Ms Rosie Winterton:
There is no specific waiting list for dialysis. Dialysis is often an emergency treatment,
and patients with no kidney function will die in a matter of weeks if they do not receive dialysis. For patients whose disease has been identified well in advance of end-stage renal failure, dialysis begins at a time that they and their consultant feel is appropriate.
Mr. Hepburn: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many people died from chronic kidney disease whilst waiting for NHS treatment in (a) Jarrow constituency, (b) South Tyneside, (c) the North East and (d) England in each year since 1997. 
Annette Brooke: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the average waiting times were for young people to see child and adolescent mental health services staff in the last three years for which data are available. 
Caroline Flint: Information is not collected in the format requested. The most recent information available is from the 2005 child and adolescent mental health service (CAMHS) mapping exercise. In November 2005, there were 26,207 children and young people waiting to be seen by specialist CAMHS in England, a reduction of 2,674 from the previous year.
In November 2005 52 per cent. of new cases were seen by specialist CAMHS within four weeks, an additional 33 per cent. within 13 weeks, and a further 10 per cent. within 26 weeks. Five per cent. of children and young people waited over 26 weeks to be seen by specialist CAMHS.
Ms Rosie Winterton: Individual national health service organisations are under a legal requirement to publicise complaints procedures. Information on how much money has been spent on this activity is not collected centrally.

David Davis: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what progress has been made since September 2006 with the new model of midwifery care announced by the Northern Lincolnshire and Goole hospitals NHS trust. 
The proposed changes to midwifery services were implemented in January 2007. The newly formed teams now cover the geographical areas of Goole and Isle, Barton, Brigg, town centre north and town centre south. The Yorkshire and the Humber
strategic health authority (SHA) reports that the teams are now staffed by both midwives and midwifery support workers, a newly developed post at national vocational qualification (NVQ) level 3. The teams are now practicing from either midwifery centres (Goole, Crowle, Brigg and Ashby) or from childrens centres (West Street, Henderson Avenue and Castledyke). A few antenatal clinics continue to be offered from general practitioner surgeries.
Mr. Hancock: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what recent discussions she has had with (a) the Food Standards Agency, (b) Ofcom, (c) Grocer magazine and (d) others on the nutrient profiling model; and if she will make a statement. 
Caroline Flint: The development of the Food Standards Agencys (FSA) nutrient profiling model was subject to extensive public consultation prior to being agreed by the Agencys Board in 2005, and both the Department and the FSA have received a number of representations on the model since.
I have had regular discussions with the FSA on the model while it was being developed for use by Ofcom, to enable them to target new rules on television advertising of foods high in fat, salt or sugar, without having an unhelpful impact on the advertising of healthier options.
I have had several discussions with the Chair of Ofcom, and wrote in support of the model as an appropriate basis for underpinning regulatory intervention in relation to broadcast food advertising to children on 6 December 2005.
Mr. Laws: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what estimate she has made of the proportion of children who were (a) overweight and (b) obese in each of the last 10 years, broken down by age. 
Caroline Flint: The information is not available in the format requested. Data on obesity and overweight prevalence among children are available from the Health Survey for England. Data on obesity and overweight cannot be provided for individual ages, over a time series. The tables show the prevalence of obesity and overweight for children aged two to 10 and 11 to 15, for the last 10 years for which data are available.
