A new report released today from the Nuffield Trust shows the potential savings which can be achieved by delivering community based end-of-life care.

Dr Jane Collins, Chief Executive of Marie Curie, said: “Very few people at the end of life say that they would want to die in hospital, yet half of people in the UK currently do. This research is really important as it provides further evidence to inform decisions about shifting care for people with a terminal illness away from hospitals into the community, leaving vital hospital resource for people who really need to be there."

We’re not going to lie to you – making an application to study at Oxford or Cambridge is a big (and challenging) step. The competition will be fierce, and as well as needing top-notch grades and a winning personal statement you’ll also have to navigate your way through the interview process – and you’ll have less time to do it in!
On the other hand, if you do end up securing yourself a place you’ll have a ticket to one of the top universities in the country (not to mention the world). This guide will take you through the Oxbridge application process step-by-step, and – while we’re by no means guaranteeing you a place – should help you maximise your chances of success…

If you’re interested in the medical profession and you get a kick out of helping people, you should strongly consider a degree in nursing. Nurses play a key role in patient experience and often act as the first point of contact for patients and visitors. While it is the doctors that make diagnostic decisions and perform surgical procedures, it is often the nurses who take responsibility for administering medical treatment.

As nursing is a vocational course, your degree will give you the chance to practice the skills you have learned in a practical working environment. The key theoretical principles of healthcare provision will be taught in lectures and discussed in further detail in seminars and tutorials, while the application of this knowledge will be taught in a more practical setting (such as on a hospital ward) where you will acquire first-hand skills and experience in dealing with sick patients. Most degrees are three years in length, and there tends to be a 50:50 split between lecture time and practical time.
It’s also worth noting that the majority of Bachelor of Nursing (BN) courses will relate to a specific patient group, with the most common options being adult nursing, child nursing and mental health nursing. You should make sure you do some thorough research into each of these before applying, just to make sure you pick the one that’s best suited to your interests!
