answer text <p>The National Health Service provides three national cancer population-based screening programmes as part of the Section 7a Public Health services, commissioned by NHS England on behalf of the Secretary of State.</p><p>During 2018, the NHS screened 3.2 million women for cervical abnormalities; 2.6 million people for bowel cancer; and 2.1 million women for breast cancer.</p><p>The NHS Long Term Plan commits to modernising the Bowel Cancer screening programme to detect more cancers earlier by lowering the starting age for bowel screening from 60 to 50 over time and replacing the guaiac Faecal Occult Blood Test kit with the more sensitive Faecal Immunochemical Test for haemoglobin from summer 2019. It also confirmed that using human papillomavirus testing as the primary screen for cervical cancer will be implemented across England by 2020.</p><p><strong><em> </em></strong></p><p><strong><em> </em></strong></p><p><strong><em> </em></strong></p><p><strong><em> </em></strong></p> more like this

answer text <p>Professor Sir Mike Richards has published his interim independent review of national cancer screening programmes in England.</p><p>The interim report makes two recommendations: that local systems across the country take immediate action to address the decline in screening uptake by implementing interventions for which a clear evidence base already exists; and that national stakeholders should ensure IT systems for general practitioner registrations and screening are fit for purpose.</p><p>The report notes that in order to encourage uptake in harder to reach groups, the Government needs to build the evidence base for other emerging interventions, paying particular attention to novel approaches that have been introduced locally and appear to be successful. Evaluation would be needed to determine whether they can be replicated on a wider scale. Professor Sir Mike Richards has committed to gathering further evidence on these and other interventions as the review progresses and will include specific work with faith and ethnic groups, experts on physical and learning disabilities and with LGBT+ communities on their specific concerns about screening, with a particular focus on the transgender community.</p><p>The Government awaits the final recommendations which will be reported in the summer 2019, and will consider these carefully, alongside the recommendations from the recent reports published by the Public Accounts Committee, the National Audit Office's investigation into screening and the national Cancer Strategy.</p>

answer text <p>The Department invests over £1 billion a year in health research through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). The NIHR welcomes funding applications for research into any aspect of human health, including to examine the effects of air quality on cancer rates in specific locations. These applications are subject to peer review and judged in open competition, with awards being made on the basis of the importance of the topic to patients and health and care services, value for money and scientific quality.</p><p>The NIHR funds a broad spectrum of research on the effects of air quality on health through the NIHR Health Protection Research Units (HPRUs). Since 2014, the NIHR has funded the HPRU in Health Impact of Environmental Hazards at a cost of £4.4 million. This Unit is a partnership between King’s College London and Public Health England and conducts a wide-ranging programme of research on the health impacts of air pollutants.</p> more like this

The NHS Long Term Plan’s commitment is to build on this work of piloting FCP services across England.</p><p> </p><p>Further progress to be delivered in 2019/20 includes the development of a national mobilisation plan for local systems to roll out this service for patients across the country. To support successful mobilisation by local systems, the specification for FCP services for MSK conditions has recently been published and can be found via the following link:</p><p><a href="http://www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/elective-care-high-impact-interventions-first-contact-practitioner-msk-services-specification.pdf" target="_blank">www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/elective-care-high-impact-interventions-first-contact-practitioner-msk-services-specification.pdf</a></p><p>All adults in England will have direct access to MSK FCP by 2023/24, across all Primary Care Networks. This will enable patients to see the right professional first time, first place without needing a general practitioner (GP) referral.</p><p> </p><p>NHS England published a five-year framework for GP contract reform this year which has committed to invest £891 million to fund an additional 20,000 workforce across five staff groups including MSK FCPs to support general practice.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p>

answer text <p>As set out in the Long Term Plan, an Implementation Framework will be published shortly which will set out the next steps the National Health Service will take to deliver the commitments and the national activity and support available to systems. The Implementation Framework will assist systems, which will build on the engagement already taking place across the country, in developing their strategic Long Term Plan implementation plan over the summer. NHS England and Improvement will then publish a national implementation plan in the autumn.</p><p>As set out in the NHS Planning Guidance, all systems will work with the NHS RightCare programme to implement national priority initiatives for respiratory conditions in 2019/20.</p><p>Action will include:</p><p>- Expanding the pioneering lung health checks trialled in Manchester and Liverpool, which will identify more cancers quickly and detect other conditions including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); and</p><p> </p><p>- Rolling out the NHS RightCare COPD pathway nationally through clinical commissioning groups. This includes timely access to pulmonary rehabilitation as part of the optimal treatment pathway. The pathway provides a set of resources to support local health economies to concentrate their improvement efforts to address variation and improve population health.</p>

answer text <p>As set out in the NHS Long Term Plan, an Implementation Framework will be published shortly which will set out the next steps the National Health Service will take to deliver the commitments and the national activity and support available to systems. The Implementation Framework will assist local health systems, who will build on the engagement already taking place across the country, in developing their strategic Long Term Plan implementation plan over the summer. NHS England and NHS Improvement will then publish a national implementation plan in the autumn.</p><p>NHS England has made Service Development Funding available to every Cancer Alliance across the country to support the roll out from this year, starting with one Rapid Diagnostic Centre in each cancer alliance region in 2019/20.</p><p>NHS England has announced funding of £70 million over four years to fund lung health checks in 10 areas of the country with some of the highest death rates from lung cancer. The roll out has the potential to reach around 600,000 people over four years, detecting approximately 3,400 cancers and saving hundreds of lives across the country. Work has started now in the 10 areas to plan the delivery of projects.</p><p><strong> </strong></p>
