star this property answer text <p>As a Government Major Project, the 100,000 Genomes Project has been under regular review by the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) which provides independent assurance of the most complex and strategically significant projects across Government. As part of this, the 100,000 Genomes Project has undergone several significant reviews which considered the Project’s delivery, requiring the collation of extensive documentation evidencing the progress of the Project and several days of interviews with key stakeholders. Conclusions of each review were shared across delivery partners to inform successful delivery of the Project.</p><p>The Department, Genomics England and NHS England recognised the importance in embedding robust testing, assessment and evaluation throughout the delivery of the Project to inform the introduction of whole genome sequencing in the National Health Service under the new Genomics Medicine Service.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text The Government has pledged to continue to commit the same cash total in funds for farm support until the end of the parliament. It has also set out its plans for English agriculture policy after we have left the EU, including phasing down direct payments from 2021 over seven years. Agriculture is a devolved matter, so it is for the Welsh Government to decide whether to continue with direct payments in Wales. We will continue to engage with the Welsh Government on arrangements for domestic replacement funding after 2022, but have already committed not to simply apply the Barnett Formula to agriculture funding in England. This means that funding will not just be allocated according to the population of each nation. more like this

On agriculture funding, the Government has committed to provide the same cash total in funds for farm support until the end of the Parliament. Under this commitment, the average annual cash total for farm support under the existing 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework, and the average annual Exchequer funding provided for farm support under Pillar 2, will be rolled forward year by year until the end of this parliament. An independent advisory panel, led by Lord Bew of Donegore, is considering what factors should determine the distribution of convergence funding across the UK during this period.

In the United Kingdom, investment includes £32 million of capital funding to support AMR research, £19.1 million for AMR research at four NIHR Biomedical Research Centres, and £8.8 million for two NIHR Health Protection Research Units on Healthcare Associated Infections and Antimicrobial Resistance.</p><p>The NIHR also supports research into AMR in low and middle-income countries (LMICs), with official development assistance (ODA) funding through the NIHR Global Health Research programme. Investment includes support for the NIHR Global Health Research Unit on Genomic Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance, and the NIHR Global Health Research Group on Genomic Surveillance of Malaria in West Africa.</p><p>Working through partnerships with other UK funders, the NIHR Global Health Research programme also supports cross-Research Council initiatives including one led by the Medical Research Council for research into AMR in a global context, and another led by the Economic and Social Research Council to expand understanding of how behaviour within and beyond the healthcare system impacts on AMR.</p><p>In addition, the Department has allocated over £50 million of ODA over five years to AMR research through the Global AMR Innovation Fund. This research is delivered through a range of mechanisms and delivery partners, including research councils such as the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council and Innovate UK, and international partners including the Wellcome Trust, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the United States and German governments, and Canada’s International Development Research Centre.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Sustainability and transformation partnerships (STPs) and integrated care systems (ICS) are fundamentally about bringing National Health Service providers, commissioners, local authorities, and other health and care services together to propose how they, at local level, can improve the way that health and care is planned and delivered in a more person-centred and coordinated way.</p><p>The most developed STPs have evolved into ICS, an even closer partnership between NHS organisations, local councils and other relevant organisations, which take collective responsibility for managing resources, delivering NHS standards, and improving the health of the population they serve.</p><p>The NHS Long Term Plan set out the ambition for ICS to cover the whole of England by April 2021. The NHS Long Term Plan sets out that “every ICS will need streamlined commissioning arrangements to enable a single set of commissioning decisions at system level. This will typically involve a single Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) for each ICS area”. However, this will need to reflect local circumstances, and NHS England is not intending to impose this centrally. NHS England is working with ICS and local areas to determine the best configuration of CCGs.</p><p>CCGs have a legal right to apply for a merger and it is for NHS England to decide whether to approve a merger. This is an operational decision, and so sits with NHS England. There are a number of specific legal factors and further criteria that NHS England will consider when deciding whether to agree the merger. The application process and criteria applied for CCG mergers is available in the Procedures for clinical commissioning groups to apply for constitution change, merger or dissolution guidance.</p><p>The criteria include the proposed new CCG demonstrating alignment with (or within) the local STP/ICS to provide the most logical footprint for local implementation of the NHS Long Term Plan. CCGs must also include evidence of providing strategic, integrated commissioning to support population health; whilst ensuring that the move to a larger geographical footprint will not be at the expense of local accountability, or the proposed new CCG’s ability to engage with, and consider the needs of, local communities. Before a merger takes place, the CCG must also demonstrate that they have engaged with and seriously considered the views of their local general practitioners and local Healthwatch. In all cases, CCGs’ legal accountability to NHS England remains the same, regardless of the size of the CCG.</p><p>More broadly, we support NHS England’s intention to streamline commissioning arrangements, as NHS England expect that this will make it easier for the NHS to manage resources, make strategic decisions, and reduce unnecessary bureaucracy.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p>
