star this property answer text <p>An increase in mumps activity was observed in England in the first quarter (Q1) of 2019 with 795 laboratory confirmed mumps infections. Cases were reported in all regions of England, predominantly in young adults aged 15 to 34 years (703/795, 88%). Almost half (352/795, 44%) of the cases in Q1 were in unvaccinated individuals. Whilst this is triple the total number of infections (247 cases) confirmed in England in Q1 of 2018, increases in mumps cases have been observed in previous years. In Q1 of 2013, a total of 980 cases were confirmed.</p><p>Further information is available to view at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/804024/hpr1819_mmr2.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/804024/hpr1819_mmr2.pdf</a></p><p>Although mumps can occur in fully vaccinated individuals, due to secondary vaccine failure, it is less likely to lead to complications requiring hospitalisation. While the mumps component of the Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine is highly effective at protecting young children, immunity can wane over time. Therefore, older teenagers and adults who received two doses of MMR in childhood can still get mumps although this is generally mild compared to those who are unvaccinated.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department is helping to promote flexible working for doctors and nurses through the interim NHS People Plan which outlines the new offer for staff and sets out what support will be offered to National Health Service staff including flexible working. The interim NHS People Plan will be developed over the summer with publication of the final version expected after the spending review later this year.</p><p>The Government also made a manifesto commitment to “…strengthen the entitlement for NHS employees to flexible working to help those with caring responsibilities for young children or older relatives.” This includes the improvement in the use of technology to help trusts with e-rostering and e-job planning to optimise the use of their permanent and temporary workforces.</p><p>The Junior Doctor’s contract agreement provides for £1,000 less than full time trainee allowance to recognise additional costs such trainees face.</p><p>NHS Improvement continues to promote flexible working for staff including doctors and nurses through its NHS Staff Retention Collaborative. This initiative initially focussed on nurses and clinicians working in mental health but has now been extended to all staff groups<sup>1</sup>.</p><p>Flexible working for all staff including doctors and nurses is promoted through the NHS Constitution which states that staff have the right “to fair treatment regarding leave, rights and flexible working” and also states that “employers…must consider flexible working requests by employees with at least 26 weeks continuous service”.<sup>2</sup></p><p>The Department is currently working closely with NHS Improvement to roll out smarter staff banks. As well as reducing reliance on expensive recruitment agencies, staff banks provide a further opportunity for flexible working in the NHS. Effective staff banks can give staff the freedom to manage their own time, using simple, user-friendly technologies to pick up shifts when they want them, get paid quickly, and have control over their pension contributions. Furthermore, where several banks are joined together into collaborative banks, trusts can dramatically increase the size of the flexible workforce they can reach and increase the opportunities for those working flexibly to choose the shifts that fit in with their lives.</p><p>Notes:</p><p><sup>1</sup> <a href="https://improvement.nhs.uk/resources/improving-staff-retention/" target="_blank">https://improvement.nhs.uk/resources/improving-staff-retention/</a></p><p><sup>2 </sup><a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/770675/The_Handbook_to_the_NHS_Constitution_-_2019.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/770675/The_Handbook_to_the_NHS_Constitution_-_2019.pdf</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>Improving the mental health of our National Health Service staff including doctors is a top priority. Last year, NHS England announced the expansion of the Practitioner Health Programme, a free and confidential NHS service to treat doctors’ mental health or addiction problems, in particular where these might affect their work.</p><p>The Department also continues to discuss doctors’ contractual terms and conditions of service with the British Medical Association and employers to ensure they are up to date, fit for purpose helping protect their mental health and wellbeing through negotiated improvements.</p><p>As set out in the interim NHS People Plan, like all NHS staff, doctors should benefit from NHS work over the summer to “develop a new offer with staff setting out explicitly the support they can expect from the NHS as a modern employer” including ensuring everyone feels they have voice, control and influence, which covers staff mental health and wellbeing. This will be published after the Spending Review and could include implementation of recommendations from Health Education England’s NHS Staff and Learner Mental Wellbeing Programme report such as introducing Well Being Guardians in NHS trusts, personal wellbeing supervisors for learners including doctors in training, NHS organisations independently examining the death by suicide of any member of NHS staff or learner working in the NHS and “safe spaces” accessible to all for reflection, learning and breaks.</p><p>The new offer will build on the progress being made in implementing the NHS staff health and wellbeing framework which provides organisations with diagnostic and intervention options to help them provide the mental health services their staff need such as counselling and talking therapies. The Framework and NHS Improvement’s s staff health and wellbeing collaborative of 73 trusts embed the mental health standards set out in ‘Thriving at Work – a review of mental health and employers’ commissioned by the Government. Implementing ‘Thriving at Work’ is a requirement under the NHS Standard contract.</p><p>NHS England’s 2017/19 Commissioning for Quality and Innovation (CQUIN) Incentive scheme has been encouraging trusts to improve the services they provide to help staff mental health with payments for improvement in the percentage of staff answering “no” to the NHS Staff Survey question “During the last 12 months have you felt unwell as a result of work related stress?”</p>
