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 process, but I...

[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 Society...

[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 getting a...

[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 Union. To...

[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 for...

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...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Children’s Heart Surgery (12 Jun 2013)

David Tredinnick: My right hon. Friend’s statement will have given great hope to all those in and around Leicestershire who campaigned to keep Glenfield hospital, and we welcome the acceptance that the original site selection was flawed and the implicit acceptance of bias against the east midlands and against the east of the country in general. On a positive note, if we are going to have the clinical case...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: A and E Departments (21 May 2013)

David Tredinnick: Does my right hon. Friend agree that we could make better use of the ambulance service and that if we had more fully trained ambulance men who could assess whether a patient needed to go to hospital, we could reduce A and E admissions that way?

Health and Social Care (13 May 2013)

David Tredinnick: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Vale of Clwyd (Chris Ruane). I entirely agree with what he said about mindfulness and the need for NICE to ensure that it is available for the treatment of stress in particular. That is all the more important now that we have a Government who have put patient choice at the heart of the health service, a fact that will become more and more...

Health and Social Care (13 May 2013)

David Tredinnick: The Secretary of State will be aware of widespread concern among the herbal medical community that there is no statutory regulation on that area in the Care Bill. Does he agree that if polymorbidity is to be dealt with we must have firm regulation, and that just licensing herbs, as the European Union wants, would destroy the industry?
