star this property answer text <p>The National Shingles Vaccination Programme, implemented in September 2013 is provided by general practices. The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation recommends the shingles vaccine for adults routinely at age 70 years with a phased catch up for those aged 71-79 years. The eligibility criteria change means that patients become eligible for the vaccine from their 70th and 78th birthdays, if not previously vaccinated, and can be offered the vaccine opportunistically all year round.</p><p>In support of this change, Public Health England (PHE) has updated the communication materials for both patients and healthcare professionals to better identify those who are eligible and emphasise the benefits to patients from the shingles vaccination. This includes guidance for those individuals who have missed the opportunity to receive the vaccine previously but who remain eligible, up to their 80th birthday.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has a strategy to improve engagement with the Yellow Card Scheme as well as to increase access through a wide variety or reporting mechanisms, for both healthcare professionals as well as for patients.</p><p>The MHRA has expanded the mechanisms through which reports of side effects can be made. Most recently a new mobile reporting application was delivered, which also includes helpful information about medicines. The MHRA is also continuing to integrate with clinical systems within primary and secondary care to make reporting faster and more accessible to healthcare professionals which has already driven reporting rates up and will continue to do so with the inclusion of more clinical systems.</p><p>The MHRA actively promote the Scheme through regular awareness campaigns (both locally and internationally), attendance at conferences and patient groups, satellite Yellow Card centres that promote locally and the MHRA also provides a range of educational materials to support understanding of the Scheme and the work that the MHRA does.</p><p>An important mechanism to maximise use of the Scheme by healthcare professionals and increase its impact is the National Medication Safety Network, which consists of approximately 450 Medication Safety Officers (MSOs), who raise awareness for reporting of side effects due to medication errors. MSOs are mostly pharmacists based within hospital trusts who encourage local and national learning as well as improve reporting.</p><p>The MHRA regularly communicates safety information through a monthly electronic newsletter called Drug Safety Update which informs healthcare professionals about the latest medicines safety issues and is always coupled with messages to report suspected adverse drug reactions to the Yellow Card Scheme.</p><p>To improve accessibility and transparency, the MHRA has publicly available online interactive Drug Analysis Profiles (iDAPs). The iDAPs are provided for all licensed drugs for which the MHRA have received reports of suspected adverse reactions through the Yellow Card Scheme.</p><p>The MHRA encourages online feedback from both healthcare professionals and patients and proactively engages with patients on a regular basis. Feedback from patients is used to make improvements to the Scheme and to the ways in which patients can report suspected side effects.</p>

In 2017 there were 18 cases.

The models used in this assessment are published in the paper <em>A Risk Assessment of Antibiotic Pan-Drug-Resistance in the UK: Bayesian Analysis of an Expert Elicitation Study</em>. A copy of the paper is attached.</p><p>Such predictions are highly uncertain. There remain unknowns regarding transmission, efficacy of interventions and the additional hospital stay for infected patients (constituting a large part of the cost to the NHS).</p><p>PHE has worked with NHS colleagues, estimating the cost of controlling a carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) outbreak in five London hospitals to be over £1 million. Monitoring costs alongside implementation of PHE’s upcoming update of the CPE toolkit for health and social care is an important component of enabling cost-effectiveness evaluation.</p><p>Staff interviewed about the challenges of implementing the existing CPE toolkit highlighted maintaining awareness and training as key challenges, alongside infection prevention resourcing. An analysis of the responses was published in the paper <em>An evaluation of a toolkit for the early detection, management, and control of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae: a survey of acute hospital trusts in England</em>.
