star this property answer text <p>As outlined in both the NHS Long Term Plan and <em>Investment and evolution: a five-year framework for GP contract reform to implement The NHS Long Term Plan</em>, NHS England and NHS Improvement are currently undertaking a Review of vaccinations and immunisations. The Department would not wish to pre-empt the outcome of this Review. <em>Investment and evolution</em> sets out the purpose of the Review as being to:</p><p>- Ensure the system incentivises achievement of appropriate uptake rates for immunisations in line with national public health uptake rates;</p><p>- Reduce the administrative burden on general practices by simplifying the system if possible;</p><p>- Clarify what is expected on call/recall for immunisations delivered through the general practitioner (GP) contract;</p><p>- Address anomalies in the system that directly incentivise some vaccines but not others;</p><p>- Look at how we deal with outbreaks and catch-up programmes; and</p><p>- Consider whether we extend the list of chargeable travel vaccines.</p><p>Recommendations from the Review will be implemented through the 2020 and 2021 GP contracts.</p><p>A copy of <em>Investment and evolution: a five-year framework for GP contract reform to implement The NHS Long Term Plan</em> is attached.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department collaborated with the Royal College of Physicians on the National Review of Asthma Deaths and welcomed this report. Since its publication, significant improvements have been made in asthma care.</p><p> </p><p>Respiratory disease, including asthma, is a clinical priority within the NHS Long Term Plan, which aims to improve outcomes for patients through earlier diagnosis and increased access to treatments. The Respiratory Delivery Board will take forward respiratory proposals set out in the Plan by working with key partners.</p><p> </p><p>The National Health Service is supporting the national asthma audit programme which provides data on a range of indicators to show improvements and opportunities in asthma outcomes. NHS RightCare will be publishing an asthma toolkit later this year to support local commissioners and systems in delivering quality care. A best practice tariff for asthma, which aims to reduce variation in asthma care, is also in development.</p><p> </p><p>The current quality outcomes framework indicators for asthma are in consultation and changes for the annual review indicators may include data on asthma control; exacerbations; and written personalised action plans.</p><p> </p><p>As set out in the Long Term Plan, pharmacies in primary care networks will undertake medicine reviews for asthma patients. This will include education on inhaler use and uptake of dry powder and smart inhalers where clinically appropriate.</p><p> </p>
