Lynne Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what consideration has been given to independent mental health advocates being given access to electronic patient records; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Ivan Lewis: The Mental Health Act 1983, as amended by the Mental Health Act 2007, provides that independent mental health advocates may, where the patient consents, require the production and inspection of any records related to the patients detention, treatment or aftercare. This includes electronic patient records.
Philip Davies: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much was paid in (a) employment and (b) compensation claims by the NHS to its employees in each of the last three years; and how many claims are awaiting payment. 
Ben Chapman: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment he has made of the efficacy of the NHS complaints procedure when handling complaints from patients treated by GSUP-2 contractors; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Bradshaw: Health service patients regarding treatment through the general supplementary contracts would follow the standard national health service complaints procedure. It is a core function of strategic health authorities and primary care trusts to manage their patient experience including local complaints handling procedures. To date, no formal assessment of the procedures has been undertaken.
