Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Strokes: Rehabilitation ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: NHS England is prioritising implementation of the National Service Model for an Integrated Community Stroke Service (ICSS), which includes delivery of specialist stroke rehabilitation at home and in care homes, improving life after stroke support, and six month follow-up reviews, by working closely with the voluntary sector. The ICSS model is vital to support physical, cognitive, and...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Out-patients: Attendance ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: It is not possible to produce an estimate of the true cost to the National Health Service of these missed appointments, as this will depend on whether NHS staff were still able to use the time productively, for example by seeing other patients instead, or doing other work. NHS England advises local NHS organisations, general practices and trusts to plan for preventing and dealing with missed...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Antibiotics ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Markham: Officials are aware of, and have considered, the findings of the report Antibiotic underdosing and disposal in NHS organisations across Great Britain.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Respiratory Syncytial Virus (30 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: NHS England has not made specific assessments of the impact of infant respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) on paediatric intensive care bed capacity, National Health Service elective care capacity, and general practice visits, as RSV is often accompanied by other respiratory viruses and bacterial infections, and it is therefore difficult to measure the exact contribution of RSV. Neither has the...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Prescription Drugs: Shortages (30 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: There are approximately 14,000 medicines licensed for supply in the United Kingdom, and the overwhelming majority are in good supply. The medicine supply chain is complex, global, and highly regulated, and supply issues can be caused by a range of factors. For example, suppliers can encounter manufacturing problems, difficulty accessing raw materials, and surges in demand. These are commonly...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: First Aid: Adrenaline (30 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has published guidance on the use of adrenaline auto-injectors in schools, and there is provision in this guidance for the use of an adrenaline auto-injector on someone to whom it was not prescribed, in a medical emergency. However, regulation 238 of the Human Medicines Regulations 2012 provides an exemption from certain...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Aviation: Medical Equipment (30 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: Following their review, the Adrenaline Auto-injector Expert Working Group (AAI EWG) recommended in principle that adrenaline auto-injectors (AAIs) should be made available in public locations, for use in treating anaphylaxis in unforeseen and critical circumstances, provided suitable safeguards can be implemented to ensure their effective and safe use. Challenges lie in ensuring correct and...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Breast Cancer: Alcoholic Drinks (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: Public Health England’s evidence review, ‘The Public Health Burden of Alcohol and the Effectiveness and Cost-Effectiveness of Alcohol Control Policies’, which was published in 2016 and updated in 2018, found there is strong evidence for an association between alcohol consumption and female breast cancer, and that for breast cancer, any level of drinking increases your risk so there is...

Schools are also allowed to claim under this scheme in respect of pupils under the age of five years old. There are no current plans to...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Disadvantaged: Coastal Areas and North of England (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: Good physical and mental health are underpinned by many socioeconomic factors beyond the health service.

The Levelling Up the United Kingdom white paper sets out the Government’s ambition to improve living standards and wellbeing...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Sexual Dysfunction: Prescription Drugs (29 Ebr 2024)

As a result of the review product information will be updated, as necessary, and consideration will be given to whether additional risk minimisation measures are needed....

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Hospital Wards: Gender (26 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: NHS England is updating their Delivering Same-Sex Accommodation guidance, and a revised version will be published in due course.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Pharmacy: Rural Areas (26 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: It is the statutory duty of every local authority in England to undertake pharmaceutical needs assessments for their areas including those that are rural in nature, every three years, to ensure provision continues to meet their population’s needs.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Health Services: Women (26 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: It is not Government policy for the National Health Service to refer to ‘people who have ovaries’ and this phraseology has not been market tested. We have been clear that biological sex matters and it is important to use language that recognises the separate health and biological needs of men and women. For all sex-specific conditions, we expect the language used to put biological sex,...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Vaccination (25 Ebr 2024)

Lord Markham: The introduction and adoption of new immunisation programmes and achieving high uptake across all immunisation programmes remains a high priority for the Government.
