unstar this property answer text <p>The Government has committed an additional 2.1% funding in real terms to the National Health Service for the year 2017-18. This is the extra money being given through the NHS England Mandate to front-line services. The following table sets out the comparable figures back to 2013-14, when NHS England was created.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>NHS England Mandate (cash) £ billion</p></td><td><p>Real terms increase % (2017-18 prices)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017-18</p></td><td><p>109.9</p></td><td><p>2.1</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016-17</p></td><td><p>106.0</p></td><td><p>3.2</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>100.5</p></td><td><p>2.6</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>97.3</p></td><td><p>1.3</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>94.7</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>Prior to 2013-14, NHS funding was measured only through the Department’s departmental expenditure limit. A series of tables showing the Department’s total departmental expenditure limit from 1997-98 to 2013-14 is attached, due to the size of the data. During this period, the Government method of accounting changed from cash to a resource budgeting basis. The figures in different stages of the accounting change are not comparable.</p>

All National Health Service organisations are expected to adhere to this expectation, but are not legally obliged to do so. A failure to engage with staff may lead to investigation and the imposition of mandated support or enforcement action.

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government has no plans to introduce a national helpline specifically to support people affected by prescribed drug dependence. People who feel that they might be dependent on either prescribed or over the counter medicines should seek help from a health professional in the first instance, such as a general practitioner (GP) or pharmacist. Help and advice is also available from the 111 helpline or the online NHS Choices service. People who have developed problems with benzodiazepines, antidepressants, painkillers and other medicines should seek help from their GP in the first instance. Specialist advice for GPs and support for patients with complex and severe problems is available from substance misuse services which are available in each local authority across the country.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has commissioned Public Health England to undertake an evidence review to better understand the scope of the problem of prescribed drug dependence. The review will bring together the best available evidence on prevalence and prescribing, the nature and likely causes of dependence or withdrawal among some people who continue to take these medicines and effective prevention and treatment responses for each indication.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

The Care Certificate equips new staff with the knowledge and skills which they need to provide safe, compassionate care across a range of areas, including the care of people with dementia.</p><p> </p><p>There is no statutory requirement for providers to implement the Care Certificate. Care Quality Commission inspectors do, however, have powers to enforce regulations covering staff induction and training. As such, they would expect to see induction programmes that are broadly equivalent to the Care Certificate standards.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>In March 2017, the Department of Health and Social Care and the Department for Communities and Local Government, working with the Local Government Association, Association of Directors of Adult Social Services and NHS England, published the Integration and Better Care Fund Policy Framework 2017-19. The document includes the policy framework for the implementation of the Better Care Fund (BCF), which is the first national, mandatory integration policy. The BCF has helped to join up health and care services so people can manage their own health and wellbeing, and live independently in their communities for as long as possible. In both 2015-16 and 2016-17, local areas voluntarily pooled more than the minimum required taking the total to £5.3 billion and £5.9 billion respectively.</p><p> </p><p>The Policy Framework also sets out our proposals for going beyond the BCF towards further integration, including that areas will be allowed to ‘graduate’ once they have demonstrated that they have moved beyond the requirements of BCF reporting and are exemplars of integration. To help local areas understand whether they are meeting our integration ambition, the Department is developing integration metrics for assessing progress, particularly at the interface where health and social care interact. The Department is working with the Social Care Institute for Excellence to better understand good practice in integrated care and how the Department could develop a more balanced set of measures of success in this area.</p>

For earlier financial years, expenditure on legal fees was included in ‘other’ expenditure, and cannot be separately identified.
