star this property answer text <p>No assessment has been made on the prevalence of National Health Service treatment for back pain. In the instance that back pain continues, or is caused by a pre-existing medical condition, treatment will be provided in line with the existing guidance. The vast majority of people are successfully managed by their general practitioner (GP) or via community services.</p><p>The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance ‘Low back pain and sciatica in over 16s: assessment and management’, published in 2016 set out evidence based best practice in the management of the condition. The guidance includes advice on pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches to care. The guidance can be viewed at the following link:</p><p><a href="http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng59" target="_blank">www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng59</a></p><p>As set out in the NHS Long Term Plan, musculoskeletal conditions are responsible for a substantial amount of poor health, and NHS England has committed to expand on work already undertaken to ensure patients will have direct access to musculoskeletal first contact practitioners (FCPs). 98% of sustainability and transformation partnerships have confirmed pilot sites for FCPs and 55% of pilots are already underway. This will expand the number of physiotherapists working in primary care networks, enabling people to see the right professional first time, without needing a GP referral.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Branch closures can be difficult for the communities affected and the Government pays close attention to this issue. However, the decision to close a branch is a commercial one for a firm, and Government does not intervene in those decisions.</p><p> </p><p>However, the Government is equally clear that as banking providers seek to respond to technological advances and changes in customer behaviour, they must also consider carefully the needs of those who still rely on their local bank branch. Since May 2017, the major high street banks have been signed up to the Access to Banking Standard, which commits them to work with customers and communities to minimise the impact of branch closures and put in place alternative banking services.</p><p> </p><p>The Government also supports the Post Office Banking Framework Agreement which enables 99% of the UK’s personal and 95% of the UK’s small business customers to withdraw money, deposit cash and cheques and check balances at any one of the Post Office’s network of 11,500 branches.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>While banks do have to comply with competition law, there is no specific regulation that prevents banks from sharing branches or other premises where their strategies align. The Government therefore has no plans to update competition law on this basis. Government does not intervene in these commercial decisions, but will continue to encourage banks to think creatively about how they can ensure that consumers can access a wide range of banking services on a sustainable basis. For example, NatWest, Lloyds Bank and Barclays are trialling shared business banking hubs in 6 locations across the UK in the coming weeks.</p>
