answer text <p>No specific assessment of the implications of the recent Red Cross research – <em>Don’t Stop at 999 </em>has been made. However, it is recognised the timely application of first aid can help minimise the impact of injuries, as well as health conditions such as heart attacks and strokes, and contribute to avoiding preventable deaths.</p><p> </p><p>The NHS Choices website contains information for the public on first aid responses to various injuries and health incidents. In addition, the Government is making available another £1 million to make public access defibrillators and coronary pulmonary resuscitation training more widely available in communities across England. This builds on last year’s funding of £1 million, which provided almost 700 more publicly accessible defibrillators in communities across England and increased the numbers of people trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation.</p><p> </p><p>The national <em>Act Fast </em>campaign also aims to raise awareness of the symptoms of stroke, teach people what to look out for in themselves and others, and encourage those who notice the symptoms to call 999. Since <em>Act Fast</em> launched in 2009, it is estimated that an additional 47,000 people reached hospital within the vital three-hour window and over 5,000 fewer people became disabled as a result of a stroke.</p><p> </p><p>Local authorities in England have the lead responsibility for identifying and meeting needs for local interventions to improve the health of their populations.</p>

answer text <p>The new congenital heart disease (CHD) standards were approved by the NHS England Board in July 2015. The paper which NHS England’s CHD review team submitted to the Board at that time set out that:</p><p> </p><p>“We found no published evidence on the effects of proximity of other services so the proposed standards are based on expert opinion. Our clinical advisers strongly advocated co-location with other paediatric services, though they recognised that not everyone agrees. They considered that while responsiveness was one important factor, it was not the only thing that mattered. Delivering these services effectively requires the input of the wider paediatric multidisciplinary team, and the interaction between these teams on a daily basis, when co-located, is considered to be of significant benefit to patients.”</p><p> </p><p>The full paper can be found on NHS England’s website at:</p><p><a href="https://www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/Item-4-CHD-Report.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/Item-4-CHD-Report.pdf</a></p>
