answer text <p>The Equality Act 2010 contains provisions that allow religious organisations to apply a limited range of religious occupational requirements to comply with the doctrines of the religion or to avoid conflicting with the strongly held religious beliefs of a significant number of the religion’s followers. The ability to apply religious occupational requirements arises where the employment is “for the purposes of an organised religion” and is not specific to the Church of England.</p><p>The Church of England has regular discussions with other religious and faith bodies, with HM Government, and with the Equality and Human Rights Commission on matters of mutual interest. From time to time these will include reflections on the importance for religious freedom of the provisions that protect faith and belief in the Equality Act.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Department is in regular contact with the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and NHS England colleagues about a range of issues and has not met with drug manufacturers on funding of licensed cannabis-based products.</p><p>Sativex is currently the only licensed cannabis-based product available in the United Kingdom. NICE considered the clinical and cost effectiveness of Sativex in the development of its clinical guideline on the management of multiple sclerosis published in 2014. NICE was not able to recommend Sativex as a cost-effective use of NHS resources for the treatment of spasticity in people with multiple sclerosis. Sativex is not therefore routinely funded by the NHS in England for use in the treatment of multiple sclerosis, although clinicians are able to make a request for exceptional funding for individual patients who they think may benefit from treatment.</p><p>NICE has been asked to develop clinical guidelines on cannabis-based products for medicinal use and is expected to look at the clinical and cost effectiveness of treatments, including Sativex, as part of this work. This is expected to be published by October 2019.</p>

answer text <p>In line with routine clinical practice patients wishing to seek a second opinion will be supported to do so. In the first instance clinicians should refer patients for a second opinion using their established protocols. If it is not possible to obtain a second or further opinion using established protocols then National Health Service trusts are instructed to contact their NHS England Regional Medical Director who will be able to offer further advice around a referral route. The NHS England Regional Medical Directors will support NHS trusts in identifying a suitable NHS specialist for a second opinion. Processes may differ in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.</p> more like this
