star this property answer text <p>We have noted the report published by the British Society of Rheumatology. The challenges they highlight are why part of the NHS Long Term Plan’s mission is to make the National Health Service a world class employer and deliver the workforce the NHS needs. To deliver on these commitments the NHS published a new interim People Plan on 3 June that set out a shared vision and plan of action to put NHS people at the heart of NHS policy and delivery. The interim People Plan sets out the action the NHS will take now and over the long term to meet the challenges of supply, reform, culture and leadership.</p><p>Individual NHS employers are responsible for training the right number of rheumatology specialist nurses, based on the needs of the population they serve. Health Education England works with NHS employers to support the development of registered nurses so they can fill these specialist roles.</p><p>A programme of work is underway at Health Education England to develop an Advanced Clinical Practice framework that will allow health professionals to develop their careers and learn specialist skills, such as in rheumatology. Organisations are being supported to understand this level of practice and how they can develop and support their workforce into Advanced Clinical Practice level roles.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government has not included any requirement in its Mandate to Health Education England (HEE) with regards to promoting rheumatology training.</p><p>Undergraduate medical students and foundation doctors receive career guidance throughout their training to help them in their choice of subsequent career speciality. This enables them to consider what they would be best suited to and what career opportunities exist within the National Health Service. This includes career fairs, which may be meetings or virtual, when colleges and societies are available to give more detail on the own specialties. For rheumatology this will include the British Association of Rheumatology.</p><p>HEE manages the recruitment process for postgraduate training programmes in medicine. In 2018, 100% of the 50 rheumatology specialty training posts available were filled. The number of training posts appointed to is agreed each year in balance with all the other training posts required. These include training posts in general practice, where most rheumatological conditions are managed primarily or jointly in primary care settings.</p><p>Healthcare education, training and recruitment in Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland is a matter for the devolved administrations in each nation.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In terms of promoting self-care, community pharmacy contractors are already obliged by the community pharmacy contractual framework to provide advice and support to enable people to derive maximum benefit from caring for themselves or their families. NHS England and Improvement have been running the Help Us to Help You campaigns which educate the public on the ability of community pharmacies to help the public and patients with their needs relating to self-care and minor illness.</p><p>In 2016, Public Health England (PHE) introduced profession-led self-assessment for attainment of healthy living pharmacy (HLP) level 1 status. This was followed by the introduction of a quality payment for HLP level 1 status attainment. As a result, there has been an increase in the numbers achieving HLP status. There are now more than 9,500 community pharmacies already accredited as HLPs, each with qualified health champions promoting health and wellbeing messages, helping to prevent people from becoming ill and maintaining the health of those that are already ill in their communities.</p><p>PHE is developing an HLP framework for commissioners which can be used when commissioning public health services to ensure consistency of delivery across the country, due to be published in spring 2020. These services help to further increase the role of community pharmacy in prevention and improving health.</p><p>In terms of community pharmacies as a first point of contact, the HLP initiative is also relevant.‎ In addition, since December 2017, NHS England and NHS Improvement has been piloting the Digital Minor Illness Referral Service. This is a service that allows referrals from NHS 111 to community pharmacies for advice and support for minor illnesses and health concerns. The outcome for the patient, if they attend the pharmacy for a consultation with the pharmacist, may be either to receive advice alone or advice with access to medicines through a private sale of an over the counter medicine or potentially a medicine supply through a locally commissioned minor ailment scheme. In November 2018, the pilot was expanded to include London, Devon and the East Midlands., in addition to the North East.</p><p>Since 2016, the NHS Medicines Supply Advanced Service has been piloted. This is service manages a referral from NHS 111 to a community pharmacy where a patient has contacted NHS 111 because they need urgent access to a medicine or appliance that they have been previously prescribed on a National Health Service prescription.</p><p>Furthermore, the Department, with NHS England and NHS Improvement, has now begun negotiations with the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee to determine the new Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework for 2019/20 and beyond. These are confidential negotiations and as such we are unable to provide further detail at this time.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>
