unstar this property answer text <br /><p>NHS England is encouraging clinical commissioning groups to work with local practices to target people at risk of atrial fibrillation (AF). Innovative approaches such as pulse testing at flu clinics and by some dentists are being used to identify AF in older people. The NHS Health Check programme’s best practice guidance also recommends a pulse check is carried out as part of the process of taking a blood pressure reading. People found to have an irregular pulse rhythm should be referred to the general practitioner for further investigation.</p><br /><p>The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) published an updated guideline on AF in June 2014. This offers evidence-based advice on the care and treatment of people with AF and includes recommendations on diagnosis. In July 2015 NICE also published a quality standard on AF.</p><br /><p>In addition to its clinical guideline on AF, NICE has published technology appraisal guidance on a number of new oral anticoagulants (NOACs), approving them for certain patients.</p><br /><p>There is a legal requirement on commissioners to provide funding for treatments and drugs recommended in NICE technology appraisal guidance within three months of the guidance being published.This is enshrined in the NHS Constitution as a right to NICE-approved drugs.</p><br /><p>A <a href="https://www.nice.org.uk/resource/CG180/pdf/c/cg180-atrial-fibrillation-nic-consensus-statement-on-the-use-of-noacs?id=gvyb3hjdqrcjtn6ytpwx3ydb64" target="_blank">consensus statement</a> by the <a href="https://www.nice.org.uk/News/Article/new-collaborative-aims-to-increase-nice-guidance-uptake" target="_blank">NICE Implementation Collaborative</a> was published alongside NICE’s updated guideline in June 2014. This addresses some of the barriers to implementing NICE’s recommendations on prescribing NOACs.</p><br /><p>The need to reduce variation and strengthen compliance of the uptake of NICE technology appraisals was identified in <em>Innovation Health and Wealth</em>, published in December 2011. In response, NHS England and the Health and Social Care Information Centre now publishes on a quarterly basis an Innovation Scorecard to enable commissioners to benchmark their own position and increase transparency to patients and the public. This assists the NHS in the identification of variation and the adoption of treatments such as NOACs that are recommended in NICE technology appraisals. In addition, NHS England advises that it expects practitioners to consider anticoagulant treatments in line with NICE guidelines.</p><p>Some progress is being made. The uptake of NOACs across England has doubled in recent years from 45,708 per 100,000 of the resident population in 2013-14 to 126,845 in 2014-15.</p><br /><p><del class="ministerial">No assessment has been made of the number of strokes related to AF could be prevented each year through the roll-out of Guidance on Risk Assessment and Stroke Prevention for Atrial Fibrillation in primary care. However, in 2014, an economic analysis estimated that if all eligible patients at high risk were managed according to the NICE AF guidelines, an additional 11,600 AF related strokes per year could be avoided.</del></p><br /><p><del class="ministerial">Copies of the guidance referred to have been placed in the Library.</del></p><p><ins class="ministerial"></ins></p><p><ins class="ministerial">No assessment has been made of the number of strokes related to AF could be prevented each year through the roll-out of Guidance on Risk Assessment and Stroke Prevention for Atrial Fibrillation (GRASP-AF) in primary care.

unstar this property answer text <p><br /></p><p>Child Death Overview Panels are the responsibility of Local Safeguarding Children’s Boards (LSCBs). LSCBs in England have a responsibility under the Children Act 2004 to conduct child death reviews for all under 18s who die and who were normally resident in their area. They are required to collect and analyse information relating to the deaths in order to identify:</p><br /><p>- any cases which may also require a serious case review;</p><p>- any matters affecting the safety and welfare of children in that area; and</p><p>- any wider public health or safety concerns arising from a particular death or patterns of death.</p><br /><p>Stillbirths are not within their legal statutory remit set out in the Act and there are no plans to extend this remit.</p><br /><p>We are however committed to reducing the number of stillbirths and want England to achieve the lowest rate of stillbirth and neonatal death in the world. The Department is currently working in partnership with the stillbirth charity Sands, and a range of key organisations including NHS England to take forward a programme of work on stillbirth prevention. Reducing stillbirth and infant mortality and improving the safety of maternity services improvement areas for the NHS in the NHS Outcomes Framework. In addition, the Department provided start-up funding for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists’ ‘Each Baby Counts’ programme, which aims to reduce stillbirths, early neonatal deaths and brain injuries due to incidents in labour in the United Kingdom by 50% by 2020.</p><br /><p><ins class="ministerial">NHS England has asked Baroness Julia Cumberlege to lead a major review of maternity services to modernise care for women and babies across the country, as first set out in NHS England’s Five Year Forward View.</ins></p>
