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...

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

Stephen Hammond: The hon. Lady will know that some of those core mandated services are providing core services as well. I am happy for the hon. Member for Cambridge to correct me, but my understanding is that an additional £8.5 million will go into the CCG. If he wishes to write to me with his figures, I will happily source those numbers for him. However, I have just received inspiration from somewhere, for...

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

Stephen Hammond: The Prime Minister has rightly been telling people that there is a huge commitment to put more money into the NHS. Throughout the debate, I have recognised that the moneys that the CCG historically received were below the target for CCGs. I have stated that more money is now coming into the CCG and that NHS England is committed to moving all CCGs to target. Although he may say that is a...

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

Stephen Hammond: That will partially be a decision for the CCG. I do not recognise exactly what the hon. Gentleman has said; I have said that an additional amount of money is going in. I accept that there are nationally mandated core services that need to be provided by the CCG. I stress again, as I have throughout the debate, that I accept that the CCG has historically been underfunded against population...

Interim NHS People Plan (5 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: The NHS published its interim people plan on Monday, and I laid a written ministerial statement at the earliest opportunity yesterday. The plan is a first, but critically important, step in ensuring that the NHS has the people, leadership and culture it needs to deliver the NHS long-term plan. The interim people plan has been developed by Baroness Dido Harding, the chair of NHS Improvement,...

Interim NHS People Plan (5 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: The House will have listened to the hon. Gentleman. It is important to put out some facts, which were missing from his fact-free analysis. For example, we have had 52,000 more professionally qualified clinical staff in the last nine years, almost 16,500 more doctors and over 17,000 more nurses on our wards. He set out a list of promises, but with little detail and no means to pay for them. He...

Interim NHS People Plan (5 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: Perhaps that is the soundbite that the hon. Gentleman and his colleagues—including the hon. Member for Dewsbury, who is shouting across the Chamber yet again—should remember.

Interim NHS People Plan (5 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: My right hon. and learned Friend the Father of the House is completely correct. We want to make sure it is clear that the EU nationals who work in the national health service—there are more than 63,000 of them—are valued and make a huge contribution to our NHS. He will probably be aware that my right hon. Friends the Secretary of State and the Home Secretary are in continuing...

Interim NHS People Plan (5 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I thank the hon. Lady for welcoming the plan. I think she will accept that this is a good interim plan; it is a stepping stone. She asks what we are doing to fill nursing places. I point out yet again that we are increasing applications and ensuring that there are 5,000 extra clinical placements available, which is a 25% increase on last year. Far from being complacent about the number of...

Interim NHS People Plan (5 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: Again, my hon. Friend was absolutely right at the start of his question to point out that this is a key stepping stone to making sure that the long-term plan works. He is also absolutely right to point out that we recognise and have taken extraordinarily seriously the difficulties that a number of clinicians have had with the pension tax changes. He will know from his time in the Department...

Interim NHS People Plan (5 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: The right hon. Lady is right to be angry because her constituents should not be waiting that long. If she wishes to speak to me afterwards, I will take that up directly, with her, on behalf of her constituents. The right hon. Lady says that we are not taking this seriously and not acting urgently enough. She will know that this interim people plan makes sure we will have not only more people...

Interim NHS People Plan (5 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: My hon. Friend will know, because I have been in debates with him before, that I recognise the exceptional work that those two all-party groups do. He will know from the long-term plan that we have set out new commitments on diagnosis for all cancers and for cardiac. He will know that the reason why we have set out an interim people plan and will then set out a final people plan is that a...

Interim NHS People Plan (5 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I am sure they will also have said that one of the things Health Education England has explicitly set out is that one of the biggest barriers to more nurses was that there was not the placement capacity. I am sure Sir David Behan will also have set out that he therefore welcomes entirely the 5,000 extra clinical placements that are being made available, which is a 25% increase on last year....

Interim NHS People Plan (5 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: My hon. Friend makes a very powerful statement on behalf of her constituents about the change of leadership. I am obviously aware of the change of leadership, including the departure of the chief executive, and I am aware that it raises a number of issues, which she and I may wish to have a meeting to discuss. She is right to ask whether we are tackling the culture to make sure that we have...

Interim NHS People Plan (5 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I am confident that we are putting in place the measures that will allow those targets to be met. There is a comprehensive expansion of mental health services, with an additional £2.3 billion being invested over the next four years, which will make sure we resolve the problems the hon. Lady has highlighted. In particular, 350,000 more children will get the support they need, which I am sure...

Interim NHS People Plan (5 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: I thank my hon. Friend for that question. The Department will launch the consultation at the end of this month. It will set out the proposals, which we spoke about yesterday, to introduce greater pension flexibility. They are designed to take away the disincentives not only for senior clinicians but clearly for GPs. That consultation will last for the normal length of time, and I hope we will...

Interim NHS People Plan (5 Jun 2019)

Stephen Hammond: The Government are taking action specifically on the points that the right hon. Lady made. We committed to increase the number of undergraduate medical school places by 1,500, and 630 are already in place.
