In 2016/17, 365,181 PCNs for dental charges and 975,065 for prescription charges were issued. This represents an increase of 90.11% and 90.23%, respectively, on 2015/16.

star this property answer text <p>NHS England and Health Education England (HEE) are working together with the profession to increase the general practitioner (GP) workforce. This includes measures to boost recruitment, address the reasons why GPs are leaving the profession, and encourage GPs to return to practice.</p><p> </p><p>There is a broad offer available to support GPs to remain in the National Health Service including the GP Health Service, the GP Retention Scheme, and the GP Retention Fund.</p><p> </p><p>In May 2018, NHS England launched the £10 million GP Retention Fund, comprising of the Local Retention Fund (£7 million) and the Intensive Support Areas (£3 million) which will help GPs stay in the workforce by promoting new ways of working and offering additional support.</p><p> </p><p>Recognising that workload is one of the biggest issues impacting retention, NHS England is investing £30 million in the Releasing Time for Care Programme, which aims to help practices reduce their workload through spreading awareness of innovations and facilitating local programmes.</p><p> </p><p>Getting the skills mix right in general practice is also critical in addressing workload pressures as well as in delivering appropriate patient care. This will mean bigger teams of staff, providing a wider range of care options for patients and freeing up more time for GPs to focus on those with more complex needs. As of September 2018, there were over 3,700 more clinical staff, excluding GPs, working in general practice since 2015; consisting of over 600 more nurses and over 3,000 more other direct patient care.</p><p> </p><p>In addition to this work, the General Practice Partnership Review, an independent review into the partnership model to which practices work, will deliver its final report early this year. The independent review will consider key questions around workforce and workload and make a number of recommendations with the aim of ensuring general practice remains an excellent place to work.</p>

star this property answer text <p>NHS England is committed to reducing health inequalities, and respiratory disease will be a clinical priority in the National Health Service long-term plan.</p><p> </p><p>Evidence shows that disadvantaged groups and areas of deprivation experience higher incidence rates of respiratory disease (such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma). This is in part due to higher levels of smoking, exposure to higher levels of air pollution, poor housing conditions, early life experiences and exposure to occupational hazards.</p><p> </p><p>National programmes such as the Elective Care Programme, NHS RightCare and Getting It Right First Time are focussing on respiratory disease management and have outlined the benefits that improvements in this area can bring to patients.</p><p> </p><p>Cancer of the larynx and lung are more common in the 20% most deprived patients relative to the 20% more well off patients. Smoking and increased alcohol consumption, both risk factors for these cancers, are also more common amongst more deprived populations.</p><p> </p><p>NHS England is to pilot low dose CT scanning for lung cancer, focussing on those clinical commissioning groups with the highest lung cancer mortality and incidence. These pilots, together with the implementation of rapid diagnosis pathways for lung cancer will help to close the gap in inequalities.</p>
