star this property answer text <p>For Primary Care Networks (PCNs) to be successful they will need to work in partnership with local people and the communities they serve. NHS England does have a statutory duty to undertake an annual assessment of clinical commissioning groups’ (CCGs) performance, as part of the CCG Improvement and Assessment Framework (IAF). One of the indicators assessed is patient and community engagement. All NHS service providers, including general practitioner practices, have legal duties to engage with local authority health scrutiny about changes which may be considered substantial. These duties which currently apply to NHS service providers and commissioners around engagement and consultation will continue to be valid.</p><p>Further information on the IAF is available on the NHS England website at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.england.nhs.uk/commissioning/regulation/ccg-assess/" target="_blank">https://www.england.nhs.uk/commissioning/regulation/ccg-assess/</a></p><p>Results from the assessments are published on ‘MyNHS’ at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.nhs.uk/service-search/performance-indicators/organisations/ccg-year-end-2015-assurance-assessment" target="_blank">https://www.nhs.uk/service-search/performance-indicators/organisations/ccg-year-end-2015-assurance-assessment</a></p><p>The assessments made are in line with the document ‘Patient and public participation in commissioning health and care: statutory guidance for CCGs and NHS England’, which is at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.england.nhs.uk/publication/patient-and-public-participation-in-commissioning-health-and-care-statutory-guidance-for-ccgs-and-nhs-england/" target="_blank">https://www.england.nhs.uk/publication/patient-and-public-participation-in-commissioning-health-and-care-statutory-guidance-for-ccgs-and-nhs-england/</a></p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The most common invasive fungal infection in the United Kingdom is blood stream infection with yeast, often following surgical interventions. Public Health England (PHE) has prepared advisory documentation for national dissemination and individual hospital response following recent outbreaks caused by this organism, which can be viewed at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/candida-auris-emergence-in-england/candida-auris-within-the-united-kingdom-updated-guidance-published" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/candida-auris-emergence-in-england/candida-auris-within-the-united-kingdom-updated-guidance-published</a></p><p>Invasive mould infections such as invasive aspergillosis are more often seen in patients with haematological malignancies or those undergoing treatment for them, and it is difficult to capture absolute data on the incidence of these due to difficulty in definitive diagnosis.</p><p>Chronic yeast infections are frequently seen in females that have suffered recurrent bouts of vaginal candidosis (thrush). Estimates suggest that 70% of women report having had at least one episode whilst 8% have repeated and persistent infections. Dermatophyte infections, including athletes’ foot are extremely common, found in about 10% of the adult population at any one time. Scalp and nail infections with these organisms are more disfiguring and difficult to treat.</p>
