  2. 'Why we should protect war memorials'

    The topic chosen for the Short Debate by Paul Davies (Preseli Pembrokeshire) is "Remembrance and respect: why we should protect war memorials in Wales".

    He says the best way of honouring our veterans is to place a statutory duty on local authorities to protect the sites.

  3. 'Values the NHS workforce and our social partnership working arrangements'

    The Welsh Government amendment is again to delete the entire Plaid Cymru proposal and replace with a proposal that the assembly:

    1. Values the NHS workforce and our social partnership working arrangements in Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB), and in all health boards across Wales.

    2. Notes that BCUHB continues to engage with nursing staff and their trades unions on changes to nursing rotas.

  4. 'Do not attempt to circumvent the Nurse Staffing Levels (Wales) Act 2016'

    The Brexit Party's Mandy Jones calls on the Welsh Government "to ensure that Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board and other health boards across Wales do not attempt to circumvent the Nurse Staffing Levels (Wales) Act 2016 by reclassifying working patterns".

  5. Working days lost due to stress and mental health related issues

    Conservative Mark Isherwood says it is a matter of regret "that the number of working days lost due to stress and mental health related issues within the health board has increased by 20 per cent since 2014",

  6. 'Victory for the hard-working nurses of Betsi Cadwaladr'

    The topic of the second Plaid Cymru debate is Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board's new rotas.

    This afternoon the board shelved its controversial plans.

    Llyr Gruffydd says it is a victory for the hard-working nurses of Betsi Cadwaladr.

    Plaid Cymru's proposal, before the u-turn by the health board, was that the assembly:

    1. Opposes Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board’s decision to introduce new rotas that will extend shifts for nursing staff from January 2020.

    2. Believes this is a damaging and retrograde step - particularly at a time when more than one in ten nursing posts in the health board is vacant.

    3. Notes that BCUHB has been in special measures for the past four years and is therefore under the direct control of the Minister for Health and Social Services.

    4. Calls on the Welsh Government to overturn the decision and protect nurses’ working conditions.

  7. 'Positive action underway through the Primary Care Model for Wales'

    The Welsh Government amendment moved by the health minister is to delete the entire Plaid Cymru motion and replace with a proposal that the assembly:

    1. Notes the positive action underway through the Primary Care Model for Wales to improve people’s access, day and night, to the right professional and service for their particular needs.

    2. Notes the marked improvement in the recruitment of doctors to the GP speciality training programme this year.

  8. 'Ongoing concerns of the British Medical Association Cymru'

    Conservative Angela Burns draws attention to the "ongoing concerns of the British Medical Association Cymru regarding the future sustainability of primary care services and the publication of the latest Welsh GP practice heat Map", and calls on the Welsh Government to "undertake a root and branch review of workforce planning within the Welsh NHS".

  10. 'Over 119,000 patients in Wales are covered by GP practices at risk'

    The Brexit Party's Caroline Jones says it is a matter of regret that "over 119,000 patients in Wales are covered by GP practices at risk" and calls upon the Welsh Government to "ensure that primary care is adequately funded by receiving at least 10 per cent of the overall NHS budget".

  11. 'Concern with the lack of access to basic medical services'

    Plaid Cymru has chosen to split its allocated hour for debate into two 30 minute debates.

    The first is on access to health services.

    Helen Mary Jones proposes that the assembly:

    1. Expresses concern with the lack of access to basic medical services, including GPs and NHS dentistry, in many parts of Wales.

    2. Calls for the recruitment and retention of additional medical staff to ensure appropriate access to health services across Wales.

  12. Plenary adjourned: 'whistle noise' in the Siambr

    Plenary has been adjourned for at least five minutes because of what the deputy presiding officer Ann Jones described as a "whistle noise" in the Siambr.

  13. Learning disability awareness training

    Julie Morgan, Deputy Minister for Health and Social Services, says the Welsh Government is "committed to putting in place comprehensive training for all NHS staff to ensure people with a learning disability receive high quality care appropriate to their needs", and that learning disability awareness training will be included as part of health boards' mandatory equality and diversity training.

  14. Foundation has helped train about 1,000 'champions' in the health service

    Paul Ridd's family have wanted action since an inquest ruled hospital neglect contributed to his death in 2009.

    Mandatory training for all health and social care workers in England was announced on Tuesday, following the death of Oliver McGowan, 18, who had autism.

    In 2013, a coroner ruled Mr Ridd, 53, from Baglan, near Port Talbot, died from natural causes contributed to by neglect at Swansea's Morriston Hospital.

    At the time, the local health board said its care quality had improved.

    Since 2014, the foundation set up in Mr Ridd's name has helped train about 1,000 "champions" in the health service to work as learning disability liaison nurses.

  15. 'Address the huge health inequalities facing people with autism and a learning disability'

    The next item is a debate on Petition P-05-854 - Make Learning Disability training mandatory for hospital staff.

    The chair of the Petitions Committee,Janet Finch-Saunders (Aberconwy), presents the 5,650-name petition by the Paul Ridd Foundation which said mandatory training in Wales could "address the huge health inequalities facing people with autism and a learning disability".

  16. Targets to reduce viral hepatitis incidence by 90%

    Health minister Vaughan Gething responds to the report on behalf of the Welsh Government.

    All the recommendations are accepted, or accepted in principle.

    The Welsh Government is signed up to the World Health Organization elimination agenda for hepatitis B and C, which includes targets to reduce viral hepatitis incidence by 90% and to reduce mortality due to hepatitis B and C by 65% by 2030.

    The written response by the Welsh Government to the report can be seen in full here.

  17. 12,000 Welsh residents either unaware they have hepatitis C or not engaging with services

    There are an estimated 12,000 Welsh residents who are either unaware they have hepatitis C or are not engaging with services for treatment.

  18. 'Comprehensive national elimination strategy for hepatitis C'

    Helen Mary Jones standing in for Committee Chair Dai Lloyd presents the report, which has four recommendations.

    Recommendation 1 is that the Welsh Government "produces a comprehensive national elimination strategy for hepatitis C, with clear ambitious targets, and workforce planning built in, and provides sustainable funding until elimination is achieved.

    "This must be done as a matter of urgency, given that the current plan will end this year, and funding for dedicated posts is only confirmed until 2021."
