star this property answer text <p>Blood glucose test strips are available on prescription for people with type 2 diabetes. However, it is for clinical commissioning groups to make decisions on the commissioning of health services that best meet the needs of their local population, taking into account local priorities and needs.</p><p>The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence has published guidance on the management of type 2 Diabetes in adults. This guideline states:</p><p>“1.6.13 Do not routinely offer self-monitoring of blood glucose levels for adults with type 2 diabetes unless:</p><ul><li>the person is on insulin or</li><li>there is evidence of hypoglycaemic episodes or</li><li>the person is on oral medication that may increase their risk of hypoglycaemia while driving or operating machinery or</li><li>the person is pregnant, or is planning to become pregnant. For more information, see the NICE guideline on diabetes in pregnancy (<a href="http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng3" target="_blank">http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng3</a> ). There have been no recent changes to prescribing recommendations, although NHS England have recently consulted on proposals to prescribe test strips only that fall below a certain cost threshold.”</li></ul><p>More information is available at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng28/chapter/1-Recommendations#blood-glucose-management-2" target="_blank">https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng28/chapter/1-Recommendations#blood-glucose-management-2</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>On 17 June 2019, my Rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care announced a root-and-branch review of all the food in hospitals, both food served, and food sold. This will look at the safety of food available to patients, visitors and staff, and provide healthier choices and improved nutrition.</p><p>National Health Service organisations have systems of due diligence in place to ensure that all their suppliers have appropriate registrations. The kitchens and other areas in the NHS used to store and process food are required to be registered and rated by the local authority and all staff involved in the preparation and handling of food are required to hold a level two food hygiene certificate. In addition to this, a food safety management system must be in place that outlines controls and processes for the safe delivery, handling and preparing of foods.</p><p>The Food Standards Agency (FSA) published comprehensive guidance for healthcare and social care organisations on managing listeria risk in vulnerable people in 2016. The FSA commissioned delivery of training to 557 key staff responsible for food safety in hospitals and 288 local authority Environmental Health Officers in a series of workshops and webinars in 2015.</p><p><strong> </strong></p>

star this property answer text <p>The NHS Long Term Plan advises that cardiovascular disease (CVD) is largely preventable, through lifestyle changes and a combination of public health and National Health Service action on smoking and tobacco addiction, obesity, tackling alcohol misuse and food reformulation.</p><p>A key milestone in the CVD section of the NHS Long Term Plan is for the National Health Service to help prevent up to 150,000 heart attacks, strokes and dementia cases over the next 10 years. The NHS Long Term Plan sets out that where individuals are identified with high risk conditions, appropriate preventative treatments will be offered in a timely way, and the creation of a national CVD prevention audit for primary care will also support continuous clinical improvement. NHS England and NHS Improvement will continue to work closely with key partners and stakeholders, such as the British Heart Foundation, as it supports the NHS to deliver the commitments set out in the NHS Long Term Plan.</p> more like this

This was a small pilot study of 14 people, and therefore research remains at an early stage. In order to be suitable for routine National Health Service use, larger scale clinical trials demonstrating the safety and efficacy of this treatment approach would need to be undertaken, and assessments of its cost effectiveness would also need to be considered.</p> more like this
