star this property answer text <p>Evidence suggests that life expectancy for people with sickle cell disease is improving. This is due to a number of factors including:</p><p>- Improved newborn screening coverage to enable earlier diagnosis;</p><p>- Use of the National Haemoglobinopathy Registry to monitor individuals’ health, treatment and their annual reviews;</p><p>- Access to specific diagnostics and medication, such as hydroxyurea; and</p><p>- A Commissioning for Quality and Innovation (CQUIN) incentive has been in place for the last two years to improve access to apheresis for individuals with sickle cell disease.</p><p>All these factors are reflected in the service specification quality indicators which providers are required to report against so that implementation can be monitored.</p><p>It is anticipated that NHS England’s new model for specialised haemoglobinopathy services will be in place by early 2020. The new model is designed to improve access to specialist advice and care for patients, irrespective of where they live. The equality impact assessment on the new service model indicates that it will advance the promotion of equality and support the further reduction of health inequalities. This will be through ensuring that patients with thalassemia and sickle cell conditions have equitable access to high quality specialist care and support within specialised commissioned centres irrespective of where in the country they live. These centres will promote best practice in service delivery.</p>

star this property answer text <p>A wide range of contraceptive choices, including long-acting reversible contraception (LARC), are available free of charge in a range of primary and community venues and local authorities are mandated to provide reasonable access to all methods of contraception. The proportion of women attending sexual and reproductive health services who use LARC methods has been steadily rising over the last ten years. The Department will work with Public Health England to consider what more we can do to ensure that all women have access to the full range of contraception.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
