star this property answer text <p>Charging for Residential Accommodation Guidelines (CRAG) supports local authorities to interpret the National Assistance (Assessment of Resources) Regulations 1992. This guidance and the regulations will be repealed from April 2015 when new provisions under the Care Act 2014 come into force.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The new charging framework introduces minimal changes in order to respond to the call for continuity and to enable local authorities to focus on preparing for implementation of the reforms recommended by the independent Commission on Funding Reform that the Care Act will also introduce. From April 2016 this will see the introduction of a cap on care costs that will protect people from the risk of catastrophic costs and an extension to the point at which means tested support becomes available. As the published impact assessment shows, this means that up to 100,000 more people will be better off by 2024-25. We are in the process of updating the modelling and will publish a revised impact assessment shortly. In addition, from April 2015 we are introducing a universal deferred payment agreement scheme that means people should not be forced to sell their home in their lifetime to pay for care.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Currently donated lungs are allocated to the designated cardiothoracic transplant centres on a zonal basis. However, the Cardiothoracic Organs Advisory Group (CTAG) have recently reviewed the allocation policy and have recommended that the size of the allocation zones be adjusted to help ensure equity of access. NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) have therefore confirmed that for cardiothoracic organs, the zones will be reviewed in August 2014 to coincide with changes in liver allocation zones and from August 2015, heart and lung zones will be disaggregated and the zones reviewed separately.</p><p> </p><p>CTAG have also recommended that NHSBT reviews the consequences of introducing two levels of priority for listing for lung transplants - urgent and routine, and suggest a national allocation scheme for urgent listed patients, and zonal allocation for routine listed patients.</p><p> </p><p>Any proposed change would need to be validated by NHSBT, who will review the criteria for urgent listing and the statistical modelling of the potential impact of such a system. NHSBT will continue to work closely with the Cystic Fibrosis Trust to improve outcomes for patients requiring lung transplants.</p><p> </p>

However the NHS patient visitor and staff car parking principles published by the Department on 23 August 2014 provide clear direction and leadership and require NHS organisations to publish details of their car parking arrangements including financial information relating to the charges and income which allows patients and the public to hold the NHS locally to account where unfair parking charges occur.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p>Information about the cost and availability of car parking across the NHS is published annually as part of two data collections - the Patient-Led Assessments of the Care Environment and the Estates Return Information Collection.
