NHS Hot Topics Questions

Below is a selection of Medical School interview questions on the theme of ‘NHS Hot Topics’.

The answer guides have been put together by medics who have successfully navigated interviews at top Medical Schools.

Remember, though, that an interview is about an individual, so there are no hard and fast rules. The answer guides are only examples and are not exhaustive. They should be used to stimulate your thinking — not repeated verbatim at your interview.

In the case of hot topics, it is also important to note that these change all the time. The ones below give a sense of approach, more than what it currently in the news.
