star this property answer text <p>The Government set parity of esteem in physical and mental health in law in the Health and Social Care Act 2012. The Government further reinforced this commitment by welcoming the independent Mental Health Taskforce’s Five Year Forward View for Mental Health report in February 2016. The report set out a strategy for change in four key areas to drive forward improvements in mental health: promoting good mental health and helping people lead the lives they want to live, integrating care, creating a seven-day National Health Service for mental health and hard wiring mental health across health and social care.</p><p>The Government accepted all the report’s recommendations in January 2017 and published a detailed action plan for taking forward the recommendations, including how we will monitor progress and report transparently. NHS England’s Implementation plan for the Five Year Forward View, published in July 2016, also set out a robust plan for delivering the commitments set out in the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health.</p><p>The Government has also set up the first waiting times standards for mental health, including for those experiencing a first episode of psychosis. Latest figures show that over 75% of people experiencing their first episode of psychosis commence treatment within two weeks, exceeding the 50% Early Intervention in Psychosis target set for 2016/17.</p><p>NHS England’s Mental Health Investment Standard also requires the local NHS to increase mental health investment by at least the same proportion as overall allocations. This is planned to be met across England as a whole in 2017/18 and 2018/19. For 2018/19 all clinical commissioning groups will be required to meet the Mental Health Investment Standard and this will be subject to confirmation by their auditors.</p>

star this property answer text <p>NHS Improvement and NHS England have active programmes of work to review the role of e-health technology in areas such as productivity of operating theatres, the automated monitoring of admitted patients and associated bed occupancy levels and the role of digital patient services.</p><p>Additionally, the e-Referrals Service allows commissioners and acute hospital providers in England to manage their demand and capacity more effectively, providing opportunities for reduced waiting lists. It also enables general practitioners and patients to make informed decisions about the choice of provider for treatment by identifying providers associated with longer waiting times.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>At this point in the lifecycle of such an emergent technology, we cannot make reliable estimates of graphene’s near-term contribution to UK GDP. There is a long lead-in time for new materials to be embedded in technologies, and the case of graphene is no exception. Graphene is increasingly gaining traction across the world. One report has estimated that the global graphene-based products market will grow to $2.1 billion by 2025, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 46.3%.[1] Over 140 companies in the UK have been active in graphene in the UK. The Government is playing an active role to support the development and exploitation of graphene – including through the projects funded by Innovate UK and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), with universities, and suppliers and end users of graphene, and the foundation of the National Graphene Institute (NGI) and the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC).</p><p> </p><p>[1] Graphene: Technologies, Applications and Markets, BCC Research, 2016</p>
