star this property answer text <p>A randomised controlled trial funded by Cancer Research UK, the Medical Research Council and National Health Service Research and Development took place in 14 United Kingdom and six Italian centres, and evaluated screening for bowel cancer using a single Bowel Scope Screening (flexible sigmoidoscopy) between 55 and 64 years of age, removing small polyps by Bowel Scope Screening and providing full colonoscopy for &quot;high risk&quot; polyps. The study concluded that Bowel Scope Screening is a safe and practical test and, when offered only once between ages 55 and 64 years, confers a substantial and long lasting benefit. The UK National Screening Committee reviewed the evidence, and in April 2011 concluded that screening for bowel cancer using Bowel Scope Screening meets the United Kingdom National Screening Committee criteria for a screening test. In England its implementation will be managed by National Health Service Cancer Screening Programmes.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>As at 31 March 2014, 36.6% of Bowel Scope Screening centres in England were operational, exceeding the commitment of 30%<sup>1</sup>. As set out in the third annual report of <em>Improving Outcomes: A Strategy for Cancer</em> (December 2013), NHS England will work with Public Health England to help deliver the involvement of screening centres sufficient to meet the 60% commitment by March 2015 and to support preparatory steps in other screening centres to implement by the end of 2016.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>As at the end of October 2014, 20,603 examinations had taken place. 919 people had gone on to have a colonoscopy with 20 cancers being detected. A further 365 people have had an advanced adenoma found and removed.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p>[1] <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/latest-bowel-cancer-screening-technique-reaps-benefits" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/news/latest-bowel-cancer-screening-technique-reaps-benefits</a></p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The NHS Outcomes Framework 2014-15 sets out the Department’s priority areas for the National Health Service and includes reducing deaths from respiratory disease as a key indicator. In addition to this, the Mandate sets out the requirements for NHS England to improve outcomes in a range of areas, including preventing premature deaths from the biggest killers (including respiratory) and supporting people with long term physical and mental health conditions.</p><p> </p><p><em>Living Well for Longer: National Support for Local Action to Reduce Premature Mortality</em>, launched in April, sets out what the health and care system will do to achieve the Government’s ambition to be amongst the best in Europe at reducing levels of premature mortality. It brings together in one place the national actions taken by the Department of Health and wider Government, NHS England and Public Health England, in prevention, early diagnosis and treatment, focusing on the five big killers, including lung disease, and shows how they will support local leadership and interventions.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has supported a number of initiatives to help improve outcomes for people with respiratory disease. In July 2011, it published an outcomes strategy for people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma in England, which sets out six high-level objectives to improve outcomes in these areas through high quality prevention, detection, treatment and care services. The Department has also supported the publication of a good practice guides on services for adults with asthma, which was published in 2012.</p><p> </p><p>The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence has published Quality Standards for COPD and for asthma setting out the markers of high-quality, cost-effective care and the implementation of these will also raise the standard of care people with these conditions receive.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has collaborated with the National Review of Asthma Deaths which is examined the circumstances surrounding deaths from asthma from 1 February 2012 to 30 January 2013 and reported on its findings in May of this year. Lessons learnt about the factors that contribute to asthma deaths will inform the NHS about what constitutes good care, and encourage the development of appropriate services for people with asthma.</p><p> </p><p>Public Health England recently ran a local pilot campaign in Oldham and Rochdale to raise awareness amongst the public about the importance of visiting their general practitioner with symptoms of breathlessness.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The National Cancer Peer Review (NCPR) programme is currently under review by NHS England and a number of options are being considered. The provision of site specific networks, such as those for breast cancer, is written into the national cancer peer review requirements, therefore the future of local breast network groups will be decided as part of the review of the NCPR programme. As yet however, no decision has been made.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
