    Ones that are fairly big and likely to come up in interview

    Not exactly a medical issue, but is of great significance.
    Junior doctor contracts!

    Large policy issues right now:

    Junior contracts (this this this this this this) x100000 know everything about this else fall on your arse

    7-day NHS

    Shape of Training review (if you're wanting to impress)

    Moving point of GMC registration (ditto)


    Issues that are still important:

    Keogh report

    Francis inquiry

    (Initially thought this said "current tropical medicine issue" and was going to get all up in your grill about if you haven't heard of the noble prize for malaria what's the point in talking about tropical medicine as an interest... :p:)

    What's the postcode lottery all about? I understand the scheme but I don't get how it relates with the NHS?

    I'd advise looking on BBC Health as often as possible.
    The Ebola crisis would be useful to know as well.

    Postcode lottery describes how local CCG assign their resources in such a way that artificial divides exist (aka between post codes), where one CCG funds a certain cancer drug (for example) but the other doesn't. It's due to allocation of resources and healthcare policy. Limited pot of money being split different ways. In the previous example the postcode that gets the cancer drug might not get community rehab after heart attack in order to pay for the cancer drug.
