star this property answer text <p>We recognise that missed appointments are a waste of National Health Service resources. 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>

star this property answer text <p>We know that variation exists between clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in the provision of care for neurological conditions, such as Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis. Whilst it is right that CCGs have autonomy to shape services for local populations, there is a range of work ongoing at a national level to identify unwarranted variation in order to drive improvement, including:</p><p> </p><p>- Through the RightCare programme, which was rolled out to every CCG in 2016/17, NHS England provides practical support to commissioners to tackle unwarranted variation and identify improvements and savings, including for neurological services;</p><p>- Public Health England’s Neurology intelligence network collates and interprets data on adult neurological conditions to provide intelligence for the National Health Service, policy makers, and clinicians; and</p><p>- The Getting it Right First Time programme, supported by NHS Improvement, expanded earlier in 2017 to include neurology and will soon provide insight to demonstrate the value of better neurological services both in hospitals and in the community.</p><p> </p><p>NHS England will continue to work with the Neurological Alliance (an umbrella organisation for neurological condition charities) to support the new national Neurology Advisory Group (NAG), led by consultant neurologist Professor Adrian Williams. The NAG brings together system partners, professional bodies stakeholders to align work to improve neurological care, and has working to understand how best to utilise new and emerging data in services and outcomes. More information on national initiatives to reduce unwarranted variation and drive improvement can be found at the following links:</p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.england.nhs.uk/rightcare/" target="_blank">www.england.nhs.uk/rightcare/</a></p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.gov.uk/guidance/neurology-data-and-analysis-a-guide-for-health-professionals" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/guidance/neurology-data-and-analysis-a-guide-for-health-professionals</a></p><p> </p><p><a href="http://gettingitrightfirsttime.co.uk/" target="_blank">gettingitrightfirsttime.co.uk/</a></p>
