star this property answer text <p>In the United Kingdom, there are currently arrangements in place for unlicensed medicines to be provided that are either manufactured in the UK or imported into the UK under a notification scheme. The national provisions are set out in the Human Medicines Regulations 2012 (Statutory Instrument 2012/1916). Sponsor companies may set up compassionate use programmes under the direction of a prescribing physician for specific patients.</p><p>Where an unmet need has been identified, the Early Access to Medicines Scheme run by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency also provides opportunity for supply of medicines awaiting a licence. These are to be prescribed under the responsibility of the treating physician, supported by a published scientific opinion that has been considered by the Commission on Human Medicines.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence has confirmed that minimally invasive hip replacement can be offered routinely as a treatment option for people with severe hip pain provided that doctors are sure that the patient understands what is involved and agrees to the treatment, and the results of the procedure are monitored. Their full guidance is here:</p><p><a href="https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ipg363/resources/minimally-invasive-total-hip-replacement-pdf-315958285" target="_blank">https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ipg363/resources/minimally-invasive-total-hip-replacement-pdf-315958285</a></p><p>It is for local clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) to decide what services they commission for the people they are responsible for – this will mean making clinical judgements about the effectiveness and value of treatments, and the best allocation of resources. CCGs do this based on the healthcare needs of their local populations and clinical evidence, to ensure they are providing the best possible, more sustainable care for their patients.</p><p> </p><p>Treatment decisions should always be made by doctors based on a patient’s individual clinical needs and informed by the NICE guidelines.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government takes the issues of addiction seriously and recognises the harms they can cause to an individual and those around them. Anyone concerned about an addiction should initially approach their general practitioner for advice. Local authorities are responsible for assessing the needs of their local population and commissioning services to meet these needs, including commissioning services to support people to recover from alcohol and drug dependence. We are supporting them in this through the provision of data, guidance and targeted support and funding via the Public Health Grant. The public health grant will increase in real terms in 2020/21. This means local authorities can continue to invest in prevention and essential frontline health services.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>No assessment has been made.</p><p> </p><p>In the NHS Long Term Plan, NHS England and NHS Improvement committed to deliver at least £4.5 billion of new investment in primary medical and community health services over the next five years. Part of this investment will support the recruitment of over 1,000 trained social prescribing link workers in place by the end of 2020/21, rising further by 2023/24, with the aim that over 900,000 people are able to be referred to social prescribing schemes by then.</p><p> </p><p>NHS England and NHS Improvement are working to get all social prescribing services, local commissioners and providers involved in measuring the impact of social prescribing locally. It has developed a Common Outcomes Framework (COF) for social prescribing which will enable social prescribing connector schemes across the country to capture core impact data. This will help to create a consistent evidence base; support the business case; and, build a national picture of the impact of social prescribing. The outcomes cover three key areas: the impact on the person; the impact on community groups; and the impact on the health and care system. NHS England and NHS Improvement will be working with stakeholders in a phased approach over the next two years to embed the use of the measures in the COF for the evaluation of social prescribing schemes.</p><p>The COF can be found via the following link:</p><p><a href="http://www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/social-prescribing-community-based-support-summary-guide.pdf" target="_blank">www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/social-prescribing-community-based-support-summary-guide.pdf</a> <br></p><p>On 23 October 2019, the Government launched a new independent organisation: the National Academy for Social Prescribing, which is set to receive £5 million in grant funding from April next year to support its work. Since its development was announced in November 2018, the Department and NHS England have been working with a broad range of partners both in and out of Government to build consensus on the form and focus of the organisation in order that it deliver the greatest impact. The Academy will be working to: build and promote the evidence base for social prescribing and sharing best practice; developing training and accreditation across sectors; exploring new models and sources of funding; and, helping to broker relationships between sectors.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
