Mental Health Strategies, 2003-04 National Survey of Investment in Mental Health Services
Ms Rosie Winterton: This information is shown in the following table. It corrects data about mental health-related hospital admissions resulting from cannabis use, given to the hon. Member in the written answer on 30 January 2006, Official Report, column 176W. I have written to the hon. Member to explain the earlier error.
|Finished admission episodes in the national health service in England 1996-97 to 2005-06, for patients with a primary diagnosis of a mental or behavioural disorder due to the use of cannabis: combined male and female; all ages; all strategic health authorities|
A finished admission episode is the first period of in-patient care under one consultant within one healthcare provider. The primary diagnosis is the main reason why the patient was in hospital. Admissions do not represent the number of in-patients, as a person may have more than one admission within the year. The data refer to all patients with a primary diagnosis of a mental or behavioural disorder due to cannabis use and whose care was led by a consultant registered under any speciality.

Ms Rosie Winterton: The Departments review The regulation of non-medical healthcare professions made reference to the fact that professional indemnity cover is becoming a condition of registration for all professions. The introduction of compulsory professional indemnity cover for midwives will require secondary legislation. A three-month public consultation will form part of that legislative process. No date for this has yet been set.
Mr. Francois: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what progress her Department has made with providing nursing support to mothers of children under the age of two years as referred to in the report of the Spending Review 2004. 
Mr. Ivan Lewis: Support from midwives, health visitors and other health professionals is provided to families through the Child Health Promotion Programme, the universal child health service aimed at preventing ill health and promoting health and well- being. The core service is set out in standard 1 of the national service framework for children, young people and maternity services. However, all families are different and some need more support than others. Health visitors and their teams who deliver the child health promotion programme will make sure that the most at risk children have more support.
We are also testing an intensive nurse-led home visiting programme for the most at risk families. The Nurse Family Partnership Programme has been developed over 30 years in the United States where it has achieved impressive reductions in accidental and non-accidental injuries. We are testing this approach in 10 sites across England where specially trained health visitors and midwives are delivering the programme to first-time young parents.
Mr. Lansley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will place in the Library a copy of her presentation to the Cabinet on the NHS of 19 April 2007, referred to by the Prime Minister in his speech to the Trimdon Labour Club of 20 April 2007. 
Andy Burnham: The Department does not collect information centrally on individual national health service organisations expenditure on litigation, which should be recorded within their financial accounts. However, the NHS Litigation Authority (NHSLA), records expenditure on claims made against any of the three clinical and two non-clinical negligence schemes. The NHSLA is responsible for this information, which they make available in Factsheet 2 on their website at:
|Payments made by NHSLA in respect of negligence claims against the NHS|
|(1) £119,000 in 2001-02 reflects the amounts reimbursed to trusts as part of the call-in and included within CNST payments.|
Expenditure relates to paid and accrued but excludes reserves.
Until the call-in of CNST claims by NHSLA in April 2002, member organisations paid part of the cost of claims made under CNST. Excesses are still payable on the non-clinical schemes (LTPS and PES). The cost of these excesses, being carried by individual NHS organisations, is not included in the NHSLAs figures. As part of the call-in process it reimbursed the above-excess costs already incurred by member trusts on these claims. Thus the apparent bulges in these years do not reflect an increase in overall claims expenditure, but rather one-off reimbursements of expenditure already incurred (and accounted for) by member trusts.
