This included 94 full time equivalent additional histopathologists to support an increase in the capacity for earlier diagnosis. Following the commitment to lower the bowel screening age to 50 and roll out the Faecal Immunology Test, HEE has been engaging with stakeholders to ensure that the cancer workforce, including histopathologists, is sufficient for future cancer services.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Public Health England produced advice for organisations to create vaping policies that are right for them. The advice included the following five principles; to make clear the distinction between vaping and smoking; to ensure policies are informed by the evidence on health risks to bystanders; to identify and manage risks of uptake by children and young people; to support smokers to stop smoking and stay smoke free; and, to support compliance with smokefree law and policy. The guidance was shared with stakeholders when published, and the documents are available to view at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/use-of-e-cigarettes-in-public-places-and-workplaces" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/use-of-e-cigarettes-in-public-places-and-workplaces</a></p><p> </p><p>Using this advice, organisations can decide whether they will allow vaping indoors.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Department has made no assessment. Ultimately it is for clinical commissioning groups, who are primarily responsible for commissioning diabetes services, to meet the requirements of their population. In doing so, they need to ensure that the services they provide are fit for purpose, reflect the needs of the local population, including young people, are based on the available evidence and take into account national guidelines.</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>

answer text <p>Under the terms of their contracts, as set out in National Health Service (General Medical Services (GMS) Contracts) and (Personal Medical Services (PMS) Agreements) Regulations 2015), general practitioners (GPs) must provide medical certificates to prove incapacity to work free of charge and cannot charge their registered patients for anything other than specific items as set out in the PMS Regulations. This includes some letters and medical reports, such as private sick notes or immunisations in connection with travel abroad.</p><p> </p><p>GPs must provide these statements of incapacity to professionals working for the Health Assessment Advisory Service (part of the Department for Work and Pensions) when requested. If other statutory bodies are requesting this information to support a benefits claim, GPs are entitled to charge for this information, but the body requesting it must pay this charge rather than the patient.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The NHS Long Term Plan provides an excellent opportunity to look at how cancer and other services can be further improved over the next decade. The plan is currently in development and will be published later in the year.</p><p> </p><p>The independent Cancer Taskforce identified establishing patient experience on a par with clinical effectiveness and safety and transforming our approach to support people living with and beyond cancer as strategic priorities in the report ‘Achieving World-class Cancer Outcomes: A Strategy for England, 2015-2020’. In December 2016, NHS England announced a fund of over £200 million available to Cancer Alliances over the next two years, specifically to support those areas of the strategy that they estimated would need significant investment, including to help patients living with and beyond cancer.</p><p> </p><p>As part of that programme of work, the Recovery Package is being commissioned and delivered in full or in part by many clinical commissioning groups and providers across England. NHS England’s aim is to accelerate the process to ensure full implementation by 2020 so the package will be available to all cancer patients across the country regardless of location. Alongside this, NHS England is building up a picture of current provision to help target future work to support rollout.</p>
