    i've got my interview tomorrow and i've done no prep! you only have 15mins to write it, so although it may be an essay-style question, i doubt you'll have enough time to do an intro/conclusion in detail - just remember to spend two mins planning as well-structured answer is always better (!).

    at interview, are they more likely to ask you about general medicine in the news (e.g. new discoveries etc) or specific governmental health policies and their issues (e.g. the NHS reforms, NICE etc)? i don't know what to focus my study on!
    also, in addition to policies such as NICE, what are they likely to ask you about? help would be much appreciated, got my interview tomorrow ahh!

    What are the government health policies?

    Heard from so many people that Kings is being kicked out of the Russell group- just wondering if there is any truth in this and what every one knows about it?

    I've researched NHS reforms and I think I understand those! NICE is quite confusing though really hoping I don't get asked about all that..
    I'm going through all standard questions and apparently they quiz you about your PS quite a bit!
    Best of luck with your interview

    sorry in advance for the long post! its good interview prep for me to write it out too
    basically the whole point of NICE is that they maintain high standards of care by working with the NHS, the Care Quality Commission and Monitor (which monitors the standard of health care, if you hadn't guessed by the name...).their guidelines are based on evidence-based medicine. they regulate the use of finite sources within the NHS, and are responsible for the acceptance or rejection of new drugs within the NHS based on how economically beneficial they are - scandals concerning NICE include the fact that they don't allow some revolutionary drugs onto the NHS treatment plan on the grounds that they are too expensive.

    the current government policies include:
    -health and social care act - increase competition to boost efficiency etc.
    -replacing PCTs by Clinical Commissioning Groups
    -introducing new bodies e.g. Monitor, National Commissioning Board (manage NHS), Health and Wellbeing Boards (oversee public health, run by local authorities and CCGs).

    this is a really basic overview, but probably all you need to know to answer any question they throw at you! if i've got anything wrong, or there's anything to add, please do

    What are the chances?! There's a book written by ISC interview questions and answers second edition, having had my interview I can't disclose questions. However, that will really help and has all the bases covered

    Can anyone who's had an interview clarify whether it is a questionnaire or essay that we have to write on the day?

    Good luck and congratulations to anyone who has one, and fingers crossed to those waiting to hear

    Just wondering for those that have heard - when you accepted the invitation, did it stay "greyed out" or did it return to being able to change the options??
