NHS: Community Pharmacies - Question (6 Dec 2016)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for that Answer. We are at one in agreeing that community pharmacy has an important part to play in the nation’s health. Is my noble friend aware of the report carried out by PwC, which showed that community pharmacy contributes £3 billion net to the NHS, the public sector, patients and wider society? That is through just 12 additional services; it...

Junior Doctors: Industrial Action - Statement (25 Apr 2016)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I thank the Minister for setting out some of the difficulties that junior doctors face. I declare an interest: I run a company which trains a lot of junior doctors. Ten years ago I did the work on professionalism for Dame Carol Black and we produced our report, Doctors in Society. We said that professionalism is signified by the values, behaviours and relationships that underpin the...

NHS: Maternity Care — Question for Short Debate (5 Feb 2015)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, my interests are in the Lords’ register. In addition, I am a vice-president of the Royal College of Midwives, and patron of the NCT and of Independent Midwives UK. Like others, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Harrison, for initiating this debate and for the briefing that I have had from other bodies, not least the Women’s Institute, of which I used to be a very active member. The...

Alcohol Consumption — Question (27 Jan 2015)

Baroness Cumberlege: Does my noble friend agree that there is great merit in keeping the pubs open and that single men who are lonely and depressed are very often welcomed into pubs? Their spirits are raised—in all senses of the word—and they then are not a burden on the National Health Service.

Assisted Dying Bill [HL]: Committee (2nd Day) (16 Jan 2015)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I listened with great care to what the noble Lord, Lord Empey, said. The noble and learned Lord has been very helpful in saying that he will negotiate with people and talk further about this. Could he not think a little more widely, because there is real concern about the medical profession as a whole being involved in this? I am also concerned about the nursing profession and other...

National Health Service — Motion to Take Note (8 Jan 2015)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, my interests are in the House of Lords register but I should declare that I am executive director of Cumberlege Connections and of Cumberlege Eden & Partners. I, too, congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Turnberg, on initiating this debate. He is a truly remarkable man and is probably one of the most qualified and experienced of your Lordships when it comes to analysing the health...

Learning Disabilities: Health and Care Services — Question (3 Dec 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords—

Assisted Dying Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (7 Nov 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: I return to the point raised by my noble friend Lord Jopling about 41 hours. Does the noble Baroness envisage that there would then have to be a turnover of the staff with that person because we do not want people to die alone? I am thinking of how nurses operate their shift systems. This would possibly mean that you would get different people unknown to the patient coming in to sit with them...

Assisted Dying Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (7 Nov 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I totally agree with what the noble and gallant Lord has just said. I come from a medical family. I am not a doctor, but I was made a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, which asked me whether I would chair a working party to look at medical professionalism. That comes very much into these amendments. We spent a very long time thinking about this extremely difficult issue. Do...

Health: Midwives — Question (22 Jul 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, will my noble friend rejoice with me that independent midwives now have professional indemnity? Does he agree that they make a very valuable contribution to maternity services, especially for vulnerable women?

Assisted Dying Bill [HL]: Second Reading (18 Jul 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, my interests are declared in the register. I am aware of my limitations. I am not a philosopher, a theologian or a humanist. What I do understand is the health service. As a GP’s daughter and someone engaged in the NHS, social services and charities, I have seen the services from many different angles. The people who work in the health service have to be practical, highly skilled...

Assisted Suicide — Question (25 Jun 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords—

Assisted Suicide — Question (25 Jun 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, is my noble and learned friend aware that Keir Starmer, who was the DPP until just last year, told the Commission on Assisted Dying, chaired by the noble and learned Lord, Lord Falconer, that, “the law works well in practice”? In the light of that, does my noble and learned friend agree that there is nothing unusual about the way the law on assisted suicide works? We expect the...

National Health Service: Nursing Staff — Question (16 Jun 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that one of the most encouraging aspects of the nursing profession is the number of senior nurses who have gone on to be chief executives and board members in the NHS, bringing all the skills of nursing to the leadership of hospital trusts and clinical commissioning groups?

Elderly People: Abuse — Question for Short Debate (14 May 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the incidence of elder abuse across the nation.

Elderly People: Abuse — Question for Short Debate (14 May 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I start by declaring my interests which are in the Register of Lords’ Interests. I am very grateful for the opportunity to have this debate to ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of elder abuse across the nation, albeit I appreciate that we are in the sunset of this parliamentary Session. According to the Office for National Statistics, there are 3...

Health: Liver Disease — Question (6 May 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords—

Immigration Bill — Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (12 Mar 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendment 66A on behalf of the noble Baroness, Lady Masham of Ilton, who sadly has another commitment that she has to honour this evening. Successive Governments have very good track records in safeguarding the public’s health. When I was a Minister, I was deeply involved in the Health of the Nation strategy, which was lauded at the time by the World Health...

Immigration Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (10 Mar 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: Amendment 63, which I tabled, proposes four new subsections. Proposed new subsection (1A) states: “Notwithstanding subsection (1), any pregnant woman shall be treated as ordinarily resident”, and proposed new subsection (1B) states: “However, subsection (1A) shall not apply where there is evidence the woman has entered the UK for the purpose of obtaining healthcare”. I think that is...

Immigration Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (10 Mar 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I have two amendments in this group—Amendments 59 and 63. I declare my interests, which are in the Lords’ register. We received a very interesting letter from my noble friend Lord Howe over the weekend. His letter explains that Clauses 33 and 34 are designed to break, or perhaps put a stop to, the activity of health tourism. It is absolutely right that we should do that. Having...
