star this property answer text We remain concerned about reports of persecution of Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Falun Gong practitioners and others on the grounds of their religion or belief in China. The freedom to practise, change or share one’s faith or belief without discrimination or violent opposition is a fundamental human right that all people should enjoy. We believe that societies which aim to guarantee freedom of religion or belief are more stable, prosperous and more resilient against violent extremism. The UK last raised these issues with China at the UK/China Human Rights Dialogue in June 2017. more like this

The UK has been at the forefront of the humanitarian response to the Yemeni crisis and addressing this is a priority for the Government. The Foreign Secretary discussed humanitarian issues with King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia on 12 November. I spoke about these issues to the Saudi Foreign Minister on 30 October, and to the Emirati Deputy Foreign Minister on 7 November.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are deeply concerned that Bangladesh and Burma have announced that they plan to begin repatriation of the Rohingya to Burma in mid-November. We agree with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) that the conditions for returns do not yet exist. The UK continues to raise our concerns at the highest levels with both military and civilian Ministers in the Government of Burma. The UK and the UN Security Council have been clear, we want both Burma and Bangladesh to take solid and constructive steps to create the conditions that will allow the Rohingya to return safely, voluntarily and with dignity to Rakhine state. The Rohingya need to be well-informed about the situation they may return to, and there needs to be independent international monitoring of any returns.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are committed to addressing all forms of hate crime. In July 2016, the Home Office published Action Against Hate: The UK Government’s Plan for Tackling Hate Crime, an action plan which focuses on five key areas: <br>- preventing hate crime by challenging beliefs and attitudes;<br>- responding to hate crime within our communities;<br>- increasing the reporting of hate crime;<br>- improving support for victims of hate crime; and <br>- building our understanding of hate crime</p><p>The Home Office, and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government are leading a refresh of this action plan in 2018. The refresh will be overseen by the national Hate Crime Strategy Board which is jointly chaired by the two Departments. <br>Hate crimes are motivated by hostility or prejudice on the grounds of race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or transgender identity – the majority of the actions we are taking forward address all five of these ‘strands’. <br>For example, we have committed up to £900,000 over three years from the Hate Crime Community Projects Fund (HCCPF) for local community projects. Also, in October 2017 the Home Secretary announced £200,000 of Home Office funding for a new national hub that will be run by police officers for the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) to help the police to tackle the emerging threat of online hate crime. <br>The Home Secretary has asked Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of the Constabulary and Fire &amp; Rescue Services to carry out inspection work on hate crime to build a national picture of how effectively and efficiently police forces deal with all five strands of hate crime, including that committed online. <br>However, it is also right that some of our activities address hate crimes targeted at specific groups. Each of the five strands is represented by specific actions in the 2016 Action Plan, and in the 16 Hate Crime Community Projects the Home Office has funded to date. The Home Office is also funding protective security measures at faith institutions, through up to £2.4 million from the Places of Worship scheme and up to £1 million from the Vulnerable Faith Institutions scheme.</p>

star this property answer text <p>There is information on chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) for both healthcare professionals and the general public via the NHS Choices website. Further information is also provided in the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) clinical guideline on CFS/ME, which is provided in formats suitable for both professionals and the public. Both the NHS Choices and NICE guidance can be found at the following links:</p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/chronic-fatigue-syndrome-cfs/" target="_blank">www.nhs.uk/conditions/chronic-fatigue-syndrome-cfs/</a></p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/cg53" target="_blank">www.nice.org.uk/guidance/cg53</a></p><p> </p><p>Education and training is also an important feature in building the awareness of clinical professionals. In terms of education and training, the General Medical Council sets out the knowledge, skills and behaviours that new United Kingdom medical graduates must be able to demonstrate and Royal Medical Colleges, such as the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP), set the standards for postgraduate medical education in general practice. General practice is where most patients with CFS/ME are likely to be managed, and the condition is identified as a key area of clinical knowledge in the RCGP Applied Knowledge Test (AKT) content guide. The AKT is a summative assessment of the knowledge base that underpins general practice in the United Kingdom within the context of the National Health Service and is a key part of GPs’ qualifying exams. In addition, the RCGP offers a free online e-learning course for clinicians which covers the diagnosis treatment and care of patients with CFS/ME.</p><p> </p><p>Once fully qualified, clinicians are responsible for ensuring their own clinical knowledge remains up-to-date and for identifying learning needs as part of their continuing professional development. This activity should include taking account of new research and developments in guidance, such as that produced by NICE.</p>
