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>The Government is clear that the decision to prescribe a cannabis-based product for medicinal use should only be made where it is clinically appropriate and in the best interest of the patient. This will be subject to local National Health Service governance and funding arrangements for prescribing unlicensed medicines, and patients will not be able to be prescribed such products by their general practitioner – and would require referral to a specialist clinician on the basis of clinical need.</p><p>The evidence base for cannabis-based products for medicinal use is still developing. However, the changes to the law are designed to encourage further research and the National Institute for Health Research has issued two calls for research proposals to rapidly advance knowledge in this area and remains open to research proposals outside of these calls in this priority area.</p><p>Interim clinical guidance, issued by the Royal College of Physicians, British Paediatric Neurology Association and Association of British Neurologists is based on the best available international evidence and reflects clinical guidance that has been published in other jurisdictions. This guidance will be updated and replaced in October 2019 by that commissioned from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The commissioning and configuration of dermatology services in England is a local matter. The majority of patients with dermatological disorders are managed in primary and community care and the local National Health Service is best placed to make decisions that ensure services meet the needs of resident populations in the most appropriate way.</p><p> </p><p>The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence has published guidance on a number of dermatological conditions, including eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, to support commissioners to plan and deliver services for local populations. ‘Atopic eczema in under 12’s: diagnosis and management’ includes recommendations that healthcare professionals should adopt a holistic approach at each consultation, taking into account severity of a condition and the impact this may have on quality of life.</p><p> </p><p>Healthcare professionals should be aware that all categories of severity of atopic eczema, even mild, can have a negative impact on psychological and psychosocial wellbeing and quality of life and that assessment of wellbeing should be carried out at every consultation. Furthermore, the guidance recommends using validated tools in the management of patients, such as Children's Dermatology Life Quality Index, Infants' Dermatitis Quality of Life Index or Dermatitis Family Impact questionnaire for quality of life. Where quality of life and psychosocial wellbeing has not improved despite treatment and improvement, patients should be referred for psychological advice.
