star this property question text To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what assessment has been made by his Department or NHS England of the effect of minor ailments services provided by community pharmacies on demand for the services of GP practices and other parts of the NHS; and what assessment he has made of the effect of planned reductions in funding for pharmacies on those services. more like this

star this property answer text <p>NHS England has taken account of the potential impact of a pharmacy minor ailments service on general practitioner services and other parts of the National Health Service. The findings of the Minor Ailment study (‘MINA’ study), conducted by the University of Aberdeen, in collaboration with NHS Grampian and the University of East Anglia, on behalf of Pharmacy Research UK in 2014, were considered. In addition, evaluations of local minor ailments schemes have continued to inform decision-making about local commissioning of such schemes.</p><p> </p><p>Community pharmacy is a vital part of the NHS and can play an even greater role. In the Spending Review the Government re-affirmed the need for the NHS to deliver £22 billion in efficiency savings by 2020/21 as set out in the NHS’s own plan, the Five Year Forward View. Community pharmacy is a core part of NHS primary care and has an important contribution to make as the NHS rises to these challenges. The Government believes efficiencies can be made without compromising the quality of services or public access to them. Our aim is to ensure that those community pharmacies upon which people depend continue to thrive and so we are consulting on the introduction of a Pharmacy Access Scheme, which will provide more NHS funds to certain pharmacies compared to others, considering factors such as location and the health needs of the local population.</p><p> </p><p>The Government’s vision is for a more efficient, modern system that will free up pharmacists to spend more time delivering clinical and public health services to the benefit of patients and the public.</p><p> </p><p>We are consulting the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee, other pharmacy bodies and patient and public representatives on our proposals for community pharmacy in 2016/17 and beyond. An impact assessment will be completed to inform final decisions and published in due course.</p><p> </p><p>Local commissioning and funding of services from community pharmacies, such as minor ailment services, will be unaffected by these proposals.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department’s data on payment timeliness is not available by area or region.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The assessment period and payment structure of Universal Credit creates a fixed period between date of entitlement and the first payment. However advances of up to 100% of a claimant’s indicative award are available straight away.</p><p> </p><p>Most new claims to Universal Credit Full Service have their entitlement to Universal Credit calculated within 31 days of submitting their application. The assessment period runs for a full calendar month from the date of entitlement and the Universal Credit pay date is up to 7 calendar days after the end of the assessment period.</p><p> </p><p>Our latest research shows that around 80% of new claims are paid in full and on time. The Department’s internal data shows that for those cases where full payment has not been made, around a sixth have not signed their Claimant Commitment or passed identity checks, and the others have outstanding verification issues such as housing, self-employed earnings and childcare costs. Many of these claimants receive a part payment for those elements of the claim that have been verified.</p>

star this property answer text <p>No assessment has been made of how advances interact with living standards. This is because advances are designed to meet a claimant’s immediate short term financial need and are not intended to address living standards. However, Universal Credit advances can be paid to a claimant on the same day in an emergency to prevent them falling into financial hardship. In addition regulations are also in place to protect claimants from excessive benefit deductions.</p> more like this
