Advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation is that there may be considerable benefit in offering the HPV to other individuals who have a similar risk profile to that of the men who have sex with men (MSM) population attending Specialist Sexual Health Services and/or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) clinics. This wider range includes some MSM aged over 45 years, sex workers, HIV positive women, and HIV positive men.</p><p> </p><p>Clinicians are able to offer vaccinations outside of the national programme using individual clinical judgement, and HPV vaccination could therefore be considered for such individuals on a case-by-case basis.</p> more like this

The FCA then announced a package of remedies in February 2018, including: giving customers more control over credit limits; encouraging customers to repay more quickly; earlier identification of customers at risk of financial difficulty; and, help for customers in persistent debt, with escalating measures at 18, 28, and 36 months.</p><p> </p><p>The government welcomes the FCA’s remedies to tackle persistent debt in the credit card market, and will continue to work closely with the FCA to ensure all customers are treated fairly.</p>
