Researching "awareness of the current NHS context"?

Post by DanJJJJJJ » Tue Mar 21, 2017 10:45 pm

Hi all,

Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place but - I've noticed that being able to discuss "demonstrating your awareness of the current NHS context" seems to be a key part of DClinPsych interviews (at least on some courses).

I work in the NHS so have some ideas but I wonder if anyone can direct me to appropriate reading material on this? A good overview perhaps? Thinking about it I don't really know much about this from the point of view of clinical psychology.

Many thanks

Hi Dan

I find the Guardian news website a really good source of information for summarising up key issues in mental health in the NHS. Specifically linked to Psychology you have the New Savoy Partnership which has a lot of information on there and thenationalelf is also a good website.

The HSJ is also really good, but it needs a subscription - however, some Trusts subscribe so check with your library.

Thank you for the replies. I found some good stuff on the NHS England website as well if anyone else is interested in this.
