star this property answer text <p>On Sunday 29 September, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care formally announced the next stage in our strategic investment in the National Health Service, with the Health Infrastructure Plan (HIP) to ensure that our health infrastructure is fit-for-purpose for decades to come. On Wednesday 2 October, the Prime Minister then set out his plan that “in the next ten years we will build 40 new hospitals in the biggest investment in hospital infrastructure for a generation.” As a step towards this, we have committed funding for six new hospitals as well as seed funding to support the initial stage of a further 34 building projects.</p><p>The package of funding includes:</p><p>- £2.7 billion for six new hospital projects to be delivered in our first phase of major hospital rebuilds (HIP1);</p><p>- £100 million to support for 21 major projects (£5 million each) comprising 34 hospital sites go to the next stage of developing their plans to be delivered in the second phase of major hospital rebuilds, subject to business case development and future spending reviews. Other projects will be able to bid into this and other future waves too. (HIP2); and</p><p>- £200 million investment for state-of-the-art MRI, CT and breast cancer screening machines, to update or replace our most out of date diagnostic equipment, across over 80 trusts.</p><p>The Health Infrastructure Plan also outlines our plans for a new system for ensuring funding reaches the frontline when and where it is needed, with national infrastructure to support this, and clear accountability for how it is spent. These plans include proposals for assisting trusts, including allowing some access to early funding and streamlining the business case process.</p><p>As part of our rolling investment programme, we have confirmed that there will be future phases of the Health Infrastructure Plan, with opportunities for the NHS to put forward further new hospital projects for the next phases of the programme. We also recognise that there may some more schemes suitable for investments that are not currently part of HIP1 and HIP2. These should continue developing their plans and priorities for local NHS infrastructure, and where exceptionally strong schemes come to light before HIP3, we will consider these in the context of available funding.</p>

This is why the NHS Long Term Plan and detailed improvement actions are about ensuring services are easy and convenient for people to use in order to deliver the Long Term Plan ambition on cancer to see 55,000 more people surviving cancer for five years in England each year from 2028.</p><p>The actions plans include real-world case studies which have demonstrated improvements in local areas. These case studies sit alongside widely published evidence which has been proven to deliver improvements in uptake. We expect these actions to have a positive impact on the uptake of screening.</p><p>Sir Mike Richards’ Review of Screening report is due to be published shortly which will identify additional opportunities to improve the uptake of breast, bowel, and cervical screening. In addition, NHSX is looking at possible improvements to screening IT systems, which should support the delivery of cancer screening programmes.</p>

star this property answer text <p>NHS England is committed to improving the uptake of national cancer screening programmes, for breast, bowel, and cervical cancer.</p><p>In January, NHS England published its Long Term Plan, which outlined its ambition to deliver improvements in the uptake of national cancer screening programmes. To support this process, NHS England has developed improving uptake action plans, which can be used by providers and the wider health system, to improve the performance of screening programmes.</p><p>The uptake action plans include proposals for reviewing and extending appointment hours (for example for breast cancer screening) and using data to inform strategies for improving uptake in those populations of greatest need. These plans are already available to commissioning teams and will be updated and reissued throughout the year.</p><p>National Health Service regions are currently developing implementation plans to deliver on these commitments. To provide robust oversight and assurance of delivery, NHS England has established national programme boards for each cancer screening programme area.</p><p>In addition, we expect the Sir Mike Richards’ Review of Screening report, due to be published soon, to identify additional opportunities to improve the uptake of breast, bowel, and cervical screening.</p><p>Further, Public Health England has been running ‘Be Clear on Cancer’ campaigns since 2011. These are designed to raise the public’s awareness of specific cancer symptoms; encourage people with those symptoms to go to the doctor; and diagnose cancer at an earlier stage, and therefore make it more treatable, and thereby improve cancer survival rates.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In the United Kingdom, screening is an end to end service from test to treatment. This is not necessarily the case in other countries such as the United States of America. Therefore, comparisons with other health systems can be misleading.</p><p>In April 2014, the UK National Screening Committee (UK NSC) recommended extending the newborn bloodspot screening programme to include four additional conditions: maple syrup urine disease; homocystinuria; glutaric acidaemia type 1; and isovaleric acidaemia. The newborn blood spot screening is currently offered to all babies to identify nine conditions, as recommended by the UK NSC.</p><p>The UK NSC welcomes any new topic proposals through its annual call for topics. Using research evidence, pilot programmes and economic evaluation, the UK NSC assesses the evidence for programmes against a set of internationally recognised criteria. To ensure that screening is offered where the balance of benefit outweighs the harms.</p><p>In August 2019, the UK NSC published <em>Generation genome and the opportunities for screening programmes</em>. The report reflects the specific opportunities identified by each of the 11 population screening programmes, including the antenatal and newborn screening programmes. The report concluded that the advances in genomic technologies present exciting and potentially effective developments for screening programmes. Current and developing research and technology will be used to determine how, in future, genetics can best be used in screening. A copy of the report is attached.</p>
