star this property answer text <p>The United Kingdom has a long-established and globally-recognised track record of assessing the price of new, innovative medicines by their clinical benefit and value, rather than by their development costs or international reference prices.</p><p>The UK will engage constructively with the talks at the World Health Assembly to achieve the best outcome for people here and globally, including in low and middle income countries. Pricing arrangements are the responsibility of Member States and are highly context specific, but the Department supports information sharing and mutual learning initiatives, where appropriate, in seeking to improve value for money for country procurement budgets.</p> more like this

All of the patient results will have been returned to the NHS by the end of the year.</p><p>Under the Data Protection Legislation, participants in the 100,000 Genomes Project can request their genomic and clinical data. However, a whole genome sequence is around 3 billion letters long and written in code so it is very difficult to interpret. Genomics England can provide access to a visual representation on request or provide access to the raw data.

In addition, cardiac aspects of 22q deletion syndrome are specifically included in the curriculum for paediatric cardiology.</p><p> </p><p>There are 32 immunology centres accredited or working towards accreditation with the Quality in Primary Immunodeficiency Services programme including a number of paediatric immunology centres located across the United Kingdom, which provide services for patients affected by the disease. Such accreditation processes means that specialist expertise can be more readily available across the country and provide access to the services need in the diagnosis of this disease.</p> more like this
