star this property answer text <p>Publication of the Implementation Framework begins the process of strategic system planning. System plans for delivery through to 2023/24 are required, with an initial submission in September 2019 and a final submission to follow by mid November 2019. Plans should fully align across the organisations within each system so that they can subsequently be translated into organisational plans for 2020/21, which will be required in early 2020.</p><p> </p><p>The NHS Long Term Plan states that by March 2023/24, inpatient provision will have reduced to less than half of 2015 levels and, for every one million adults, there will be no more than 30 people with a learning disability and/or autism cared for in an inpatient unit. For children and young people, no more than 12 to 15 children with a learning disability, autism or both per million, will be cared for in an inpatient facility.</p><p> </p><p>At a local level, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) are expected to reduce inappropriate hospitalisation of people with a learning disability, autism or both to meet these targets. The targets are for people for a learning disability, autism or both as a whole and do not differentiate between individual groups of patients (other than by age). The target rates expressed in the Long Term Plan are based on the Office for National Statistics mid-year population estimates for 2017 and translate into different inpatient counts in each CCG dependent on the size of the local population. Areas with larger populations will therefore have higher inpatient targets than those with smaller populations.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Publication of the Implementation Framework begins the process of strategic system planning. System plans for delivery through to 2023/24 are required, with an initial submission in September 2019 and a final submission to follow by mid November 2019. Plans should fully align across the organisations within each system so that they can subsequently be translated into organisational plans for 2020/21, which will be required in early 2020.</p><p> </p><p>The NHS Long Term Plan states that by March 2023/24, inpatient provision will have reduced to less than half of 2015 levels and, for every one million adults, there will be no more than 30 people with a learning disability and/or autism cared for in an inpatient unit. For children and young people, no more than 12 to 15 children with a learning disability, autism or both per million, will be cared for in an inpatient facility.</p><p> </p><p>At a local level, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) are expected to reduce inappropriate hospitalisation of people with a learning disability, autism or both to meet these targets. The targets are for people for a learning disability, autism or both as a whole and do not differentiate between individual groups of patients (other than by age). The target rates expressed in the Long Term Plan are based on the Office for National Statistics mid-year population estimates for 2017 and translate into different inpatient counts in each CCG dependent on the size of the local population. Areas with larger populations will therefore have higher inpatient targets than those with smaller populations.</p>

This work includes looking to identify best practice and examples of innovation, which have improved outcomes for people with ADHD, so that these can be widely disseminated to commissioners to improve local practice.

This requirement applies from the outset and for the duration of the tenancy.</p><p>This Department has not made a specific assessment of the implications for properties that are smaller than 13 square metres in relation to the Homes Act. The courts will decide whether a property is fit for human habitation by considering the matters set out in section 10 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985, which includes the ‘overcrowding’ hazard prescribed in the Housing Health and Safety (England) Regulations 2005. Each property is assessed on its own merits, and if a property is so small as to be hazardously overcrowded, tenants will have the right to take action in the courts for breach of contract on the grounds that the property is unfit for human habitation.</p><p>Government is also reviewing the hazards set out in the 2005 Regulations as part of the comprehensive review of the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS).</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Treasury Ministers and officials have meetings with a wide variety of organisations in the public and private sectors, including banks and other financial institutions, as part of the process of policy development and delivery. Details of ministerial and permanent secretary meetings with external organisations on departmental business are published on a quarterly basis and are available at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/hmt-ministers-meetings-hospitality-gifts-and-overseas-travel" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/hmt-ministers-meetings-hospitality-gifts-and-overseas-travel</a>.</p>Interest rates on savings accounts are set by the institution providing the account. As this is a commercial decision, the Government does not seek to intervene. If a customer is not content with the interest rate they receive, Government encourages them to shop around to find the best savings account for their needs.<p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The median clearance time from registration to DWP decision for Personal Independence Payment claims cleared under normal rules from 1<sup>st</sup> May 2018 – 30<sup>th</sup> April 2019, the latest 12-month period for which data is available is 100 calendar days, which is approximately 14 weeks. The median clearance time for claims decided in April 2019 was 13 weeks, down by over two thirds since July 2014.</p><p> </p><p>Source: PIP ADS</p><p> </p><p><strong>Notes:</strong></p><ul><li>The status of claims as 'normal rules' is shown as at the DWP decision. It is possible for claims to transition between normal/special rules during the course of the claimant journey.</li><li>The 'Registration to DWP decision (end to end)' clearance time is measured as the average time between the date of registration of the claim and the date of the DWP decision to either award or disallow the claim. It does not include claims that were withdrawn by the claimant or claims that were disallowed by DWP pre-referral to the Assessment Providers (e.g. for failure to meet basic eligibility criteria or failure to return the Part 2 form within the time limit).</li><li>The median time is the middle value if you were to order all the times within the distribution from lowest value to highest value. The median is presented here instead of the mean because the mean can be unduly affected by outlying cases (e.g. cases were the person has been hard to reach due to being in prison, hospital, failed to attend the assessment on numerous occasions etc.)</li><li>Great Britain only.</li><li>This is unpublished data. It should be used with caution and it may be subject to future revision.</li><li>The median clearance time is rounded to the nearest whole day.</li></ul>
