Government has no data on children’s health and care

Last Wednesday a written question was raised by Tim Loughton, the MP for East Worthing and Shoreham and the question was answered by Neil O’Brien who is a Health and Social Care Minister. The question was very sensible and given the background by Tim it is understandable why he asked the question. However the answer is very disturbing and there is clearly a requirement for the theme to be responded by the Government now, particularly given that this image suggested that a Health and Care Act took place last year! Here are the question and answer.

Tim Loughton: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what assessment the Government has made of the adequacy of the availability of data on children’s health and care needs.

Neil O’Brien: No specific assessment has been made.
