star this property answer text <p>The Department knows that some parts of the National Health Service are under pressure at the moment. Health Visitors and other health professionals have the potential to play a strong role in reducing the burden on emergency departments. We welcome proposals on innovative ways to achieve this.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>NHS England has advised that while health visiting services are currently provided in many community locations including children’s centres, community clinics and local general practitioner surgeries, NHS England is carrying out work to look at how health visitors, in response to local need, can support other frontline services and provide more support and advice to parents on caring for their children.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>For example, London and Midland and East Regions are looking at opportunities which will simultaneously enhance the health visiting service provision and support a reduction in accident and emergency attendance and waiting times over the winter period.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In both regions the services offered will fall within the professional scope of Health Visitors and are designed to support families receive the most appropriate care. In addition, health visitors in accident and emergency departments can support delivery of the high impact areas: particularly managing minor illness, preventing accidents and also support maternal mental health, early attachment, and transition to parenthood and breastfeeding.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>These ideas have been shared with the other regions.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The report makes a number of assumptions, including that exit screening procedures were not in place in the major affected countries. Since the report was published in August exit screening in the three most affected countries is now in place.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Screening is now in operation in Heathrow, Gatwick, Birmingham and Manchester airports and at St Pancras (Eurostar). The purpose of screening is to identify, and give advice to, passengers coming from high risk areas who will be spending time in the United Kingdom. This is to provide them with relevant advice on the nature of the virus, what to be aware of, and what action to take should they begin to display any symptoms.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>General Practitioner (GP) income is made up of global sum payments for carrying out essential and additional services under the contract. Practices may also receive further payments for specific services including:</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>- enhanced services – those that require an enhanced level of service provision above what is required under the core contract. The additional payment for diagnosing dementia falls within this category; and</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>- the quality and outcomes framework (QOF) - a voluntary incentive scheme that provides payment to GP practices for how well they care for patients based on performance against a number of agreed indicators.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Specifically on diagnosis, a number of QOF indicators are concerned with the establishment of disease registers. In order to receive payment GPs are required to ensure diagnosis levels consistent with those expected for their population for the following conditions:</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>- atrial fibrillation;</p><p> </p><p>- coronary heart disease;</p><p> </p><p>- heart failure;</p><p> </p><p>- hypertension;</p><p> </p><p>- peripheral arterial disease;</p><p> </p><p>- stroke and trans-ischaemic attack;</p><p> </p><p>- diabetes mellitus;</p><p> </p><p>- hypothyroidism;</p><p> </p><p>- asthma;</p><p> </p><p>- chronic obstructive pulmonary disease;</p><p> </p><p>- dementia;</p><p> </p><p>- depression;</p><p> </p><p>- schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder and other psychoses and other patients on lithium therapy;</p><p> </p><p>- cancer;</p><p> </p><p>- chronic kidney disease;</p><p> </p><p>- epilepsy;</p><p> </p><p>- osteoporosis;</p><p> </p><p>- rheumatoid arthritis; and</p><p> </p><p>- obesity.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Each year NHS Employers, on behalf of NHS England, negotiates the new GP contract with the General Practitioners Council of the British Medical Association.
