Covid-19 Vaccination: Coronary Disease - Question (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: The Government are taking action to tackle cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease, including through supporting improved uptake of the NHS Health Check England cardiovascular disease prevention programme. There is no evidence linking Covid-19 vaccines to increased levels of coronary heart disease. All vaccines used in the UK are authorised only once they have met robust standards...

Covid-19 Vaccination: Coronary Disease - Question (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: I thank my noble friend for this question. The ONS has provided this information and made it available for research purposes to make absolutely sure that we get to the bottom of this issue. For the understanding of noble Lords, every medical vaccine has side-effects, but the MHRA has investigated this, and the side-effect that people are worried about is heart inflammation. One to two people...

Covid-19 Vaccination: Coronary Disease - Question (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: The noble Lord is quite right. There were much wider effects and impacts in the lockdown, and alcohol intake was one of them; mental health, particularly of our children, was another. My sincere hope is that these are the kinds of issues that the Covid inquiry should really be investigating: the wider impacts on society caused by lockdown.

Covid-19 Vaccination: Coronary Disease - Question (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: I am sure I speak for the whole House when thanking the noble Lord for his expert understanding and insights. As he said, the evidence is very clear that while no vaccine is risk-free, what it saves you from is much greater. The very firm advice is that you are much better off having the vaccine.

Covid-19 Vaccination: Coronary Disease - Question (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: The main thing that the vaccine did was prevent any bad effects if you did get Covid. While it might not have reduced transmission much, its main benefit was that it reduced the effects if you had it, as well as hospitalisations and deaths. Making Covid a less serious disease, basically, enabled us to open up the country and we were one of the first to get going again because we knew that the...

Covid-19 Vaccination: Coronary Disease - Question (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: The noble Lord is absolutely correct. The MHRA study on heart inflammation, which he mentioned, said that there is that side-effect for one to two people per 100,000—unfortunately, the noble Lord seems to have been one of them. However, if you get Covid it affects 150 people per 100,000. On balance, if you have not had the vaccination, your risk is 22 per 100,000. The statistics are very clear.

Covid-19 Vaccination: Coronary Disease - Question (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: Absolutely. We are all very aware of the damage done by all the myths around the MMR vaccine 20 to 30 years ago and the impact that has had on people. The more we can get the message out, the better. As the noble Baroness, Lady Merron, asked me yesterday, we have learned that it is about making sure that we communicate to all groups so that we can make sure that ethnic minorities and other...

Covid-19 Vaccination: Coronary Disease - Question (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: Deaths from heart disease among those under 75 are down by about 20% compared with 2010, which is a clear trend. Notwithstanding that, we are very aware—Sir Chris Whitty is concerned about this—that Covid meant that a lot of people did not get basic heart and blood pressure checks. That is why we have introduced the Midlife MoT, which is designed to give people a 10-year risk analysis;...

Covid-19 Vaccination: Coronary Disease - Question (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: The noble Baroness is absolutely correct: a vaccine helped you avoid not just heart disease but all the other impacts of Covid that she mentioned, including long Covid and a whole list of other things. Again, the undeniable advice is that it is much better to have the Covid vaccine.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Abortion (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs formulates policy on animal welfare. The Animal Sentience Committee holds functions relating to the effect of government policy on the welfare of animals. By contrast, the determination of foetal sentience and its implications for abortion and neonatal medical practice is reached through professional consensus and clinical guidance,...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Integrated Care Boards: Finance (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: The financial year-end reports for integrated care boards are still in progress and not yet finalised. We anticipate that final, audited reports will be completed and available in July 2024.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Abortion (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: When considering its approach to legislation, in all cases the Government must be guided by whether the aims of that potential bill can already be implemented through other reasonable and established non-legislative means.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Abortion (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: The Government does not formulate policy on foetal sentience. The review and determination of foetal sentience and its implications for abortion and clinical practice is reached through professional medical consensus and clinical guidance. A recent and comprehensive review into Fetal Awareness Evidence was recently carried out by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists....

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Health Services: Staff (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: We recognise that the NHS Practitioner Health service is valued by many doctors. NHS England is reviewing the service as part of a wider review of its mental health and wellbeing offer to National Health Service staff. It was confirmed on 15 April 2024 that the service will continue to accept new patients from primary and secondary care whilst this review is undertaken over the next 12...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Health Insurance: Private Sector (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: Private medical insurers purchase services from independent sector providers who are responsible for delivering healthcare. All providers of healthcare are regulated by the Care Quality Commission and follow a set of fundamental standards of safety and quality below which care should never fall, while the General Medical Council is responsible for regulating doctors in the United Kingdom.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Health Services: Waiting Lists (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: NHS England publishes Referral to Treatment Waiting Times data for elective treatment monthly in an online-only format, including for 2022 and 2023. There are no plans to revise waiting times figures for these years.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Ticks (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has an active programme to promote awareness of tick-borne diseases among local authorities, health professionals and the public by 2025 in line with the Third National Adaptation Programme. This includes Lyme disease and tick-borne encephalitis. UKHSA has worked to develop a toolkit for local authorities and key stakeholders to raise awareness of the...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Lecanemab: Licensing (22 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency will review any marketing authorisation application received, and will consider the drug with regard to quality, safety and efficacy. We do not comment on application status or applications in progress, until a full and timely decision is made with consideration of the recommendation of Commission on Human Medicines as needed. We...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Surgery: Standards (22 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: The Government welcomes the recent manifesto of the Centre for Perioperative Care and will consider its recommendations. The Government is already working with NHS England to improve perioperative care. In May 2023, NHS England published guidance in an online-only format setting out five core perioperative care requirements relating to the care of adult patients awaiting planned inpatient...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Surgery: Standards (22 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: In May 2023, NHS England published guidance in an online-only format setting out five core perioperative care requirements relating to the care of adult patients awaiting planned inpatient surgery. Implementation of these core requirements will reduce post-surgery complications and length of stay and reduce the likelihood of short notice postponement or cancellations occurring for avoidable...
