NHS: Sustainability and Transformation Plans - Question (20 Mar 2017)

Baroness Pitkeathley: I thank the Minister for his reply but, in view of the problems about which we heard in the last Question and the fact that accident and emergency departments and other hospital services deal with many social care needs, does the Minister agree that it is vital that there is sufficient capacity in the community to manage the demands for community services which closures will inevitably...

Social Care in England: Older People - Question (20 Mar 2017)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, we heard this morning that the domiciliary care scene is under pressure and many domiciliary care agencies are in fact not tendering for contracts. The care home sector is also under pressure. The people who are not giving up, as the Minister points out, are the family carers— 6 million of whom are picking up the pieces from an inadequate social care system. May I press him a...

Adult Social Care: Funding - Question (16 Mar 2017)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, some of us in this House are veterans of social care reviews that have led to very little change. Can the Minister therefore tell the House whether he is confident that the Green Paper will lead to urgent action? Will it consider controversial issues such as helping families prepare for care, savings products in the insurance market and perhaps even care vouchers?

National Health Service: Nurses - Question (22 Feb 2017)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, we hear constantly that better integration between health and social care is the way to solve the problems that both services are currently experiencing. What progress is being made with training nurses who can work across both health and community services?

Residential Care - Question (6 Feb 2017)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, does the Minister agree that where there is a shortage of residential or, indeed, nursing home care beds, the onus on care falls on the families? Will he take this opportunity to update his honourable friend in the other place, the Minister for Health, who last week exhorted the nation to care for its elderly relatives? He apparently forgot that there are 6.5 million people who...

Digital Economy Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (2 Feb 2017)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, it may be for the convenience of the House if those noble Lords who wish to leave do so before I call the next amendment. Clause 15: Internet pornography: requirement to prevent access by persons under the age of 18

Mental Health and NHS Performance Update - Statement (9 Jan 2017)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, I cannot resist the opportunity to remind the new Minister, as I always used to remind his predecessor, about the importance of Britain’s 6 million family carers, when we look at both the issues that he has brought to our attention today. First, he talks about speeding up discharge. You cannot speed up discharge in the social care sector unless you also provide support to the...

Health and Social Care - Motion to Take Note (15 Dec 2016)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, there are very few people who know as much about patient participation as my noble friend Lord Harris, so it is entirely fitting that he should lead this debate. I join others in sending condolences to the noble Lord, Lord Prior, and regret that he is not here—by which I mean no disrespect to the noble Baroness, Lady Chisholm, who I know will have more than an adequate response...

NHS: Community Pharmacies - Question (6 Dec 2016)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, the Minister mentioned clinical skills. Does he agree that in rural areas in particular, community pharmacies play a role much wider than their clinical function in giving advice, information and sign-posting to patients and their families? Does he agree that that is a very important part of their function that should continue?

Social Care - Motion to Take Note (1 Dec 2016)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, we have had an excellent debate and I thank all noble Lords who have taken part, especially the noble Baroness, Lady Cavendish, for her thoughtful speech which makes us eager to hear more from her. The topics covered today have been as wide-ranging as the issue itself but there has been agreement about the crisis which exists, if not yet on how to address it. I did not of course...

Social Care - Motion to Take Note (1 Dec 2016)

Baroness Pitkeathley: That this House takes note of the challenges in the current system of social care and of proposals for reviewing it and for longer-term reform of the system.

Social Care - Motion to Take Note (1 Dec 2016)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, here we are again. This is not the first time I have led a debate on social care in your Lordships’ House and I have been wont to call those who join me the usual suspects, because we are the relatively small band who bang on about this subject whenever we get the opportunity. There are new faces as well as old ones here today. It is particularly welcome that the noble Baroness,...

Adult Social Care - Question (15 Nov 2016)

Baroness Pitkeathley: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is their response to the warning by the Care Quality Commission in their State of Care report, published in October, that adult social care is approaching “tipping point”.

Adult Social Care - Question (15 Nov 2016)

Baroness Pitkeathley: I thank the Minister for his usual courteous reply, but I think he knows that the funding he has announced there for the better care fund is both too little and too late. Does he agree that there have never been so many challenges for the social care system? There is terrible pressure on the NHS and on caring families, and many people have no care at all at home, however great their needs....

NHS: Cancer Patients - Question (9 Nov 2016)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, does the Minister accept that early diagnosis depends on patients or potential patients recognising the symptoms? Notwithstanding the pressure on services, are the Government continuing to encourage patients to recognise potential cancer symptoms?

NHS: Primary and Community Services - Question (7 Nov 2016)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, the Minister has acknowledged that discharge from hospital is an important time for carers. You can literally become a carer overnight when your relative is discharged without warning. The carers strategy is currently being refreshed. Would the Minister consider an input into the carers strategy that meant it was incumbent on the National Health Service to consult carers and get...

Trustees - Question (3 Nov 2016)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, I join the noble Lord, Lord Shinkwin, and the Minister in praising the work of trustees—and, indeed, the trustee work undertaken by so many Members of your Lordships’ House. Does the Minister agree that we need to widen the range of people who become trustees? What are the Government doing to promote interest in trusteeship among younger people and people from diverse backgrounds?

NHS: Health and Social Care Act 2012 - Motion to Take Note (8 Sep 2016)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, I too thank my noble friend for bringing forward this important debate, and I congratulate him on getting the time. I always thought that the best thing about the Health and Social Care Act was its title. I was not alone in thinking that. It gave us hope that, at long last, the issue of social care would be put on a par with health in the delivery of services. Over the many years...

Civil Society and Lobbying - Motion to Take Note (8 Sep 2016)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, like other noble Lords, I thank my noble friend for bringing forward this debate today and declare my interests as set out in the register. I am speaking today in my capacity as chair of the recently established Select Committee on Charities. I also thank my noble friend Lord Foulkes for his kind remarks—I will pay him later. The committee was established in June of this year to,...

NHS: Unsafe Hospital Discharges - Question (15 Jun 2016)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, I ask often in this House and elsewhere about co-operation between health and social care. Does the Minister agree that one thing we lack is a cohort of people, be they nurses or paid professional carers, who can work across health and social care in hospital and follow patients into the community? Will the Minister update the House on what is happening to encourage that kind of cohort?
