unstar this property answer text <p>Each individual medical school sets its own undergraduate medical curriculum. These have to meet the standards set by the General Medical Council (GMC) in ‘Promoting excellence’, who then monitor and check to make sure that these standards are maintained. The curricula for postgraduate specialty training is set by individual royal colleges and faculties, and the GMC approves curricula and assessment systems for each training programme.</p><p> </p><p>There are no specific medical dermatology undergraduate training pathways, as all medical students complete a medical degree and foundation training to the point of GMC registration, and then students can specialise in dermatology as part of a postgraduate core medical training and higher specialty training programme. Dermatology is one of 30 specialties within the medicine specialty group. It is a highly competitive specialty and often oversubscribed.</p><p> </p><p>The number of medical specialty training places in England that are available each year is set by Health Education England and is based on their assessment of service gaps and predicted workforce needs. There has been a 100% fill rate in dermatology training in England for the past six years.</p><p> </p><p>Dermatologist education and training and recruitment in Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland is a matter for the devolved administrations.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Clinical commissioning groups are putting in place initiatives to help better manage the increasing demand for dermatology services. This has included developing clear multidisciplinary pathways and care models that address patients’ physical and psychological needs, better use of teledermatology as well as a clear model for community dermatology; using nurses, pharmacists and general practitioners with extended roles to ensure that patients receive the right treatment and care in the most appropriate setting.</p><p> </p><p>The National Health Service has worked with local sites and published a handbook that describes what local health and care systems can do to transform dermatology elective care services at pace, why this is necessary and how the impact of this transformation can be measured. Practical guidance for implementing and adopting a range of interventions locally is included to help ensure patients see the right person, in the right place, first time.</p><p> </p><p>The dermatology handbook can be found on the NHS England website at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/dermatology-elective-care-handbook-v1.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/dermatology-elective-care-handbook-v1.pdf</a></p>

The Department recognises that through our ‘no deal’ EU exit medicines contingency programme. We are requesting sensitive commercial information from pharmaceutical suppliers. To reassure participating companies, we have committed to treating all information received confidentially, securely and to using it only for the purposes of the Department’s programme. That means not introducing information about specific medicines into the public domain.</p><p> </p><p>As with many contracts involving capital investment, the Department will be liable for some capital costs already incurred by the contractors in the event of a deal being approved by parliament. In that scenario, warehouse providers are required to decommission the additional capacity. The Department has also put in place measures to minimise pre-committed expenditure in the event of a deal being achieved.</p>
