Health and Care Bill — New Clause 16 — Annual Report on Alcohol Treatment Services: Assessment of Outcomes — 22 Nov 2021 at 19:11
The majority of MPs voted against requiring an annual report on alcohol treatment services.
The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was titled: Annual report on alcohol treatment services: assessment of outcomes and stated:
- (1) The Secretary of State must lay before each House of Parliament at the start of each financial year a report on—
- (a) the ways in which alcohol treatment providers have been supported in tackling excess mortality, alcohol related hospital admissions, and the burden of disease resulting from alcohol consumption, and
- (b) the number of people identified as requiring support who are receiving treatment.
- (2) Alongside the publication of the report, the Secretary of State must publish an assessment of the impact of the level of funding for alcohol treatment providers on their ability to deliver a high-quality service that enables patient choice.”
The rejected new clause was accompanied by the following explanatory statement from its proposer:
- This new clause would require the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to make an annual statement on how the funding received by alcohol treatment providers has supported their work to improve treatment and reduce harm.
