star this property answer text <p>The Department is currently reviewing the six conclusions in the Royal Society for Public Health’s report <em>Life on debt row</em>.</p><p>The Government recognises that experiencing debt problems or a financial crisis can have a wide impact on a person’s health and mental and social wellbeing. The Government takes a comprehensive and strategic approach to reducing health inequalities that addresses the wider causes of ill-health, promotes healthier lifestyles for all and tackles differences in access and outcomes from health and public health services, underpinned by legal duties. Action is led locally to ensure the solutions put in place reflect the needs of individual communities.</p><p>The 2017 manifesto committed the Government to implement a Breathing Space scheme, with the right safeguards to prevent abuse, so that someone in serious problem debt may apply for legal protection from further interest, charges and enforcement action for a period of up to six weeks. Where appropriate, they would be offered a statutory repayment plan to help pay back their debts in a manageable way. A call to evidence to support development of the scheme was conducted between October 2017 and January 2018.</p><p>The National Health Service already provides some services to people who may be experiencing the symptoms of debt problems or financial difficulties. We are aware that some general practitioner (GP) practices signpost patients to debt advice services as part of their care and some practices have arrangements in place with local Citizens Advice Bureaux and debt advice services to provide outreach support in primary care. Mental health services, including Improving Access to Psychological Therapies services, may also signpost patients to debt advice services as part of their care.</p><p>In January 2017, the Prime Minister announced that the Government would review the practice of GPs charging patients experiencing debt issues to complete Mental Health Evidence Forms when they require medical evidence for their creditors. The Department is working with the Money and Mental Health Policy Institute and a range of stakeholders from the financial and debt advice sectors and the British Medical Association to undertake the review, which we will publish in due course.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The inclusion of weighting for deprivation, need due to age, and health inequalities in the setting of clinical commissioning group (CCG) allocations contributes to ensuring that National Health Service funding is distributed equitably across England to meet the health care needs of the population. CCGs have a duty under the NHS Act 2006 to act with regard to the need to reduce inequalities in access to, and outcomes from, health services.</p><p>Since 2013 local authorities have received a public health grant to support them in improving the health of local people. This is primarily allocated based on historical NHS spend which tended to be greater in areas with the highest levels of health need. As a condition of the grant they receive local authorities must have due regard to reducing inequalities in outcomes from their health services.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The importance of effective prevention was recognised in the National Health Service Five Year Forward View and has been reinforced in the Government’s mandate to NHS England. One of the six principles set for the new NHS long-term plan and funding settlement is “focusing on the prevention of ill-health, so people live longer, healthier, happier lives and take greater responsibility for their own care”.</p><p>In addition, the annual NHS public health functions agreement (under section 7A of the NHS Act 2006) sets out a range of public health and preventative services to be commissioned by NHS England on behalf of the Secretary of State for Health. Ring-fenced NHS funding of £1,205 million is allocated for these functions in 2018/19.</p><p>The Better Care Fund (BCF) requires local authorities and clinical commissioning groups to pool budgets for the purposes of integrated care. Local areas have to submit plans that comply with four national conditions including maintaining the NHS contribution to adult social care in line with inflation. The Government’s policy framework for integration and the BCF envisages integrated, preventative, person-centred care becoming the norm, so that people can be supported to live at home for longer and avoid the need for commissioned health and care services.</p>
