We believe that encouraging patients to use the NHS sensibly and responsibly is the right approach and we are supportive of local schemes to highlight the number of missed appointments to their patients. However, it is ultimately a matter for the local NHS and primary care providers to decide how best to raise awareness and implement measures to reduce missed appointments.</p><p> </p><p>Primary care providers are encouraged to offer patients different ways to book appointments, send appointment reminders by text messages, and make it quick for patients to cancel or re-arrange appointments e.g. through the use of an online service.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There is information readily available on chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) for both healthcare professionals and the general public via NHS Choices website. Further information is also provided in the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) clinical guidance which can be found via their website. This information is provided in formats suitable for both professionals and the public. Both the NHS Choices and NICE guidance can be found at the following links:</p><p><a href="http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/chronic-fatigue-syndrome-cfs/" target="_blank">www.nhs.uk/conditions/chronic-fatigue-syndrome-cfs/</a></p><p><a href="http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/cg53" target="_blank">www.nice.org.uk/guidance/cg53</a></p><p>On 20 September 2017, NICE announced plans to undertake a full review of the guidance to ensure it reflects the latest available evidence.</p><p>Education and training is also an important feature in building the awareness of clinical professionals. In terms of education and training, the General Medical Council sets out the knowledge, skills and behaviours that new United Kingdom medical graduates must be able to demonstrate and Royal Medical Colleges, such as the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) set the standards for postgraduate medical education in general practice. General practice is where most patients with CFS/ME are likely to be managed, and the condition is identified as a key area of clinical knowledge in the RCGP Applied Knowledge Test (AKT) content guide. The AKT is a summative assessment of the knowledge base that underpins general practice in the United Kingdom within the context of the National Health Service and is a key part of general practitioner’s qualifying exams.</p><p>Once fully qualified, clinicians are responsible for ensuring their own clinical knowledge remains up-to-date and for identifying learning needs as part of their continuing professional development. This activity should include taking account of new research and developments in guidance, such as that produced by NICE.</p>

The purpose of the Pharmacy Integration Fund (PhIF) is to try out and evaluate new ways of integrating pharmacists and community pharmacy into the wider health care system. National commissioning of NHS pharmaceutical services is arranged through the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework. In December 2017, under the PhIF, NHS England commenced a pilot urgent minor illness care pathway of direct referral from NHS 111 to community pharmacy. The outcome of this pilot will inform future commissioning decisions.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The potential financial impacts of e-cigarettes on the public purse are not yet fully understood. The evidence base is still evolving on these products, largely because vaping is still relatively new and the health effects may be very long term. Significant savings to the public purse are likely to arise only if smokers switch completely from smoked tobacco. The Government’s Tobacco Control Plan, published in July 2017, estimates that the National Health Service currently spends £2.5 billion on treating smoking-related diseases and Public Health England assess e-cigarettes to be at least 95% less harmful than smoked tobacco. Reduced harm may not translate exactly into proportional costs savings, but superficially this implies that vaping, as an alternative to smoking, may contribute to significant savings.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department has been clear that for smokers, quitting smoking completely is the best way to improve health. E-cigarettes are not risk free. However, the evidence is increasingly clear that e-cigarettes are significantly less harmful to health than cigarettes and can help smokers to quit, particularly when combined with support from stop smoking services.</p><p> </p><p>The Government committed Public Health England (PHE), through the Tobacco Control Plan, published in 2017, to include messages about the relative safety of e-cigarettes in their quit smoking campaigns. PHE’s 2017 Stoptober campaign included e-cigarettes among the array of tools that smokers can use to help them quit and, in their New Year smoking health harms campaign, PHE reprised these messages. It is through this consistent messaging that the Government hopes to reverse the harmful, mistaken – and increasingly widespread – belief that vaping is no safer than smoking.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are tackling general practitioner (GP) workload by investing in the Releasing Time to Care Programme and expanding the skill mix in general practice. The Releasing Time for Care Programme is designed to help practices implement change to release time more quickly and sustainably. As of October 2017 a series of workshops have reached around 4,800 participants, and survey responses suggest that attending the workshop has had an immediate and substantial effect on practices’ optimism.</p><p> </p><p>We are widening the skills mix by investing in the wider general practice workforce in extra mental health therapists, clinical pharmacists, general practice nurse development, training of current reception and clerical staff, training of physician associates, pilots of new medical assistant roles, and practice manager development nationwide to free up valuable GP time.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We do not hold data on the number of general practitioner (GP) trainees who started training in York and Yorkshire and the Humber. The number of GP registrars working in general practice in the Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group and NHS England North (Yorkshire and the Humber) in September 2017 is presented in the following table. This may not represent all trainee GPs in these regions as they do not spend the entirety of their training as a GP registrar working in general practice. The remaining time is spent training in hospitals.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>GP Registrars (Full Time Equivalent (FTE))</p></td><td><p>GP Registrars (Headcount)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>NHS Vale of York CCG</p></td><td><p>12</p></td><td><p>13</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>NHS England North (Yorkshire and Humber)</p></td><td><p>244</p></td><td><p>277</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>Notes:</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>1. Figures contain estimates for the 5.4% of practices that did not provide fully valid GP data.</p><p> </p><p>2. FTE refers to the proportion of full time contracted hours that the post holder is contracted to work. 1 would indicate they work a full set of hours, 0.5 that they worked half time.</p><p> </p><p>3. Figures shown do not include GPs working in Prisons, Army Bases, Educational Establishments, Specialist Care Centres including Drug Rehabilitation Centres and Walk-In Centres.</p><p> </p><p>Data as at 30 September</p><p> </p><p>Source: NHS Digital</p>

star this property answer text <p>The York general practitioner (GP) specialty training scheme is well established, respected, evaluated and popular with those choosing to train to become GPs. It attracted higher than regional-average fill rates in the last round of GP recruitment. The scheme has three experienced training programme directors (TPD) that are responsible for the support and delivery of teaching and training for trainees at weekly group sessions, as well as the planning and delivery of training rotations in the area, and support for local GP trainers. The ratio of TPD sessions to trainees is higher than the average for Yorkshire and the Humber.</p><p> </p><p>The training scheme usually operates from postgraduate education centre at York District Hospital. There have been recent renovations to this facility and there is a current period of adaptation and re-organisation, which Health Education England is supporting locally, to make the facilities ideal for all parties.</p><p> </p><p>GP trainers are responsible for the day-to-day supervision of trainee GPs who are on placements in practices. In the year August 2016 to July 2017 there were 34 headcount GP trainers linked to the York GP Speciality Training Programme. Data held prior to this period is not comparable.</p>
