star this property answer text <p>The Sustainable Development Unit (SDU) in Public Health England and NHS England, working with NHS Improvement, issued guidance in June to National Health Service providers to support improvements in environmental best practice. This can be found at:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.sduhealth.org.uk/resources/default.aspx" target="_blank">https://www.sduhealth.org.uk/resources/default.aspx</a></p><p> </p><p>In November 2017 the SDU also published the Sustainable Development Assessment Tool that helps organisations build and monitor progress against robust and comprehensive Sustainable Development Management Plans (SDMPs). The tool is aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, United Kingdom Government and NHS policy and strategy. It can be found at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.sduhealth.org.uk/sdat/" target="_blank">https://www.sduhealth.org.uk/sdat/</a></p><p> </p><p>In early 2018 the SDU also updated the criteria/scope on sustainability reporting, for NHS organisations in line with Treasury best practice. This can be found at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.sduhealth.org.uk/resources/default.aspx" target="_blank">https://www.sduhealth.org.uk/resources/default.aspx</a></p><p> </p><p>I have also held meetings with both NHS England and NHS Improvement to discuss how best to reduce the use of plastics across the NHS.</p><p> </p><p>Both the SDU and NHS Improvement hold a repository of best practice case studies across areas including energy and carbon, travel, waste and behaviour change. New case studies are published regularly and promoted to NHS organisations through monthly ebulletins and social media, which can be found at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.sduhealth.org.uk/resources/case-studies.aspx" target="_blank">https://www.sduhealth.org.uk/resources/case-studies.aspx</a></p><p> </p><p>All NHS providers that are party to the Long Form NHS Standard Contract are required to have in place and report annually on a SDMP. SDMPs are board adopted plans that set out how NHS organisations will minimise negative impacts and maximise positive impacts on the environment, society and economy.</p><p> </p><p>Information about individual trust board appointments is not held centrally. Annual sustainability reports are now also required from all trusts and must be signed off by boards as part of the Annual Reporting process. Environmental data submitted through trusts Estates Record Information Collection (ERIC) must also be signed off by a board level representative. Information about individual trusts’ SDMPs, approved by the trust board, and about Sustainability Reports and environmental data from ERIC, at a trust level, can be found at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.sduhealth.org.uk/policy-strategy/reporting/organisational-summaries.aspx" target="_blank">https://www.sduhealth.org.uk/policy-strategy/reporting/organisational-summaries.aspx</a></p><p> </p><p>Ministers have had no recent meetings with the medical Royal Colleges or medical equipment suppliers about reducing the use of plastic in the NHS. The NHS, in common with all other healthcare systems, has to use some single-use plastic devices and other plastic items to deliver effective care to patients. NHS trusts do, however, minimise the impact of healthcare on the environment.</p><p> </p><p>Information on those NHS trusts that produce their own energy is collected annually through ERIC. Overall, 36% of the energy consumed by those sites is produced by them. Details are shown in the attached table.</p><p> </p><p>All ERIC data is published at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://digital.nhs.uk/data-and-information/publications/statistical/estates-returns-information-collection" target="_blank">https://digital.nhs.uk/data-and-information/publications/statistical/estates-returns-information-collection</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>The General Medical Service contract sets out that where a general practitioner (GP) practice provides maternity medical services, the practice is required to provide to female patients and their babies all necessary maternity medical services throughout the postnatal period other than neonatal checks. The GP contract regulations define the postnatal period as “the period beginning with the conclusion of the delivery of the baby or the patient’s discharge from secondary care services (whichever is the later) and ending on the fourteenth day after the birth”.</p><p> </p><p>Any changes to GP contracting arrangements to specifically include a six week postnatal check-up would need to be negotiated with the General Practitioners’ Committee of the British Medical Association as part of the annual contract negotiations.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As from 1 April 2019, the Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch (HSIB) maternity investigations programme is fully staffed and operational in every healthcare region in England.</p><p>The HSIB is estimated to undertake 1,000 investigations in 2019. Work will be undertaken to forecast future estimates for the next three years based on the most recent datasets held by the HSIB.</p><p>Since the start of the HSIB maternity investigations programme up until 12 April 2019, a total of 401 investigations have gone live and four investigations have been completed. From 1 April 2019 HSIB will be operating at full capacity and is continuously refining its methodology to improve the turn-around time for completing investigations. As a result, the number of investigations completed are expected to increase in 2019.</p><p>The 60-day timeframe applies to the current NHS Serious Incident Framework. In line with the National Health Service Trust Development Authority (Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch) (Additional Investigatory Functions in respect of Maternity Cases) Directions 2018, HSIB is required to complete investigations within 6 months. <strong> </strong></p><p>The HSIB’s investigations will replace hospital reviews of intrapartum stillbirths only for cases which fall within scope of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists’ Each Baby Counts criteria. This criterion includes all term babies (at least 37 completed weeks of gestation) born following labour who have one of the following outcomes: intrapartum stillbirth or where the baby was thought to be alive at the start of labour but was born with no signs of life.</p><p>The HSIB was allocated £10 million in 2018/19 for the maternity investigations programme. A final budget for 2019/20 is to be finalised. Budgets for future years have not been determined.</p><p>The National Health Service Trust Development Authority (Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch) (Additional Investigatory Functions in respect of Maternity Cases) Directions 2018 states that “In carrying out the additional investigatory functions, the ‘safe space principle’ as described at paragraph 6(1) of HSIB Directions does not apply.”</p>

star this property answer text <p>According to the National Maternity and Perinatal Audit (NMPA), the majority of its measures are restricted to data available on singleton, term births. The NMPA have stated that it plans to analyse a set of key measures for preterm and multiple births and to publish this separately. We will then consider how these data might inform its policies for improving maternity safety.</p><p> </p><p>The latest MBRRACE-UK Perinatal Mortality Surveillance Report noted that between 2014-2016 twin stillbirths reduced by 44% and neonatal deaths fell by 30%. These falls are statistically significant and the largest fall among any population since records began.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Prevalence estimates for Lipoedema vary, though suggest a minimum of 1 in 72,000 women are affected. Approaches to treatment that may be offered by local National Health Service services are usually non-surgical and may include:</p><p> </p><p>- compression therapy (bandages or garments that squeeze the affected limbs);</p><p>- exercise (usually low-impact exercises, such as swimming); and</p><p>- massage (techniques that help encourage the flow of fluid through the body).</p><p> </p><p>Liposuction may be also considered, however there is limited evidence for its efficacy in the treatment of the condition and it is not routinely available on the NHS.</p><p> </p><p>As there has been little research into lipoedema, there is some uncertainty about the best way to treat the condition. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence has not assessed, and therefore not approved, any approaches for the management or treatment of lipoedema.</p> more like this
