star this property answer text <p>The NHS Long Term Plan made a clear commitment to the future of general practice, with primary and community care set to receive at least £4.5 billion more in real terms a year by 2023/24. Spend on these services will grow faster than the rising National Health Service budget. Since the launch of the NHS Long Term Plan, NHS England and the British Medical Association’s General Practitioners (GP) Committee have agreed a five-year GP (General Medical Services) contract framework from 2019/20. The new contract framework will be essential to deliver the ambitions set out in the NHS Long Term Plan through strong general practice services. The contract confirmed that NHS England will now extend a number of general practice programmes until 2023/24 to help deliver against the commitment to 5,000 additional doctors in general practice.</p><p> </p><p>NHS England and Health Education England (HEE) are working together with the profession to increase the 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>Further plans to support delivery will be set out in the final NHS workforce implementation plan due to be published later this year.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The ongoing Ebola outbreak in the DRC is one of DFID’s key emergency priorities. Although a challenging security context is significantly hampering response activities, an experimental vaccine has been deployed throughout the response to good effect, and has likely saved thousands of lives.</p><p>The UK Government is committed to promoting respect for International Humanitarian Law. We strongly condemn repeated attacks and threats of violence directed towards health facilities and health workers who are working towards ending this outbreak. Health workers are not a target. The response must balance protecting health workers with not using security in a way that further escalates mistrust or violence. This is something that the UK has been advocating since the beginning of the outbreak. We are pleased to see theincreasing involvement of the United Nations Department of Safety and Security, as well as a number of civil society organisations who have important experience of working in fragile and conflict affected humanitarian contexts.</p>

This estimated that there were between 10,000 and 13,000 potential victims of modern slavery in the UK in 2013. This estimate does not break down into adult and child cases of modern slavery.</p><p>In the 2018 UK Annual Report on Modern Slavery the National Crime Agency assessed that the actual scale of modern slavery in the UK is gradually increasing and, if drivers remain at their current levels, will continue to do so over the next three years. The Annual Report is available at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attach-ment_data/file/749346/2018_UK_Annual_Report_on_Modern_Slavery.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attach-ment_data/file/749346/2018_UK_Annual_Report_on_Modern_Slavery.pdf</a></p><p>Latest statistics for 2018 on referrals into the National Referral Mechanism and decisions are available at the link below.
