Opposition Day — Weekly Publication of Accident and Emergency Statistics — Plan for Tackling Hospital Deficits — 24 Jun 2015 at 16:24
The majority of MPs voted against weekly publication of A&E data and against calling on the Government to set out how it will tackle hospital deficits.
The motion rejected by the majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That this House
- notes that hospital A&E departments have now missed the four-hour A&E target for 100 weeks in a row;
- further notes that trusts are predicting record deficits this year;
- believes the pressures on hospitals are a consequence of declining access to out-of-hospital services under this Government, including fewer older people receiving social care and more people waiting a week or more for a GP appointment;
- further believes the increasing bill for agency staff is also adding to the pressure on hospitals;
- notes that the Government plans to stop the weekly reporting of A&E data;
- believes this decision will make the NHS less transparent and make it harder for patients to judge the performance of their local hospital; and
- calls on the Government to reinstate the publication of weekly A&E data and to set out how it will tackle hospital deficits in 2015 in order to protect services.
