star this property answer text <p>New European Union Regulations for medical devices (MDR) entered into force in May 2017 and will fully apply from May 2020.</p><p>The new Regulations substantially strengthen the regulatory framework for medical devices and notified bodies are having to make significant changes to meet the enhanced requirements. These changes have the aim of improving the quality, consistency and rigour of notified body assessments, which was one of the Government’s key aims for the new legislation.</p><p>Ministers have met with and received letters from industry representatives who have raised concerns about capacity in the notified body sector across the EU to support the implementation of the MDR. The Government recognises the importance of having competent notified bodies across the EU in place in sufficient time to ensure continuity of supply of products to the United Kingdom market.</p><p>For this reason, at the Employment, Social Policy, Health and Consumer Affairs (EPSCO) Council on 14 June, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State (Baroness Blackwood of North Oxford) raised the Government’s concerns about the readiness of critical infrastructure required to implement the MDR and the risk that some existing and new to market products will not be available to patients as a result.</p><p>We very much recognise the benefits of the new Regulations and the imperative of full implementation as soon as possible in the interests of patient safety. Therefore, at EPSCO the Government emphasised the importance of finding a coordinated solution at an EU level and we will continue to do what we can to influence these discussions.</p><p>In parallel with this activity, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has been engaging with its notified bodies on an ongoing basis to ensure that sufficient resources are in place and notified bodies are prepared for the implementation of the new EU legislation. The MHRA is also offering a substantial amount of resource to the EU in order to support and expedite the designation process.</p><p>Through the Office for Life Sciences, the Government plans to work with stakeholders to come to a shared understanding of the issues and discuss what further mitigating action could be taken. Further engagement with industry will therefore take place in the short term.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is listening to concerns raised by doctors that pension tax charges are driving decisions to retire early or limit their National Health Service commitments, and has incorporated the views of the British Medical Association (BMA) and other key stakeholders into the consultation ‘NHS Pension Scheme: proposed flexibility’.</p><p>The consultation sets out a potential 50:50 option, offering 50% pension accrual and halved contributions. As part of the five-year general practitioner contract announced earlier this year, the BMA and NHS England asked the Government to consider introducing a 50:50 option as an appropriate flexibility, and the BMA have welcomed this as a step in the right direction.</p><p>The consultation period is an opportunity to listen to a range of views before reaching a final position that works for both staff and taxpayers. The Department encourages NHS staff and employers to contribute their views.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Time Off in Lieu (TOIL) is agreed locally, subject to business needs and line manager approval. The Department does not hold centrally managed records of TOIL for the period in question. TOIL forms just one of the options where conditioned hours are exceeded; those who use the flexi system can choose to credit hours under this policy, and overtime may be paid where agreed in advance with line management.</p><p>The Department ensures that the requirements of the Working Time Regulations of 1998 as regards civil service working hours are adhered to and has a commitment to the well-being of our staff which aims to ensure that everyone has a good work/life balance. We want to create a working environment that allows people to flourish and thrive through positive, supportive relationships which recognise the importance of individual wellbeing, and how this may be affected by working patterns and practices. The commitment of our Senior Civil Service cadre to the wellbeing of their staff is demonstrated by the fact that 85 per cent have completed the Wellbeing Confident Leadership Training.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The circumstances we are born in to and the conditions in which we live all have a major bearing on our health and wellbeing. The Government remains committed to tackling poverty so that we can make a lasting difference to long-term outcomes. There is clear evidence about the importance of work in tackling poverty now and in the future. Households where all adults are in work are around six times less likely to be in relative poverty than adults in a household where nobody works. The Government has lifted 400,000 people out of absolute poverty since 2010 and the number of people in employment has increased by over 3.7 million, there are around one million fewer workless households and around 667,000 fewer children in such households.</p> more like this

It has delivered training on the steps to be taken, where there is a reason to believe that a suspect or defendant in a criminal case might be a victim. In those circumstances, the prosecutor will consider what further evidence or information might be required and will review whether the prosecution should proceed or not. The guidance sets out that where there is sufficient evidence that the accused is a victim and the conditions provided for in section 45 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 are met, the case should not be charged or proceeded with.</p> more like this
