star this property answer text <p>For the majority of people, their pension contributions are tax-free. This makes pensions tax relief one of the most expensive reliefs in the personal tax system. The reforms to the lifetime and annual allowance made in the previous two parliaments are expected to save over £6 billion per year and are necessary to deliver a fair system and protect public finances. Less than 1% of pension savers will have to reduce their saving or face an annual allowance charge as a result of the tapered annual allowance.</p><p>While there are no plans to compensate senior National Health Service staff who exceed their tax-free pension savings allowances, the Scheme Pays facility is there to assist NHS Pension Scheme members who breach the annual allowance, and allows them to settle their lifetime and annual allowance charges without making an upfront payment. The Scheme Pays facility was recently extended to cover tax charges of any amount and those arising from the tapered annual allowance.</p><p>The Government has launched a full public consultation setting out proposals to make the NHS Pension Scheme more flexible for clinicians, to give them more control over their pension growth and tax liabilities.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Public Health England (PHE) has prioritised collecting the necessary data across the National Health Service to enable estimation and monitoring of the proportion of cases, deaths and costs attributable to carbapenemase-resistant Enterobacteriaceae.</p><p>In May 2015 PHE implemented an enhanced surveillance system of all carbapenemase-producing Gram negative bacteria, which was modified in 2019 to maximise efficiency. The health burden of cases, estimated from these data, will be published in the <em>English Surveillance Programme for Antimicrobial Utilisation Report</em> in November 2019.</p><p>The few published reports of outbreaks have estimated costs of at least £1 million, and up to £5 million, all indicating multi-model control measures are required, as outlined in the PHE toolkit for prevention and control of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae which is currently being updated.</p><p>Using national surveillance and patient administration data to develop mathematical models, work is ongoing to estimate the reduction in levels of illness and death when specified detection and control measures are applied by 2020. Developed models will enable associated costs incurred to be estimated and the cost-effectiveness of control measures to be established by 2021.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Public Health England (PHE) has published a series of reports on electronic cigarettes including the effects of vaping on health. The reports are available to view at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/e-cigarettes-and-vaping-policy-regulation-and-guidance" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/e-cigarettes-and-vaping-policy-regulation-and-guidance</a></p><p>While nicotine can contribute to raised blood pressure and cardiovascular risk, it is tar and carbon monoxide, which are the major sources of cardiovascular risk in cigarette smoke, producing nicotine vapour from a solution rather than by burning tobacco means that electronic cigarette vapour is free from almost all the toxic chemicals that accompany nicotine in cigarette smoke.</p><p>The Office for National Statistics has recorded the numbers of people using e-cigarettes since 2014 and the combined number of people using e-cigarettes and smoking has not increased since then. The proportion of people who smoke has decreased substantially in the same period.</p><p>PHE encourages people who both vape and smoke to stop smoking completely, because this greatly reduces health risks.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p>

There are over 11,500 community pharmacies, which is 12% more than a decade ago. This coverage means that 80% of the population live within 20 minutes walking distance of a community pharmacy, with more pharmacies in the most deprived areas.</p><p>Maintaining access to NHS pharmaceutical services remains an important priority for the Government. We will continue to maintain the good level of access we have in England through the Pharmacy Access Scheme, which provides additional financial support to pharmacies in areas where there are fewer pharmacies.</p>
