star this property answer text <p>The Department’s National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) welcomes funding applications for research into any aspect of human health, including congenital heart defects in babies. It is not usual practice to ring-fence funds for particular topics or conditions. Applications are subject to peer review and judged in open competition, with awards being made on the basis of the importance of the topic to patients and health and care services, value for money and scientific quality. In all disease areas, the amount of NIHR funding depends on the volume and quality of scientific activity.</p><p> </p><p>The NIHR continues to fund and support a range of research into congenital heart defects in babies, including the following projects:</p><p>- MRI-augmented guidance for X-ray fluoroscopic paediatric cardiovascular interventions (£415,000);</p><p>- Mixed Reality Imaging of Congenital Heart Disease to Improve Surgical Decision-Making (£453,000); and</p><p>- Infant deaths in the United Kingdom community following successful cardiac surgery - building the evidence base for optimal surveillance (£22.800).</p><p>Information on individual projects funded by the NIHR can be found at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><strong><a href="https://www.journalslibrary.nihr.ac.uk/programmes/" target="_blank">https://www.journalslibrary.nihr.ac.uk/programmes/</a></strong></p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the valuable contribution made by carers who spend a significant proportion of their life providing unpaid support to friends and family members, including those who are ill or have disabilities. That is why the Government is committed to continuing to support carers, who are vital partners in the health and care system, and will continue to support carers in a way that supports their own health and wellbeing, employment and other life chances.</p><p> </p><p>The Department will shortly be publishing a Carers Action Plan, setting out a cross-Government programme of targeted work to support carers over the next two years. Within the Action Plan there will be a chapter dedicated to carers in employment which will cover improving working practices, flexible working and returning to work.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has also been working with the Timewise Foundation on a project to promote best practice in the use of employment flexibilities to support carers. Last month, Timewise launched a new Carers’ Hub – a one-stop shop for support, advice and flexible job opportunities to help carers balance their responsibilities with fulfilling careers, as well as offering best practice guidance on flexible working and flexible hiring practices, in order to help employers find and keep talented people who want or need to work in this way.</p><p> </p><p>More information about the Carers’ hub can be found at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.timewisejobs.co.uk/caring/" target="_blank">https://www.timewisejobs.co.uk/caring/</a></p>
