unstar this property answer text <p>This Government is committed to creating a country that works for everyone, where success is based on merit, not privilege, and where everyone has the chance to go as far as their talents and hard work will take them. That is why the Government has in place a number of strategies to address social mobility and improve outcomes for those who experience disadvantage.</p><p>Section 1 of the Equality Act 2010 is the public sector duty regarding socio-economic inequalities, which has not been commenced. The Government has no plans to commence or enforce the duty because we believe that specific programmes designed to address social mobility problems in particular areas will be a more effective approach than blanket legislation of this type.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The burden of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions is likely to rise significantly due to an ageing population and a combination of obesity and physical inactivity. Individual clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and local authorities (LAs) are responsible for the delivery of services to treat and support the prevention of MSK disorders from their respective resources allocation. Where appropriate, some local services may be designed and delivered in partnership between CCGs and LAs.</p><p>Whilst not all MSK conditions are preventable, physical activity can play an important part in reducing risk of developing certain MSK disorders and managing MSK symptoms. Regular physical activity that meets national guidelines on frequency and intensity can reduce an individual’s risk of developing joint and back pain by 25% and can improve symptoms for people with MSK conditions.</p><p>The Department works with Public Health England (PHE), NHS England and local authorities to promote physical activity. The ‘Providing physical activity interventions for people with musculoskeletal conditions’ report, published in March 2017 is the result of collaboration between Arthritis Research UK, PHE, NHS England and the Department. The report reviews the benefits of physical activity both for people with MSK conditions and wider society and provides a framework that supports a tiered approach to intervention. More information can be found at the following link:</p><p><a href="http://www.arthritisresearchuk.org/policy-and-public-affairs/reports-and-resources/reports/physical-activity-report.aspx" target="_blank">www.arthritisresearchuk.org/policy-and-public-affairs/reports-and-resources/reports/physical-activity-report.aspx</a></p><p>PHE is leading the discussions to engage all partners and stakeholders to prevent, detect and treat MSK conditions at an earlier stage through the use of evidence based interventions. For the whole population, the Government and PHE are also working to promote and support lifestyles that encourage people to make informed healthy choice in their approach to physical activity and eating a healthy diet, in order to promote overall wellbeing as well as reduce their risk of developing MSK conditions and to maintain and enhance bone health.</p>

We are considering the review’s recommendations and will respond in due course.</p><p> </p><p>As part of the exit negotiations the Government will discuss with the European Union and Member States how best to continue cooperation on medicine research and development and regulation in the best interests of both the United Kingdom and the EU. It would not be appropriate to pre-judge the outcome of the negotiations, but we are clear that whatever happens NHS patients should have access to cost-effective life-changing treatments as soon as possible.</p> more like this

The UK Government's future partnership paper sets out the UK’s position on enforcement and reviews examples of mechanisms for resolving disputes in international agreements. It states that as part of the deep and special partnership we seek with the EU, it is in the interests of both the UK and the EU that: the rights and obligations agreed between us can be relied upon and enforced by individuals and businesses; and where disputes arise between the UK and the EU on the application or interpretation of these obligations, those disputes can be resolved efficiently and effectively.</p><p> </p><p>The Government's top priority for life sciences during the negotiations is to protect the safety of patients and ensure the integrity of cross-European public health systems. The Government will seek a mutually beneficial future partnership between the UK and EU that is in the interests of both sides, which builds on the convergence between our regulatory systems and gives business the maximum freedom to trade with and operate within European markets.</p>
