star this property answer text <p>The death of any individual attempting to travel to the United Kingdom whether at sea or in a vehicle on land is a tragic event. No-one should be risking their life in an attempt to enter the UK in such dangerous ways, and the Home Office continues to work with international partners to tackle the organised criminal gangs who are coordinating such attempts. Those who need international protection claim asylum in the first safe country they reach, as that is the fastest route to safety.</p><p>It is not possible to ascertain the motives of individuals seeking to travel to the UK, whether to seek sanctuary or otherwise. However, this Government is determined to support those who genuinely need protection and through our resettlement schemes, we are making sure our doors remain open to the people who most need our help.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>On Sunday 29 September, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care formally announced the next stage in our strategic investment in the National Health Service, with the Health Infrastructure Plan (HIP) to ensure that our health infrastructure is fit-for-purpose for decades to come. On Wednesday 2 October, the Prime Minister then set out his plan that “in the next ten years we will build 40 new hospitals in the biggest investment in hospital infrastructure for a generation.” As a step towards this, we have committed funding for six new hospitals as well as seed funding to support the initial stage of a further 34 building projects.</p><p>The package of funding includes:</p><p>- £2.7 billion for six new hospital projects to be delivered in our first phase of major hospital rebuilds (HIP1);</p><p>- £100 million to support for 21 major projects (£5 million each) comprising 34 hospital sites go to the next stage of developing their plans to be delivered in the second phase of major hospital rebuilds, subject to business case development and future spending reviews. Other projects will be able to bid into this and other future waves too. (HIP2); and</p><p>- £200 million investment for state-of-the-art MRI, CT and breast cancer screening machines, to update or replace our most out of date diagnostic equipment, across over 80 trusts.</p><p>The Health Infrastructure Plan also outlines our plans for a new system for ensuring funding reaches the frontline when and where it is needed, with national infrastructure to support this, and clear accountability for how it is spent. These plans include proposals for assisting trusts, including allowing some access to early funding and streamlining the business case process.</p><p>As part of our rolling investment programme, we have confirmed that there will be future phases of the Health Infrastructure Plan, with opportunities for the NHS to put forward further new hospital projects for the next phases of the programme. We also recognise that there may some more schemes suitable for investments that are not currently part of HIP1 and HIP2. These should continue developing their plans and priorities for local NHS infrastructure, and where exceptionally strong schemes come to light before HIP3, we will consider these in the context of available funding.</p>
