PCNs are agreed for the majority of practices in the area. It is expected that confirmation for the remaining small number of practices not yet signed up will be given before the deadline of 30 June. As soon as the full structure is agreed, it will be communicated with the Leicester population and stakeholders.

star this property answer text <p>The NHS Long Term Plan sets out plans to improve early cancer diagnosis, and a new ambition that, by 2028, the proportion of cancers diagnosed at stages one and two will rise from around half to three-quarters of cancer patients. This will be achieved through raising greater awareness of symptoms of cancer, accelerating access to diagnosis and treatment, maximising the number of cancers that are identified through screening, and harnessing new innovations in technology. A radical overhaul of the way diagnostic services are delivered will ensure that people can get their diagnosis more quickly, including the roll-out of new Rapid Diagnostic Centres across the country to upgrade and bring together the latest diagnostic equipment and expertise.</p><p> </p><p>The independent cancer taskforce recommended the introduction of a new faster diagnosis standard to ensure that people receive a life changing confirmation of whether or not they have cancer within 28 days. This proposed new standard is being considered as part of the clinical review of National Health Service access standards currently being undertaken by NHS England.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The United Kingdom participates in various transparency initiatives, including the European Integrated Price Information Database, the World Health Organization’s Pharmaceutical Pricing Reimbursement Information Network, and the Global Fund Price and Quality Database. The UK has a long-established and globally-recognised track record of assessing the price of new, innovative medicines according to their clinical value, rather than pricing by their development costs or international reference prices.</p><p>We believe that is the right approach: ensuring the development of the best medicines in areas of high unmet need are rewarded. The Government could not, therefore, agree to a resolution which had the potential to increase medicines prices and reduce patient access, by reducing the ability of the National Health Service to undertake commercial negotiations with pharmaceutical companies on the price of new medicines.</p><p>The approach taken by the NHS has meant we were the first country in Europe to offer innovative CAR-T therapies, alongside many other new medicines.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Cancer incidence rates over the last ten years for people under 25 years old show a minimal increase in absolute numbers. Unlike with many adult cancers, lifestyle-related risk factors (such as smoking) do not influence a young person’s risk of developing cancer so cancers are less preventable. The small increase in incidence therefore reflects changes in demographics rather than relative risk of having cancer at any given age.</p><p>As such, our focus is on research and ensuring that children and young people get the very best treatment and care if they do develop cancer. The NHS Long Term Plan has a series of commitments to improve outcomes for all cancer patients, including children and young people with cancer. For example, the National Health Service will actively support children and young people to take part in clinical trials, so that participation among children remains high, and among teenagers and young adults rises to 50% by 2025. Also, from 2019, the NHS will begin to offer all children with cancer whole genome sequencing to enable more comprehensive and precise diagnosis, and access to more personalised treatments.</p>
