It is currently reviewing the evidence for screening young people between the ages of 12 to 39 years for the major causes of sudden cardiac death. A public consultation will open shortly.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>NHS England is working with the Chief Coroner to discuss what the coronial system can do to help reduce sudden cardiac death in the young. As a result, the Chief Coroner has written to local Coroners asking them to make families of those who have died of the condition aware that it may be inherited, and encouraging them to contact either the British Heart Foundation, Cardiac Risk in the Young, or their general practitioner for testing and counselling.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Currently donated lungs are allocated to the designated cardiothoracic transplant centres on a zonal basis. However, the Cardiothoracic Organs Advisory Group (CTAG) have recently reviewed the allocation policy and have recommended that the size of the allocation zones be adjusted to help ensure equity of access. NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) have therefore confirmed that for cardiothoracic organs, the zones will be reviewed in August 2014 to coincide with changes in liver allocation zones and from August 2015, heart and lung zones will be disaggregated and the zones reviewed separately.</p><p> </p><p>CTAG have also recommended that NHSBT reviews the consequences of introducing two levels of priority for listing for lung transplants - urgent and routine, and suggest a national allocation scheme for urgent listed patients, and zonal allocation for routine listed patients.</p><p> </p><p>Any proposed change would need to be validated by NHSBT, who will review the criteria for urgent listing and the statistical modelling of the potential impact of such a system. NHSBT will continue to work closely with the Cystic Fibrosis Trust to improve outcomes for patients requiring lung transplants.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Charging for Residential Accommodation Guidelines (CRAG) supports local authorities to interpret the National Assistance (Assessment of Resources) Regulations 1992. This guidance and the regulations will be repealed from April 2015 when new provisions under the Care Act 2014 come into force.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The new charging framework introduces minimal changes in order to respond to the call for continuity and to enable local authorities to focus on preparing for implementation of the reforms recommended by the independent Commission on Funding Reform that the Care Act will also introduce. From April 2016 this will see the introduction of a cap on care costs that will protect people from the risk of catastrophic costs and an extension to the point at which means tested support becomes available. As the published impact assessment shows, this means that up to 100,000 more people will be better off by 2024-25. We are in the process of updating the modelling and will publish a revised impact assessment shortly. In addition, from April 2015 we are introducing a universal deferred payment agreement scheme that means people should not be forced to sell their home in their lifetime to pay for care.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>
