star this property answer text <p>Early diagnosis of blood cancers is difficult as symptoms, such as tiredness or back pain, are often misdiagnosed. For suspected blood cancers, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence published a revised guideline in 2015 which clearly sets out that general practitioners should consider a very urgent full blood count within 48 hours to assess for leukaemia if adults present with suspicious symptoms.</p><p> </p><p>In December 2016 NHS England announced transformation funding of £200 million for Cancer Alliances to encourage new and innovative ways to diagnose cancer earlier, improve the care for those living with cancer and ensure that each cancer patient gets the right care for them.</p><p> </p><p>Additionally, the Accelerate, Coordinate and Evaluate Programme is a unique early diagnosis initiative, a programme of 60 projects exploring innovative concepts of diagnosing cancer earlier across England. The programme is testing a new multi-disciplinary diagnostic centre approach to diagnosing patients with vague or unclear but concerning symptoms, often characteristic of hard to diagnose cancers like blood cancers.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In April 2016, the General Practice Forward View set out a package of investment in general practice. This included a number of reforms which will increase capacity in general practice through recruitment and retention of general practitioners (GPs) and the wider workforce, and investment in extended access to GP services and the Time for Care programme.</p><p> </p><p>By 2020 the Government has committed to 5,000 additional GPs and 5,000 other staff in general practice; and by March 2019 everyone having access to GP services, including sufficient routine appointments at evenings and weekends to meet locally determined demand.</p><p> </p><p>The Time for Care programme will spread awareness of innovations that will help release capacity in general practice and facilitate local change programmes to implement them. Examples of these innovations include active signposting and developing the team. It is estimated that most practices can expect to release about 10% of GP time. The Time for Care programme provides support for groups of practices to implement their choice of the actions. To date, this has covered 115 clinical commissioning groups, available to 3,974 practices.</p><p> </p><p>In 2016/17 £2,000,000 of funding was awarded to NHS Crawley Clinical Commissioning Group to improve local GP practice resilience and sustainability and improve access to local GP services for patients.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In England there is a well-established framework for enabling access to cost effective new cancer medicines. All new licensed cancer medicines are referred to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) for inclusion within the Technology Appraisal Programme. This referral is irrespective of the clinical indication concerned. Where cancer medicines are approved by NICE for use in England, NHS England makes these available immediately. NICE now also has the ability to refer licensed medicines demonstrating promising, but not yet certain, benefits for inclusion within the Cancer Drugs Fund.</p> more like this

The first treatment that will be available to patient is tisagenlecleucel (Kymriah) as an option for treating children and young people up to 25 years old with B cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia that is refractory, in relapsed post-transplant or in second or later relapse.</p><p> </p><p>NHS England anticipates that the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence will recommend this treatment for entry into the Cancer Drugs Fund in mid-November. If so, funding will be made immediately available, following a successful commercial deal with the manufacturer Novartis. We anticipate the first patients will begin their treatment in late November 2018. The phased implementation required by the manufacturer and the NHS means that full capacity to treat eligible patients will take some months to achieve and a National CAR-T Clinical Panel will convene in mid-November to assure equity of access and prioritise eligible patients.</p>
