    Well at least it seems like you're all in the same boat! Waiting for a reply when others have interviews for the same course isn't much fun!
    Thank you I really hope you hear from them soon!

    I am currently reading NHS SOS and I can't recommend it enough. I thought it would be quite a tricky book, with lots of politics and difficult to understand policies. It's not - it's a genuine, realisitic view of what is happening to the NHS and all the issues surrounding it. It's fairly recent and contains a lot about the Francis Report too (which, if your working as a HCA - i would definitely throw in how you read the report etc etc at interview) so lots of interview points there. Each chapter is written by a different doctor and so far, i'm really impressed with the writing.

    Thank you ameelia, I've looked into the Francis report online and it's really interesting. Definitely handy to throw in at interview.

    Based on mine and friends' interviews last year I'd recommend knowing about the Health and Social Care Act 2012 (basically scrapping PCTs and introduction of CCGs), Liverpool Care Pathway being phased out, GMC, BMA, NICE, PHE and anything that has come up in the news recently. (A and E problems!) Also Francis reports and Greenaway reports may be useful, and what Jeremy Hunt is saying. When I say know about these things, just have a broad overview and a few opinions, and you should be good to go! Hope this helped

    You've applied to four? Love, I applied to at least 40 before I got interviewed.
