star this property answer text <p>This information is not available. Although some information on post-operative complications experienced by osteoporosis patients following surgery of the hip and knee is available via the Health and Social Care Information Centre’s Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) data collection, this only covers hip and knee replacement, and not the full range of surgical interventions. In addition to this, as PROMs is a voluntary reporting system the data published does not reflect the total number of osteoporosis patients having complications for all hip and knee replacements. More information on PROMS data can be found at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.hscic.gov.uk/proms" target="_blank">www.hscic.gov.uk/proms</a></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The Prescribed Specialised Services Advisory Group (PSSAG) is a Department of Health expert committee which provides advice to Ministers on which services should be prescribed in regulations for national commissioning by the NHS Commissioning Board (NHS England).</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>PSSAG makes recommendations to Ministers, who are obliged under section 3B of the National Health Service Act 2006 to take appropriate advice and to consult with NHS England before making regulations to prescribe particular services as specialised services for NHS England commissioning. Decisions on the timing of any changes to commissioning responsibilities will take account of advice from PSSAG and any consultation response from NHS England.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Where a service is prescribed for national commissioning, NHS England becomes responsible for making decisions on the commissioning of that service, including funding of specific interventions as part of that service. We understand from NHS England that where it becomes the responsible commissioner for a service, it considers the funding priority of the service through its Clinical Priorities Advisory Group.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>We understand the Alpha 1 Alliance has worked with NHS England and the Specialised Respiratory Clinical Reference Group to develop a proposal for the national commissioning of services for patients with alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency, which will be put to PSSAG for consideration at its next meeting on 30 September. A report containing PSSAG’s recommendations will be published once Ministers have made decisions on any associated changes.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The exact information requested is not available for 16 to 18 year olds in EU countries.</p><p> </p><p>The European Commission monitors the progress of member states in reducing the share of early leavers from education and training (adults aged 18-24 who left school without having achieved the minimum upper secondary qualification and who are not currently enrolled in any education and training) as part of their Europe 2020 education and training benchmarking strategy. The UK early leaving rate (12.4% in 2013) remains very slightly above the EU average (12% in 2013) but has been on a downward trend since 2011, falling from 15% in 2010 to 12.4% in 2013. However, the government’s official statistics (covering England only) are more up to date than these figures and show that the proportion of 16 to 18 year olds NEET at the end of 2013 was down to 7.6%, the lowest rate since comparable records began in 1994.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Commission’s annual Education and Training Monitor (2014) is available here:<br> <a href="http://ec.europa.eu/education/library/publications/monitor14_en.pdf" target="_blank">http://ec.europa.eu/education/library/publications/monitor14_en.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p>The OECD publishes figures for 15 to 19 year olds who are not in education, employment or training (NEET), including 21 EU countries:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="4"><p><strong>Percentage of 15 to 19 year-olds who are </strong><strong>not in education, employment or training</strong><strong> (2012)</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td> </td><td><p>%</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Australia</p></td><td><p>7.2</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Austria</p></td><td><p>4.7</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Belgium</p></td><td><p>8.3</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Canada</p></td><td><p>7.3</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Chile (2011)</p></td><td><p>17.5</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Czech Republic</p></td><td><p>4.0</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Denmark</p></td><td><p>5.7</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Estonia</p></td><td><p>6.8</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Finland</p></td><td><p>4.7</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>France</p></td><td><p>6.9</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Germany</p></td><td><p>3.0</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Greece</p></td><td><p>5.3</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Hungary</p></td><td><p>4.8</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Iceland</p></td><td><p>4.8</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Ireland</p></td><td><p>9.6</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Israel</p></td><td><p>10.7</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Italy</p></td><td><p>12.0</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Japan (age 15-24)</p></td><td><p>9.4</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Korea</p></td><td><p>8.5</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Luxembourg</p></td><td><p>2.9</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Mexico</p></td><td><p>17.0</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Netherlands</p></td><td><p>2.4</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>New Zealand</p></td><td><p>8.7</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Norway</p></td><td><p>3.0</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Poland</p></td><td><p>3.9</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Portugal</p></td><td><p>7.9</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Slovak Republic</p></td><td><p>5.6</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Slovenia</p></td><td><p>3.8</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Spain</p></td><td><p>11.4</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Sweden</p></td><td><p>4.1</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Switzerland</p></td><td><p>4.7</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>Turkey</p></td><td><p>22.8</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>United Kingdom</strong></p></td><td><p><strong> 9.5 </strong></p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>United States</p></td><td><p>7.7</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>OECD average <em>(excluding Chile and Japan)</em></p></td><td><p>7.5</p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>EU21 average</strong></p></td><td><p><strong> 6.1 </strong></p></td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td colspan="3"><p>Source: OECD (2014), Education at a Glance 2014, Table C5.2a.</p></td><td> </td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p><a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.1787/888933118903" target="_blank">http://dx.doi.org/10.1787/888933118903</a></p><p> </p>
