It will not have escaped your attention that the NHS is undergoing significant reforms. You may think that what is happening is irrelevant, but it is going to impact on the type of health service you will be working in. Whilst you don’t need to know the detail (trust me it is really boring and there is a lot of jargon to understand), it is instructive to see how the debate is being constructed. I’ve posted two tweets citing articles from Ben Goldacre who writes the Bad Science column in The Guardian. He makes some interesting points about the selective use of statistics by government ministers. Check out the editorial in the BMJ that he refers to as well.
