Friend the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care announced a root-and-branch review of all the food in hospitals, both food served, and food sold. This will look at the safety of food available to patients, visitors and staff, and provide healthier choices and improved nutrition.</p><p>National Health Service organisations have systems of due diligence in place to ensure that all their suppliers have appropriate registrations. The kitchens and other areas in the NHS used to store and process food are required to be registered and rated by the local authority and all staff involved in the preparation and handling of food are required to hold a level two food hygiene certificate. In addition to this, a food safety management system must be in place that outlines controls and processes for the safe delivery, handling and preparing of foods.</p><p>The Food Standards Agency (FSA) published comprehensive guidance for healthcare and social care organisations on managing listeria risk in vulnerable people in 2016. The FSA commissioned delivery of training to 557 key staff responsible for food safety in hospitals and 288 local authority Environmental Health Officers in a series of workshops and webinars in 2015.</p><p><strong> </strong></p>

The NHS Long Term Plan sets out that where individuals are identified with high risk conditions, appropriate preventative treatments will be offered in a timely way, and the creation of a national CVD prevention audit for primary care will also support continuous clinical improvement. NHS England and NHS Improvement will continue to work closely with key partners and stakeholders, such as the British Heart Foundation, as it supports the NHS to deliver the commitments set out in the NHS Long Term Plan.</p> more like this

In addition to mainstream services, Veterans can also access specific services such as the Veterans Trauma Network. Veterans are able to access high quality clinically appropriate prosthetic limbs from the National Health Service. Nine NHS prosthetic centres are in place to provide enhanced services for veterans.</p><p>In addition to these services, a new package of support for seriously wounded armed forces personnel was launched on 29 March 2019, the Integrated Personal Commissioning for Veterans Framework (IPC4V). This new pathway will ensure that individuals with very complex and enduring healthcare requirements transitioning out of the military into civilian life will continue to receive comprehensive support.</p><p>The above services (as well as some for mental health needs) are commissioned and paid for by NHS England, whereas the devolved administrations have their own arrangements for providing care to veterans.</p><p>The health needs of serving personnel are dealt with by the Defence Medical Services.</p>

This was a small pilot study of 14 people, and therefore research remains at an early stage. In order to be suitable for routine National Health Service use, larger scale clinical trials demonstrating the safety and efficacy of this treatment approach would need to be undertaken, and assessments of its cost effectiveness would also need to be considered.</p> more like this
