Studying Health and Social Care offers both a stimulating course of study and a route into a large and growing number of careers. Health and social care present numerous challenges within society today as expectations rise, new technologies become available and debates flourish as to how care should be provided and paid for.
- 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.
