answer text <p>The Government has a strong track record of reducing the harm caused by tobacco, based on a comprehensive approach to tobacco control, including bans on smoking in public places, and on promotion and advertising of tobacco products; high duty rates; the provision of smoking cessation services; and social marketing campaigns. The Government will maintain this comprehensive approach. The Government’s Tobacco Control Plan for England, published last year, commits to reducing smoking in 15 year olds from 8% in 2017 to 3% in 2022 and the Tobacco Control Delivery Plan, published in June 2018 sets out the various activities different agencies are taking to meet the aims of the plan.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Where a company is willing to set a fair price for a drug, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) technology appraisal process has been proven to be suitable for the assessment of drugs for rare diseases. NICE has been able to recommend a number of drugs for patients with rare diseases through its technology appraisal programme; recent examples include dinutuximab beta for neuroblastoma and daratumumab for relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma.</p><p> </p><p>With the aim of improving the lives of all those affected by a rare disease, the United Kingdom Government published the UK Strategy for Rare Diseases in 2013, a high-level framework containing 51 commitments which sets out a seven-year strategic vision (2013-2020). The Government is committed to implementing the Strategy’s commitments and has, in January 2018, published Implementation Plans setting out its actions for England.</p> more like this

answer text <p>In 2017, Professor Jane Cummings, the Chief Nursing Officer for England announced a career development programme was being developed for General Practice Nurses (GPNs). This programme took the form of an ‘action plan’ to recognise and develop the GPN role in transforming care and helping to deliver the National Health Service plan. The plan was published in 2017 and entitled The GPN 10 Point Plan. The GPN 10 Point plan uses an investment of £15 million from the GP Forward View funding allocation to support actions which will address the significant workforce challenges and support improvements in general practice nursing by 2020.</p><p> </p><p>Getting the skills mix right in general practice is critical in addressing workload pressures as well as in delivering appropriate patient care. This will mean bigger teams of staff, including nurse practitioners providing a wider range of care options for patients and freeing up more time for general practitioners to focus on those with more complex needs.</p>

Wherever these relate to a DFID programme we also expect that our partners report those to us in a timely manner. DFID’s specialist team will then provide oversight of the investigatory response to ensure it meets our standards, providing dedicated support as required.</p><p> </p><p>We urge all survivors of sexual violence in South Sudan, including aid workers, to report the harm committed against them.</p> more like this
