Revised Government Proposals Relating To Continence Products And Services

EDM number 2093 in 2007-08, proposed by David Taylor on 17/07/2008.
Categorised under the topic of Health services.

That this House notes that an estimated average of more than 9,000 people in each Parliamentary constituency are affected by continence problems; acknowledges that high quality continence products allow users to live regular lives, thus contributing to society and reducing burdens on NHS and social services; welcomes the improvements in the latest June 2008 proposals on how the NHS pays for these products and services, but is nevertheless concerned that it has been proposed that any future changes in price will be aligned to NHS efficiency targets; urges the Government to put patient needs first; therefore calls for this link to be removed; further notes with concern that the true cost of additional support services and home delivery of continence products - which is often needed for mobility impaired people with complex needs - are not adequately reflected in the revised proposals; expresses concern about the uncertainty of what training is needed for healthcare professionals to administer Appliance User Reviews; further acknowledges the important work that has been undertaken by the Urology Trade Association (UTA) in trying to work together with the Government on this issue; and therefore calls on the Government to continue to work with the UTA and revise their latest proposals in order to ensure that any changes to the current payment system do not impact negatively on users who heavily rely on the support service they currently receive to manage their daily lives.

This motion has been signed by a total of 39 MPs.
