answer text <p>The Medical Research Council is currently funding a study of adolescent anorexia nervosa patients with autism spectrum disorder symptoms: ‘The Triple A study (Adolescents with Anorexia and Autism): A search for biomarkers’. The research aims to identify vulnerable patients, at an early stage, who may be unlikely to respond to current treatment for anorexia, with the longer-term aim of shaping individualised support and treatment strategies. The study is led by King's College London and is due to conclude next year.</p> more like this

answer text <p>In England local authorities (LAs) are responsible for assessing the oral health needs of their local population, developing oral health strategies and commissioning oral health improvement programmes to meet the needs of their local population.</p><p> </p><p>In May 2018 Public Health England (PHE) published a stocktake which reported on oral health improvement programmes, commissioned by local authorities targeting children under five years old in England. Of the 95% of LAs who responded, the majority are commissioning oral health improvement programmes for under-fives. The stocktake can be viewed at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/707180/Oral_health_improvement_programmes_commissioned_by_local_authorities.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/707180/Oral_health_improvement_programmes_commissioned_by_local_authorities.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p>NHS England has launched ‘Starting Well: A Smile4Life Initiative’. This programme of dental practice-based initiatives aims to reduce oral health inequalities and improve oral health in children under the age of five. The programme has been launched in 13 high priority areas chosen on the basis of decay experience at a LA level and existing oral health improvement plans.</p>

answer text <p>The Department and entities within its accounting boundary report on the basis of European Union Adopted International Financial Reporting Standards as interpreted and adapted for the public sector by HM Treasury’s Financial Reporting Manual.</p><p> </p><p>Debt is not a specific classification of liability that is reported by entities including National Health Service foundation trusts.</p><p> </p><p>To provide a total liability amount for NHS foundation trusts, either current and payable within 12 months or non-current and due to be settled beyond 12 months from the end of the financial year, would therefore include items which the Department would not expect to be viewed as debt.</p><p> </p><p>For this reason, the Department has interpreted the term ‘debt’ to refer to outstanding balances on loans both with the Department and with Other Entities. The attached table identifies the total level of loans outstanding for NHS foundation trusts as at 31 March 2018, on a current and non-current basis.</p><p> </p><p>Loans held with the Department are eliminated on consolidation to arrive at the Group’s Consolidated Statement of Financial Position. As part of presenting a consolidated set of accounts, all intra group activity (including income, expenditure, assets and liabilities generated by intra group trading) is eliminated, so as to not overstate the Group position. For individual NHS foundation trusts these loans with the Department represent a debt, but this is not the case in regards to the Group position presented in the Department’s Annual Report and Accounts as balances held and transactions related to the loans held are eliminated.</p>
