Since the launch of the Long Term Plan, NHS England and the British Medical Association’s General Practitioners Committee have agreed a five-year GP (General Medical Services) contract framework from 2019/20. The new contract framework will be essential to deliver the ambitions set out in the NHS Long Term Plan through strong general practice services.</p>

In October 2014, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence recommended that Sativex is not offered for use on the NHS because it is not a cost-effective treatment.

Having somewhere stable to live acts as a platform for ex-offenders to be able to access the services and support needed to turn their back on crime for good. Published statistics for 2017/18 showing the accommodation status for all offenders can be found here:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/community-performance-quarterly-mi-update-to-march-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/community-performance-quarterly-mi-update-to-march-2018</a></p><p> </p><p>As part of the Government initiative to reduce and ultimately eliminate rough sleeping across England, we are investing up to £6.4 million over two years in a pilot scheme to help ex-offenders into accommodation from three prisons, namely Bristol, Pentonville and Leeds. The pilots will focus on male prisoners who have served shorter sentences, who have been identified as having a risk of homelessness. Following a mobilisation period, we expect services to commence in Summer of this year. This is a concrete step in our commitment to tackling rough sleeping.</p>
