Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Health Services ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence’s (NICE) guideline, Myalgic encephalomyelitis (or encephalopathy)/chronic fatigue syndrome: diagnosis and management, published in October 2021, outlines the expectations for inpatient care for patients with severe myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), also known as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), who require hospitalisation. The National...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Maternity Disparities Taskforce ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: The Maternity Disparities Taskforce has met six times. The taskforce will meet again in due course, to further explore and consider evidence-based interventions to tackle disparities in maternity outcomes and experience. The taskforce is currently focused on developing a targeted pre-pregnancy toolkit, aimed at women from ethnic minorities and deprived areas, which will encourage healthy...

Homecare Medicines Services (Public Services Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note ( 2 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: My Lords, I am a bit slow in getting up. I will blame my son Xavi, who is in the Gallery. I was playing with him a bit too much this weekend, so I apologise. Now I am up, I will be fine. I start by thanking noble Lords, and particularly the noble Baroness, Lady Morris. This is a very important area about which, I freely admit, 10 days ago I knew very little. I guess it was my noble friend...

NHS England: Ovarian Cancer - Question ( 2 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: We are writing to NHS England about NHS London’s social media post, to reiterate the expectation that biological sex should be front and centre of all health-related information. Removing language around biological sex has the potential for unintended health consequences. The Government are committed to upholding the rights of women and girls, which is why we are consulting on updates to...

NHS England: Ovarian Cancer - Question ( 2 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: First, I thank the noble Baroness for all her work in this space. I will continue to work closely with her, including by writing to and meeting the GMC as necessary on all these matters. On her second point, while I respect that many clinicians may wish to keep their information private, we have to understand that, for many people, it is the patient’s right to be treated by someone of a...

NHS England: Ovarian Cancer - Question ( 2 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: Yes, absolutely. We all come at this from the perspective of making sure that health is front and centre, which is why the primary descriptors should be “man” and “woman”, as I think we all agree. Beyond that, we should clarify that “woman” may mean a “person with ovaries”—but the primary descriptor is “woman”. I hope that we can all agree on that.

NHS England: Ovarian Cancer - Question ( 2 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: Yes. Once again, I come at this from the perspective that health is the primary factor here. Clearly, a person’s biological sex is a key part of the information on their record that any clinician needs to know, so that absolutely needs to be primary.

NHS England: Ovarian Cancer - Question ( 2 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: Yes. To reiterate, I think that we should always use “man” or “woman” as the primary descriptor. For people with English as a second language, “woman” is very understandable. We can then be inclusive by saying a “person with ovaries”, so that we are absolutely clear. My remit here is health, so I want to make sure that most people, especially if English is their second...

NHS England: Ovarian Cancer - Question ( 2 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: I am not sure that there was a question there, so I might take the easy option of thanking the noble Lord for his comments—and for maybe muddying the waters—and moving on.

NHS England: Ovarian Cancer - Question ( 2 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: Absolutely, and I hope noble Lords have seen that I am keen to learn from wherever. I would be interested to understand more in this case. As I think we are all saying in these arguments, it is about making sure that we are being sensitive and inclusive in language, but that we are also being very clear in our language about what we mean so that health always comes first.

NHS England: Ovarian Cancer - Question ( 2 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: I thank the noble Lord; he is always very good at bringing up some of those cases. I will look into it and make sure that we do that.

NHS England: Ovarian Cancer - Question ( 2 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: I guess what I am trying to say here—again, always with my health hat firmly on—is that I want to make sure that when we describe something in a health sense, I want that person to know that we mean them because we are doing something which applies to them, often in the case of ovarian or cervical cancer. By saying “woman”, obviously in most cases that will make it very clear that it...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department of Health and Social Care: Correction to Written Parliamentary Questions ( 2 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: I would like to amend a written answer that I gave to the House on 26 March. An incorrect figure was provided in my reply to HL3163, which was asked by Lord Alton. For the MHRA, the PQ requested the number of Yellow Card reports received for Mirtazapine each year from 2014 to the present for sexual dysfunction and persistent sexual dysfunction. The reply stated that the MHRA has received a...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Hospital Wards: Females ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: The Government is committed to upholding the rights of women and girls and ensuring they are properly represented in healthcare services, communications, and guidance. That is why we are currently consulting on updates to the NHS Constitution for England to shape the principles and values of the National Health Service and ensure the privacy, dignity and safety of all patients, including...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Avian Influenza ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) works closely with partners to monitor, investigate, and periodically assess the risk to human health of avian influenza (influenza A(H5N1)). This includes monitoring human cases, patterns of transmission of influenza A(H5N1) in animals, surveillance of humans exposed to infected birds, and assessing how well circulating viruses are matched to vaccines....

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Schools: Mental Health Services ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: Mental health support teams now cover approximately 44% of pupils in England and we are working to increase this coverage to 50% of pupils by March 2025. The further rollout of mental health support teams will be subject to future spending decisions.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: NHS: Standards ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: It is the legal duty for integrated care boards (ICBs) and their partner National Health Service foundation trusts under section 14Z44 of the NHS Act 2006 to consider sustainability when exercising their functions. ICBs and their partner NHS foundation trusts must consider section 1 of the Climate Change Act 2008, concerning United Kingdom net zero emission targets, and section 5 of the...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Respiratory Syncytial Virus: Vaccination ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: The independent Joint Committee for Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) advises the Department on the approach to vaccination and immunisation. The JCVI evaluation of the cost-effectiveness of a respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) programme was based on the health benefits of an infant RSV programme and the potential healthcare cost savings from preventing cases and hospitalisations. The...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Bowel Cancer: Screening ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: The national IT system for the NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme does not routinely collect data that could identify groups that have a lower-than-average uptake rate of the fecal immunochemical bowel cancer screening test. Research has found that groups which are less likely to take part in bowel screening include men, people from ethnic minority backgrounds, and people in more deprived...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Screening ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: We are aware of the issues faced by some people with physical or mental health conditions that can make attending a screening appointment, or carrying out a home test, more difficult. Currently, national screening IT systems do not have the facilities to flag conditions for individuals which could make it more difficult to carry out the bowel cancer screening, fecal immunochemical test (FIT)...
