star this property answer text <p>The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) provides independent expert advice on the United Kingdom’s immunisation programme. As an independent committee, it is well placed to ensure the latest and most appropriate evidence has been considered on potential changes to scheduling within the vaccine programme. It bases its advice on review of a wide range of scientific and other evidence, including from the published literature, commissioned studies such as independent analyses of vaccine effectiveness and cost effectiveness.</p><p>The JCVI advised that a two-dose schedule for the infant pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) Prevenar13 is appropriate for the UK. Its advice takes into account the public health aspects of any potential change to the vaccination schedule, such as the potential impact on cases of infectious disease. The JCVI consulted relevant stakeholders on its proposed advice, between January and April 2018, to ensure that its advice reflects all the evidence.</p><p>The JCVI’s advice on the infant pneumococcal programme was given full consideration, including the potential public health implications, before a decision was made to implement it. The UK frequently adopts innovative immunisation schedules and we regularly change the vaccine schedule following the advice of our independent expert committee, as we are doing in this case.</p><p>The decision is based on the excellent effectiveness of the vaccine and years of high uptake, which has helped to provide protection to the rest of the population and has successfully controlled many types of pneumococcal disease in this country. The evidence shows that two doses will sustain the excellent results we have already seen. We are confident that the world-class disease surveillance system we have in this country means our expert committee can closely monitor the impact of this change. This is set out in the JCVI’s minutes which are attached.</p>

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>

star this property answer text <p>The Dental Prescribing Dashboard developed by the NHS Business Services Authority and Public Health England, includes data for National Health Service local area teams. 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>

NHS organisations are legally required to make funding available for NICE recommended treatments, usually within three months of final guidance.</p><p>Wherever possible, NICE currently aims to publish recommendations on new drugs as soon as possible after licensing, with draft guidance on cancer drugs published in advance of licensing. The 2019 Voluntary Scheme for Branded Medicines Pricing and Access includes a commitment to faster NICE assessments of new medicines, with timelines for non-cancer drugs to match those for cancer drugs, subject to the evidence base for the product being sufficiently developed.</p>
