star this property answer text <p>In line with the implementation plan set out in the Government response to the National Data Guardian’s Review of Data Security, Consent and Opt-Outs, <em>Your Data: Better Security, Better Choice, Better Care</em>, general practitioner (GP) practices will be required to apply national data opt-outs, expressed to NHS Digital, by March 2020. By this date national data opt-outs must be applied by all health and care organisations in line with the national data opt-out policy when confidential patient information is being shared for purposes beyond the patient’s individual care (also referred to as secondary uses). NHS Digital has commissioned the GP system suppliers to develop solutions for their GP systems which will enable GP practices to uphold national data opt-outs. We will publish further details as these solutions become available.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is concerned about the impact of long term use of benzodiazepines by National Health Service patients and other dependence forming medicines prescribed in primary care. The National Centre for Social Research recently published <em>Prescribing Patterns in Dependence Forming Medicines, </em>which reviewed data for 50,000 NHS patients in England and looked at those who had been prescribed at least one of four types of potentially addictive drugs - known as Dependence Forming Medicines - between 2000 and 2015. The data shows that potentially dependence forming medicines are widely prescribed in primary care.</p><p> </p><p>The report highlights that a balance needs to be struck between avoiding prescribing that might lead to dependence or other harms and ensuring proper access to medicines to relieve suffering and treat disorders with. The report notes that clinical guidance recommending more cautious and time limited prescribing of benzodiazepines may well have been effective in changing practice, with reductions in the extent and length of benzodiazepine prescribing. It also suggests close and ongoing monitoring of opioid prescribing is needed. This independent research was commissioned and funded by the National Institute for Health Research Policy Research Programme. A copy of the report is attached.</p><p> </p><p>In the light of this research, the Department has commissioned Public Health England to undertake an evidence review to better understand the scope of the problem of prescribed drug dependence.</p><p>The review will bring together the best available evidence on prevalence and prescribing; the nature and likely causes of dependence or withdrawal among some people who continue to take these medicines; and effective prevention and treatment responses for each indication.</p><p>The recently-updated National Clinical Guidelines for Drug Misuse and Dependence, <em>Drug misuse and dependence: UK guidelines on clinical management</em>, have specific guidance about pharmacological management of dependence on benzodiazepines and z-drugs, including prescribing regimens, detoxification, adjunctive therapies and monitoring. The guidelines are attached.</p><p>There is relevant National Institute for Health and Care Excellence guidance available for primary care prescribers for example on benzodiazepine and z-drug withdrawal.</p><p> </p>

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>The British Pregnancy Advisory Service’s report, <em>Medically Complex Women and Abortion Care</em>, found that women in the United Kingdom with medical conditions including epilepsy, heart problems, and cancer can struggle to obtain abortion care. The Department recognises that some women with complex medical needs face challenges in accessing timely abortion care and is working with NHS England to ensure there are sufficient facilities in the National Health Service to provide abortions for women who have medical conditions and cannot be treated in standalone abortion clinics.</p><p>Currently clinical commissioning groups are responsible for commissioning NHS-funded termination of pregnancy services in England. Ministers have agreed that in 2018/19 NHS England will become the responsible commissioner for a small number of terminations, estimated at between 2,500 and 3,000, where the woman has significant comorbidities, which require critical care and/or medical support that would only be available in co-located NHS facilities. A national service specification will be developed to formally commission this service.</p><p>The Department has not made an estimate of the number of women who are currently unable to access appropriate specialist care.</p>

A joint clinical working group comprised of clinical representatives reviewed the consultation findings and made evidence-based recommendations for consideration by the NHS England Board. Liothyronine attracted a significant number of responses and following detailed review, significant amendments to the original proposals were made before being published in the finalised guidance. NHS England’s recommendations are that National Health Service consultant endocrinologists may still initiate and recommend liothyronine for new patients, following audited individual trial periods of use, as recommended by the British Thyroid Association.</p><p> </p> more like this

In these circumstances, where levothyroxine has failed and in line with BTA guidance, endocrinologists providing NHS services may recommend liothyronine for individual patients after a carefully audited trial of at least three months’ duration of liothyronine.</p><p>NHS England’s recommendations to clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) take account of those of the BTA and are to:</p><p>- Advise CCGs that prescribers in primary care should not initiate liothyronine for any new patient;</p><p> </p><p>- Advise CCGs that individuals currently prescribed liothyronine should be reviewed by a consultant NHS endocrinologist with consideration given to switching to levothyroxine where clinically appropriate; and</p><p> </p><p>- Advise CCGs that a local decision, involving the Area Prescribing Committee (or equivalent) informed by national guidance (e.g. from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence or the Regional Medicines Optimisation Committee), should be made regarding arrangements for on-going prescribing of liothyronine. This should be for individuals who, in exceptional circumstances, have an on-going need for liothyronine as confirmed by a consultant National Health Service endocrinologist.</p><p>A number of CCGs had already created local policies on the prescribing of liothryronine before the national consultation started in July 2017.</p>
