star this property answer text <p>NHS England and Health Education England (HEE) are working together with the profession to increase the general practitioner (GP) workforce. This includes measures to boost recruitment, address the reasons why GPs are leaving the profession, and encourage GPs to return to practice.</p><p> </p><p>There is a broad offer available to support GPs to remain in the National Health Service including the GP Health Service, the GP Retention Scheme, and the GP Retention Fund.</p><p> </p><p>In May 2018, NHS England launched the £10 million GP Retention Fund, comprising of the Local Retention Fund (£7 million) and the Intensive Support Areas (£3 million) which will help GPs stay in the workforce by promoting new ways of working and offering additional support.</p><p> </p><p>Recognising that workload is one of the biggest issues impacting retention, NHS England is investing £30 million in the Releasing Time for Care Programme, which aims to help practices reduce their workload through spreading awareness of innovations and facilitating local programmes.</p><p> </p><p>Getting the skills mix right in general practice is also critical in addressing workload pressures as well as in delivering appropriate patient care. This will mean bigger teams of staff, providing a wider range of care options for patients and freeing up more time for GPs to focus on those with more complex needs. As of September 2018, there were over 3,700 more clinical staff, excluding GPs, working in general practice since 2015; consisting of over 600 more nurses and over 3,000 more other direct patient care.</p><p> </p><p>In addition to this work, the General Practice Partnership Review, an independent review into the partnership model to which practices work, will deliver its final report early this year. The independent review will consider key questions around workforce and workload and make a number of recommendations with the aim of ensuring general practice remains an excellent place to work.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government takes the concerns around reported avoidable sight loss very seriously. Following the All Party Parliamentary Group on Eye Health and Visual Impairment’s ‘See the Light’ report, initial meetings have been held with key stakeholders to discuss the Department and NHS England’s response to the report’s recommendations and these discussions are ongoing.</p><p> </p><p>Two key initiatives, Getting it Right First Time being led by NHS Improvement and the Elective Care Transformation Programme being led by NHS England have considered, as part of their programmes, what can be done to ensure patients do not suffer unnecessary delays in follow-up care for ophthalmology.</p><p> </p><p>Action is also being taken to reduce sight loss caused by medical conditions. On diabetic retinopathy, a common complication of diabetes which can lead to sight loss, a diabetic retinopathy screening programme led by Public Health England offered screening to 2.4 million eligible people in 2015/16.</p><p> </p><p>Early detection is also key and free National Health Service sight tests are available to those at increased risk of eye disease or likely to be deterred from seeking private tests on grounds of cost.</p>
