star this property answer text <p>The government is committed to ensuring that the UK has the digital communications infrastructure that businesses need to grow and thrive. For some this will mean fibre to the premise, for others this will be fibre to the cabinet, with the final customer connection over copper or coaxial cable. Some businesses may opt to use wireless services.</p><p>The Government’s role is to facilitate private investment in infrastructure, to provide policy stability, and to support the market, providing targeted financial support as necessary.</p><p>Through the Government’s investment of over £780 million, superfast broadband is now available to over 80% of homes and businesses in the UK, compared to 45% in 2010. By the end of 2017 it will be available to 95% of homes and businesses. The Government has already dedicated £40 million this year to SME connectivity in 50 cities and their surrounding areas. The scheme is going well, with over £28 million committed so far. Over 40,000 vouchers being issued since the scheme launched in December 2013. On average firms are getting ten times faster broadband as a result of their improved connection, and almost 750,000 workers will benefit from better broadband in the workplace.</p>

star this property answer text <p>NHS Improvement regulates all independent providers of National Health Service-funded care, including ambulance services, unless they are exempt for the following reasons:</p><p>- the providers are not required to register with the Care Quality Commission (CQC);</p><p>- the providers are small providers of NHS-funded healthcare services whose annual turnover from providing NHS services is less than £10 million;</p><p>- they are providers of primary medical and dental services;</p><p>- they are providers of NHS continuing healthcare and NHS-funded nursing care; or</p><p>- the provider is an NHS trust which will only be licensed when they are authorised as an NHS foundation trust.</p><p>All independent providers of ambulance services must be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and satisfy their registration requirements. As part of this work the CQC are inspecting all independent ambulance services by the end of March 2018, and are already sharing findings from these inspections with the sector in order to drive improvement. We are working closely with the CQC and will consider any recommendations they make.</p><p>Where an independent ambulance provider is working on behalf of an NHS ambulance trust the independent provider will also be subject to continuous monitoring by the trust, to ensure they are delivering to the same rigorous safety and quality standards and inspections as NHS ambulance services.</p>
