The Department does not hold information about the volume available in Wakefield. All patients who require an epinephrine (adrenaline) auto-injector should now be able to obtain a device from their pharmacy. The Department continues to work very closely with all the manufacturers of epinephrine auto-injectors and can confirm that the supply situation continues to improve.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Applications for a Universal Credit advance payment can be made in person, by telephone or online depending on the claimant’s circumstances. Depending on the type of advance payment application, we will consider whether the claimant satisfies the eligibility conditions for receiving the advance. If the claimant is eligible we will agree the amount of the advance and the period over which the advance will be recovered from their future Universal Credit payments. If the claimant has made the application in person or by telephone, the outcome of the application is explained to the claimant face to face or over the phone and then their online journal is updated. If they have made the application online the outcome will be displayed on screen.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has taken a number of steps to ensure that advances meet the needs of claimants and that the recovery arrangements are personalised and reasonable. Affordability is managed by ensuring the recovery rate will not be more than the equivalent of 40% of the claimant’s standard allowance. The claimant is given the choice over the repayment period and it is explained to them exactly how much will be deducted each month depending on the option they choose. If the claimant is making the advance application online, these options are clearly displayed on screen for them to choose from.</p><p> </p><p>Help is available for those struggling to meet the recovery rate. In exceptional circumstances, recovery can be deferred for up to three months from the start of the recovery period. If the claimant tells us that due to unforeseen circumstances they are experiencing hardship and are having difficulty repaying the advance over the agreed recovery time, we would explain that repayment can be deferred by a maximum of three months.</p><p> </p><p>From October 2019 the maximum rate of deductions from a claimant’s standard allowance will be reduced from 40% to 30%. From October 2021 we are increasing the recovery period for advances from 12 to 16 months, further supporting those in financial need.</p><p> </p><p>Information about advances is available on the Gov.uk site at:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/universal-credit-advances" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/guidance/universal-credit-advances</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>There are risks and benefits ‎of testing for prostate cancer. There are side effects to many of the treatments for prostate cancer, such as impotence and incontinence, but, there is no doubt that, in some cases, if found early, ‎it could save lives. However, many of the men having tests and receiving treatment would not have any symptoms or problems relating to their cancers in their life.</p><p>The Prostate Cancer Risk Management Programme (PCRMP) supports men in making an informed choice on whether to be tested for prostate cancer. The PCRMP provides general practitioners and primary care professionals with information to counsel asymptomatic men aged 50 and over who ask about prostate specific antigen testing for prostate cancer.</p><p>Further information on the PCRMP is available at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/prostate-cancer-risk-management-programme-overview" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/guidance/prostate-cancer-risk-management-programme-overview</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>Research on health and social care continues to be funded by the Government through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).</p><p>The NIHR welcomes funding applications for research into any aspect of human health, including chronic pancreatitis. As with other major research funders, the NIHR does not ring-fence funds for particular topics or conditions. Applications for funding 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.</p><p>The NIHR’s support for research into chronic pancreatitis which is currently ongoing or recently concluded (in financial year 2018/19) includes one directly funded study, with a total award of £262,500, investigating the use of antioxidants and magnesium for the treatment of pain in hereditary and idiopathic chronic pancreatitis. In addition, the NIHR funded two studies through its early translational research infrastructure and five through the NIHR Clinical Research Network, which provides support for delivering research funded by the NIHR itself and other public, charity and industry research funders.</p>
