Departmental ministers have accepted the report’s conclusions and recommendations.</p><p> </p><p>Based on its extensive and thorough review, the Expert Working Group’s overall finding, endorsed by the Commission on Human Medicines, is that the available scientific evidence, taking all aspects into consideration, does not support a causal association between the use of Hormone Pregnancy Tests, such as Primodos, during early pregnancy and adverse outcomes of pregnancy, including miscarriage, stillbirth or congenital anomalies. In addition to the overall conclusion, the Expert Working Group has made a number of recommendations to safeguard future generations through further strengthening the systems in place for detecting, evaluating, managing and communicating safety concerns associated with the use of medicines in early pregnancy.</p><p> </p><p>All the available relevant evidence on a possible association has been extensively and thoroughly reviewed with the benefit of up-to-date knowledge by experts from the relevant specialisms. There are no proposals for a review of the report’s findings and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency will now take forward the recommendations.</p>

star this property answer text <p>As recommended by the UK National Screening Committee and the independent Cancer Taskforce, NHS England is introducing a new easier to use home testing kit for bowel cancer screening. FIT (Faecal Immunochemical Test for haemoglobin) will replace Faecal Occult Blood testing (FOBt) as the primary screening method from autumn 2018.</p><p> </p><p>In April 2018, NHS England published a handbook on how to implement timed bowel cancer diagnostic pathways. Timed pathways are a driver for faster diagnosis of cancer, ensuring that patients are given a diagnosis of cancer or the all clear within 28 days of presenting to their general practitioner with symptoms. Implementation of the timed pathway in full across England by March 2019 is identified as a key deliverable for all services in the NHS Planning Guidance 2018/19.</p><p> </p><p>The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) published diagnostics guidance on the role of testing for Lynch syndrome in people with colorectal cancer in February 2017. NHS England will be working with clinical commissioning group pathology service commissioners to determine whether they can jointly develop a policy proposition relating to genetic testing and the NICE guidance on testing for Lynch syndrome. NHS England will be considering this issue as part of the relevant work programmes during 2018/19.</p>

The last consultation on this issue was as part of Professor Sir Ian Gilmore’s review in 2008, which included consultation with patients, the public and general practitioners. Exemption from the prescription charge is available to those who are over 60, people with certain medical conditions, people under age 19 and in full time education and those on low incomes. Almost 90% of prescriptions are dispensed free of charge and those who need a number of prescriptions each month can buy a prepayment certificate, which can help reduce costs significantly.</p> more like this
