Valerie raises a Code of Practice in the NHS

At Business Questions on 11 September 2014, Valerie raised possibility of a Code of Practice in the NHS.

Speaking to the Leader of the House of Commons Rt Hon William Hague MP, Valerie asked:

“May we have an urgent statement on a code of practice in the NHS that makes the interests of children paramount and that balances the views of parents and clinicians so that public money is not wasted in court and police costs?”

Mr. Hague replied:

“Clearly, the House is going into recess and we have no statement planned today, so there will not be an urgent statement on that, but the hon. Lady raises an important issue and I will draw it to the attention of my colleagues at the Department of Health”
