Derbyniwyd ateb ar 22 Medi 2017

Ken Skates:   The UK Government promised the transfer of rail franchising functions to the Welsh Government in 2014. We are progressing with this procurement on the basis of the agreement and this will enable us to introduce our own vastly improved contract, service and system for rail users across Wales and the borders from 2018. Bidders have been provided with the Welsh Government's priorities at the start of the procurement process and we expect the following high level outcomes for the new rail services contract:

  • Development of new services and increased capacity on existing congested services
  • Modern rolling stock, complying with modern standards.
  • Improved efficiency realising savings which can extend the service further.
  • Co-operation with other transport providers to provide an integrated public transport service.
  • A commercial structure which incentivises the right behaviours with fair commercial returns.

 

TfW was established by the Welsh Government as a wholly-owned, not-for-profit company to provide support and expertise to the Welsh Government in connection to transport projects in Wales. TfW has designed and is currently undertaking the procurement process for the next Wales and Border Rail Service and Metro on behalf of the Welsh Government.
 
Welsh Ministers will be acting under an agency agreement in order to exercise the Secretary of State of Transport's functions to continue with the procurement of the Wales and Borders franchise.

Ken Skates: The cap for a maximum grant award was £75,000 for the Tourism Product Innovation Fund (TPIF) in 2016/17; with no minimum or maximum level of funding via the Regional Tourism Engagement Fund (RTEF). The cap for a maximum grant award was increased to £150,000 for TPIF and RTEF over two years (2017-19) with a minimum grant of £20,000.
A budget of £1,200,000 was agreed for 2016/17 for both the RTEF and TPIF. In 2016/17 we allocated £1,231,224 against 35 projects, with north Wales receiving £445,000 (36%) of the funding to support 12 projects (9 to TPIF, 3 to RTEF).
The scheme is highly competitive and was oversubscribed in 2016/17 with a total of 71 applications received for both funds totalling £3,587,685 (42 applications to TPIF and 29 to RTEF). Eight applications were rejected in the north, 11% against the total amount (6 TPIF and 2 RTEF).
For 2017/2018 we allocated £2,035,000 against 38 projects, with north Wales receiving £515,000 (25%) of the funding to support 11 projects (6 to TPIF, 5 to RTEF). Again the programme was heavily oversubscribed in 2017/18 with a total of 93 applications received for both funds totalling £9,422,085 (67 applications to TPIF and 26 to RTEF). Ten applications were rejected in North Wales, 11% of the total amount (8 TPIF and 2 RTEF).
For 2017/19 we allocated a total budget of £2,584,000 for the delivery of both RTEF and TPIF.
We are due to open the scheme again shortly for 2018/19 and will boost the remaining budget with funds secured via the Rural development Programme.

 
Gofyn i Ysgrifennydd y Cabinet dros Iechyd, Llesiant a Chwaraeon

Steffan Lewis (Dwyrain De Cymru): A wnaiff Ysgrifennydd y Cabinet roi'r wybodaeth ddiweddaraf am yr adolygiad o wasanaethau iechyd meddwl amenedigol gan Gydbwyllgor Pwyllgor Gwasanaethau Arbenigol Iechyd Cymru? (WAQ74171)

Derbyniwyd ateb ar 26 Medi 2017

Ysgrifennydd y Cabinet dros Iechyd, Llesiant a Chwaraeon(Vaughan Gething): At the last meeting of the WHSSC Joint Committee, the Tier 4 Perinatal Mental Health Sub Group presented a report with shortlisted options for future access to inpatient perinatal mental health services. The options included a secured contract with an existing mother and baby unit and establishing a mother and baby unit in Wales. I understand the Tier 4 Sub Group has been asked to develop the options further, with particular reference to the relationship with local specialist mental health services and the impact on patient outcomes.
My letter of 1 August to the Children, Young People and Education Committee, which includes a link to the report, can be found on the Committee website:
http://senedd.assembly.wales/mgConsultationDisplay.aspx?id=256&RPID=1508596009&cp=yes

