Health and Social Care: Cystic Fibrosis Treatment (23 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: We want patients living with cystic fibrosis to get the best care possible. Progress in specialised treatment for patients with CF means that people are living healthier and longer lives, but I recognise that it is frustrating for everyone, in particular patients and their families, that a deal on Orkambi has not been reached. It is for Vertex and NHS England to enter negotiations. I urge...

Health and Social Care: Cystic Fibrosis Treatment (23 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: I recognise and share the frustration of patients and their families. The situation has been going on for far too long. I again urge Vertex to accept the offer. The hon. Gentleman has been in touch about a meeting, and I understand that we have responded to say that we will give him a firm date shortly.

Health and Social Care: Cystic Fibrosis Treatment (23 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: As I said to the hon. Gentleman and other hon. Members in the Westminster Hall debate on the drug, a deal is the preferred option. However, the attitude taken by Vertex, which has been called an outlier in this situation, means that my right hon. Friend the Health Secretary has instructed NHS England to look at other options.

Health and Social Care: Cystic Fibrosis Treatment (23 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence process is important, because it is an independent expert review and the way in which we allocate resources sensibly. The Crown use licence is not a quick or easy solution, and it is open to legal challenge, which might delay things even more. Vertex has been offered the biggest settlement in NHS history, and I urge the company to accept...

Health and Social Care: Missed GP Appointments (23 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: Missed appointments are a waste of NHS resources, and we believe that encouraging patients to use the NHS sensibly and responsibly is the right approach. We are encouraging a range of local schemes to help to reduce missed appointments, with clinical commissioning groups and practices embracing technology and adopting a variety of approaches, such as text reminders, patient-recorded bookings...

Health and Social Care: Missed GP Appointments (23 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: Local NHS organisations know their populations best, and that is why the Government support locally led initiatives to reduce missed appointments. The evidence shows us that people are less likely to miss an appointment if they have a convenient option. Swale CCG has a “Did Not Attend” campaign, which will run across the region this summer and support his constituents in making sure that...

Health and Social Care: Missed GP Appointments (23 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: There is no overall estimate of the number of people who miss their appointments. We want to encourage people to be responsible, but we also want to make booking appointments as easy as possible by having things such as online and text booking. NHS England will shortly conduct an access review, which will look at ways of developing a coherent offer to patients in terms of how they access...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (23 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: When drugs have been approved by NICE, there is an obligation to prescribe them. If the hon. Lady will write to me, I shall be able to look into this matter more closely.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Health Services: Technology (23 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: There are three patient/lay representatives on the methods working group with a wide range of experience, covering a range of topic areas, reflecting the programmes under review. Two of the patient/lay representatives also belong to the Patients Involved in NICE coalition. Patient groups will be involved in the review of each of the specific methodological areas as detailed in the paper...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Cancer: Cornwall (23 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: NHS Digital publishes hospital and community health services workforce statistics for National Health Service trusts and clinical commissioning groups in England. However, the information held by NHS Digital does not capture sufficient level of detail to identify those working in cancer care in Cornwall.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Cancer: Diagnosis (23 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: To achieve the NHS Long Term Plan ambition, we are modernising our world-renowned cancer screening programmes by introducing faecal immunochemical testing into the NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme and human papillomavirus as the primary test in the NHS Cervical Screening Programme. NHS England is establishing rapid diagnostic centres, which build on the 10 models piloted through the...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Calea: Parenteral Nutrition (23 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: We are aware that there is currently disruption affecting the supply of parenteral nutrition from the supplier Calea. This is due to necessary changes in their manufacturing process, meaning that Calea is operating at reduced capacity. We understand the concerns of those who use these products. We are working closely with the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, NHS England...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Cancer: Integrated Care Systems (23 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: The NHS Cancer Programme is working closely with regional and Cancer Alliance colleagues in the few remaining areas where integrated care systems are not yet coterminous to assess where boundaries need to change to meet this requirement, to ensure footprints align with cancer patient flows, optimise use of capacity and resources across Alliance geographies and support robust governance.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: HIV Infection: Greater London (23 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: My Rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care announced in January 2019 that places on the Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) Impact Trial would be doubled from 13,000 to 26,000. The planning of the Trial is led by Public Health England (PHE) and NHS England and is overseen by the PrEP Programme Oversight Board jointly chaired by PHE and NHS England, including allocation...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: HIV Infection: Drugs (23 Jul 2019)

Friend the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care’s announcement on 30 January that the Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) Impact Trial would be expanded to 26,000 people, NHS England has committed to fund the PrEP drug and research costs of these additional places, in line with current arrangements. Local authority and clinic participation in the trial is on a...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Radiotherapy: Staffordshire (23 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: The NHS Long Term Plan reaffirms the Government’s ongoing commitment to modernising radiotherapy. The plan specifically promises faster, smarter and effective radiotherapy, supported by greater networking of specialised expertise. This will mean more patients are offered curative treatment, with fewer side effects and shorter treatment times. Part of the Radiotherapy Modernisation Programme...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Medical Treatments (23 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: NHS England does not believe that the closure of the Commissioning Support Programme will leave a gap in the review of treatments. The topics that would have been referred to the Commissioning Support Programme will now be routed to the appropriate appraisal programme, undertaken by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), except where there is a clear rationale not to do...

Seema Kennedy: The National Cervical Screening Programme is planning to publish its updated national guidance on colposcopy and programme management, which will include the management of CIN2 cervical cell changes in England, later this year. The guidance will bring together robust published evidence and current clinical practice to help provide a national consensus on this matter.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Heart Diseases and Strokes: Females (23 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: NHS England has acknowledged the recently published report and will be considering the content. Improving the prevention and treatment of heart attacks and stroke are key aims in the NHS Long Term Plan, with an important milestone being for the National Health Service to help prevent up to 150,000 heart attacks, strokes and dementia cases over the next 10 years. The NHS Long Term Plan...
