star this property answer text <p>The Social Fund Funeral Expenses Payments provides a significant contribution towards funeral costs for claimants on qualifying benefits. It continues to meet the necessary costs of a cremation or burial and up to £700 towards other costs. In 2017-18 around 25,500 Funeral Expenses Payment awards were made. This amounted to £37.1 million of support for funeral costs. Interest-free Social Fund Budgeting Loans and Universal Credit Budgeting Advances are now also available to assist with funeral costs.</p><p> </p><p>The Department holds regular discussions with funeral providers and related organisations, including a Ministerial Roundtable on 18th June 2019 to discuss the Social Fund Funeral Expenses Payments scheme and listen to views for suggested future improvements.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The NHS Long Term Plan sets out plans to improve early cancer diagnosis, and a new ambition that, by 2028, the proportion of cancers diagnosed at stages one and two will rise from around half to three-quarters of cancer patients. This will be achieved through raising greater awareness of symptoms of cancer, accelerating access to diagnosis and treatment, maximising the number of cancers that are identified through screening, and harnessing new innovations in technology. A radical overhaul of the way diagnostic services are delivered will ensure that people can get their diagnosis more quickly, including the roll-out of new Rapid Diagnostic Centres across the country to upgrade and bring together the latest diagnostic equipment and expertise.</p><p> </p><p>The independent cancer taskforce recommended the introduction of a new faster diagnosis standard to ensure that people receive a life changing confirmation of whether or not they have cancer within 28 days. This proposed new standard is being considered as part of the clinical review of National Health Service access standards currently being undertaken by NHS England.</p>
