This decision has secured a sustainable future for the UK shipbuilding industry. <br><br>There are a number of commercial yards outside Scotland that could be considered as potential alternatives; however, no assessment of the viability of these shipyards as a potential focus for complex warship building has been undertaken.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Gold Standards Framework Centre that was developed by Dr Keri Thomas is a private, non-profit organisation that provides training to National Health Service and care home staff in improving the quality of end of life care. There is not an equivalent gold standard framework for detecting group B streptococcus (GBS) infection.</p><p> </p><p>The Enriched Culture Medium (ECM) test is used for detecting GBS carriage at 35-37 weeks of pregnancy and is included in Public Health England’s UK Standards for Microbiology Investigations: Detection of Carriage of Group B Streptococci. In June 2015, Public Health England, in response to requests to introduce the ECM test into Public Health England laboratories, published an advisory position paper which sets out that within current accepted clinical guidelines, there are no indications for testing women using ECM methods. The position paper is available on the gov.uk website at:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/group-b-streptococcus-infection-enriched-culture-medium-test" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/group-b-streptococcus-infection-enriched-culture-medium-test</a></p><p> </p><p>The UK National Screening Committee (UK NSC), the body which advises Ministers in all four United Kingdom countries on all aspects of screening, recommended in 2012 that antenatal screening for GBS carriage at 35 -37 weeks of pregnancy should not be offered because currently there is insufficient evidence to demonstrate that the benefits to be gained from screening would outweigh the harms. The UK NSC is currently reviewing its recommendation on antenatal screening for GBS carriage. A public consultation on the UK NSC’s review opened on 28 October 2016 and will close on 25 January 2017. A copy of the consultation is available at:</p><p><a href="https://legacyscreening.phe.org.uk/groupbstreptococcus" target="_blank">https://legacyscreening.phe.org.uk/groupbstreptococcus</a></p><p> </p><p>A recommendation is expected from the UK NSC following its meeting in February 2017.</p>

The Department maintains standard NHS Terms and Conditions for NHS trusts to use when procuring goods and services. They are published on the GOV.UK website:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/nhs-standard-terms-and-conditions-of-contract-for-the-purchase-of-goods-and-supply-of-services" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/nhs-standard-terms-and-conditions-of-contract-for-the-purchase-of-goods-and-supply-of-services</a></p><p>In addition, the Department has developed a full suite of tools and templates, including Invitation to Tender (ITT) documentation for NHS trusts to use when entering into contracts with suppliers. The Commercial Schedule within the ITT documentation includes a pricing model and connected questions, which enable NHS trusts to understand supplier pricing.</p><p> </p><p>The tools and templates are underpinned by an NHS Guide to Procurement. This provides guidance on drafting an effective specification, setting evaluation criteria in line with the principle of ‘most economical advantageous tender’, and devising a robust pricing model (for use when the template provided is not appropriate for the procurement).</p><p> </p><p>By using the standard NHS Terms and Conditions, the NHS Guide to Procurement and the suite of tools and templates, NHS trusts can ensure suppliers submit competitive tenders. Additionally, NHS trusts are also encouraged to use frameworks, such as those procured on behalf of Government by the Crown Commercial Service, enabling them to benefit from consolidated buying arrangements.</p><p> </p><p>The NHS Terms and Conditions guidance document accompanies the NHS Terms and Conditions. Through this guidance document, the Department advises NHS trusts to include in the specification, general requirements as well as key areas such as key performance indicators and conducting periodic contract review meetings to review contractor performance.</p>
