National Health Service (Procurement, Patient Choice and Competition) (No. 2) Regulations 2013 — Motion to Annul (24 Apr 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I start by declaring an interest. My interests are in the Lords' Register, but I particularly want to declare the two companies which I control, run and support. They do not provide treatment and care to the NHS, but they do provide training opportunities to NHS staff. I am also involved with a number of charities and voluntary organisations. I think that the Health and Social Care...

National Health Service (Procurement, Patient Choice and Competition) (No. 2) Regulations 2013 — Motion to Annul (24 Apr 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, we could have a whole debate on profit. Every person who sells their talents and does work has to profit. You cannot live without a profit unless you are receiving social care. Profit, of course, funds all our pensions, and a whole lot of other things-but I do not want to go into all that, because I think it is irrelevant to this debate. I think that we should just look at what the...

National Health Service (Procurement, Patient Choice and Competition) (No. 2) Regulations 2013 — Motion to Annul (24 Apr 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, of course I accept that. We accept that in the NHS, do we not? You have only to look at the recent inquiries to know that the NHS is not perfect. What I am trying to put over is that by using a wider range of providers you can improve services for the NHS, but of course you need regulation and somebody ensuring that the quality is high. It is not perfect in all cases-of course I...

Health: Midwives — Question (25 Feb 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: To ask Her Majesty's Government, in the light of the continuing increase in births, what is their response to the recent report by the Royal College of Midwives, which states that there is a shortage of around 5,000 midwives.

Health: Midwives — Question (25 Feb 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper. In so doing, I declare an interest as a fellow and vice-president of the Royal College of Midwives. My other interests are in the Lords register.

Health: Midwives — Question (25 Feb 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for that very encouraging reply. I suspect that every single Member of your Lordships' House has been touched by a midwife. They are a remarkable and very committed profession. Is my noble friend aware that although there is what the Royal College of Midwives describes as a tipping point in the increase in the number of midwives attending women in labour, the...

NHS Bodies and Local Authorities (Partnership Arrangements, Care Trusts, Public Health and Local Healthwatch) Regulations 2012: Motion to Regret (5 Feb 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I suspect that my noble friend has got the message now that we are not totally enamoured of these regulations. I think back to when we had the White Paper, which was published in July 2010. I remember, as my noble friend Lady Jolly has said, how excited I was then by the fact that in local Healthwatch we were to have an organisation that really would be the collective voice of...

NHS Commissioning Board: Mandate — Statement (13 Nov 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords-

NHS Commissioning Board: Mandate — Statement (13 Nov 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I, too, congratulate the Government on the mandate. When we were debating the Bill, I requested that the mandate should be short, precise and well-focused, and it is all of those things. I particularly welcome the focus on the importance given to improving standards in maternity services. The mother's experience and the start of life are very important and have a huge impact on the...

Health: Obesity — Question (12 Nov 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will include obesity as a priority for primary care in the Quality and Outcomes Framework for general practitioners.

Health: Obesity — Question (12 Nov 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I beg to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper. In so doing, I declare my interests as set out in the House of Lords register. Perhaps I ought to add another: I love my food.

Health: Obesity — Question (12 Nov 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for that full Answer. Does he agree that one of the successes in primary care has been the introduction of the Quality and Outcomes Framework, which incentivises GPs? Unfortunately, one of the incentives is to keep a register of obese patients-nothing else, just a register. In fact, that incentivises them to keep people fat. Does my noble friend also agree...

NHS: Women Doctors — Question (6 Nov 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I declare an interest, and my interests are in the register. Does my noble friend agree that some of the brightest women in the land choose a medical career and are well equipped to take on positions of leadership? Does he also agree that they are under-represented on the boards of the new clinical commissioning groups? Can he suggest to the national Commissioning Board that it...

National Health Service (Clinical Commissioning Groups) Regulations 2012 — Motion of Regret (16 Oct 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I object to that. I said that they have a role on health and well-being boards, which is where the strategy is set out, and that is where the NHS, local authorities, Healthwatch and other organisations come together.

National Health Service (Clinical Commissioning Groups) Regulations 2012 — Motion of Regret (16 Oct 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I declare an interest, which is in the Register of Lords' Interests. I want briefly to address two points. The first regards the wording that the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, has tabled for the debate, which concerns the prohibition of, "a registered nurse or secondary care specialist if employed by a body which provides any relevant service to a person for whom the Clinical Commissioning...

Older People: Health and Social Care — Question (18 Jun 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, one of the most important levers for change in the Health and Social Care Act is the mandate that has been agreed between the Secretary of State and the NHS Commissioning Board. Does my noble friend consider that one could include some of the principles that are established in this very good report within that mandate?

Health: Local Healthwatch Organisations — Question (11 Jun 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that in the light of the comparative studies that have been made between different health systems in developing countries, it is very disappointing that the National Health Service comes last out of seven when it comes to patient and public involvement? It does well on other factors but not on this one. Does my noble friend agree that although taxpayers'...

Health and Social Care Bill: Third Reading (19 Mar 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: As a fellow of the Royal College of Nursing and the Royal College of Midwives, I very much regret that I have been unable to take part in the previous debates initiated by the noble Baroness, Lady Emerton. I regret that for many reasons, not least because I had the privilege of introducing the noble Baroness into your Lordships' House, and what a good thing that was. The noble Baroness is a...

Health and Social Care Bill: Third Reading (19 Mar 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I have no intention of testing the opinion of the House this evening. We have negotiated long and hard with my noble friends Lady Northover and Lord Howe. It has been a very interesting experience. Those noble Lords who have supported me by putting their names to my amendments have tutored me well in the art of negotiation. It has occurred to me that clearly you can negotiate only...

Health and Social Care Bill: Third Reading (19 Mar 2012)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, Amendment 56 is simpler than the amendment I tabled on Report but it is necessary because I need some undertakings. I know that other noble Lords also seek those. The amendment concerns Public Health England. Both amendments found favour across the House in the previous debate, as I hope Amendment 14 will in this one. I thank noble Lords who have put their names to the amendment. I...
