It is the responsibility of clinical commissioning groups to make decisions on the commissioning and funding of any health care treatments for National Health Service patients, such as acupuncture, taking account of issues to do with safety, clinical and cost-effectiveness and the availability of suitably qualified or regulated practitioners.</p> more like this

A range of work is being undertaken by PHE to understand the reasons for the decline in uptake and to support the NHS and local authorities (LAs) to address them. They include access to timely and useful data for benchmarking, evidence on best practices to increase uptake among women who wish to be screened, using governance levers to advice NHS and LAs and working in partnership with commissioners, providers and charities.</p>

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>

NHS England also has arrangements in place to help patients who cannot find a local dentist that is accepting new patients.</p><p> </p><p>The proportion of children seeing a dentist at least once a year is already high with 6.8 million children having seen a dentist in the 12 months ending 31 December 2017. This is 110,767 more children than saw a dentist in the 12 month period ending 31 December 2016.</p><p> </p><p>Survey data suggests 75% of children are now decay free at five years old. But there is further to go to ensure all children benefit from this improvement. The proposed new contract being tested includes a clinical pathway which supports dentists to provide the most appropriate preventative care as well as active treatment. Alongside this NHS England is targeting children in areas of particularly high need.</p><p> </p><p>The ‘Starting Well’ programme has been launched in 13 high needs areas and aims to reach children not currently being seen regularly by a dentist. Starting Well core, a complementary programme NHS England is developing, will take the principles of approach and make it available as a broader model to any commissioner based on local assessment of need and priorities. This is expected to be available later in 2018.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>
