star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the need to be able to recruit effectively from abroad and the Immigration White Paper, <em>The UK’s future skills-based immigration system</em>, 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. This system will streamline the high-skilled visa route, by removing the Resident Labour Market Test and the Tier 2 Visa Cap. 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>The Government wants to support the National Health Service in expanding international recruitment more widely, as this clearly has a role to play to meeting staffing shortages, especially in the short term. Recruitment of doctors and nurses is the responsibility of individual NHS organisations, a number of which do actively recruit from overseas, including from countries in the European Union. However, 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 10 years, the NHS 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. Details of this will be explored more fully in the forthcoming Interim NHS People Plan.</p><p>The Government has taken steps to ensure that EU citizens can continue to come and work in the NHS once we have left the EU. In March 2019, we put in place legislation that ensures the continued recognition of qualifications from EU countries by all professional regulators covering the health and social care sectors. This means that EU citizens will continue to be able to come and practice in the UK once we have left the EU, even if we leave without a deal.</p>

Latest available data show general dental practitioners issued 2,912,579 prescriptions for all antimicrobials including antibiotics during April 2017 to March 2018. There were 715,545 prescriptions between January and March 2018. The Dental Prescribing Dashboard will be refreshed in summer 2019.</p><p>Analysis is based on items prescribed by NHS dentists, but some patients may attend a general medical practice with a dental infection and receive a prescription from their general practitioner (GP). These prescriptions are not included, as we cannot determine the reason why a GP prescribed antibiotics.</p><p>The <em>English Surveillance Programme for Antimicrobial Utilisation and Resistance (ESPAUR) Report 2018</em> provides information on NHS dental prescribing in dental practices and consultations. The ESPAUR report for 2019 scheduled for publication later this year will publish data for the 2018 calendar year. The ESPAUR 2018 report is attached.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The 2018 English surveillance programme for antimicrobial utilisation and resistance report contains information on carbapenem-resistant Escherichia coli (E. coli) causing bloodstream infections in England. In 2017 there were 18 cases. The number of people with other infections and carriage of E. coli resistant to carbapenems is harder to ascertain as surveillance is not as uniform.</p><p>Public Health England (PHE) publishes guidance on the prevention and control of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (including E. coli); guidance is available for both acute and non-acute settings, copies of the <em>Toolkit for managing carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae in non-acute and community settings</em> and <em>Acute trust toolkit for the early detection, management and control of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae</em> are attached. PHE is supporting actions outlined in the United Kingdom’s Tackling Antimicrobial Resistance National Action Plan that aim to prevent and control the transmission of carbapenem-resistant bacteria, which includes reducing the number of specific drug-resistant infections in people by 10% by 2025; reducing UK antimicrobial use in humans by 15% by 2024; and adding carbapenem-resistant Gram-negative infections to the list of notifiable diseases in existing laboratory reporting systems.</p>
