Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (24 Jul 2018)

Jon Ashworth: I welcome the Secretary of State to his post. May I take a moment to thank all the NHS and social care staff who are caring for vulnerable patients in this intense summer heat? The new Secretary of State inherits waiting lists at 4.3 million, with more than 3,000 patients waiting more than a year for an operation. He inherits a situation in which 1,700 patient requests for hip and knee...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (24 Jul 2018)

Jon Ashworth: Since 2010, the NHS has suffered the biggest financial squeeze in its history, and the rationing that I referred to is a consequence of that squeeze. Let me ask the Secretary of State about general practice, which he will know is facing a severe workforce crisis, with GP numbers down by 1,000 and many GPs worried about the patient safety implications of the Babylon app, which we have already...

Leaving the Eu: Airbus Risk Assessment: Childhood Obesity Strategy: Chapter 2 (25 Jun 2018)

Jon Ashworth: Urgent Question) To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to make a statement on the Government’s childhood obesity strategy.

Leaving the Eu: Airbus Risk Assessment: Childhood Obesity Strategy: Chapter 2 (25 Jun 2018)

Jon Ashworth: We have a childhood obesity crisis, and we need action. Of course, many of the policies announced today seem familiar. That is because they are actually our policies. Supporting the Daily Mile initiative is a Labour policy. Supporting a ban on the sale of energy drinks to under-16s is a Labour policy. Proper food labelling is a Labour policy. A target of halving childhood obesity is a Labour...

Gosport Independent Panel: Publication of Report (20 Jun 2018)

Jon Ashworth: I thank the Secretary of State for the advance copy of his statement. I welcome the tone of his remarks and the apology that he has offered on behalf of the Government and the national health service. This is a devastating, shocking and heartbreaking report. Our thoughts must be with the families of the 456 patients whose lives were shortened. I, like the Secretary of State, pay tribute to...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (19 Jun 2018)

Jon Ashworth: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (19 Jun 2018)

Jon Ashworth: Very brief, Mr Speaker. Yesterday, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care said that he would place the details of the funding settlement in the Library, but the paper has not yet been deposited. Mr Speaker, given the implications for higher tax and spending, will you use your good offices to ensure that that paper is deposited as soon as possible?

Health and Social Care: NHS Workforce (19 Jun 2018)

Jon Ashworth: Yesterday the Prime Minister said that “current workloads are not sustainable”— is that any wonder after eight years of Tory cuts and austerity? The Minister knows that the number of health visitors in the workforce is falling, and that health visitors are vital to improving child health and wellbeing outcomes. No new public health money was announced yesterday; new money...

Health and Social Care: NHS Workforce (19 Jun 2018)

Jon Ashworth: This Government are breaking the Tory manifesto promise and raising taxes, yet they cannot even answer basic questions about health visitor numbers. The NHS workforce deliver the constitutional performance targets, including the 18-week referral-to-treatment target, and targets for accident and emergency and cancer treatment. Will the Minister reassure patients and the taxpayers whose taxes...

NHS Long-Term Plan (18 Jun 2018)

Jon Ashworth: I thank the Secretary of State for advance copy of his statement. Today’s announcement is the clearest admission that eight years of cuts, of the tightest financial squeeze in its history and of privatisation have pushed the NHS to the brink. Is not the announcement of new potential legislation the clearest admission that the Health and Social Care Act 2012 has been a wasteful mess and...

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Jon Ashworth: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Jon Ashworth: I really do think the Secretary of State has some brass neck. The Tory party voted against the creation of the NHS 20-odd times. That is the reality of what happened in 1948, including on Third Reading in this House. It is a Labour creation.

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Jon Ashworth: I beg to move, That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, that she will be graciously pleased to give directions that the following papers be provided to the Health and Social Care Committee: written submissions received by Ministers since 8 June 2017 on proposals for reform of the Health and Social Care Act 2012, on the creation of accountable care organisations in the NHS,...

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Jon Ashworth: My hon. Friend makes the point well. I believe about 50 walk-in centres have closed and there are another 50 whose future has been reviewed.

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Jon Ashworth: I thank my hon. Friend for her contribution. I know that she, as the relatively new Member for Lincoln, will be campaigning for the future of health provision in her constituency. The response of the Prime Minister to those cancelled operations this winter was to shrug her shoulders and say, “Nothing is perfect”, but by the end of the winter reporting 185,000 patients, often...

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Jon Ashworth: My hon. Friend has, with great eloquence, explained why failing to plan properly on the workforce is such a false economy. It means that trusts are spending more and more on locums and expensive agencies. I trust that no Conservative Member will try to pretend in this debate that it is possible to reduce beds, reduce staff, cut social care and fail to invest while patient numbers are...

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Jon Ashworth: My hon. Friend has hit the nail on the head. The problem is that, when the Government allow our national health service to deteriorate by such a scale and push it into this level of crisis, they are essentially forcing people, often reluctant refugees from a public NHS, into self-pay options. That is what happened last time the Conservatives were in government and it is happening again.

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Jon Ashworth: I will give way to the former health Minister.

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Jon Ashworth: I am delighted that GPs in Broxtowe have been rated outstanding, but patients in Broxtowe will be concerned that bed occupancy rates at Nottingham University Hospitals Trust are at 94.9%. That is what people in Broxtowe and across the east midlands are concerned about.

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Jon Ashworth: I know that Councillor Jon Collins of Nottingham City Council is a talented man, but he does not run Nottingham University Hospitals Trust. The people running the health trusts are the chief executives, who have to rely on the budget settlements that the right hon. Lady and her party have been denying—
