Breast Cancer — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (18 Oct 2018)

Steve Brine: Thank you for chairing our session today, Mr McCabe. I add my congratulations to the hon. Member for Lincoln (Karen Lee) on securing the debate and the hon. Member for Crewe and Nantwich (Laura Smith) on leading us off today. Breast cancer sadly affects so many of us so personally. It is always a privilege to respond to any debate in this House, especially on cancer and more especially on...

Breast Cancer — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (18 Oct 2018)

Steve Brine: Oh yes; the hon. Lady has already said Chancellor today. I am not sure about that one. As the cancer Minister, I want a future where there is no breast cancer. The hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) mentioned that, and I think all hon. Members who have contributed this afternoon would like to see a future where there was no breast cancer. One day, perhaps—but the statistics show...

Breast Cancer — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (18 Oct 2018)

Steve Brine: The hon. Lady is right. That is why COSD stands for the cancer outcomes and services dataset. It is not specific to breast cancer, nor should it be, because there are sadly lots of different cancers, but she is right that it should be measuring, judging and analysing both the outcomes and the services that lead to that outcome. As ever, she is dead right. The point was made about off-patent...

Breast Cancer — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (18 Oct 2018)

Steve Brine: Not at the moment. The hon. Lady and others also talked about the long-term funding of cancer alliances. NHS England and I are absolutely committed to the cancer alliances. We have backed them with significant funding and we will continue to support their development fully, ensuring that they have the funding that they need—in this cycle, at the very least—to transform cancer...

Breast Cancer — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (18 Oct 2018)

Steve Brine: There is so much more that I want to get on to, so I will not go into that in any great deal, but I will give the hon. Lady a note on that. Lord O’Shaughnessy, who is part of the Department’s drugs team and who speaks on health in the other place, is working on the implementation of that legislation. The hon. Lady has asked me about this before, and it frustrates me incredibly...

Breast Cancer — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (18 Oct 2018)

Steve Brine: I always keep an open mind. The truth is—the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire knows exactly what I will say—that although the screening review will no doubt make recommendations on that, there is a very heated and divided debate within the breast cancer community around screening, and not just about the age at which to begin it. We had the AgeX age extension trial, which broadened...

Breast Cancer — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (18 Oct 2018)

Steve Brine: Let me make this point. That plan includes an ambition to attract qualified people back to the NHS through domestic and international recruitment. HEE also plans to expand the number of clinical nurse specialists and to develop clear CNS competencies and routes into training. This will see every breast cancer patient having access to a CNS or other support worker by 2021. We are committed to...

Breast Cancer — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (18 Oct 2018)

Steve Brine: The general point I would make is this. The hon. Lady said that people cannot live on good will; they have to have pay rises, and that is why I am very pleased that we have lifted the public sector cap pay. The significant pay rise that will be coming is welcome. Also, as well as expanding the number of nurse training places by 5,170, we are expanding the skills of specialist cancer nurses....

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Smoking (18 Oct 2018)

Steve Brine: The Government has consistently highlighted that quitting smoking and nicotine use completely is the best way to improve health. E-cigarettes are not risk free. However, the evidence is increasingly clear that e-cigarettes are significantly less harmful to health than smoking tobacco, and can help smokers to quit, particularly when combined with stop smoking services. In the Tobacco Control...

Steve Brine: Vaping products are covered by the European Union Tobacco Products Directive which has been implemented into United Kingdom domestic law through the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016. The Government will introduce legislation to ensure that existing tobacco control legislation continues to operate effectively after EU exit. Under s58 of the Tobacco and Related Products...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Haemophilia: Medical Treatments (18 Oct 2018)

Steve Brine: The National Health Service achieves savings across all clinical services, and reinvests those savings within its overall expenditure limits set by parliament. The NHS does not usually ring fence funding for specific patient groups, but considers its funding responsibilities for all patients based on all sources of funding, including procurement savings. Savings from medicines used by the...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Breast Cancer: Screening (18 Oct 2018)

Steve Brine: In 2018/19 adjuvanted trivalent flu vaccine (aTIV) is the recommended vaccine for people aged 65 years and over. Deliveries of the vaccine will be phased by the manufacturer to all customers; 40% in September, 20% in October, and 40% in the first half of November 2018. aTIV will give better protection against flu to those aged 65 years and over.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Haemophilia: Medical Treatments (18 Oct 2018)

Steve Brine: The maximum conversion ratios were provided by clinical experts based on their experience of managing the clinical needs of most patients. Clinicians manage individual patients to achieve bleed control in line with the British Society of Haematology for trough levels, and bleed levels. The maximum conversion ratios apply only when switching from standard half-life (SHL) Factor IX (FIX) to...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Haemophilia: Medical Treatments (18 Oct 2018)

Steve Brine: No such assessment has been made. The cost of blood factor products in the United Kingdom reflect successful commercial activities on price and clinical management such as universal access to prophylactic treatment regimens. These commercial activities enable the UK to achieve value for money when investing in providing access to treatment. The UK attracts many clinical studies in...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Haemophilia: Medical Treatments (18 Oct 2018)

Steve Brine: NHS England commissions treatments for haemophilia A and haemophilia B, and other bleeding disorders, according to the current British Society for Haematology clinical guidelines. Commissioned services report outcomes via a quality dashboard. Based on the data, NHS England considers that haemophilia population outcomes are adequate, and therefore has not undertaken an assessment of the...
