star this property answer text <p>The priority for the Primary Care Network (PCN) overall will be to ensure that it builds on the core of current primary care services by enabling greater provision of proactive, personalised, coordinated and more integrated health and social care. PCNs will take part in the Network Contract Directed Enhanced Service from July 2019. This provides funding for additional capacity in general practice, extended access and clinical leadership. The priorities for individual PCNs will be determined locally by their Clinical Director and leadership team, in close conjunction with their local authority and clinical commissioning group. These priorities must be within the context of the seven service specifications that are being published and which will set out what all networks have to deliver. The seven are focused on areas where PCNs can have significant impact against the ‘triple aim’ of improving health and saving lives, for example from strokes, heart attacks and cancer; improving the quality of care for people with multiple morbidities; and helping to make the National Health Service more sustainable, for example, by helping to reduce avoidable hospital admissions.</p><p>The specifications cover the following topics:</p><p> </p><p>- Structured medications review and optimisation;</p><p>- Enhanced health in care homes, to implement the vanguard model;</p><p>- Anticipatory care requirements for high need patients typically experiencing several long-term conditions, joint with community services;</p><p>- Personalised Care, to implement the NHS Comprehensive Model;</p><p>- Supporting early cancer diagnosis;</p><p>- Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) prevention and diagnosis; and</p><p>- Tackling neighbourhood inequalities.</p><p> </p><p>The framework can be viewed at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/gp-contract-2019.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/gp-contract-2019.pdf</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>General practitioner (GP) practices within Leicester have been working together over the last few months to develop their proposed Primary Care Network (PCN) footprints. Initial proposals were discussed by Leicester City Clinical Commissioning Group’s management and lay member group and GP Reference Group in April 2019. A list of proposed PCNs and their member practices was published in May and is available at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://3xmatc1p0cnc3crfv93ovogp-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/Paper-AOB-update-on-Primary-Care-Networks.pdf" target="_blank">https://3xmatc1p0cnc3crfv93ovogp-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/Paper-AOB-update-on-Primary-Care-Networks.pdf</a></p><p>PCNs will be formally established for 1 July.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The NHS Long Term Plan sets out clearly the need to reduce inequalities in health that different groups of the population currently face.</p><p>The NHS Long Term Plan will give 370,000 adults and older adults with severe mental illness greater choice and control over their care through new models of integrated primary and community mental health care.</p><p>In addition, the first ever cross-Government suicide prevention workplan sets out an ambitious programme for every local authority, every National Health Service trust and every prison will have a plan in place to prevent suicide. We will invest up to £600,000 to support local authorities to strengthen their suicide prevention plans and implement the recommendations identified by the independent evaluation of local plans.</p><p>The learning disabilities health check scheme is designed to encourage general practices to identify patients aged 14 and over with learning disabilities, to maintain a learning disabilities 'health check' register and offer individuals an annual health check, which will include producing a health action plan. Such checks are intended to ensure that any undetected health conditions are identified earlier and that on-going treatment and care is appropriate to the individual’s needs. The NHS Long Term Plan commits to improve uptake of the scheme so that at least 75% of those eligible have a health check each year.</p><p>In addition, the Learning Disabilities Mortality Review Programme supports local areas to review the deaths of people with learning disabilities and to use the information to build up a detailed picture of key improvements needed, both locally and at a national level, to reduce the inequality in life expectancy between people with a learning disability, and those without. The learning from the programme is being used to inform programmes of work to address key mortality issues such as sepsis, constipation, and cancer.</p><p>Regarding black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) groups, the Long Term Plan also highlights improvements to continuity of midwifery care for women from the BAME community; improving the Diabetes Prevention Programme; and improving bowel screening rates for people from minority ethnic groups. In addition to these, BAME communities will benefit from the wide range of programmes set out in the Long Term Plan.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The British Government is deeply concerned by reports that hospitals in Khartoum were being controlled and targeted by Sudanese security forces. It is unacceptable for injured civilians to be prevented access to medical facilities. These are not the actions of responsible and credible authorities representing the people of Sudan.</p><p>On 6 June, I summoned the Sudanese Ambassador to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to express our grave concerns at the use of all forms of violence against civilians and medical professionals, by the Sudanese authorities. This was reiterated in a most recent statement issued by the EU Foreign Affairs Council (FAC) on 17 June, which stated attacks against hospitals, medical staff and patients must stop, and that any obstacles to the timely delivery of humanitarian assistance needs to be removed immediately.</p><p>I had set out the UK's position at the FAC that called for the human rights of all Sudanese people to be respected, and the resumption of the political process leading to an agreed peaceful transfer of power to a civilian-led government, as demanded by the Sudanese people.</p>

This gives a net profit figure, which is treated as the self-employed earnings total in the UC calculation. Any drawings from business to personal accounts or, where a claimant has incorporated their business, payment of salary from their company to their personal account, is disregarded in this calculation to avoid double counting.</p><p> </p><p>When a claim is made to Universal Credit the Department will, on the basis of the information provided by the claimant, assess whether the claimant may reasonably be expected to work.

Gainfully self-employed claimants with a MIF applied to their claim are free from requirements to seek other work and are free to undertake those activities that they consider will maximise their profit including decisions about when and how to work most effectively.</p><p> </p><p>As we announced in the Autumn Budget 2018, we are extending the 12-month start-up period where claimants are exempt from the Minimum Income Floor to all gainfully self-employed claimants who are new to Universal Credit.