Steffan Lewis (Dwyrain De Cymru): A wnaiff Ysgrifennydd y Cabinet roi'r wybodaeth ddiweddaraf am werthusiad Grŵp Strategaeth Meddyginiaethau Cymru Gyfan o orkambi, cyffur newydd i drin ffibrosis cystig? (WAQ74175)

Answer received on 25 September 2017

Vaughan Gething: My previous answer to WAQ73727 still applies.
We believe everyone should have access to cost-effective medicines to meet their clinical needs. To achieve this we are guided by the recommendations of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the All-Wales Medicines Strategy Group (AWMSG).
NICE has not recommended lumacaftor/ivacaftor (Orkambi®) for routine use in the NHS in Wales or England; nor has the Scottish Medicines Consortium recommended its use in Scotland. Neither appraisal body recommended its use due to the very high cost charged by the manufacturer and the uncertainties of the longer term benefits of this treatment.
In December last year, NICE re-issued their Technology Appraisal guidance under their “Do Not Do” guidance, emphasising this treatment should not be made routinely available.
The All-Wales Therapeutics and Toxicology Centre (AWTTC) has contacted the manufacturer, Vertex Pharmaceuticals, and strongly encouraged them to make a submission to AWMSG for appraisal. Vertex Pharmaceuticals has still not done so.

Nathan Gill (Gogledd Cymru): Ymhellach i WAQ73905, beth yw costau cysylltiedig darparu cyffuriau o'r fath yn ystod y cyfnod hwn? (WAQ74183)

Derbyniwyd ateb ar 25 Medi 2017

Vaughan Gething: The table below shows the number and net ingredient costs (NIC) of prescriptions per calendar year.  The figures represent prescriptions for tablets and capsules only, where paracetamol or ibuprofen is the primary or sole active ingredient.
 

Prescriptions for paracetamol and ibuprofen tablets
Year20152016
MedicineNumberNIC (£)NumberNIC (£)
Paracetamol1,348,0304,674,357.421,305,4263,785,799,63
Ibuprofen379,2041,136,891.26327,829936,760.63


All prescribers decide on clinical grounds what a patient needs on prescription to help improve their health, based on their professional judgement and the patient's clinical needs.  It is appropriate, for example, to prescribe paracetamol for patients with long-term conditions such as arthritis.
 
Nathan Gill (Gogledd Cymru): Beth oedd y gost i'r GIG o gyffuriau presgripsiwn a ddychwelwyd a heb eu defnyddio i fferyllfeydd yn ystod 2015-16 a 2016-2017? (WAQ74184)

Vaughan Gething: This data is not recorded.

Janet Finch-Saunders (Aberconwy): A wnaiff Ysgrifennydd y Cabinet ddatganiad am amseroedd aros ar gyfer asesiadau gwasanaeth cymorth iechyd meddwl sylfaenol lleol ym Mwrdd Iechyd Prifysgol Betsi Cadwaladr, ac esbonio beth y mae Llywodraeth Cymru yn ei wneud i leihau nifer y cleifion sy'n aros dros 28 diwrnod rhwng cael eu cyfeirio a chael asesiad? (WAQ74189)

Derbyniwyd ateb ar 25 Medi 2017

Vaughan Gething: Latest data for June 2017 published to StatsWales shows that within Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board 83% of people referred for assessment by Local Primary Mental Health Support Services (LPMHSS) were seen within 28 days of referral. This compares favourably with the all-Wales figure of 79% and is within the threshold we have set of a minimum 80% achievement against the target.
In recent years we have provided new annual funding to improve provision for LPMHSS across Wales. This includes £1.5m targeted at all-ages and £800,000 specifically targeted at improving provision for children and young people. I keep health board activity in this area under regular review and discuss progress and what more can be done to improve performance at my regular meetings with health board vice chairs.
