Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Executive Committee Business: Budget (No. 2) Bill: Second Stage ( 2 Gor 2024)

Diane Dodds: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. I respect your ruling. Minister, as you are here in the House, I want you to acknowledge that there is work to do with the Health Department to avoid its continuous underspends. The Northern Ireland Audit Office report published on 24 May records that, in 2018-19, the underspend was £32 million; in 2019-2020, it was £69 million; in 2021-22, it was £25 million;...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Executive Committee Business: Budget (No. 2) Bill: Second Stage ( 2 Gor 2024)

Diane Dodds: I welcome the opportunity to contribute to the Budget debate, and I will confine my remarks to my policy area of health and social care. As a first step, I reiterate my and my party's priority for our health and social care system. I believe that, despite the political wrangling, all of us across the House want to see a health service that is fit for purpose and serves us and our families in...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Executive Committee Business: Budget (No. 2) Bill: Second Stage ( 2 Gor 2024)

Diane Dodds: No, I want to make progress. I have absolutely no doubt that this is a difficult Budget for all Departments. The Health budget accounts for 52% of the total block grant to Northern Ireland and, in the Budget allocation, was awarded over 50% of the additional funding that was made available to Northern Ireland. In the last couple of years, the Health budget has seen a considerable increase in...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Clinical Radiologists/Clinical Oncologists: Shortfall ( 1 Gor 2024)

Diane Dodds: Minister, you will agree that early detection for cancers is extremely important. Recently, I met Cathy Brokenshire, the widow of the late James Brokenshire. We do not have early screening for lung cancer in Northern Ireland, despite lung cancer being one of our most prolific killers of people with cancer. Will you look at the idea of having screening for lung cancer and come back to the...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Ministerial Statements: North/South Ministerial Council: Health and Food Safety ( 1 Gor 2024)

Diane Dodds: Thank you, Minister. My question follows on from what your statement said about cancer. We all know that cancer does not respect boundaries, persons or anything else and that all-island cancer research is a good thing, but we need our own cancer research strategy for Northern Ireland. Will you commit to bringing one forward in this mandate?

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Controlled Schools Sectoral Body (25 Meh 2024)

Diane Dodds: T7. Mrs Dodds asked the Minister, given that many people are concerned that the controlled sector is disadvantaged in that it does not have a specific body to look after its needs and given that the independent review of education recommended that, at the very least, there should be a function within EA to do that in a separate directorate, whether he will give an update on where that sits....

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Controlled Schools Sectoral Body (25 Meh 2024)

Diane Dodds: Thank you, Minister. Will it require legislation to create a separate body for the controlled sector? Is that, potentially, in the long run, the only way forward to ensure that there is equity between all education sectors?

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Spirit AeroSystems (24 Meh 2024)

Diane Dodds: T2. Mrs Dodds asked the Minister for the Economy, aware that he met her party colleague Gavin Robinson on Spirit AeroSystems, what specific representation he had made to the company to try to keep the Belfast operation intact and save jobs. (AQT 432/22-27)

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: Spirit AeroSystems (24 Meh 2024)

Diane Dodds: Thank you, Minister, for that. It is really important. A large ecosystem of companies across Northern Ireland, including my Upper Bann constituency, supplies to bigger companies such as Spirit. Have you had contact with those companies, and do you recognise the importance that that large employer has for their survival?

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Opposition Business: Cross-border Healthcare (18 Meh 2024)

Diane Dodds: I thank the Member for taking an intervention. I am always astounded that people put so much emphasis on cross-border healthcare. Will the Member agree that there is an inherent inequity in that people who want to avail themselves of that service have to provide the money up front before they can claim it back and that, even then, they may not be able to claim all of it back? That is an...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Private Members' Business: Cancer Research: All-island Cooperation (17 Meh 2024)

Diane Dodds: I beg to move the following amendment Leave out all after "cooperation in cancer research" and insert: "with both the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland; further recognises that clinical experts in this field have stated that developing oncology innovation clusters, by pooling resources, could help to drive research and investment in oncology, domestically and internationally; calls...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Private Members' Business: Cancer Research: All-island Cooperation (17 Meh 2024)

Diane Dodds: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. Before we get on to the meat of the amendment, I want us to focus on the real enemy here, and that is cancer, which affects everyone, regardless of race, creed or religion. Macmillan Cancer Support estimates that cancer kills 167,000 people throughout the United Kingdom every year. That is a colossal death toll. In proposing our amendment, we fully recognise that...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Executive Committee Business: Executive Legislation Programme 2024 (11 Meh 2024)

Diane Dodds: Like many others here this morning, I welcome the legislative programme. People across Northern Ireland will be glad to see the work that the Assembly is doing and will recognise that this is, potentially, a first start at getting the Assembly moving on issues that really matter. I particularly welcome the Health Minister's intention to introduce a public health Bill. As was noted in the...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Executive Committee Business: Executive Legislation Programme 2024 (11 Meh 2024)

Diane Dodds: No, I want to finish. The Department of Health needs to tell us how it will make progress on the stroke strategy and address the crisis in children and young people's services. In April, I asked the previous Minister of Health when he would bring forward his plan for the reorganisation of the health service. He told me on 15 April that he would do it in a couple of weeks. Obviously, he has...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Executive Committee Business: Executive Legislation Programme 2024 (11 Meh 2024)

Diane Dodds: — we will not see an improvement in Health unless we see reorganisation, and we currently have no plan —

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Executive Committee Business: Executive Legislation Programme 2024 (11 Meh 2024)

Diane Dodds: — to scrutinise. We need to see the plan.

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Question for Urgent Oral Answer — The Executive Office: D-Day Events: Non-attendance of the First Minister (10 Meh 2024)

Diane Dodds: I am glad that the deputy First Minister was there to represent Northern Ireland. However, the First Minister was absent, and it gives the lie that she is "a First Minister for all". Was she absent because, as someone who regularly eulogises IRA terrorists, she was ashamed to stand with real soldiers who fought for liberty and democracy? Was she absent because she was ashamed of the Southern...

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Health Service Transformation Plans (10 Meh 2024)

Diane Dodds: 6. Mrs Dodds asked the Minister of Health when will he bring forward plans for transformation of the health service. (AQO 560/22-27)

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Health Service Transformation Plans (10 Meh 2024)

Diane Dodds: It is unfortunate that, at a time when we know that the health service needs significant reform in order to provide better outcomes for patients, we have had a history of what has happened since 2016 from the Minister. There are many points from your answer, Minister, that I could pick up on, but I will I will pick up on one: multidisciplinary teams were set up —

Cynulliad Gogledd Iwerddon: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Health Service Transformation Plans (10 Meh 2024)

Diane Dodds: — initially as a consequence of money from the DUP confidence-and-supply agreement. So far, only 30% —
