star this property answer text <p>The NHS Long Term Plan included an ambition that 75% of cancers will be diagnosed at stage 1 and 2 by 2028. The plan sets out a number of key steps to achieve this, including raising greater awareness of symptoms of cancer, accelerating access to diagnosis and treatment and maximising the number of cancers that we identify through screening. Meeting this ambition will also require the National Health Service to harness new technological advances to target at risk patients more effectively; directing our research and innovation effort to the areas where the data tells us we can have the biggest impact; and mobilising the NHS so that we can adopt proven new approaches more quickly.</p><p>In February 2019, NHS England announced that Targeted Lung Health Checks will be one of the first projects to roll out following the launch of the NHS Long Term Plan that was published in January 2019. The Targeted Lung Health Check programme will cover 10 initial sites covering 14 clinical commissioning groups until 2023 in areas that have been selected as they have some of the highest rates of lung cancer mortality. People aged 55-74 that have ever smoked will be invited to have a free lung check. Results from these initial sites will form the basis for a wider rollout across the country.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Public Health England (PHE) continues to run awareness campaigns focused on the symptoms of lung cancer where the messaging is relevant to both smokers and non-smokers.</p><p>For example, the PHE Be Clear on Cancer Respiratory Symptoms campaign encourages those with a persistent cough or inappropriate breathlessness to visit their doctor, with the aim of improving earlier diagnosis of heart and lung disease, including lung cancer. The campaign has run twice nationally, in 2016 and 2017. This campaign can be viewed at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.nhs.uk/be-clear-on-cancer" target="_blank">https://www.nhs.uk/be-clear-on-cancer</a></p><p>The precursor to this campaign centred on one main symptom, that of a persistent cough, as a possible symptom of lung cancer. This lung cancer campaign ran nationally three times, in 2012, 2013 and 2014.</p><p>The Be Clear on Cancer campaign materials, explain that although lung cancer is more common in smokers, those who have never smoked can also get the disease, including details of the number of people diagnosed with lung cancer each year. The leaflet is available at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://campaignresources.phe.gov.uk/resources/campaigns/46/resources/1744" target="_blank">https://campaignresources.phe.gov.uk/resources/campaigns/46/resources/1744</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>It is widely recognised that, along with lowering the burden of infection and exposure to resistance and optimising our use of antimicrobials, we also need a sustainable supply of new diagnostics, therapies and vaccines to tackle antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The World Bank has predicted a global shortfall of $1 trillion gross domestic product per year after 2030 that could push an extra 28.3 million people into extreme poverty if we do not address AMR; potentially an additional 10 million deaths will be attributable to AMR by 2050.</p><p>The new United Kingdom five-year AMR national action plan, published alongside the UK 20-year vision for AMR on 24 January 2019, has therefore made the commitment to continue to invest in and promote innovation to tackle AMR and to work with international partners to agree a coordinated global system for incentivising new diagnostics and therapeutics. The UK is leading the way in testing solutions that address the failure of companies to invest in the development of new antimicrobials.</p>
