The United Kingdom’s ability to import medical isotopes from Europe and the rest of the world will not be affected by withdrawal from Euratom. It is in everyone’s interest to not disrupt the timely access of treatment to patients and to ensure that cross-border trade with the European Union and Euratom is as frictionless as possible.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As set out in <em>Implementing the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health</em> the expansion of Improving Access to Psychological Therapies services will focus on people with long term conditions, including neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s, and/or medically unexplained symptoms. New psychological therapy provision will see physical and mental health care provision co-located. Therapy will be integrated into existing medical pathways and services – either primary care, or secondary care services including neurology.</p><p>Although the majority of people with Parkinson’s can be cared for through routine access to primary and secondary care, NHS England commissions the specialised elements of Parkinson’s care that patients may receive from 24 specialised neurological treatment centres across England. Within these centres neurological multidisciplinary teams ensure patients can access a range of health professionals, including neurologists, neurosurgeons, clinical nurse specialists, psychologists, and that they can receive specialised treatment and support, according to their needs.</p><p>The Neurology Advisory Group will ensure that there is system alignment and a national approach when considering the recommendations, which will be of benefit to patients.</p><p>NHS England is also working with the Neurological Alliance, following the publication on 5 July 2017 of their report on mental health and neurological conditions, <em>Parity of esteem for people affected by neurological conditions: meeting the emotional, cognitive &amp; mental health needs of neurology patients</em>.</p><p>A copy of the report is attached.</p>

Often when patents expire, generic versions enter the market and, as a result of competition, prices often go down.</p><p> </p><p>In primary care, the community pharmacy contractual framework provides an incentive for pharmacies to get the best medicines prices; in secondary care, a system of central tenders delivers similar levels of savings.
