star this property answer text <p>We welcome the King’s Fund’s recent report, ‘Closing the gap: Key areas for action for the health and care workforce’, and agree that it is essential to ensure the health and care sector has the right number of people, with the right skills and values to provide high quality services.</p><p> </p><p>That is why the recently published Long Term Plan for the National Health Service committed funding for 20,000 more staff working in general practitioner practices and the Government has made funding available to increase university training places for nurses by 25%. Baroness Dido Harding is chairing a rapid programme of work, which will engage with staff, employers, professional organisations, trade unions and think tanks to build a shared vision and a plan of action that puts NHS people at the heart of NHS policy and delivery.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Leaving the European Union with a deal remains the Government’s top priority. However, as a responsible Government we must plan for every possible outcome including ‘no deal’. The Department has published guidance to industry and the health and care system to allow them to make informed plans and preparations. This is available on GOV.UK.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has been working closely with industry to ensure the supply of medicines, including medical radioisotopes to diagnose and treat breast cancer, can continue uninterrupted in the event of a ‘no deal’ EU exit.</p><p> </p><p>For any products that require air freight, such as medical radioisotopes, we are continuing to work with all suppliers to ensure this occurs. The Department can confirm that companies supplying the vast majority of medical radioisotopes medicines by volume have air freight routes that are currently operational.</p><p> </p><p>The Department wrote to all suppliers of medicines to the United Kingdom on 26 March to advise them of the changes to EU exit dates, and ask them to continue with preparations to protect patients in all possible outcomes.</p><p> </p><p>We are confident that, if everyone does what they need to do, the supply of medicines and medical products will be uninterrupted.</p>
