International Health Regulations: Amendments - Question ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: We are talking about two very different things here. One is ensuring that, as a country, we are armed with the information as quickly as possible so that we can act; getting the genomic sequencing of the original strain was vital for us to be able to prepare a vaccine so quickly, so that information sharing is vital. In terms of the impact on our ability to act as a sovereign Government, that...

International Health Regulations: Amendments - Question ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: I do agree: I do not think that it would help to postpone it. I had this exact conversation with the American Health Secretary, who is very aware that we are getting nearer and nearer to an American election and, for all the countries to be able to co-operate fully, the timing is right to reach a solution now. However, we will not reach an agreement at any cost or anything which might...

International Health Regulations: Amendments - Question ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: I thank the noble Baroness. All Members of the House, when we had a good Question on the take-up of Covid vaccines, agreed that information supporting the take-up is a vital health message to get across. To any detractors, I say very firmly that it is not the view of the Government, and I know that it is not the view of nearly all noble Lords.

International Health Regulations: Amendments - Question ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: Again, my noble friend will agree with me that our ability to assess the vaccine more quickly than any other country and roll it out very quickly was a key asset for the UK. Clearly, we will not do anything that will put that at risk.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Nutrition ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: The Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) is a committee of the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID), and provides independent scientific advice to ministers, as well as risk assessments on nutrition and related health issues. The SACN undertakes robust consideration of the evidence for its risk assessments, before providing dietary recommendations. Ministers are...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Tropical Diseases: Disease Control ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: United Kingdom blood services test blood donations for West Nile virus (WNV), if it is indicated by the information provided in the individual’s donor safety questionnaire that they have travelled to an area where WNV is circulating. Other tests for malaria, cytomegalovirus, and the parasite trypanosoma cruzi may be conducted if the donor has a history of recent travel to an area where one...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Healthy Start Scheme ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: The Department keeps the eligibility criteria for the Healthy Start scheme under continuous review. There are no current plans to change eligibility for the scheme. The NHS Business Services Authority also keeps the application methods for the NHS Healthy Start scheme under review, and there are no current plans to change the process for under 18 year olds. Those who are under 18 years old,...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Tropical Diseases: Disease Control ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: The outbreak of an emerging infectious disease is a categorised risk, in the 2023 National Risk Register. Working closely with the Department and NHS England, the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has a programme of work in place to plan and respond to this risk. The UKHSA continues to monitor the global epidemiology of infectious diseases, to inform the assessment of risk to the United...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: General Practitioners: Internet ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: We published our Delivery Plan for Recovering Access to Primary Care in May 2023, which sets out how we are moving toward a Modern General Practice (GP) model. This plan is backed by £240 million of retargeted funding, going to providing digital services, with the goal of increasing access. The plan sets out how, by improving digital access to GPs, we will free up capacity for those patients...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Alcoholic Drinks: Misuse ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: The Government keeps all official health data related to alcohol consumption and alcohol related harms under regular review. The 2021 Public Health England publication, Monitoring alcohol consumption and harm during the COVID-19 pandemic, found that increases in alcohol consumption since the beginning of the pandemic tended to be among people who were already heavy drinkers before this...

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

Lord Markham: NHS England is making good progress in delivering its Three year delivery plan for maternity and neonatal services, a copy of which is attached. The plan is backed by £186 million of funding per year from April 2024, which sets out how maternity and neonatal care will be made safer, more personalised, and more equitable for women, babies, and families. For example, many local maternity and...

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

Lord Markham: NHS England has committed to rolling out perinatal pelvic health services (PPHS) across England as part of the Three year delivery plan for maternity and neonatal services, and has recently published a national service specification and implementation guidance, which will aid local National Health Service commissioners in establishing them. A copy of the plan is attached. As of February 2024,...

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

Lord Markham: As of 25 April 2024, 39 out of 42 integrated care boards (ICBs) have published Equity and Equality Action Plans. NHS England’s regional teams are supporting the remaining ICBs to publish their plans. NHS England has provided more than £20 million in funding to local maternity and neonatal systems (LMNS) each year to lead improvement of maternity and neonatal care around objectives set out...

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.
