star this property answer text <p>Currently nanotechnology used in medicine is regulated under the legislation that applies to medical devices and medicinal products.</p><p>The medical device regulations require that all medical devices are safe and perform as intended. The regulations have recently been updated and the new regulations include specific requirements for medical devices containing nanomaterials. This means that any medical device containing nanomaterials will be subject to more detailed regulatory scrutiny than under the current regulations.</p><p>As with all medicinal products, before a nanomedicine is granted a marketing authorisation and becomes available in the United Kingdom, it must be fully evaluated in relation to the appropriate standards required in the relevant legislation on medicinal products. In addition, specific scientific guidelines on nanomedicines have been developed to help medicines developers prepare marketing authorisation applications for nanomedicines.</p><p>No specific assessment of the regulatory framework for the use of nanotechnology in medicine has been undertaken.</p><p> </p>

A working-age adult living in a household where every adult is working is about 6 times less likely to be in relative poverty than one living in a household where nobody works.</p><p> </p><p>Universal Credit (UC) replaces six outdated and complex benefits with one – it is simplifying the benefits system and making work pay. As a result, people claiming UC move into work faster, stay in work longer and spend more time looking to increase their earnings. UC provides more help with childcare costs (eligible claimants are able to claim up to 85 per cent of their childcare costs, compared to 70% on the legacy system), a dedicated Work Coach, and removes the 16-hour ‘cliff edge’ for workers.</p><p> </p><p>The Department continues to conduct research and analysis to enhance our understanding surrounding working claimants, as well as working with stakeholders and customers to develop our approach. Our Work Coaches are fully trained to provide tailored advice on career development to help claimants explore ways to grow their earnings.</p>
