star this property answer text <p>There has been no current assessment of this report. The evidence is clear that income and physical and mental health outcomes are closely associated. The NHS Long Term Plan for the National Health Service, backed by an extra £33.9 billion a year in cash terms by 2023/24, puts prevention at its heart and early intervention is key. The Government is supporting this with an additional £2.3 billion a year to expand mental health services and help ensure 345,000 more children and young people under 25 receive mental health support by 2023/24. Tackling the root cause of poverty remains a priority for this Government and some families need more support. The Government is continuing to spend £95 billion a year on working-age benefits and provide free school meals to more than one million of the country’s most disadvantaged children.</p> more like this

These can include serious effects such as suicidal thoughts, psychotic reactions and behavioural disturbances. Symptoms typically emerge within a few days or weeks of starting the treatment. Patients and/or their carers should be warned by the prescribing physician that potentially severe psychiatric adverse reactions may occur with oral corticosteroids and encouraged to seek medical advice if any worrying psychological symptoms develop.</p><p>Other side effects of corticosteroids, particularly when taken long-term, include increased susceptibility to infection, disturbances of the nervous system, osteoporosis, muscle weakness, suppression of the adrenal glands, stomach ulcers and changes to the eye (glaucoma and cataract).</p><p>A detailed list of the side effects known to occur with corticosteroids is available in the product information for prescribers (the Summary of Product Characteristics and Patient Information Leaflet which are produced by the manufacturer and authorised by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) for each product. Key side effects are also detailed in the British National Formulary. As with all medicines, the safety of corticosteroids is kept under review by the MHRA and product information is updated and warnings issued when necessary.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to reducing waiting times for people of all age groups who suffer with an eating disorder. Within the NHS Long Term Plan ambitions, the Clinical Review of NHS Access Standards aims to “test four-week waiting times for adult and older adult community mental health teams, with selected local areas”. This will form part of wider testing of the new and integrated models of primary and community mental health care.</p><p>The recently-published ‘Guidance for operational and activity plans: assurance statements’, to accompany the NHS Planning Guidance for 2019/20, makes clear that these new models will include services for adults with eating disorders.</p><p>In 2019-20, NHS England will begin funding a number of pilot sites for these new models across the country, including services for adults with eating disorders. Selected sites will work towards maximising access and minimising waits to improve patient care. Sites will be selected within regions over the coming months and will be given pump prime funding.</p><p>In parallel to this, NHS England is rolling out the New Care Models in Mental Health programme, delegating specialised commissioning budgets for adult eating disorder inpatient services to provider collaboratives. These collaboratives will have the power to transform pathways of care and maximise access to dedicated community-based provision to avoid need for admissions as far as possible, building on the success of pilot sites where this work is already underway.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department is committing increased expenditure to support the provision of mental health services in the community, to reduce the need for children to be admitted to mental health hospitals unless absolutely necessary.</p><p>Through the NHS Long Term Plan, published in January 2019, mental health funding will grow by at least £2.3 billion a year by 2023/24, with funding for children and young people’s mental health services growing faster than both overall National Health Service funding and total mental health spending. This extra investment will mean an extra 345,000 children and young people aged 0-25 will receive mental health support by 2023/24.</p><p>The key proposals in ‘Transforming children and young people’s mental health provision: a green paper’ aim to improve early intervention. New mental health support teams will deliver evidence-based interventions in or close to schools and colleges for those with mild to moderate mental health issues in 25 trailblazer areas in England. 12 of the 25 trailblazer sites will pilot a four-week waiting time to speed up children and young people’s access to NHS mental health services.</p><p>Over the next five years, the NHS will therefore continue to invest in expanding access to community-based mental health services to meet the needs of more children and young people.</p><p>The NHS Long Term Plan prioritises services for children and young people, providing a clear focus on improving the health and wellbeing of children and young people with learning disabilities and/or autism, as well as committing to implementing ‘Building the right support’ in full, achieving at least a 50% reduction in the number of people with a learning disability or autism who are inpatients, compared to the figure in 2015, by the end of 2023/24.</p><p>The Long Term Plan sets out specific commitments to achieve this by developing new models of care to provide care closer to home and investing in intensive, crisis and forensic community support. By 2023/24 children and young people with a learning disability, autism or both with the most complex needs will also have a designated keyworker. These will be initially provided to children and young people who are inpatients or at risk of being admitted to hospital.</p><p>Furthermore, the Government is committed to reviewing mental health legislation so that it works better for both adults and children. We are currently considering the findings from the independent review of the Mental Health Act 1983, which covers how a person can be detained or sectioned for treatment and will respond in due course.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>As with all medicines in the United Kingdom, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency continuously monitors the safety of isotretinoin-containing medicines. This includes reports of suspected adverse drug reactions submitted by healthcare professionals, patients and carers through the Yellow Card scheme, as well as published and unpublished data. As new evidence on safety emerges it is carefully evaluated and, where appropriate, product information is updated and advice for prescribers and patients is issued.</p><p>Specific assessments of possible psychiatric side effects associated with isotretinoin were considered by an Expert Working Group of the Commission on Human Medicines in 2005 and 2014. In addition, the risk of neuropsychiatric disorders was evaluated in a European review which was completed in 2018. This review concluded that the warnings in the product information for medicines containing isotretinoin regarding possible psychiatric adverse effects reflected what was known.</p><p>Since 1998, warnings regarding the possible risk of developing depression and other psychiatric side effects have been included in the product information for Roaccutane and the generic versions of isotretinoin (the Summary of Product Characteristics for healthcare professionals and the patient information leaflet). The product information for isotretinoin warns that treatment may be associated with possible psychiatric side effects, that particular care needs to be taken in patients with a history of depression; and that all patients on isotretinoin should be monitored for signs of depression and referred for appropriate treatment if necessary. It also states that stopping isotretinoin may not lead to improvement and therefore further psychiatric or psychological evaluation may be necessary.</p>
