star this property answer text <p>The NHS Long Term Plan published in January 2019 sets out the Government’s ambitions to see 55,000 more people surviving cancer for five years in England each year from 2028 and three quarters of all cancers detected at an early stage by 2028. To achieve these targets, we will need to make significant progress on survival across all cancers, including cervical cancer.</p><p> </p><p>NHS England will shortly be introducing a Faster Diagnostic Standard of 28 days for all cancer patients which, when taken together with the 62-day referral to treatment standard, will mean that all patients should expect to start their treatment within 34 days of diagnosis. This is a maximum, and trusts should continue to treat patients more quickly particularly where there is a strong clinical need.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Public Health England (PHE) is not a statutory consultee under the planning regime. Local authority planners should consider consulting the Director of Public Health on any planning applications (including at the pre-application stage) that are likely to have a significant impact on the health and wellbeing of the local population or particular groups within it. This guidance can be viewed at the following links:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/consultation-and-pre-decision-matters#Statutory-consultees-on-applications" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/guidance/consultation-and-pre-decision-matters#Statutory-consultees-on-applications</a></p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/health-and-wellbeing#health-organisation-contact" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/guidance/health-and-wellbeing#health-organisation-contact</a>.</p><p> </p><p>Where consulted on planning applications, PHE takes the view that emissions from such plants are best considered as part of the associated environmental permit application. PHE is consulted by the Environment Agency and provides an independent opinion on all bespoke environmental permit applications, such as municipal waste incinerators, with regard to public health impacts. These assessments cover a range of emissions to air, water and land, including but not exclusively particulate matter.
