This section will focus on providing background information about NHS current or ‘hot’ topics, which you may be asked to discuss during your medical school interview.

All topics have a wider impact on medicine within the UK, and some have associated ethical considerations, which may feature in your discussions of these; throughout this section, we’ll provide more information on each in relation to the different topics covered. Having a broader understanding of ‘medical ethics’ from the previous section will also support you to be able to critically analyse the related ethical implications during your discussions.

Finally we’ll provide some starting points for additional research for each topic, allowing you to explore them further and enabling you to confidently discuss each should they arise.
