star this property answer text <p>On Sunday 29 September, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care announced the next stage in our strategic investment in the National Health Service, with the Health Infrastructure Plan (HIP) to ensure that our health infrastructure is fit-for-purpose for decades to come. The Prime Minister set out on Wednesday 2 October his plan that “in the next ten years we will build 40 new hospitals in the biggest investment in hospital infrastructure for a generation.” As a step towards this, we have committed funding for six new hospitals as well as seed funding to support the initial stage of a further 34 building projects.</p><p>North Manchester General Hospital scheme is one of the projects that are green-lighted to proceed to the next level of their development plan. A total pot of £100 million of seed money is being made available to help kick start the next stage of developing these plans. All schemes however will need to present a clear investment case to move onto the next stage, and funding will be subject to future spending reviews. Other projects will be able to bid into this and other future waves too.</p>

These plans include proposals for assisting trusts, including allowing some access to early funding and streamlining the business case process.</p><p>As part of our rolling investment programme, we have confirmed that there will be future phases of the Health Infrastructure Plan, with opportunities for the NHS to put forward further new hospital projects for the next phases of the programme. We also recognise that there may some more schemes suitable for investments that are not currently part of HIP1 and HIP2. These should continue developing their plans and priorities for local NHS infrastructure, and where exceptionally strong schemes come to light before HIP3, we will consider these in the context of available funding.</p>

These case studies sit alongside widely published evidence which has been proven to deliver improvements in uptake. We expect these actions to have a positive impact on the uptake of screening.</p><p>Sir Mike Richards’ Review of Screening report is due to be published shortly which will identify additional opportunities to improve the uptake of breast, bowel, and cervical screening. In addition, NHSX is looking at possible improvements to screening IT systems, which should support the delivery of cancer screening programmes.</p>

star this property answer text <p>NHS England is committed to improving the uptake of national cancer screening programmes, for breast, bowel, and cervical cancer.</p><p>In January, NHS England published its Long Term Plan, which outlined its ambition to deliver improvements in the uptake of national cancer screening programmes. To support this process, NHS England has developed improving uptake action plans, which can be used by providers and the wider health system, to improve the performance of screening programmes.</p><p>The uptake action plans include proposals for reviewing and extending appointment hours (for example for breast cancer screening) and using data to inform strategies for improving uptake in those populations of greatest need. These plans are already available to commissioning teams and will be updated and reissued throughout the year.</p><p>National Health Service regions are currently developing implementation plans to deliver on these commitments. To provide robust oversight and assurance of delivery, NHS England has established national programme boards for each cancer screening programme area.</p><p>In addition, we expect the Sir Mike Richards’ Review of Screening report, due to be published soon, to identify additional opportunities to improve the uptake of breast, bowel, and cervical screening.</p><p>Further, Public Health England has been running ‘Be Clear on Cancer’ campaigns since 2011. These are designed to raise the public’s awareness of specific cancer symptoms; encourage people with those symptoms to go to the doctor; and diagnose cancer at an earlier stage, and therefore make it more treatable, and thereby improve cancer survival rates.</p>
