answer text <p>The Mid and South Essex Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) has set out proposals to change how they provide specialist care across the three hospitals in their STP, to improve access for their population. The proposals are currently under review by the Independent Reconfiguration Panel.</p><p>The proposals include the development of a ‘treat and transfer’ model which would allow a small number of patients within specified conditions to be stabilised at their local accident and emergency department and then, if appropriate, transferred using a specialist clinical transfer service to a different hospital to receive ongoing specialist treatment and care. If this model is utilised, it is anticipated that 15 additional patients each day could be transferred, increasing the total number transferred each day to 29.</p><p>As the proposals are currently subject to a referral to the Independent Reconfiguration Panel, the commissioning of any service will not commence prior to the resolution of that process. The Mid and South Essex STP has secured £118 million of capital investment to support these plans. A full competitive tender process will be undertaken if the proposals are pursued.</p><p>Once the final service specification has been agreed and issued to the market, the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust and other providers will be in a position to determine their capacity to fulfil the contract, which would be assessed through any procurement process.</p><p> </p>

answer text <p>The Department is investing over £1 billion a year in health research through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). The NIHR supports a wide portfolio of research on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) through various funding streams. 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>

answer text <p>Cyber security is vital to defence and training our personnel is of paramount importance to us. The Defence Cyber School, which celebrated its first year anniversary in March this year, is a centre of excellence for cyber training established to meet the needs of defence and its partners, addressing all aspects of cyber training and education.</p><p>Since it's opening, the Defence Cyber School has delivered over 4,000 days of training to personnel across its range of courses. Training has been wide ranging from practical networking taught to Junior and Senior Non Commissioned Officers (NCOs), cyber awareness to Senior NCOs, officers and strategic level cyber awareness to one-star masterclasses.</p><p>It is essential that we continue to operate effectively in the fast-moving and evolving digital world. The Defence Cyber School team, in an exciting step for the cyber community, are currently redesigning all their courses. The new courses being developed will form the Cyber Foundation Pathway, envisioned to give a baseline grounding for our Armed Forces in cyber roles in the Ministry of Defence and in time, for staff in cyber roles in wider Government.</p>

While we do this, we will not grant any new licences for exports to Saudi Arabia and its coalition partners (UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain and Egypt) for possible use in the conflict in Yemen. We disagree with the judgment and are seeking permission to appeal.</p><p> </p><p>Extant licences are not immediately affected by this judgment but decisions about these licences are remitted to the Government to reconsider in the light of the judgment. The Campaign Against Arms Trade did not seek an Order to suspend licences and the Court has not ordered their suspension. The Court expressly clarified that the outcome of the reconsideration was not a foregone conclusion.</p> more like this
