star this property answer text <p>Two Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccines are licensed for use in the United Kingdom: M-M-RVaxPro and Priorix. Both vaccines are on the National Health Service’s routine immunisation schedule. The quality, safety and efficacy of both M-M-RVaxPro and Priorix have been evaluated before they were given a Marketing Authorisation in Europe, and the Marketing Authorisation Holder for each vaccines is legally required to submit periodic safety update reports to the regulator, which are documents intended to provide an evaluation of the risk-benefit balance of a medicinal product at defined time points after its authorisation. The sites at which the products are manufactured are also required to undergo periodic inspections to ensure that they comply with Good Manufacturing Practices. Each batch of vaccines is tested by an official medicines control laboratory (OMCL). OMCL testing is independent of and in addition to the manufacturer’s testing. These procedures ensure that the MMR vaccines available in the UK are safe and efficacious and that the manufacturers/Marketing Authorisation holders are held accountable for their products.</p><p>A European Public Assessment Report (EPAR) for M-M-RVaxPro is available at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.ema.europa.eu/en/documents/scientific-discussion/m-m-rvaxpro-epar-scientific-discussion_en.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.ema.europa.eu/en/documents/scientific-discussion/m-m-rvaxpro-epar-scientific-discussion_en.pdf</a></p><p>Priorix was approved before public assessment reports were a requirement. The EPAR for M-M-RVaxPro contains a general summary of the manufacturing information that was provided during the assessment process; however, the specific details of the manufacturing process are confidential.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In addition to mainstream mental health services, NHS England commissions two bespoke services for veterans experiencing mental health difficulties.</p><p>The first is the Transition, Intervention and Liaison Service (TILS) which supports serving personnel who need additional support as they are leaving the armed forces and veterans who have mental health issues. 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>

Pregabalin is recognised to be associated with a range of possible side effects including dizziness, somnolence, loss of consciousness, confusion and mental impairment which could explain the increased risk of injuries and traffic accidents identified in this new study.</p><p>The product information for pregabalin currently contains relevant warnings regarding suicidal ideation and behaviour, possible side effects, as well as the possible effects on driving and operating machinery.

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>
