star this property answer text <p>The electricity used by the FCO across its UK estate is procured using the Crown Commercial Service (CCS). CCS is an executive agency and trading fund of the Cabinet Office of the British Government.</p><p>Through their competitively tendered Energy related commercial agreements, CCS ensure all legislation is adhered to including the environmental standards of suppliers. CCS is not able to dictate the sources of power to be supplied to the government departments as this is internal policy driven. The FCO is currently receiving electricity from the standard UK supply mix, however they have the option to access renewable energy from a variety of alternative routes, taking into account the additional financial commitment.</p><p>The current CCS framework under which the FCO procures its electricity expires in 2023. Under the CCS framework, the electricity is supplied by EDF. The electricity supplied is not solely from renewable resources. The CCS Framework does provide the ability to have electricity solely from renewable resources. The FCO is investigating this option.</p><p>The FCO actively seeks to manage its energy consumption as demonstrated by having reduced carbon emissions associated with its UK energy consumption from 9,485 tCO2e in 2017/18 to 7,357 tCO2e in 2018/19, a reduction of 22.44%.</p>

The expanded explanations produced by the Sentencing Council, which came into force on 1 October, provide further guidance on mitigation where an offender is pregnant.</p><p>Emergency Admissions Boards can be held to expedite a woman’s placement on a mother and baby unit, and there are a range of circumstances when these can be appropriate.

star this property answer text <p>Data on appointments in general practice have only been available since November 2017. The most recent data on the time between booking an appointment with a general practice and having the appointment (in days) for England are presented in the table below as the average over the 12 months from September 2018 to August 2019.</p><p>The data is taken from the NHS Digital publication ‘Appointments in General Practice’. This is a new experimental data collection which is still being refined and improved.</p><p>It should be noted that the ‘time from booking to appointment’ refers only to the time elapsed between the successful booking of an appointment and the appointment actually taking place. The data does not take into consideration that many patients will be appropriately booking ahead as part of the continuity of care they receive for long-term conditions.</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>-</p></td><td><p>England</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>-</p></td><td><p>Distribution of average time elapsed between booking an appointment and the appointment taking place, September 2018 to August 2019. (Number may not add to 100% due to rounding.)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Same Day</p></td><td><p>42%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1 Day</p></td><td><p>7%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2 to 7 Days</p></td><td><p>20%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>8 to 14 Days</p></td><td><p>14%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>15 to 21 Days</p></td><td><p>8%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>22 to 28 Days</p></td><td><p>5%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>More than 28 Days</p></td><td><p>5%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Total</p></td><td><p>100.0%</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>- Data Quality Notes</p><p>- There are several factors that drive the time from a booking to an appointment. This includes appointment availability at the practice, patient availability, the urgency of the appointment and GP advice.</p><p>- The data does not differentiate between emergency and routine appointments in general practice.</p><p>- The data does not include any information about the patients or clinical information</p><p>- The data in the response includes appointments with all healthcare professional types, including GPs and other practice staff.</p><p>- Not all practices in England are included in the appointments in general practice publication, meaning the total number of appointments is not known.</p><p>- Same day and next day bookings are of particular interest so are presented here separately. Further bookings are presented grouped by weeks.</p><p>- The number of appointments that have already happened is provided as recorded in participating practices in England. The data presented only contains information which was captured on the GP practice systems. This limits the activity reported on and does not represent all work happening within a primary care setting.</p>
