star this property answer text <p>On 24 February 2016, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence published a new best practice guideline on the assessment and management of Motor Neurone Disease (MND). The guideline sets out the signs and symptoms of the disease and recommends that robust protocols and pathways are in place to inform healthcare professionals about MND, how it may present and to inform healthcare professionals in all settings about local referral arrangements. The guideline can be found by following the link below:</p><p><a href="http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng42/resources/motor-neurone-disease-assessment-and-management-1837449470149" target="_blank">www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng42/resources/motor-neurone-disease-assessment-and-management-1837449470149</a></p><p>Further to this, the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and the MND Association have worked together to produce a ‘Red Flag Tool’ which sets out key signs of MND to help general practitioners to identify suspected cases and refer them promptly to a neurologist for appropriate investigation. The RCGP and the British Medical Journal have both produced MND e-learning courses.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Cancerous brain tumours are difficult to diagnose and often require immediate treatment. Adults with suspected brain and central nervous system cancers are urgently referred for an MRI scan of the brain for assessment<sup>1</sup>. For diagnosed patients, the survival statistics<sup>2</sup> are:</p><p>- 14% of patients survive for ten years or more;</p><p>- 19% of patients survive for five years or more; and</p><p>- 40% of patients survive for one year or more.</p><p> </p><p>Earlier diagnosis is a key priority for NHS England. We are investing £200 million in transformation funding for earlier diagnosis and better post-treatment care and support for cancer patients.</p><p> </p><p>The National Cancer Programme has established a number of initiatives to support ambitions of improving earlier diagnosis including:</p><p>- The Accelerate, Coordinate, Evaluate (ACE) programme tests a new, multi-disciplinary diagnostic centre approach to diagnosing patients. The model is focussed on patients with vague or unclear but concerning symptoms, to ensure they receive a diagnosis as quickly as possible; and</p><p>- The Faster Diagnosis Standard aims to ensure that patients that are referred for an investigation with a suspicion of cancer, including brain tumours, are diagnosed or have cancer ruled out within 28 days, and we are continuing to move towards national implementation, with a new measurement system going live in hospitals from 1 April 2018.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is also supportive of HeadSmart, a United Kingdom-wide campaign to reduce diagnosis times of childhood brain tumours. The campaign aims to raise national awareness of the common signs and symptoms of a brain tumour in children and young people by equipping parents, the public and healthcare professionals with the information they need.</p><p> </p><p>Finally, last week the Government announced a package, alongside Cancer Research UK and Brain Tumour Research, to boost research and investment into brain tumours. We will commit £20 million, through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), over the next five years – with the aim of doubling this amount once new high-quality research proposals become available. Cancer Research UK has also confirmed £25 million over five years in major research centres and programmes dedicated to brain tumours. This research will make new discoveries that the NIHR can then translate into treatments for patients.</p><p> </p><p>Notes:</p><p> </p><p><sup>1</sup>National Institute for Health and Care Excellence – <a href="https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng12/chapter/1-recommendations-organised-by-site-of-cancer#brain-and-central-nervous-system-cancers" target="_blank">https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng12/chapter/1-recommendations-organised-by-site-of-cancer#brain-and-central-nervous-system-cancers</a></p><p><sup>2</sup>Cancer Research UK - <a href="http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/health-professional/cancer-statistics/statistics-by-cancer-type/brain-other-cns-and-intracranial-tumours#heading-Zero" target="_blank">http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/health-professional/cancer-statistics/statistics-by-cancer-type/brain-other-cns-and-intracranial-tumours#heading-Zero</a></p>
