star this property answer text <p>The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) has strengthened its requirements for how clinics should take consent from patients and partners in 2016.</p><p>The new edition of the HFEA’s Code of Practice, to be published shortly, will provide further guidance on the processes clinics should have in place to ensure consent is informed, taken properly and given by the right person. The guidance states that consent should be given at the clinic, where possible, and where this is not possible, that there should be a documented process in place for ensuring consent has been given by the right person. In particular, clinics need to be satisfied about the patients’ legal relationships to each other and, where the partner of a patient has not visited the clinic or does not return for subsequent treatment, the clinic should take reasonable steps to find out if the partner still consents to treatment.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department is aware of the Centre for Social Justice’s recent report into supporting fathers during the perinatal period and early parenthood, published in December 2018. The Department recognises the vital role fathers can often play during pregnancy and early years, as well as the fact that every family is different.</p><p>We welcome the high levels of engagement fathers currently have with various aspects of the health service, as cited in the report, including the estimated 94% of new fathers that have attended one or more antenatal appointments, and almost all attending both ultrasound scans and the birth itself.</p><p>The Maternity Transformation Programme is working to make maternity care more personalised including responding to the needs of fathers as well as mothers. Postnatal and perinatal mental health care, maternity care and personalised care plans are recognised as important for the whole family, including fathers, and they should therefore be involved where appropriate.</p><p>Furthermore, the Healthy Child Programme states that the father’s contribution should be one of the key topics to be covered during a health and development review by a health visitor. It emphasises the importance of ensuring that contact with the family routinely involves and supports fathers, including non-resident fathers.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Liothyronine is an unbranded generic medicine. The Department encourages competition between suppliers of unbranded generic medicines to keep prices down. This generally works well and has led to some of the lowest prices in Europe.</p><p>Concerns about anti-competitive behaviour are a matter for the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) to investigate. Liothyronine, marketed by Concordia, is currently the subject of an investigation by the CMA, which has provisionally found that Concordia abused its dominant position to overcharge the National Health Service by millions for liothyronine tablets. A provisional decision does not necessarily lead to an infringement decision. Where companies have breached competition law, the Department will seek damages and invest that money back into the NHS.</p><p>The Department also has its own powers to limit prices of unbranded generic medicines and will consult early in 2019 with the relevant industry bodies on implementation of those powers.</p>
