Clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) have the current statutory responsibility to commission high-quality services that meet the needs of their local population. Decisions about treatment should always be based on patients’ clinical needs.</ins></p><p><ins class="ministerial"> </ins></p><p><ins class="ministerial">The Secretary of State has no power to direct individual CCGs in relation to their commissioning functions. The Department has no role in the oversight of individual CCG board activities. If there are concerns about provision of care, we expect NHS England to ensure the CCG is not breaching its statutory responsibility to provide services that meet the needs of the local population. Where performance concerns are identified, NHS England has the ability to exercise formal legal powers to either provide an enhanced support to a CCG, or in rare circumstances to intervene where it is believed that a CCG is failing, or is at risk of failing, to discharge its functions.</ins></p><p><ins class="ministerial"> </ins></p><p><ins class="ministerial">NHS England has advised that the CCGs in south east London have agreed to undertake a rapid review of the NHS South East London’s Treatment Access Policy Document in relation to access criteria for funding in vitro fertilisation (IVF) by the end of November 2019. </ins></p><p><ins class="ministerial"> </ins></p><p><ins class="ministerial">The CCGs have made a public apology for any offence caused by the wording in the Treatment Access Policy Document in relation to single women’s access to IVF treatment and the review document it refers to and agree that this wording is unacceptable.

The first 630 places were taken up in September 2018 with a further 690 places available in September 2019. The remaining additional 180 places will have been made available by universities by 2020/21. By 2020, five new medical schools will have opened in England to help deliver the expansion.</p><p>Following graduation from medical school, eligible applicants are allocated a place on the United Kingdom Foundation Programme.</p><p>The number of medical specialty training places that are available each year is set by Health Education England and based on their assessment of service gaps and predicted workforce needs.</p><p>The NHS Long Term Plan set out the need to ensure a sustainable overall balance between supply and demand across all staff groups. For doctors, it also focussed on reducing geographical and specialty imbalances. Subsequently, the interim NHS People Plan set out the action we will take now and over the long term to meet the challenges of supply, reform, culture and leadership, and changes in demand for health care. Actions include reviewing what further expansion in undergraduate medical places will be needed, in light of future plans made locally by sustainability and transformation partnerships and integrated care systems; and the establishment of a national programme board to address geographic and specialty shortages in doctors.</p>

This is subject to agreement by individual EU Member States.</p><p>In a ‘no deal’ scenario, the continuation of the EHIC scheme will be dependent on the UK agreeing its continuation with individual Member States through bilateral reciprocal healthcare agreements. It is not possible for the UK Government to guarantee access unilaterally to healthcare abroad, as this depends on decisions by Member States.</p><p>The UK Government has already committed to fund healthcare for UK-insured people who have applied for, or are undergoing, treatments in the EU prior to and on exit day, for up to one year, to protect the most vulnerable.</p><p>The Government always advises UK nationals to take out comprehensive travel insurance when going overseas, both to EU and non-EU destinations. The EHIC is not an alternative to travel insurance and we have always advised that individuals should have both when travelling abroad.</p><p> </p>
