star this property answer text <p>Later this year, the Government will begin the roll-out of new Rapid Diagnostic Centres across the country to upgrade and bring together the latest diagnostic equipment and expertise, which focus on diagnosing cancers where patients often present with non-specific symptoms, like pancreatic cancer, and may go to their general practitioner (GP) many times before being sent for tests.</p><p> </p><p>This is part of the NHS Long Term Plan that was published in January 2019. It sets a new ambition that, by 2028, the proportion of cancers diagnosed at stages 1 and 2 will rise from around half now to three-quarters of cancer patients. Achieving this will mean that, from 2028, 55,000 more people each year will survive their cancer for at least five years after diagnosis. We will build on work to raise greater awareness of symptoms of cancer, lower the threshold for referral by GPs, accelerate access to diagnosis and treatment and maximise the number of cancers that we identify through screening. This includes the use of personalised and risk stratified screening and beginning to test the family members of cancer patients where they are at increased risk of cancer.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Hyperkalaemia usually occurs in patients with renal impairment which can be acute or chronic. In patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), several factors increase susceptibility to hyperkalaemia including a high dietary potassium intake relative to residual renal function. When patients with CKD have other risk factors, for example treatment with drugs that interfere with the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, the risk of hyperkalaemia is further increased. Clinical presentation of hyperkalaemia is highly variable with some patients presenting with an acute illness whilst others may be asymptomatic.</p><p> </p><p>Although not completely preventable, the risk of developing hyperkalaemia can be reduced. Clinical practice guidelines treatment of acute hyperkalaemia in adults, a collaboration between the Renal Association and Resuscitation Council UK that is endorsed by a range of organisations, including the College of Emergency Medicine and the Faculty of Intensive Care medicine, sets out evidence-based guidance on the management of the condition. It was developed to improve the treatment of acute hyperkalaemia and to reduce the risk of complications associated with hyperkalaemia and its treatment. The main measures in primary prevention in patients with CKD are regular blood monitoring, careful drug prescribing and dietary advice.

star this property answer text <p>The Department has made no such assessment. From December 2017 to March 2018, NHS England carried out a public consultation on reducing prescribing of over-the-counter medicines for minor, short-term health concerns, ‘Conditions for which over the counter items should not routinely be prescribed in primary care: A consultation on guidance for CCGs’ which can be found at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.engage.england.nhs.uk/consultation/over-the-counter-items-not-routinely-prescribed/" target="_blank">https://www.engage.england.nhs.uk/consultation/over-the-counter-items-not-routinely-prescribed/</a></p><p> </p><p>At the end of March 2018, NHS England published guidance to enable savings of up to £100 million for frontline care each year by curbing prescriptions for ‘over the counter’ medicines. The guidance does not affect prescribing of over the counter items for longer term or more complex conditions, or where minor illnesses are symptomatic or a side effect of something more serious.</p><p> </p><p>We are informed by NHS England that in the 12 months to January 2019, the total National Health Service spend in England on over the counter items was £449.4 million. This was a saving on total spend of £25.9 million from the corresponding figure for the 12 months to January 2018, which was £475.3 million. This saving does not account for the potential impact to the NHS from a reduced number of general practitioner appointments, for which no assessment has been made.</p>

star this property answer text <p>A serious shortage protocol is an additional tool to manage and mitigate medication shortages and may be used in the exceptional and rare situation when other measures have been exhausted or are likely to be ineffective. Any protocol would only be introduced if clinicians with expertise in the relevant area think it is appropriate. Pharmacists still have to use their professional discretion as to whether supplying against the protocol rather than the prescription is appropriate, or whether the patient needs to be referred back to their prescriber.</p><p> </p><p>As the explanatory memorandum of the amending Statutory Instrument acknowledges, protocols for therapeutic or generic equivalents will not be suitable for all medicines and patients. For example, those types of protocols would not be suitable for treatments for epilepsy or treatments requiring biological products where the medicines that are prescribed need to be prescribed by brand for clinical reasons. In these cases, patients would always be referred back to the prescriber for any decision about their treatment before any therapeutic or generic alternative is supplied.</p>
