star this property answer text <p>This Government is committed to improving perinatal mental health services for women during pregnancy and in the first postnatal year, so that women are able to access the right care at the right time and close to home. The Department is investing £365 million from 2015/16 to 2020/21 in perinatal mental health services and NHS England is leading a transformation programme to ensure that, by 2020/21, at least 30,000 more women each year are able to access evidence-based specialist mental health care during the perinatal period.</p><p>A key aim of this transformation programme is to take a preventative approach wherever possible, including: earlier diagnosis and intervention; support for recovery; and reducing avoidable harm.</p><p>To drive forward change, NHS England is also investing in multidisciplinary perinatal mental health clinical networks across the country, which includes general practitioners as part of the networks. These clinical networks focus on collaborative working to develop local, integrated pathways and to support early identification of those at risk of mental illness in the perinatal period, to enable better outcomes for women in all communities.</p><p>Looking ahead, we are continuing to work with the National Health Service to develop a 10 year plan for the future of the health service, underpinned by a five-year funding offer which will see the NHS budget grow by over £20 billion a year in real terms by 2023-24. The NHS will work closely with Government to produce the plan, which will set out how the money will be used to deliver our vision for the health service and to ensure every penny is well spent.</p><p>The plan will be published later this year. Better access to mental health services is one of the priorities to help achieve the Government’s commitment for parity of esteem between mental and physical health. This will be a significant step forward towards improving, and continuing to deliver, high-quality mental health support services.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Health visitors undertake five mandated visits between the ages of zero to five. Three of these mandated visits occur during the first three months after birth which are the antenatal health visit, new baby review and six to eight-week assessment. The length of each visit will be entirely dependent on the individual needs of the mother and baby. Some families will require additional visits and support, the health visitor will use their professional judgement and public health expertise to determine need and support. Local authorities are responsible for commissioning health visiting services, local monitoring of service delivery and commissioning compliance should be undertaken locally as part of contract management.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Public Health England (PHE) carried out an extensive review of the effectiveness of drug treatment in England. The review gives policy makers and local areas an objective assessment of what drug treatment outcomes are achievable, and compares outcomes in England to the evidence and to other drug treatment systems. <em>An evidence review of outcomes that can be expected of drug misuse treatment in England</em> is attached.</p><p>Local authorities are responsible for assessing local need for substance misuse treatment and commissioning services to meet these needs. This includes making sure the services follow clinical guidelines in treating people who have dependence problems. The United Kingdom drug treatment clinical guidelines set out guidance for clinicians in managing withdrawal for patients from prescribed medicines.</p><p>PHE is undertaking a review of the evidence for dependence on, and withdrawal from, prescribed medicines. The review will bring together the best available evidence on effective prevention and treatment of dependence, withdrawal and discontinuation syndrome for each drug category. The review is due to be published in spring 2019.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) technology appraisal methods and processes are internationally respected and have been developed through periodic review, including extensive engagement with stakeholders, to ensure that they remain fit for purpose.</p><p>Departmental officials and I have met with NHS England to discuss the treatment criteria relating to the use of ibrutinib for the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). NHS England has advised that it develops treatment criteria for cancer and other high cost drugs to support implementation of NICE guidance and to ensure approved treatments are available as intended, with access funded consistently across the country. These criteria are developed by relevant expert clinical advisers, drawn from NHS England’s 42 Clinical Reference Groups (CRGs). These CRGs have been established to support clinical commissioning across the entire specialised commissioning portfolio.</p><p>NHS England has recently completed a review of the treatment criteria related to the use of ibrutinib for the treatment of CLL which concluded that the criteria should be amended such that ibrutinib can be made available as a treatment option for those patients who have had remission durations of three years or more with their preceding line of therapy. Ibrutinib is now available for National Health Service patients in line with the amended treatment criteria.</p>

The latest National Health Service planning guidance, issued by NHS England in February 2018, requires clinical commissioning groups to provide extended access to general practice to their whole population by 1 October 2018, to ensure additional capacity is in place ahead of winter 2018.</p><p> </p><p>The General Practice Forward View (GP Forward View), published in April 2016, commits increasing investment in General Practice by £2.4 billion a year by 2020/2021 from £9.7 billion in 2015/16 to over £12 billion by 2020/21 – a 14% real-terms increase. It will improve patient care and access, and invest in new ways of providing primary care.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, the number of doctors entering speciality training has been increasing year on year. In 2017/18, there were 3,157 new starters recruited to speciality GP training posts, the highest number recruited ever. In August 2017 NHS England announced plans to accelerate its international recruitment programme and recruit 2,000 doctors into English general practice over the following three years. To boost retention there is a broad offer available to support GPs to remain in the NHS including the GP Health Service, the GP Retention Scheme, and the recently launched a £10 million GP Retention Fund which includes funds targeted at specific areas.</p><p> </p><p>University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust have been closely supported by NHS Improvement’s Intensive Support Team for the last 12 months and are actively working through recommendations to improve emergency care. NHS Improvement has recently offered £347,000 to support transformation work around urgent and emergency care in Coventry; funds will be distributed to areas with the greatest scope for patient care improvements.</p><p> </p><p>Hospitals in Coventry are also supported by national services, such as NHS 111, which offers a 24/7 service available across England for patients who require non-urgent advice which can include input from a range of clinical professionals where appropriate.</p>
