answer text <p>A search of the Department’s Ministerial correspondence database has identified four items of correspondence received on the capability of National Health Service urinary tract infection (UTI) screening tests to detect bacteria in the bladder's lining during the past 12 months. This figure represents correspondence received by the Department’s Ministerial correspondence unit only.</p><p>In November 2018 Public Health England published guidance on the diagnosis of UTIs. This guidance states that “no individual or combination (of symptoms or dipstick) are completely reliable in diagnosing UTI, thus severity of symptoms and safety-netting are important.”</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Department has not deprioritised any European Union exit Statutory Instruments (SIs).</p><p> </p><p>Our objective has always been to have a functioning statute book in place by ‘exit day’ and to ensure that the most critical secondary legislation was made by this point. Each SI was carefully considered on a case-by-case basis, enabling the Department to lay the critical secondary legislation required before we exit the EU.</p><p> </p><p>Given the extension to Article 50, the Department will consider whether any further EU exit SIs will need to be brought forward to amend any EU Regulations which have come into force since the original EU Exit SI programme was finalised, to ensure a functioning statute book ahead of a potential ‘no deal’ exit. The Department will keep this under careful review.</p> more like this

The Breast Cancer Screening Programme service specification includes provision for the surveillance of high risk women for early detection of breast cancer (including those with the BRCA 1 and 2 genes) and timely referral to treatment as appropriate. Specifically, following an assessment by specialised services, and referral from a genetics or oncology service, high risk women who meet the eligibility criteria (as outlined in the published guidance) will be included in the screening programme at a younger age and according to different protocols to the general population.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Acute Data Alignment Programme (ADAPt) was established on 9 January 2018, and was launched in June 2018. The ADAPt Programme is jointly led by NHS Digital and the Private Healthcare Information Network (PHIN) in partnership with stakeholders from the Department, NHS Improvement, NHS England, and the Care Quality Commission.</p><p> </p><p>The programme has served to develop good working relationships between PHIN, NHS Digital and key stakeholders. The first phase focuses on ensuring that independent hospitals and National Health Service private patient units are submitting robust, complete and accurate data to PHIN, and that performance measures already required to be published by Order of the Competition and Markets Authority can be achieved as quickly as possible. The second phase will ensure the data flows from independent providers into NHS Digital, just as it does from NHS providers, enabling consistency in measurement and understanding of both risk of harm and health outcomes for patients wherever they are treated.</p>

answer text <p>The Chief Medical Officer and NHS England issued a letter on the 31 October 2018, and a supplementary letter on 20 November 2018, providing guidance to clinicians, the National Health Service and independent organisations following the rescheduling of cannabis-based products for medicinal use on 1 November 2018. This signposts interim guidance issued by the Royal College of Physicians, British Paediatric Neurology Association and Association of British Neurologists.</p><p> </p><p>Furthermore, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), has been commissioned to develop guidelines on the prescribing of cannabis-based medicinal products by October 2019. The guidance will focus on four indications: chronic pain, intractable nausea and vomiting, treatment-resistant epilepsy and spasticity. It will be based on the best available international evidence and produced using NICE’s world-renowned process for delivering such guidelines. This guidance will update and replace the interim guidance.</p><p> </p>
