star this property answer text <p>Cancer is a priority for this Government and impetus has been given to ensuring that more patients are seen and treated for cancer. The drive to improve survival rates through earlier diagnosis, therefore, has meant that demand and activity have been rising for a number of years. This has resulted in more people being referred and diagnosed than ever before.</p><p>Improving diagnosis and ensuring better outcomes for patients diagnosed with cancer is a priority for Durham Dales, Easington and Sedgefield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), and County Durham is consistently better in terms of coverage than the national average for all three cancer screening programmes. The CCG is working collaboratively with colleagues from public health, primary care and secondary care on a strategic piece of work, with a view that a multi-disciplinary approach is necessary in order to address inequalities in cancer.</p><p> </p><p>The CCG has developed the Action Plan ‘County Durham Reducing Health Inequalities in Cancer Action Plan for 2018-19’.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The circumstances we are born in to and the conditions in which we live all have a major bearing on our health and wellbeing. The Government remains committed to tackling poverty so that we can make a lasting difference to long-term outcomes. There is clear evidence about the importance of work in tackling poverty now and in the future. Households where all adults are in work are around six times less likely to be in relative poverty than adults in a household where nobody works. The Government has lifted 400,000 people out of absolute poverty since 2010 and the number of people in employment has increased by over 3.7 million, there are around one million fewer workless households and around 667,000 fewer children in such households.</p> more like this

Should a situation arise for the evaluation of multiple technologies for the same indication within the HST process, the feasibility and suitability of this would be considered at that point. Any such process would closely reflect the established multiple technology appraisal process, which is designed to appraise more than one technology.</p> more like this

NHS England has advised that there are currently over 200 practices participating in the programme. However, data is not held about the number of children who have benefitted since its launch.</p><p>NHS England has advised that the Starting Well programme board has taken a decision not to publish an interim report but anticipates that the full report will be published by the end of this year.</p><p>NHS England has also developed Starting Well Core, an offer made available to all local dental commissioners in England. The aim is to promote early preventative care for children aged 0-2 as well as increasing dental access and attendance. NHS England has confirmed that as of 31 March 2019, approximately 1,400 NHS England dental practices were participating in Starting Well Core. NHS England advises that participation has been defined as any practice holding a contract to deliver primary care dental services where the local commissioning team had varied the contract to remunerate for Units of Dental Activity delivered in excess of 102% (up to a maximum of 104%) of the National Health Service contract value, attributable to children aged 0-2 years, for the 2018/19 financial year.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Infertility is recognised as a disease by all mainstream international health organisations. In the United Kingdom, infertility affects one in seven of all couples of child-bearing age. It can cause great psychological distress for those seeking to start a family, if not addressed. There are effective treatments and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Fertility Guidelines set out clearly how the treatment can be offered in the most clinically and cost-effective way. The Government recognises that there is variation in the commissioning of National Health Service fertility services across England. Patients with infertility have every right to expect NHS services based on clinical need.</p><p>Clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) have a statutory responsibility to commission healthcare services that meet the needs of their whole population, including fertility services. The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority’s guidance for commissioners is a new tool to help them implement NICE Fertility Guidelines and use the benchmark price treatments.</p><p>I wrote to the Chief Executives of all CCGs in England on 17 June 2019 to promote the guidance and benchmark price, and strongly encourage them to implement fully the NICE Fertility Guidelines.</p>

The TILS is also the entry point to the Complex Treatment Service (CTS), the second service commissioned by NHS England. The CTS is able to provide a range of more intensive care and treatment for veterans with military related complex mental health difficulties, many of whom will have experienced trauma. Veterans can often access bespoke and quicker referral pathways such as TILS, which is commissioned to provide an initial assessment within two weeks.</p><p>In December last year, NHS England also announced an extra £10 million to expand the already established Veterans’ Mental Health TILS and the Veterans’ Mental Health CTS, as well as seeking to close the gaps in current mental health provision to capture those individuals that are nearing crisis.</p>
