star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the need to be able to recruit effectively from abroad and the Immigration White Paper ‘The UK’s future skills-based immigration system’, published in December 2018, sets out the foundation for a single immigration system, where it is workers’ skills that matter, not where they come from.</p><p>This system will streamline the high-skilled visa route, by removing the Resident Labour Market Test and the Tier 2 Visa Cap. It will also include a new temporary immigration route for workers of all skill levels which will allow our social care sector to recruit care workers from abroad as we transition into the new system. The Home Office is undertaking a programme of engagement to discuss the proposed measures with colleagues across government and industry, to develop a future immigration system that works for the whole of the United Kingdom.</p><p>We also recognise the need to boost our domestic workforce as well. The NHS Long Term Plan sets out a vital strategic framework to ensure that, over the next ten years, the National Health Service will have the staff it needs so that nurses and doctors are working in a supportive culture that allows them to provide the expert compassionate care they are committed to providing.</p><p>Alongside this, the upcoming Social Care Green Paper will set out the Department’s proposals for reform of the sector to put it on a more sustainable future footing. This will include a vision for its workforce and proposals to boost recruitment and retention in the longer term.</p>

We have recently undertaken a review of our implementation plan to reflect on what has been achieved so far and what more we need to do to achieve our goals by 2020. As a result of that we will be reviewing the role of GPs and whether they remain the staff group best placed to lead on care coordination in all cases.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, the NHS Long Term Plan commits to better support for people with dementia in the community and ongoing close work with the voluntary sector, for example supporting Alzheimer’s Society’s dementia connect programme.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Commission on Human Medicines’ Expert Working Group (EWG) review into Hormone Pregnancy Tests (HPTs) was comprehensive, scientifically robust and independent. Based on the totality of the data, the review concluded the available scientific evidence did not support a causal association between the use of HPTs during early pregnancy and birth defects or miscarriage. All evidence considered by the EWG has been published online.</p><p> </p><p>The EWG did not undertake a meta-analysis as part of the review. The EWG examined a large number of epidemiological studies, many of which were conducted under different designs. The EWG considered whether meta-analysis was possible and ultimately concluded that because the studies were so different such an analysis would not be informative. Meta-analysis was also not considered appropriate because the studies were not sufficiently robust and suffered from extensive limitations.</p><p> </p><p>The EWG comprised independent experts from a wide range of relevant specialisms and its report was further scrutinised by the Commission on Human Medicines, the Government’s independent scientific advisory body on the safety of medicines. There are no plans for further peer review of the report. The Government is committed to reviewing any important new evidence that arises.</p>
