star this property answer text <p>A total of 8,243 suspected adverse drug reaction (ADR) reports with human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccines have been reported to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), via the Yellow Card Scheme, up to 3 June 2015.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>To date, more than 8 million doses of HPV vaccine have been given across the United Kingdom as part of the routine immunisation programme. The MHRA does not hold data on age-specific vaccine usage, and therefore age-specific reporting rates cannot be calculated.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>It is important to note that a Yellow Card report is not proof of a side effect occurring, but a suspicion by the reporter that the vaccine may have been the cause. Yellow Card data cannot be used as a reliable indicator of the frequency of suspected ADRs to vaccines or medicines. The level of ADR reporting may fluctuate between given years due to a variety of reasons such as a medicine being new (reporting rates are generally higher when a product is first introduced), stimulated interest/publicity and variations in exposure to the medicine.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The possible known side effects, and the frequency, are listed in the product information which is provided with the vaccines. The vast majority of the 8,243 ADRs relate to the known risks of vaccination that are well-described in the available product information. The proportion of suspected ADRs for HPV vaccines that were reported as serious (32%) is less than the proportion reported as serious for other routinely used vaccines (68% overall) during the same time period. The expected benefits in protecting against HPV-related mortality and disease outweigh the known side effects of HPV vaccine.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The following table provides a breakdown of UK suspected spontaneous ADRs received via the Yellow Card Scheme in association with the HPV vaccine.

The MHRA asks reporters to select one of the following criteria by ticking the appropriate box on the Yellow Card: (1) patient died due to reaction; (2) life threatening; (3) resulted in hospitalisation or prolonged inpatient hospitalisation; (4) congenital abnormality; and (5) involved persistent or significant disability or incapacity; or (6) if the reaction was deemed medically significant. In addition to this, seriousness of reaction terms has also been defined by the MHRA in its medical dictionary. Therefore an ADR report can be serious because the reporter considers the reaction to be serious or because the reaction term itself is considered serious in the MHRA medical dictionary.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>All women regardless of their wealth or immigration status are encouraged to contact their maternity services as soon as they know they are pregnant for a full assessment of their health, risk factors and choices so that a personalised plan of care can be prepared. The latest data shows that over 96% of pregnant women in England received their full health and risk assessment before 12 weeks and 6 days between April and June 2014. Early access to maternity services helps tackle the negative impact of health inequalities from the start of life and supports good health and well-being in mother and baby.</p><p> </p><p>Women with complex social factors do not always access maternity services early, or attend regularly for antenatal care and poorer outcomes are consequently reported for mother and baby. Maternity services need to be proactive in engaging all women. To support National Health Service maternity services engagement with pregnant women with complex social factors, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence has published clinical guidelines on pregnancy and complex social factors, which describes how access to care can be improved and contact with antenatal care maintained.</p><p> </p><p>Maternity services feature prominently in the key objectives set out in the Mandate between the Government and NHS England. All women, regardless of their wealth or immigration status, should have a named midwife responsible for ensuring she receives personalised care throughout pregnancy, childbirth and during the postnatal period. To help reduce unwarranted variation in service delivery and encourage innovation, NHS England has established Maternity and Children Strategic Clinical Networks.<strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p>Entitlement to free NHS hospital treatment in England is based on being ‘ordinarily resident’ in the United Kingdom. Except in rare circumstances, nationals of countries outside the European Economic Area must also have ‘indefinite leave to remain’ in the UK in order to be ordinarily resident here. Anyone not ordinarily resident here is subject to the NHS (Charges to Overseas Visitors) Regulations 2015, and will be charged for any treatment they receive unless an exemption from charge category applies.</p><p> </p><p>Chargeable treatment which is considered by clinicians to be immediately necessary, must never be withheld from an overseas visitor. Guidance to NHS trusts makes clear that all maternity services – including routine ante-natal treatment - should be regarded as immediately necessary. This means that no woman will be denied maternity services, even if she cannot pay in advance, although she will still be charged for treatment and expected to pay later.</p><p> </p>

We believe that, in another act of appalling barbarity, ISIL executed at least 15 of the hostages, and that 23 Assyrian Christians have since been released following the payment of ransom money by the families, and another two freed when the area was liberated at the end of May. We remain concerned for the remaining hostages, most of whom are women, children and elderly people. We support the UN Security Council Statement condemning the abductions and demanding the Christians immediate release.</p><p>The UK is committed to defeating ISIL, an organisation that has no place in today’s world. We will continue to work with the Global Coalition of more than sixty countries to ensure that ISIL no longer poses a threat to the people of the region, to international stability or to our own national security.</p>
