Civil Society — Motion to Take Note (18 Jul 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: Can the Minister answer my specific question about social investment and the Government’s view on what proportion of social investment will eventually find its way into the sector?

Civil Society — Motion to Take Note (18 Jul 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, we are indeed all grateful to my noble friend for giving us the opportunity to have this far-ranging debate on civil society. However, I must say that at this stage of a debate, I feel a bit like the bishop who, when asked to make a speech about sin, stood up, said that he was against it and sat down again. If I am asked about civil society I can say, just as simply, “I am for...

Care Bill [HL]: Committee (6th Day) (16 Jul 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who have spoken in what my noble friend Lord Lipsey called this “bits and pieces” group, although charging and access was the theme that linked the amendments. I am naturally disappointed that the Minister cannot accept my amendments, but reassured by his restating his intention so far as carers and charges are concerned, and by the statement that he has...

Care Bill [HL]: Committee (6th Day) (16 Jul 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, I wish to speak to Amendment 89B as well as Amendment 89A, as they are both amendments about the circumstances in which a carer can be charged for services. Carers UK—I declare an interest as its vice-president—has estimated that carers save the UK economy £119 billion per year. That is a statistic that I never tire of giving your Lordships. Local authorities recognise the...

Care Bill [HL]: Committee (5th Day) (9 Jul 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, I support almost all the amendments in this group because I acknowledge their importance, particularly from the point of view of the Joint Committee, which similarly placed a great deal of store on the provision of information and advice. Indeed, it suggested that there should at the very least be a national campaign to promote the new arrangements to those who might use them. I...

Care Bill [HL] — Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (3 Jul 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, I am grateful to all noble Lords who have spoken and for the recognition that all noble Lords have shown of the problems of carers, as well as the commitment to giving carers the support that they so much need. It is recognition of the fact that, however good a health and care system we put in place, the vast bulk of care will continue to be provided by our families and friends. I...

Care Bill [HL] — Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (3 Jul 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, I will speak also to Amendments 79E, 79H and 88C, all of which are about parent carers, and later to Amendments 88E and 88F, which are about other aspects of carers. The Care Bill is drafted to apply to adult carers of adults. This means that parents of disabled children are not included in the important new rights and duties introduced by the Bill. The amendments in this group seek...

Care Bill [HL] — Committee (4th Day) (3 Jul 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, I apologise to the noble Baroness, Lady Campbell. I was so eager to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Jolly, on Amendment 79, and I did not know that she was wishing to speak. I particularly wanted to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Jolly, in speaking in support of Amendment 79, on which my name appears as well as hers and the noble Lord, Lord Warner, who was unavoidably absent today,...

Care Bill [HL] — Committee (4th Day) (3 Jul 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords—

Care Bill [HL] — Committee (4th Day) (3 Jul 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, this has been a wide-ranging and well informed debate. It has focused on anxieties about the role and competence of the CQC. The anxieties seem to focus on questions about whether the job of the CQC is doable at all, doable in the very short timescale, or doable with current resources. Suggestions about how to address the anxieties and concerns have included piloting new structures,...

Care Bill [HL] — Committee (4th Day) (3 Jul 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, in the unavoidable absence of my noble friend Lord Warner, I shall move Amendment 74 and speak also to Amendment 75. These two amendments give an opportunity to put into the Bill further emphasis on the importance of integration. Amendment 74 requires reviews by CQC of regulated health providers to cover the integration of those services with other relevant services. Amendment 75...

Care Quality Commission: Morecambe Bay Hospitals — Statement (20 Jun 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: The Government’s support for the current leadership and the newly launched New Start consultation will be welcome to all those of us who know the current people. Can the Minister assure the House that the Government will stand firm in this support when the tabloid press starts calling, as it surely will, for more heads to roll? Will he further assure the House that he believes that the last...

Women: Board Membership — Question (17 Jun 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: Does the noble Baroness agree that one of the problems is that the boards are not sufficiently flexible in what they see as the requisite experience for serving on boards? For example, many women who hold senior positions in the voluntary and charitable sector are never considered because their experience is not considered relevant.

Care Bill [HL] — Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (10 Jun 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: I speak in support of Amendment 51 on the patient and carer voice. I know that there is sometimes resistance to patient and carer representatives on bodies such as this. One often hears professionals say, “They only speak from their own experience”. Yes, they do speak from their own experience—and that is actually the powerful and most informative bit. That is not to say that patients...

Care Bill [HL]: Committee (2nd Day) (10 Jun 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, I speak in support of the amendment. It is absolutely vital from the point of view of the patient and the family that the workers with whom they come into contact have an understanding of the whole of their situation. The training and experience of such workers has to encompass that whole situation. For example, a person who is admitted to hospital quite suddenly with a stroke has...

Health and Social Care — Question (5 Jun 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, is any work being done on the outcomes of preventive work? I speak, for example, of installing a handrail to prevent a fall that results in an unnecessary and expensive hospital admission. These are often overlooked in terms of outcomes. Will the Minister tell the House if any work is being done on preventive work?

Care Bill [HL]: Second Reading (21 May 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, like the noble and learned Lord who has just spoken, I—and several noble Lords speaking today—was a member of the Joint Scrutiny Committee. Like the noble and learned Lord, I join the thanks to the officials, the chairing and my fellow members. I very much welcome the changes that the Government have made to the draft Bill as a result of the committee’s report. Your Lordships...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (4th Day) (14 May 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, as the Care Bill announced in the gracious Speech will have its Second Reading next week, like some others I have decided to keep my powder dry today and focus only on why the Bill is needed, not on its content. Your Lordships will know that there is nearly universal agreement that the social care system is not fit for purpose. It was set up originally for a country where men died...

Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Third Reading (26 Mar 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: If Amendment 2 is agreed to, I cannot call Amendment 3 for reasons of pre-emption. Amendment 2 Moved by Lord Tope 2: Clause 7, page 12, line 26, leave out subsections (4) and (5) and insert- "(4) Sections 106BA, 106BAA and 106BB of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, and subsection (5) of this section, are repealed at the end of April 2016. (5) The Secretary of State may by order amend...

Mid Staffordshire Foundation Trust Inquiry — Statement (26 Mar 2013)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, the principle of putting the needs of patients first will be welcomed by every Member of this House. However, does the Minister agree that this means looking at care in an integrated way, since the patient experience is very rarely one of either hospital or social care but a mixture-sometimes a very haphazard mixture-of the two? Can the Minister therefore give the House more detail...
