Health and Social Care: Junior Doctor Contract: Exception Reporting (18 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: Our junior doctors work incredibly hard caring for patients around the clock. We introduced exception reporting in 2016 and it has been a major step forward in ensuring safe working. The British Medical Association, NHS Employers and the Department reviewed the effectiveness of exception reporting as part of the junior doctor’s contract agreement, which we announced last week. Revisions...

Health and Social Care: Junior Doctor Contract: Exception Reporting (18 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: The hon. Gentleman is right: every exception report has to be addressed. Changing the rota is one possible outcome. He will recognise that there are other possible outcomes as well: the doctor may agree to work extra hours and be given extra time off; timing of the ward rounds in clinics may be adjusted, so that educational opportunities can be taken: and timing of the ward rounds can be...

Health and Social Care: NHS Staff Retention (18 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: The interim people plan sets out how the NHS will become a great employer with the culture and leadership needed to retain staff. NHS programmes to retain its highly talented staff are already having an impact. There are now more nurses working in the NHS than at any other time in its 70-year history. In addition, about 1 million NHS workers will benefit from the new Agenda for Change pay and...

Health and Social Care: NHS Staff Retention (18 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I thank my right hon. Friend for his welcome for the pensions proposals and the consultation. The Department has received initial advice from the Independent Reconfiguration Panel on the Future Fit hospital reconfiguration. The Secretary of State is currently considering that. He will respond to the IRP’s advice in due course, and I will ensure that he informs my right hon. Friend.

Health and Social Care: NHS Staff Retention (18 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I thank my right hon. Friend for his comments on saving the hospital department—that is very important. He is right to raise the important role of the nursing associates, who deliver hands-on care in a range of complex settings. Thousands of nursing associates began training in 2017 and in 2018. Health Education England is leading a programme to recruit more than 7,500 into training in...

Health and Social Care: NHS Staff Retention (18 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: The hon. Lady knows that a wholly-owned subsidiary is created as a legal entity. It is 100% owned by NHS organisations. It is also the case that local trust board members sit on the boards of those subsidiary entities. It is therefore appropriate that the local organisation takes that decision.

Health and Social Care: NHS Staff Retention (18 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: The hon. Gentleman is right—immigration has benefited the national health service. This Minister, this Secretary of State and this ministerial team celebrate the fact that global immigration has benefited the NHS. From 2021, the new system will allow people with skills to come to the UK from anywhere in the world. It will remove the cap on skilled migrants, abolish the requirement to...

Health and Social Care: NHS Funding: Cambridgeshire (18 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: NHS England is responsible for the allocation of resources to clinical commissioning groups. Funding is distributed on the basis of a weighted capitation formula informed by the Advisory Committee on Resource Allocation. Population estimates are provided by the Office for National Statistics. This year, as the hon. Gentleman will know from a debate that we had last week, ACRA recommended and...

Health and Social Care: NHS Funding: Cambridgeshire (18 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: As I pointed out to the hon. Gentleman last week, we recognise that historically, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG has received less funding per person than neighbouring CCGs, but as I also pointed out to him, the CCG has received an absolute increase of 5.7% in 2019-20, bringing the funding up to £1.1 billion. We had a disagreement about the figures, because I could not agree the figures...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (18 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: The House will not be surprised to know that the hon. Gentleman has raised this with me and my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State on a number of occasions. I am happy to reconfirm to him that we do consider it a top priority to make sure that all of his constituents get the care they need.

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (18 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: As I said in response to an earlier question, we are putting out a consultation on pensions that will allow for looking at a number of issues, including the taper.

Parliament as a Workplace: University Hospital Coventry (13 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I thank the hon. Member for Coventry South (Mr Cunningham) and congratulate him on securing this important debate. I thank the other Members who have contributed. I want to start this debate as I try to start all debates in the House when talking about the NHS, by congratulating and thanking the staff who work in the NHS—in particular, given the nature of the debate, the staff who work in...

Parliament as a Workplace: University Hospital Coventry (13 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: My hon. Friend makes an important and valuable point, and as a result of this debate, I pledge to write to the hospitals to ensure that the ongoing discussions between the various parties are as inclusive as possible. As I said earlier, I will happily meet him, the hon. Member for Coventry South, and other Members.

Parliament as a Workplace: University Hospital Coventry (13 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: My hon. Friend is assiduous in representing his constituents and making his points. As I have said, these discussions have not yet concluded, and it would be hugely inappropriate for me or any politician to try to prejudge the right clinical outcomes. When those clinical outcomes have been worked through and the discussions finalised, I have no doubt that University Hospitals Birmingham and...

Parliament as a Workplace: University Hospital Coventry (13 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: It would have been inappropriate for me to be involved in clinical discussions, but I hear what the hon. Gentleman says. Before we have that meeting, I will write to him on that point. I hope that we will have a meeting relatively soon, so that we can finalise what should be done. Service change is often controversial. We should rightly scrutinise any service change, but that should be based...

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG: Funding Pressures — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (11 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: It is a pleasure, as ever, to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I thank the hon. Member for South Cambridgeshire (Heidi Allen) for bringing forward this debate. I know there are not many Members in the Chamber, but that should not in any way undermine or take away from the importance of this debate, which is clearly of great interest to her. She spoke powerfully about the...

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG: Funding Pressures — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (11 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I am sorry—either I did not make myself clear, or the hon. Lady misheard me. I said that the population growth was 0.6% above the England average over the last four years. The number that she cited of the growth being below the average is from ONS predictions for the next two or three years.

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG: Funding Pressures — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (11 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: This is prejudging the tennis season, in that we can go backwards and forwards, but let me say for the record that if I misled the hon. Lady I apologise wholeheartedly. I agreed that the population growth of the Cambridge and Peterborough CCG area has been 0.6% above the England average over the last four years; I did not intend to suggest that it is expected to be 0.6% above the England...

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG: Funding Pressures — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (11 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I will say two things to the hon. Lady. First, the reflection of the formula and the increase in the money is coming through this year and next year. We have spoken about the additional per capita funding that is coming through.

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG: Funding Pressures — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (11 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: All I have are the percentage increases in additional per capita funding for 2018-19 and 2019-20. I will seek inspiration to confirm the absolute totals, and if that inspiration reaches me while I am still on my feet, obviously I will relay it to the hon. Gentleman. If not, I am happy to confirm that I will write to him. My point is that the NHS England allocation is based on the ACRA...
