star this property answer text <p>There are no post-registration requirements for a Registered Nurse to become a Parkinson’s nurse. Therefore, local integrated care systems will be responsible for ensuring they have the necessary numbers of Parkinson’s (and other specialist) nurses to meet the needs of their local population.</p><p>The NHS interim People Plan was published on 3 June 2019, it puts staff at the heart of National Health Service policy and delivery and recognises the current shortage of nurses as the most urgent challenge facing the health system.</p><p>It calls for action to be taken now to make the NHS the best place to work, by reforming the culture and leadership and ensuring all staff (including nurses) feel supported and valued, in an effort to increase workforce recruitment and retention.</p><p>The interim Plan proposes to increase the number of newly qualified NHS nurses, support and retain existing nurses, provide nurses with every opportunity to return to work, and bring in nurses from abroad. It commits to delivering 5,000 additional clinical placements for nursing students, 7,500 further Nursing Associates, increasing undergraduate supply and broadening routes into nursing.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p>

star this property answer text <p>As in preparation for 29 March and 12 April, our ‘no deal’ contingency plans for 31 October cover the National Health Service, social care and the independent sector and covers all medicines, medical devices and clinical consumables, supplies for clinical trials, vaccines and countermeasures, and organs and tissues for transplants.</p><p>Specialist nutritional products including prescription foods and synthetic protein supplements are an important part of patient care throughout the health and social care sector. In recognition of this we have made this a specific area of focus within our preparedness arrangements.</p><p>The Department has continued to work closely with the devolved administrations, industry trade bodies including the British Specialist Nutrition Association and suppliers, the NHS and other key stakeholders. Prior to 29 March, the Department analysed the supply chains of 12,300 medicines, close to half a million product lines of medical devices and clinical consumables, vaccines used in national and local programmes, and essential non-clinical goods on which the health and care system relies. These analyses and assessments have been updated where necessary and will continue to be refined while a ‘no deal’ European Union exit remains a possibility. This work has informed our plans.</p><p>We are asking suppliers to analyse their supply chains and to make alternative plans if they anticipate disruption, including rerouting to alternative ports or using airfreight where necessary. Our contingency measures aim to support industry-led measures and, where required, act as a ‘last resort’ to be used only when a supplier’s alternative arrangements encounter difficulties, to ensure uninterrupted supply.</p>
