star this property answer text <p>The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has published eight pieces of interventional procedures guidance that make a number of different recommendations about the safety and efficacy of various procedures using mesh to treat stress urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse. They also emphasise the importance of informed consent and data collection, along with the requirement to report adverse events and the need for special training to undertake these procedures.</p><p>The most recent update was an update of its <em>Transvaginal mesh repair of anterior or posterior vaginal wall prolapse</em> interventional procedures guidance published on 15 December 2017. NICE recommends that this procedure should only be used in the context of research. The updated NICE recommendation does not constitute a “ban”, but specifies that research should include details of patient selection, long-term outcomes including complications, type of mesh used and method of fixation, and quality of life. A copy of the guidance is attached.</p><p>Additionally, NICE is extending its clinical guideline on the management of urinary incontinence in women to also include pelvic organ prolapse. The final guideline is expected to be published in 2019.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Employers are responsible for tackling bullying and harassment of staff. The Department is not complacent and Ministers are committed to meeting their manifesto commitment in tackling rates of bullying and harassment which are far too high. To that end, the Department is working with employers and unions in partnership to prioritise actions including the importance of line manager training, continuing to raise the profile of the issue and using Care Quality Commission inspections to assess progress, as we enter the second year of the national Social Partnership Forum’s <em>Tackling Bullying in the NHS: A collective call to action</em> published in December 2016. A copy of <em>Tackling Bullying in the NHS</em> is attached.</p><p>NHS England has provided the information and statistics which are attached due to the size of the data. The NHS Staff Survey was first undertaken in 2003. Questions about harassment, bullying and abuse have been included each year since then although it is not always possible to compare results from different years due to amendments to questions or survey method. We have, therefore, put together figures from the Staff Survey in different groups i.e. figures for 2012 – 2016 are comparable but not with other groupings; similarly, those for 2010/11, 2004-9 and 2003. The results from 2012 to 2016 are comparable.</p>
