star this property answer text <p>The decision of the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) to fine Pfizer and Flynn Pharma is currently under appeal. As with other fine income, fines levied by the CMA for breaches of competition law are returned to the Consolidated Fund. Receipts from this fine will therefore help fund the £10 billion increase in National Health Service funding set out at the Spending Review. A separate process is available for the Secretary of State for Health to recover damages suffered as a result of this case through the courts. This money would flow back to the NHS for the benefit of patients, based on clinical priorities.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department’s consultation ‘Infected Blood – Consultation on Special Category Mechanism and financial and other support in England’ set out plans for further support measures for all those affected by the infected blood tragedy. As it set out in the Consultation document, we are proposing to remove a fixed uplift in annual payments from 2018/19 onward for all eligible recipients, in order to ensure that the scheme, overall, remains within the allocated budget while introducing the Special Category Mechanism, which will benefit a significant proportion of stage 1 beneficiaries, offering them annual payments equivalent to those received by beneficiaries with hepatitis C stage 2 disease or those infected with HIV.</p><p> </p><p>We believe this is a fair and reasonable distribution of the available funding, and necessary in order to preserve levels of support provided to beneficiaries including through the discretionary fund, which we know is valued by beneficiaries and their families.</p><p> </p><p>Further detail on the evidential basis for this specific proposal and others is available in the Impact Assessment that accompanied the Consultation.</p>

However, Public Health England produces an annual report of hepatitis in England which sets out estimates of diagnosed and undiagnosed hepatitis C and treatment activity. NHS England is working with Public Health England and National Health Service trusts leading Hepatitis C Operational Delivery Networks to develop a national registry of all patients with diagnosed hepatitis C. It is anticipated that following roll out of a national registry, improved data on patients with hepatitis C engaged with specialist services but not yet initiated on treatment will be available by the summer.</p> more like this
