    No, neither have I! I think quite a few people haven't got a reply yet though I think in the other thread the admissions tutor said they're going to send out acknowledgement letters next week? Not quite sure, might be making that one up hahahah but I guess they have received loads of entries

    Well I basically wrote about the history of antibiotics and antibiotic resistance, then I linked it to the impacts of primary healthcare. It was very hard, especially finding information on the impacts. How did you answer yours because I was going to do yours but found the same problem- it was really hard!

    I literally couldn't find any info on your topic haha so well done!! for mine, I kinda researched developing countries and the reasons why they couldn't provide quality care, then talked about how some developing countries with limited resources can. So I guess I just took 'healthcare with limited resources' as meaning ones in developing countries but I couldn't really find much info on limited resources in developed countries like the NHS.. ahh the end of March is so far away 😭

    It said its an informal lunch so I'm wearing a dress I think (it's not casual but it's not really very formal either) is your teacher coming? Mine couldn't come so they said I can bring a parent I look forward to meeting you there then!
