unstar this property answer text <p>We have no plans to limit the number of times a person applying to rent a home may be subject to fees for administration and immigration checks. However, letting agents are required to be fully transparent about their fees and publicise a complete tariff of fees in their offices and on their website. The Government believes that full transparency gives consumers the information they need. We intend to carry out a review later this year into how well this approach is working. Not all letting agents do charge fees for right to rent checks and when right to rent was rolled out in the West Midlands, it was found that the majority of letting agents were not charging a fee for conducting the right to rent immigration checks.</p> more like this

NHS England has advised that it develops treatment criteria for cancer and other high cost drugs to support implementation of NICE guidance and to ensure approved treatments are available as intended, with access funded consistently across the country. These criteria are developed by relevant expert clinical advisers, drawn from NHS England’s 42 Clinical Reference Groups (CRGs). These CRGs have been established to support clinical commissioning across the entire specialised commissioning portfolio.</p><p>NHS England has recently completed a review of the treatment criteria related to the use of ibrutinib for the treatment of CLL which concluded that the criteria should be amended such that ibrutinib can be made available as a treatment option for those patients who have had remission durations of three years or more with their preceding line of therapy. Ibrutinib is now available for National Health Service patients in line with the amended treatment criteria.</p>
