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>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is not actively looking to increase the number of community pharmacies in England.</p><p>Applications to provide National Health Service pharmaceutical services continue to be determined by NHS England and NHS Improvement, informed by the local pharmaceutical needs assessment, which outlines the level of NHS pharmaceutical services provision in a given area, including if there are any gaps or unmet needs.</p><p>In England, access to NHS pharmaceutical services is good. 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>

Any serious side effects are extremely rare, and the large majority of side effects are mild and transient, such as sore arms, headaches and tiredness. We would recommend that all eligible children are vaccinated, as any potential risk of side effects is far outweighed by the benefits of vaccination.</p><p>Healthcare professionals have access to a range of materials, such as ‘Immunisation against infectious disease: the green book’ and Patient Group Directions to support their decision-making in the case of any suspected adverse effects.</p><p>The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) operates the ‘Yellow Card Scheme’, which is vital in helping the MHRA monitor the safety of all healthcare products in the UK. This system allows for reporting of any potential adverse events for all medicines, including vaccines, with guidance for healthcare professionals, patients and the public on how to use the scheme.</p><p>In addition, Public Health England (PHE) offers diagnostic services for suspected cases of encephalitis, which is a notifiable condition. Under statutory duty, cases must be reported by healthcare professionals to PHE’s local Health Protection Teams.
