    this sounds really dumb but I don't really know a great deal about what is currently going on in medicine in the UK - it really interests me, hence why I would like to know more about it etc, but I don't know where to start?
    In particular, I wanted to learn about the current issues etc so does anybody have any links to point me in the right direction to get started? Or maybe any good books since I have the summer free now?

    You could try and get hold of current copies of the British medical journals, they are produced quite frequently so they're pretty up to date.

    Easier would be:

    The StudentBMJ
    Health pages of the BBC/Guardian/Telegraph/Independent
    Follow vocal NHS commentators on Twitter - there are many.

    Hi there,

    Have you heard of Richard Lehman's Weekly Review? They're funny and informative reviews of medical papers and research published on the BMJ blogs. His stuff is a great read!

    Also, we have free weekly medical news summary blogs, which summarise and link to health stories from the NHS news pages, the BBC, Telegraph, Guardian and other newspapers.

    We publish them every Monday, and you can read them by visiting our blogs page and sorting by 'medical news'.

    Hope you find the above useful!

    I think the internet is a decent place to start.
