unstar this property answer text <p>The Government hugely values the contribution of the 104,000 European Union staff who work in the social care sector. The Prime Minister has made it clear that we not only want them to stay, but also to feel welcomed and encouraged to do so. The EU Settlement Scheme has now fully opened, is free and will allow EU nationals employed in the social care sector to secure their long-term status in the United Kingdom.</p><p>The Department continues to monitor and analyse overall staffing levels across both the health and social care sectors and we have been monitoring leaver and joiner rates of European Union staff on a regular basis since the 2016 referendum. We are not complacent and have plans in place to ensure there will continue to be enough staff to deliver the high-quality services on which the public relies.</p> more like this

The NIHR welcomes funding applications for research into any aspect of human health. However, the NIHR has not conducted any research into links between head injuries sustained through sport and motor neurone disease.</p><p>It is not usual practice to ring-fence funds for particular topics or conditions. Applications are subject to peer review and judged in open competition, with awards being made on the basis of the importance of the topic to patients and health and care services, value for money and scientific quality. In all disease areas, the amount of NIHR funding depends on the volume and quality of scientific activity.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The National Autistic Society estimates that around 70-80% of autistic people will develop a mental health condition at some point in their lives. It is therefore critical that autistic people have equitable access to mental health services, with reasonable adjustments made where appropriate.</p><p>On 5 December 2018, the Government announced that we will be launching a comprehensive review of our autism strategy, ‘Think Autism’. This is to ensure it remains fit for purpose. The Government wants an autism strategy that works for all autistic people, and that is why, working very closely with the Department for Education, the Department of Health and Social Care will be extending the strategy to include children.</p><p>To inform our review we launched a national call for evidence, which closed on 16 May. This will help us understand what is working and where we need to push harder to transform experiences of autistic people. We will be considering the evidence in respect of mental health services as part of this and we will be publishing the revised strategy later this year.</p><p>In March 2018, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) updated their existing guideline and Quality Standard on diagnosing and managing attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adults, young people and children. NICE has established an expert working group to look at how the current NICE guidance and quality standard on ADHD are being implemented. It is working to identify best practice and examples of innovation, which have improved outcomes for people with ADHD, so that these can be widely disseminated to commissioners to improve local practice.</p><p><br> Under the NHS Long Term Plan, there will be a comprehensive expansion of mental health services, with an additional £2.3 billion in real terms by 2023/24. This will give 380,000 more adults access to psychological therapies and 345,000 more children and young people greater support in the next five years. The National Health Service will also roll out new waiting times to ensure rapid access to mental health services in the community for those that need it and expand crisis care.</p><p> </p>
