poland and that view is widely held in the...

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Herbal Medicine (Regulation) (9 Jul 2013)

David Tredinnick: I have seen evidence in Europe that when doctors combine the two, the allopathic drugs bill can be reduced because herbs tend to be less expensive. That may worry manufacturers, and it has long been said that they are actively campaigning against this. They would be wise to accept that working with natural medicine is good for sales of conventional medicine.

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Herbal Medicine (Regulation) (9 Jul 2013)

David Tredinnick: You are ever courteous, Mr Bone, and I will not detain the Chamber much longer. I am acutely aware of not taking up other people’s time. The Minister has three options. The Health Practitioners Council was the original idea. The Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care oversees the regulatory work of other organisations but is not as robust. A special licensing system...

Estimates 2013-14 — Department of Health — Health and Care Services (3 Jul 2013)

David Tredinnick: I wish to run through some of the points in our report for the benefit of the House and to suggest that there is one area of supply to the health service that is not being considered enough. At the moment we have two legs on the stool, rather than three. Before I do that, I would like to congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Charnwood (Mr Dorrell)—I used to know him as the...

Estimates 2013-14 — Department of Health — Health and Care Services (3 Jul 2013)

David Tredinnick: There are two separate issues here: herbal medicine and homeopathic medicine. The Science and Technology report was very controversial. I now have the honour to serve on the Science and Technology Committee, and we have been looking at these issues. Let me tell the hon. Gentleman that in France, 70% of the population and all pregnant women use homeopathy. Some doctors are trained in both...
