There has been a significant increase in heart attacks and related health issues since the rollout of the Covid-19 vaccines began in 2021. This needs immediate and full scientific investigation to establish if there is any possible link with the Covid-19 vaccination rollout.

16 Written Questions in the current parliament

(View all written questions)
Written Questions can be tabled by MPs and Lords to request specific information information on the work, policy and activities of a Government Department
13th Sep 2023
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how many and what proportion of NHS managers are registered by (a) the General Medical Council, (b) the Nursing and Midwifery Council and (c) another specified professional regulatory body.

The Department does not hold data on the proportion of National Health Service managers that are registered by the General Medical Council (GMC), the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) or another specified professional regulatory body.

Healthcare professional regulators, including the GMC and NMC, do not have a separate register for NHS managers or a registration category of ‘NHS manager’. The role of healthcare professional regulators is to set and maintain the standards for healthcare professionals seeking to practise in their respective professions in the United Kingdom.

14th Mar 2023
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how many (a) operations, (b) clinic appointments, (c) episodes of clinical care, (d) hours of clinician time for supporting professional activities and (e) hours of clinical care were cancelled during the junior doctors strike between 13 and 15 March 2023.

NHS England publish data on their website on the impact of industrial action. This sets out the number of staff absent because of industrial action, and the number of procedures and appointments rescheduled. The data is available at the following link:

https://www.england.nhs.uk/publication/preparedness-for-potential-industrial-action-in-the-nhs/

30th Sep 2020
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what the infection fatality rate is (a) overall, (b) for women, (c) for men, for covid-19 cases; and what the infection fatality rate is by age group.

Public Health England does not publish data on the infection fatality rate or the case fatality rate of COVID-19.

Minister of State (Department for Work and Pensions)
28th Apr 2020
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will ensure that children’s hospices are able to procure personal protective equipment through push deliveries from the NHS Supply Chain.

We published a personal protective equipment (PPE) plan on 10 April, setting out clear guidance on who needs PPE and in what circumstances they need to use it, how sufficient supplies will be secured and distributed to the front line.

The Government recognises the vital services that hospices provide across the United Kingdom. Distribution routes for PPE are constantly reviewed to strengthen and expand capacity, and efforts are currently being undertaken to boost the service to hospices.

We have provided local resilience forums with supplies of PPE to help them respond to urgent local spikes in need across front-line services, including hospices.

The National Supply Disruption Response exists as an emergency escalation route who handle queries including the supply of PPE as a last resort.

28th Apr 2020
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will publish guidance on palliative care for children and young people in community and hospice settings during the covid-19 outbreak.

Working with key stakeholders, NHS England and NHS Improvement have developed a standard operating procedure (SOP), for palliative care for children and young people in community and hospice settings during the COVID-19 pandemic, which is due to be published shortly.

The SOP is aimed at supporting staff who are providing care or supporting children and young people, and their families, who have palliative and/or end of life care needs in the community, including home and hospice care. Palliative care will include some children and young people who have life-limiting long-term conditions and complex health needs. It encourages all providers of children’s palliative care (statutory and voluntary sector) to work collaboratively and flexibly across health settings to support this group of children and young people and keep them safe during the pandemic.

Helen Whately
Minister of State (Department of Health and Social Care)
11th Mar 2020
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to the consultation on mandatory fortification of flour with folic acid which closed in September 2019, what estimate his Department has made of the number windmills using traditional milling processes which prevent accurate dosing of flour with additives.

The recent consultation on the proposed mandatory fortification of flour with folic acid to help reduce neural tube defects in foetuses did specifically ask people to highlight any potential impact of this policy on small and medium businesses. People who responded to the consultation did not have to identify themselves or any sector they may be representing. However, of those who did, 50 identified themselves as working in the heritage/artisan milling sector. Officials from the Department have met with representatives from the The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) Mills Section and the Traditional Cornmillers Guild and visited wind and watermills to understand at first hand the practicalities around fortification in those premises. We have only the publicly available data on the number of traditional mills; noting that not all buildings manufacture flour as some are museums. Ministers are currently considering the consultation response analysis and further information will be provided in due course.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will consider the potential merits of exempting traditional heritage windmills from proposed mandatory fortification of flour with folic acid.

