The Government's principles governing data-sharing agreements entered into by National Health Service organisations, originally published in draft in December 2018 and reaffirmed in the policy framework update document published earlier this month, make clear that NHS data may only be accessed by third parties where there is an explicit aim to improve the health, welfare and/or care of patients in the NHS or the operation of the NHS, and that a fair share of the benefits from any agreements flow back to the NHS. We do not anticipate this will change when the United Kingdom leaves the European Union.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Life expectancy is as high as it has ever been in this country, but the rate of increase in life expectancy has slowed down in recent years. To better understand the reasons for the slowdown, the Department commissioned Public Health England to publish <em>A review of recent trends in mortality in England</em>, which includes comparison to other parts of the United Kingdom, the European Union and United States of America. A copy of the review is attached.</p><p>The overall slowdown in improvements is due to a range of factors operating simultaneously across a wide range of age groups, places, and causes of death. Issues include:</p><p> </p><p>- the slowdown in improvement in mortality from heart disease and stroke, which are the leading causes of death. This is partly influenced by the increasing prevalence of diabetes, obesity, and low physical activity;</p><p>- the size and frequency of recent winter peaks in mortality, which were influenced by the intensity and dominant type of influenza circulating, flu vaccine uptake and effectiveness, and is sometimes exacerbated by cold weather, especially among the very elderly people living with conditions such as dementia. Housing and fuel poverty are key to cold weather vulnerability;</p><p>- in younger adults, the cause of death that had the biggest impact was accidental poisoning, a large proportion of these deaths are due to drug misuse; and</p><p>- small increases in mortality rates from chronic lower respiratory disease in males and females, and other causes in males (including cirrhosis and other liver diseases).</p><p> </p><p>The Government remains committed to giving people five extra years of healthy, independent life by 2035 and to ensuring that everyone gets the same great healthcare no matter where they live, backed by our Long Term Plan for the National Health Service.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Office for National Statistics data shows that for boys aged five to nine there were 137 deaths in England in the period mid-2017 to mid-2018. This is an increase of 19 deaths compared with the period mid-2016 to mid-2017, when there were 118 deaths. As the number of deaths fluctuate between individual years, a longer period must be looked at for evidence of trends. Public Health England’s review of recent trends in mortality in England, showed that there was an improvement in mortality rates for children aged five to nine between 2011 and 2016. There was also an improvement in early periods, 2001 to 2006, and 2006 to 2011.</p><p>Improving child health outcomes is central to the NHS Long Term Plan and for prioritising services for children and young people. It provides a clear focus on improving the health of children and young people across mental health, learning disabilities, cancer and elsewhere.<strong> </strong></p><p> </p> more like this
