star this property answer text <p>Acid sphingomyelinase deficiency is a lysosomal storage disorder (LSD). NHS England and its predecessor organisation have commissioned a national service for patients with LSDs since April 2005. The service is commissioned from eight expert centres and NHS England monitors these expert centres against the agreed service specification:</p><p><a href="https://www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/e06-lyso-stor-dis-child.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/e06-lyso-stor-dis-child.pdf</a></p><p>The active caseload of LSD patients treated in the service is just under 2,000. NHS England’s Highly Specialised Commissioning team conducts an annual clinical audit meeting with the multidisciplinary teams from all the providers and with representatives from relevant patient groups.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>After the British Medical Association (BMA) left negotiations in October 2014, the Government asked the independent Doctors and Dentists Review Body (DDRB) to make recommendations on a new contract for junior doctors. The DDRB report published on 16 July considered evidence from employers, Government, the British Medical Association (BMA) and other interested parties and made recommendations on a new pay structure for doctors and dentists in training.</p><p>The Secretary of State accepted the recommendations of the DDRB as the basis for implementing a new contract and invited the BMA to re-enter negotiations to take forward the recommendations with NHS Employers. Although the DDRB accepted the principles of the reforms there remained significant work to finalise and agree the details of the contract and it was expected that these would be agreed between the parties on the basis of a negotiation. It is disappointing that on 13 August the BMA announced that it would not re-engage in negotiations based on the independent report and absented itself from participating in making important design decisions on the new contract.</p><p>The Government cannot accept that a Trade Union should have a veto on making changes to an outdated employment contract that the BMA agreed urgently needed reform. The Department has therefore asked NHS Employers to take forward the work of developing a new employment contract without the BMA. NHS Employers are arranging to consult with junior doctors and other interested stakeholders directly and will shortly launch a series of roadshows across the country. The Government would still welcome the BMA re-entering the negotiation.</p><p>The new contract will prioritise safe care by strengthening safeguards on doctors’ working hours and reward junior doctors more fairly for the work they do. No financial savings will be made from implementing the new contract. It will be finalised in the new year and is due to be implemented from August 2016.</p>
