This programme focuses on health and social care policy and offers both a stimulating course of study and a route into a large and growing number of careers. Health and social care policy presents numerous challenges within society today: should ‘cloning’ or ‘assisted suicide’ be permitted? Should fertility treatment be available as a right on the NHS? Should older people pay for their own care? Are services delivered fairly to all sections of the community? You will have the opportunity to consider these and many other questions relating to these important topics.
