star this property answer text <p>The department is committed to ensuring claimants receive high quality assessments. We set our assessment providers challenging targets and monitor performance closely against a range of measures including through independent audit to improve accuracy and decision making. Contractual remedies are in place if assessment providers fail to deliver against the service standards.</p><p>Contractual remedies for underperformance against a range of service levels are recovered through service credit mechanisms and through deductions of payments (a ‘No Pay’ mechanism). The extent of underperformance and application of related mechanisms varies significantly and the regularity of such remedies should not be seen as a measure of overall performance.</p><p>In relation to the HDAS contract covering Work Capability Assessments, service credits (the contractual remedy for SC1 – Quality) have been applied in 12 out of the 14 months from June 2018 to July 2019 (the date of the most recent statistical information available).</p><p>In relation to the Personal Independence Payment contracts, “No Pay” (the contractual remedy for SC1 – Quality) has been applied in one or more Lots in each month from June 18 to June 19 (the date of the most recent statistical information available).</p><p>Below is the breakdown of the totals by Lot:</p><p>Lot 1 – No pay was applied to SC1 in 8 of those months</p><p>Lot 2 – No pay was applied to SC1 in 5 of those months</p><p>Lot 3 – No pay was applied to SC1 in 11 of those months.</p>

star this property answer text <p>At its meeting in February 2014, the Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee (PRAC) of the European Medicines Agency recommended that the product information for mefloquine (Lariam) be amended to state that neuropsychiatric adverse reactions may persist for months, or longer, even after discontinuation of the drug. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) accepted the recommendations and implemented the advice of the PRAC, which is reflected in the United Kingdom product information for mefloquine. In addition, the MHRA has since taken further action to ensure that these risks are adequately conveyed to UK prescribers and patients in the form of improved checklists for healthcare professionals and a patient alert card.</p> more like this
