star this property answer text <p>The Government recommends eating some meat, fish, eggs, beans and other non-dairy sources of protein as part of a healthy balanced diet. Government advice is that we should eat on average no more than 70 grams of red meat a day due to the increased risk of bowel cancer. It also recommends eating two portions of fish a week, one of which should be oily, as oily fish provide long chain omega-3 fatty acids, which may help to prevent heart disease.</p><p>Dietary recommendations for meat and fish consumption are published in the national food model, the <em>Eatwell Guide</em> and its supporting messages. The <em>Eatwell Guide</em> provides visual representation on national guidance of how a balanced diet looks. A copy of the <em>Eatwell Guide</em> is attached.</p><p>Supporting documentation includes the <em>Government Dietary Recommendations: Government recommendations for energy and nutrients for males and females aged 1-18 years and 19+ years</em>, which outlines the breakdown of calorie, vitamin and mineral intake for different age groups. A copy of the <em>Government Dietary Recommendations</em> is attached.</p>

Clinical commissioning groups must ensure that they secure health services to meet the needs of disabled children to a reasonable extent.</p><p>Children’s social care is the responsibility of the Department for Education. All disabled children are regarded as children ‘in need’ under the Children Act 1989 and may receive social care from the local authority. The Children and Families Act 2014 placed a duty on local authorities to assess whether a parent carer in their area has needs for support.</p> more like this

The plan will set out how the NHS will develop over the coming years, underpinned by a five-year funding offer which will see the NHS budget grow by over £20.5 billion a year in real terms by 2023-24. It provides an excellent opportunity to look at how HIV and other services can be further improved over the next decade.

Consequently, there are a large number of biomarkers, many of which are used in standard testing practice and so are not specifically referred to in NICE guidance. Multiple and combinations of biomarkers are often used to provide prognostic information and companies developing tests often create their own combinations.</p><p>As many tests look for multiple biomarkers for a single purpose and many tests in standard practice provide prognostic information, NICE is unable to provide categorical information on prognostic tests.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In response to the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman report, NHS England has convened a working group with NHS Improvement, Health Education England (HEE), the Department and other partners to co-ordinate actions being taken in response to the recommendations, taking them into account in planning for improvements to adult eating disorder services.</p><p>Foundation training covers core generic skills which will include nutrition and all its facets, one of which is eating disorders. Currently, around 47% of foundation programmes in England offer four-month posts in psychiatry, and management of eating disorders and associated conditions is included in the curriculum and learning objectives for such posts.</p><p>The Foundation Programme ensures that newly qualified doctors demonstrate their ability to learn in the workplace, develop their clinical and professional skills in the workplace in readiness for core, specialty or general practice training.</p><p>Increasing psychiatry posts and training opportunities in foundation is part of HEE’s current review of the Foundation Programme. There are quality management systems in place to monitor HEE’s performance against those objectives.</p><p><strong> </strong></p>

star this property answer text <p>The Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) programme aims to improve the quality of surgical and medical care within the National Health Service by working with frontline clinicians to identify and reduce unwarranted variations in service delivery and clinical practice. Since it was set up in 2016, the programme has been expanded to clinically review 35 surgical and medical specialties.</p><p>In terms of tracking progress, the programme measures quality improvement in key outcomes or practices. Since 2016/17, the programme has delivered quality and efficiency improvements, shortening waiting times for surgery, reducing costly cancellations and delays to elective procedures, aiding trusts to meet performance targets, and reducing spend on costly consultancy services.</p><p>Since its establishment as a national programme in 2016, NHS RightCare has actively worked with every health system in England to transform services over a wide range of pathways and reduce unwarranted variation. NHS RightCare underpins its activity with robust evaluation to understand the change and impact of local projects through robust planning and modelling. Nationally, this ensures the programme can report on change in reducing variation in terms of finance, activity and health outcomes via the Clinical Commissioning Group Improvement Assessment Framework.</p><p> </p><p>The Prime Minister has asked the NHS to develop a long-term plan for the service, setting out how the NHS will develop over the coming years supported by the significant additional funding. This provides an excellent opportunity to look at how reducing variation can be accelerated over the next decade. The plan is currently in development and will be published later in the year.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Clinical trial recruitment is important to the United Kingdom economy, especially in cancer research. For example, an independent report, commissioned by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network (CRN) and produced by KPMG’s Economics team, provided an assessment of the economic impact of the NIHR Clinical Research Network’s activities to support clinical research in the UK. The report estimated the gross value added and employment in the UK from CRN supported clinical research activity. It estimated that in the period April 2014 to March 2015 (financial year 2014/15) this activity generated a total of £2.4 billion gross value added and almost 39,500 jobs. Studies on cancer comprise a major part of CRN activity.

One of the main purposes of the NIHR is to initiate studies speedily, and deliver them to time and target. Therefore timely molecular testing is important.

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to supporting carers to provide care as they would wish, and to do so in a way that supports their own health and wellbeing and other life chances.</p><p>The Long Term Plan is currently in development and is due to be published later this year. The content of the plan has yet to be determined, but it is anticipated that plan will acknowledge the important role played by unpaid carers.</p><p>In addition, we set out our commitments to supporting carers in the short-term through the <em>Carers Action Plan 2018-2020: Supporting carers today</em>, published in June. The Plan includes commitments from across Government and the National Health Service. For example, the NHS England and the Care Quality Commission are working together to develop quality standards for general practitioner surgeries to demonstrate how effective they are in identifying and supporting carers. A copy of the <em>Carers Action Plan</em> is attached. We recognise that there is still more to do and that is why the forthcoming Adult Social Care Green Paper will include a focus on how society supports carers as a vital part of a sustainable health and social care system so that they are properly valued, recognised and supported to provide care in a way that supports their own health and wellbeing.</p>
