star this property answer text <p>We know that one of the main reasons GPs leave general practice is retirement. That is why we have put in place comprehensive measures to ensure we meet our commitment of an extra 5,000 GPs in the NHS by 2020. GP Career Plus, the GP Retention Scheme and the National GP Induction and Refresher Scheme will all help get valuable experienced GPs back into our NHS. 3,157 GP training places were also filled in 2017 – the highest number ever.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The United Kingdom National Screening Committee (UK NSC) last reviewed the evidence to screen for lung cancer in 2006 and recommended that population screening should not be introduced. This was due to a lack of evidence to support the use of the screen tests within a population screening programme and that the benefit to screen had not been demonstrated. The UK NSC will review the evidence again after the results of the NELSON randomised lung cancer screening trial are published.</p><p>The UK NSC recognises that lung cancer is common and unless found at an early stage the outcome is very poor. The Committee is currently working with the National Institute of Health Research to assess the effectiveness and cost of screening heavy smokers for lung cancer.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Two of the most significant respiratory health issues that impact deprived areas are poor air quality and smoking.</p><p>Minimising health inequalities is a core part of Public Health England’s (PHE’s) Mission and Strategic Vision for 2020. PHE was commissioned by the Department to review the evidence for effective interventions on air quality and provide recommendations that will significantly reduce harm from air pollution and impact on health inequalities at the local level.</p><p>PHE has also published a number of reports on urban design which aim to support reductions in air pollution.</p><p>Smoking is a leading cause of a number of respiratory diseases including lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and is the leading cause of health inequalities. The Government’s Tobacco Control Plan for England, published in July 2017, re-emphasises the important role of local areas in providing support for smokers to stop smoking. As part of a comprehensive programme of national and local tobacco control activity, this is an important means of tackling inequalities in lung health in disadvantaged communities.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department considers the Manchester Lung Health Check to have been successful. Two thirds of patients who received a Manchester Lung Health Check and suffered from cancer had the cancer caught at the earliest stage as a result of this check. Diagnosing lung cancer this early increases the chance of survival. Following the success of the Manchester Lung Health Check, NHS England will be running other pilot programmes of low dose CT scanning in clinical commissioning groups with the lowest lung cancer survival rates.</p><p> </p><p>Improving early diagnosis of cancer is a priority for this Government. We have committed to delivering the recommendations in the Cancer Strategy for England, including the new 28 day faster diagnosis standard, and NHS England has confirmed £200 million of transformation funding over the next two years, including encouraging local areas to find new and innovative ways to diagnose cancer earlier.</p><p> </p><p>Improving care for people with other lung diseases is also crucial. This requires continued action to implement existing plans, including the NHS Outcomes Framework, which details National Health Service priority areas and includes reducing deaths from respiratory disease as a key indicator.</p>
