unstar this property answer text <p>The Sustainable Development Unit, a joint NHS England and Public Health England unit, has established a cross sector working group on low carbon inhalers. A cross system approach is now being developed into a system wide implementation plan, with specific actions being delivered by individual members of the group. All actions are supporting progress towards or to exceed the NHS Long Term Plan commitment on low carbon inhalers. This will contribute to the overall National Health Service commitment in the Long Term Plan to reduce carbon emissions in line with the UK Climate Change Act.</p><p> </p><p>On 8 April 2019, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) published a patient decision aid to help people with asthma, alongside health professionals, to identify which inhalers could meet their needs and control their symptoms. Where several inhalers could be viable options, the decision aid helps clinicians and patients choose the more environmentally friendly option, with a lower carbon footprint. It is co-funded by the SDU.</p><p> </p><p>This is the first time NICE has included climate change impacts in any guidance. The decision aid also highlights the need for used devices to be returned to pharmacies for environmentally safe disposal.</p><p> </p><p>A link to NICE’s decision aid can be found at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng80/resources/inhalers-for-asthma-patient-decision-aid-pdf-6727144573" target="_blank">https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng80/resources/inhalers-for-asthma-patient-decision-aid-pdf-6727144573</a></p>

unstar this property answer text <p>In 2010, after carefully considering all the available evidence, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) found that offering a universal varicella vaccination programme against chickenpox would not be cost effective and may increase the risk of severe disease and complications in adulthood, both from chickenpox and shingles. The JCVI statement is available at the following link:</p><p><a href="http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/20120907090205/http:/www.dh.gov.uk/prod_consum_dh/groups/dh_digitalassets/@dh/@ab/documents/digitalasset/dh_133599.pdf" target="_blank">http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/20120907090205/http:/www.dh.gov.uk/prod_consum_dh/groups/dh_digitalassets/@dh/@ab/documents/digitalasset/dh_133599.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p>The JCVI keeps all its recommendations under review and is currently considering the latest scientific evidence to establish whether a routine childhood varicella vaccination programme would be effective and of benefit in England; this includes evidence from other countries that have introduced a vaccination programme. The JCVI will make its recommendations, once it has considered all the necessary evidence.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>It is widely recognised that, along with lowering the burden of infection and exposure to resistance and optimising our use of antimicrobials, we also need a sustainable supply of new diagnostics, therapies and vaccines to tackle antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The World Bank has predicted a global shortfall of $1 trillion gross domestic product per year after 2030 that could push an extra 28.3 million people into extreme poverty if we do not address AMR; potentially an additional 10 million deaths will be attributable to AMR by 2050.</p><p>The new United Kingdom five-year AMR national action plan, published alongside the UK 20-year vision for AMR on 24 January 2019, has therefore made the commitment to continue to invest in and promote innovation to tackle AMR and to work with international partners to agree a coordinated global system for incentivising new diagnostics and therapeutics. The UK is leading the way in testing solutions that address the failure of companies to invest in the development of new antimicrobials.</p>

This will empower people to manage their care and the impact of their cancer, and maximise the potential of digital and community-based support. Over the next three years every patient with cancer will get a full assessment of their needs, an individual care plan and information and support for their wider health and wellbeing.
