answer text <p>The allocation of funding to clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) to support them in commissioning services for their local population is one of the key duties of NHS England. The approach NHS England must take in setting allocations is outlined in the mandate from the Department which says:</p><p><em> </em></p><p>“The Government expects the principle of ensuring equal access for equal need to be at the heart of NHS England’s approach to allocating budgets.”</p><p> </p><p>The approach is also informed by NHS England’s duty to reduce inequalities to accessing services and the outcomes of care.</p><p> </p><p>These two aims are reflected in the target formula, which produces a target allocation or ‘fair share’ for each area, based on a complex assessment of factors such as demography, morbidity, deprivation, and the unavoidable cost of providing services in different areas. The NHS England Board has agreed a pace of change policy that seeks to bring all CCGs to target funding over time.</p><p> </p><p>The formula is based on independent academic research and is overseen by an independent external group, the Advisory Committee on Resource Allocation, which provides advice to the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care and the Chief Executive of NHS England.</p><p><strong> </strong></p>

answer text <p>In the development of each national tariff, NHS England and NHS Improvement undertakes an overall assessment of the impact of proposals. While this provides an overall assessment of impact, detailed feedback on proposed prices for individual HRGs (units of healthcare) is sought from clinical Expert Working Groups (EWGs). This is to ensure that the published tariff supports clinical practice.</p><p>For the 2017/19 tariff (set for two years), the prices for BZ91 were increased following EWG feedback. However, for the 2019/20 tariff the EWG advised that increasing the prices was no longer appropriate. The EWG felt that there had been a significant change in clinical practice since the 2017/19 prices were set, with a shift to performing minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS), which are significantly cheaper, rather than open/tube glaucoma procedures. Based on diagnosis and procedure codes entered into patient records, MIGS activity is assigned to the HRG BZ91. However, the current codes do not allow differentiation between MIGS and non-MIGS activity. This means that BZ91 covers procedures of different levels of resource use.</p><p>Reference costs are collected and published annually and the latest published data is for the financial year 2017-18. The reference cost data and links to previous years data can be found at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://improvement.nhs.uk/resources/reference-costs/#rc1718" target="_blank">https://improvement.nhs.uk/resources/reference-costs/#rc1718</a></p>

answer text <p>To ensure sufficient space to store stockpiled medicines, we agreed contracts for additional warehouse space, including ambient, refrigerated and controlled drug storage aligned to the possible 29 March exit date. All these types of storage remain available and should be sufficient to meet the additional needs of medicines suppliers to enable them to build or rebuild their stockpiles prior to 31 October. The original procurement was carried out to give additional leeway should the level of storage required be greater than initially estimated. As part our contingency planning for a possible ‘no deal’ European Union exit on 31 October, we have re-assessed the additional warehouse capacity required to meet the six-week stockpile request made of industry and have confidence that the current capacity we have in place for 31 October will be sufficient.</p><p>The Government’s Border Delivery Group has been reviewing the readiness of border infrastructures and of traders to comply with customs and borders processes in the United Kingdom and the EU. While the predicted flow rate across the short straits has improved slightly since 29 March, significant disruption would be expected for six months following a ‘no deal’ exit, with the most severe period being the first three months.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p>
