star this property answer text <p>Cancerous brain tumours are difficult to diagnose and often require immediate treatment. Adults with suspected brain and central nervous system cancers are urgently referred for an MRI scan of the brain for assessment<sup>1</sup>. For diagnosed patients, the survival statistics<sup>2</sup> are:</p><p>- 14% of patients survive for ten years or more;</p><p>- 19% of patients survive for five years or more; and</p><p>- 40% of patients survive for one year or more.</p><p> </p><p>Earlier diagnosis is a key priority for NHS England. We are investing £200 million in transformation funding for earlier diagnosis and better post-treatment care and support for cancer patients.</p><p> </p><p>The National Cancer Programme has established a number of initiatives to support ambitions of improving earlier diagnosis including:</p><p>- The Accelerate, Coordinate, Evaluate (ACE) programme tests a new, multi-disciplinary diagnostic centre approach to diagnosing patients. The model is focussed on patients with vague or unclear but concerning symptoms, to ensure they receive a diagnosis as quickly as possible; and</p><p>- The Faster Diagnosis Standard aims to ensure that patients that are referred for an investigation with a suspicion of cancer, including brain tumours, are diagnosed or have cancer ruled out within 28 days, and we are continuing to move towards national implementation, with a new measurement system going live in hospitals from 1 April 2018.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is also supportive of HeadSmart, a United Kingdom-wide campaign to reduce diagnosis times of childhood brain tumours. The campaign aims to raise national awareness of the common signs and symptoms of a brain tumour in children and young people by equipping parents, the public and healthcare professionals with the information they need.</p><p> </p><p>Finally, last week the Government announced a package, alongside Cancer Research UK and Brain Tumour Research, to boost research and investment into brain tumours. We will commit £20 million, through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), over the next five years – with the aim of doubling this amount once new high-quality research proposals become available. Cancer Research UK has also confirmed £25 million over five years in major research centres and programmes dedicated to brain tumours. This research will make new discoveries that the NIHR can then translate into treatments for patients.</p><p> </p><p>Notes:</p><p> </p><p><sup>1</sup>National Institute for Health and Care Excellence – <a href="https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng12/chapter/1-recommendations-organised-by-site-of-cancer#brain-and-central-nervous-system-cancers" target="_blank">https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng12/chapter/1-recommendations-organised-by-site-of-cancer#brain-and-central-nervous-system-cancers</a></p><p><sup>2</sup>Cancer Research UK - <a href="http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/health-professional/cancer-statistics/statistics-by-cancer-type/brain-other-cns-and-intracranial-tumours#heading-Zero" target="_blank">http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/health-professional/cancer-statistics/statistics-by-cancer-type/brain-other-cns-and-intracranial-tumours#heading-Zero</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to promoting fairness and transparency for leaseholders and freeholders.</p><p>The written statement on 21 December 2017 (HCWS384) set out a package of measures to crack down on unfair leasehold practices. This includes introducing legislation as soon as Parliamentary time allows to prohibit the development of new build leasehold houses, other than in exceptional circumstances; restricting ground rents in newly established leases of houses and flats to a peppercorn; and working with the Law Commission to support existing leaseholders, including making buying a freehold or extending a lease easier, faster, fairer and cheaper and reinvigorating commonhold to provide greater choice for consumers.</p><p>As part of bringing forward legislation we have been, and will continue to, work with stakeholders from across the sector to ensure the best outcomes for consumers as well as considering the case for exemptions to prevent adverse impacts upon new much needed supply. The Law Commission has commenced work on enfranchisement and commonhold reform, including launching an 8 week commonhold call for evidence on 22 February.</p><p>On 1 April, the Government published its response to the recent call for evidence, <em>Protecting consumers in the letting and managing agent market</em>. This sets out proposals for a new regulatory approach for letting and managing agents. We will establish a Working Group to take forward this work and will also ask the Working Group to look at fees and charges affecting both leaseholders and freeholders and consider under what circumstances they are justified and if they should be capped or banned.</p>
