star this property answer text <p>A review of gaming machines and social responsibility measures was launched in October 2016, which included a look at the Fix Odds Betting terminals. Purdah interrupted the final stages of our consideration of the evidence received and the subsequent internal, cross government process of approval and sign off. I'm afraid, therefore, that we are back at the start of the process and that as a consequence of it taking at least 12 weeks I would not expect any further announcement until October at the earliest.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has an established approach to providing information to all its potential customers through the use of information leaflets, which are widely available and on the Gov.uk website. The National Employer and Partnership Team work with national partners through the Operational Stakeholder Engagement Forum (OSEF). This group consisting of about 40 organisations also attend quarterly meetings to learn more about, and feedback on, current and proposed DWP policies and communication practices. Attendees are encouraged to circulate key messages from the meetings to their many local outlets.</p><p>We also, at a local level, work with a wide range of partners and customer advocates in identifying and providing an appropriate level of support to customers who are vulnerable, including those with mental health conditions.</p><p> </p><p>DWP’s definition of vulnerability is “any individual who is identified as having complex needs and/or requires additional support to enable them to access DWP benefits and use our services” as being vulnerable. This definition ensures that we have consistency and continuity in the type and level of service which is being offered and that it supports the customer appropriately whatever their needs. Assistance to make a claim is available, this can be through additional support from our telephony agents, or through face to face support in our network of jobcentres or a home visit.</p><p> </p><p>DWP adopts this approach at all points of contact with the customer and uses its records to ensure, to the best of its abilities, when individuals are identified as being vulnerable we take all reasonable steps to try to mitigate any risks.</p><p> </p><p>When DWP Staff are satisfied the risk to the individual is significant and immediate they are explicitly empowered to act without consent to take all steps felt necessary to address significant and immediate risks to an individual’s welfare or safety.</p><p> </p><p>Where DWP consider that any risk is not significant or immediate we will continue follow our established approach working with the individual and with consent, where necessary, contact any relevant organisations to provide the appropriate levels of support.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Supported housing plays an invaluable role in our society, helping some of our country’s most vulnerable people, including many adults with learning disabilities, to live as independently as possible. Since 2011, we have delivered 27,000 supported housing units for disabled, vulnerable and older people. At the Autumn Statement 2015, we announced £400 million of new specialist affordable homes for the vulnerable, elderly or those with disabilities.</p><p>In addition to the work of my Department, the Department of Health has made available, through the Care and Support Specialised (CASSH) Fund, approximately £200 million to fund about 6,000 new homes, including for older people; those with learning and physical disabilities; and mental ill health.</p><p>The Department of Health is also working with colleagues in NHS England on the Transforming Care Programme. The programme aims to ensure that people with learning disabilities and/or autism, mental illness or challenging behaviour are not kept in hospitals but are cared for in line with best practice, based on their individual needs. This is in addition to the £25 million capital fund for housing and technology to support people with a learning disability to live independently. Funding has been awarded to 52 separate projects in the 2016/17 and 2017/18 financial years.</p><p>Government is also helping older and disabled people to live independently and safely at home through the Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG), which can contribute towards meeting the cost of adapting an older or disabled person's property, including people with learning disabilities. In the 2015 Spending Review DFG funding received year-on-year increases and will more than double from £220 million in 2015-16 to over £500 million by 2020.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Decisions around the continuing treatment of patients who are or who have been subject to the Mental Health Act 1983 are a matter for clinicians.</p><p> </p><p>Community Treatment Orders (CTOs), introduced by The Mental Health Act 2007, may be used in certain circumstances when a patient’s responsible clinician and an Approved Mental Health Professional agree that the risk of harm arising from the patient’s disorder is sufficiently serious to justify having the power to recall the person to hospital. These Orders may include a condition that a patient complies with arrangements made to ensure that he or she continues to receive medical treatment for their mental illness.</p><p> </p><p>The responsible clinician may recall a patient on a CTO to hospital for treatment if the patient needs to receive treatment for mental disorder in hospital; or if there would be a risk of harm to the health or safety of the patient or to other persons if the patient were not recalled. The fact that the patient has failed to comply with a treatment condition can be taken into account when deciding whether to recall the patient.</p><p> </p><p>Restricted patients are offenders who are detained in hospital for mental health treatment and who are subject to special controls by the Secretary of State for Justice. For these patients, Section 41 of the Mental Health Act 1983 provides for a “restriction order” which operates like a community section. This means that restricted patients who are conditionally discharged can be supervised in the community generally by a psychiatrist and a social worker, with a number of conditions imposed. The Secretary of State for Justice has a broad power of recall that applies to any conditionally discharged restricted patient. A condition of such a discharge may be compliance with treatment, on a voluntary basis, provided the patient has capacity to give consent.</p><p> </p><p>Non-compliance with medication will lead to consideration of recall. Whether a recall takes place will, of course, turn on the circumstances of the particular case.</p>
