answer text <p>Protecting the mental health of our hard-working National Health Service staff is very important. That’s why the Workforce Implementation Plan, led by Baroness Harding, will outline proposals for making the NHS ‘the best place to work’. Through this, we will be supporting employers who are responsible for staff mental health by investing in an expanded programme to implement the NHS staff health and wellbeing framework launched last year.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>Two Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccines are licensed for use in the United Kingdom: M-M-RVaxPro and Priorix. Both vaccines are on the National Health Service’s routine immunisation schedule. The quality, safety and efficacy of both M-M-RVaxPro and Priorix have been evaluated before they were given a Marketing Authorisation in Europe, and the Marketing Authorisation Holder for each vaccines is legally required to submit periodic safety update reports to the regulator, which are documents intended to provide an evaluation of the risk-benefit balance of a medicinal product at defined time points after its authorisation. The sites at which the products are manufactured are also required to undergo periodic inspections to ensure that they comply with Good Manufacturing Practices. Each batch of vaccines is tested by an official medicines control laboratory (OMCL). OMCL testing is independent of and in addition to the manufacturer’s testing. These procedures ensure that the MMR vaccines available in the UK are safe and efficacious and that the manufacturers/Marketing Authorisation holders are held accountable for their products.</p><p>A European Public Assessment Report (EPAR) for M-M-RVaxPro is available at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.ema.europa.eu/en/documents/scientific-discussion/m-m-rvaxpro-epar-scientific-discussion_en.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.ema.europa.eu/en/documents/scientific-discussion/m-m-rvaxpro-epar-scientific-discussion_en.pdf</a></p><p>Priorix was approved before public assessment reports were a requirement. The EPAR for M-M-RVaxPro contains a general summary of the manufacturing information that was provided during the assessment process; however, the specific details of the manufacturing process are confidential.</p>

answer text <p>As with all vaccines and medicines, the safety of the Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine remains under continual review by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). The MHRA uses all available sources of evidence in pharmacovigilance, including regular review of suspected adverse reactions submitted through the Yellow Card Scheme, data from clinical and epidemiological studies, the medical literature and information from pharmaceutical companies and other worldwide regulatory authorities. The MHRA’s processes and data analysis systems are regularly evaluated to ensure optimal performance in monitoring the safety of vaccines and medicines.</p><p>The balance of benefits and risks of MMR vaccine remains overwhelmingly favourable.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Currently there are no restrictions that limit the administration of dermal fillers on young people under the age of 18 years old.</p><p>The Department is exploring options to introduce age restrictions on access to cosmetic procedures, bringing them in line with legislation on tattoos, teeth whitening and the use of sunbeds. From May 2020 all dermal fillers, irrespective of their composition and intended use, will be regulated as medical devices under Annex XVI of the Medical Device Regulations (EU 2017/745). The new Regulations will significantly improve the quality and safety of dermal fillers.</p><p>The Government is committed to improving the safety of cosmetic procedures through better training for practitioners, and clear information so that people can make informed decisions about their care. The growth in non-surgical treatments increases the need for consumer protection and we are currently working with stakeholders to strengthen the regulation of cosmetic procedures.</p><p>We urge anyone seeking a cosmetic procedure to take the time to find a reputable, insured and appropriately qualified practitioner who is either subject to statutory regulation or on a voluntary register accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.</p>