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, how many people are enrolled in a public sector pension scheme but do not yet receive a pension under that scheme; and if he will publish a breakdown of those figures by (a) employer and (b) age.

Membership data as of the last quadrennial valuation reports for each scheme is available on gov.uk. The Treasury does not hold age data or a breakdown by individual employer for each public sector pension scheme centrally and does not plan to collate or publish such data.

14th Mar 2023
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what estimate he has made of the cost to the public purse of public sector pensions in each of the next 20 years.

The Office for Budget Responsibility’s Fiscal Risks and Sustainability Report forecasts expenditure on unfunded public service pensions is expected to fall from around 2% of GDP in 2021/22 to 1.8% of GDP in 2041/42.

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what estimate he has made of the number and proportion of asylum claims in which the applicant cites Christian belief as a reason for asylum (a) on arrival and (b) after arriving in the UK in each of the last 10 years; and what assessment he has made of trends in number and proportion of asylum claims in which the applicant cites Christian belief as a reason for asylum (i) on arrival and (ii) after arriving in the UK over that period.

Information regarding an individual’s reasons for claiming asylum is not recorded in a reportable format. We are reviewing whether we could collect and publish data in this area.

13th Mar 2023
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in relation to modern slavery and the National Referral Mechanism (NRM), (a) how many people were referred to the NRM during 2022; (b) how many cases received a positive reasonable grounds decision during 2022; (c) how many cases received a negative reasonable grounds decision during 2022; (d) how many cases are currently waiting for a reasonable grounds decision; and (e) what recent estimate the Government has made of the (i) number and (ii) proportion of non UK citizens referred to the NRM who may have been referred to that mechanism with the intention of circumventing immigration requirements.

The Home Office publishes quarterly and annual statistics regarding the National Referral Mechanism (NRM). The 2022 statistics can be found here;

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, how many UK Armed Forces personnel were categorised as NATO Category (a) 2 and (b) 3 on the basis they need dental care or treatment to achieve optimal dental fitness.

As at 1 March 2023 11,451 UK Armed Forces personnel were categorised as NATO Category 2, and 10,687 UK Armed Forces personnel were categorised as NATO Category 3.

For UK Defence Dentistry the NATO Dental Fitness Category is interpreted as follows:

NATO Dental Fitness Category 2

Service Personnel in date for Periodic Dental Inspection who require active interventive or operative dental treatment and whose existing dental condition, in the opinion of the clinician, is unlikely to result in a dental emergency within their defined recall period..

NATO Dental Fitness Category 3

Service personnel in date for Periodic Dental Inspection who require active interventive or operative dental treatment and whose dental condition is, in the opinion of the clinician, likely to cause a dental emergency within 12 months. It also includes those previously categorised as NATO Dental Fitness Category 2 who have gone beyond their recall date.

The Joint Medical Employment Standard (JMES) awarded by medical staff in order to inform commanders and career managers of the deployability and employability of Service personnel, will be reviewed if the Service person’s oral health status adversely affects their employability or overall health if deployed, or their oral care needs would be difficult to deliver in the deployed environment.

The Service person will be graded according to the frequency of the symptoms, requirement for medication and medical support, and degree of functional impairment.


Andrew Murrison
Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Ministry of Defence)
14th Mar 2023
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, how many military personnel are waiting for dental treatment as of 14 March 2023.

As at 1 March 2023 (latest data available) 22,138 UK Armed Forces personnel were categorised as NATO Category 2 or 3; meaning that they require either preventative or interventive treatment to achieve optimal dental fitness.

NATO Category 2 patients are deployable as they only require minor interventive treatment or treatment aimed at preventing disease. NATO Category 3 patients require treatment for conditions which are likely to result in issues within a year if left untreated. These are the priority for treatment.
