star this property answer text <p>In 2017 the Department consulted on proposals for fixed recoverable costs (FRC) in claims of up to £25,000 damages, for which claimant legal costs are most likely to be disproportionately high relative to damages awarded. The Department published a summary of responses to the consultation in February 2018.</p><p>Following the consultation by the Department in 2017 and Sir Rupert Jackson’s recommendation in July 2017 to control the legal costs of these cases, the Department and the Ministry of Justice commissioned the independent Civil Justice Council (CJC) to draw up a new process for clinical negligence claims of up to £25,000 damages, with proposals for FRC for these cases.</p><p>The CJC has set up a working party to develop proposals, with input from claimant and defendant solicitors and others, including the Society of Clinical Injury Lawyers and Action Against Medical Accidents. The Department will consider the CJC’s recommendations when its report is published and will consult on any resulting proposals for FRC for these cases before implementation.</p><p>In view of the CJC’s role to lead work on proposals taking account of stakeholder views, the Department has not made its own assessment of the proposals or recommendations from the Society of Clinical Injury Lawyers or Action Against Medical Accidents.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department’s National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) budget for 2019/20 is just over £1 billion and welcomes funding applications for research into any aspect of human health. The NIHR funds research projects, training and research infrastructure. Applications are subject to peer review and judged in open competition, with awards being made on the basis of the importance of the topic to patients and health and care services, value for money and scientific quality.</p><p>The NIHR also is a co-funder of Health Data Research UK who are committed to uniting the United Kingdom’s health data to enable discoveries and ensure that every health and care interaction and research endeavour will be enhanced by access to large scale data and advanced analytics. The NIHR also supports a number of initiatives to help researchers to access health data, samples and to identify participants for research.</p><p>The future of budgets outside of the NHS England resource settlement, including capital budgets for research and development, will be confirmed later this year at the Spending Review 2019.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Health Education England (HEE)’s technology enhanced learning (TEL) Programme has developed a national framework for the delivery of simulation-based education. This framework is now in place and being applied across the country.</p><p>Part of this work has involved extensive stakeholder engagement and through this engagement, a number of examples of where virtual reality has successfully been used to support learning have emerged. In particular, HEE East of England is piloting facilitated virtual reality learning for 1,200 Foundation Programme trainee doctors in 20 critical emergency scenarios in the East of England. This enables real time practice in a safe simulated environment with both facilitated supervised training and also personal unlimited access. A careful evaluation will be carried out, looking at both the trainee experience of learning through virtual reality and their subsequent improvement in confidence in urgent care management.</p><p>In addition, the TEL Programme has supported the development of a virtual reality lab in Torbay, which is now in its second year. Successful examples of virtual reality in distraction therapy have emerged, particularly in paediatrics and podiatry, with clear benefits to patients undergoing the clinical intervention and costs savings because of the reduction in general anaesthetics.</p><p>The TEL Programme has now set up an academic partnership with Leeds Institute and through this partnership, will be developing a set of principles for the use of virtual reality in education and training. Through this work, the TEL Programme will be developing a cohesive approach for evaluation of outcomes, which will then enable consistency in evidence gathering.</p>
