Hi Jacob, as an employee of the Department of Health and Social Care, you'll be involved in a variety of different activities, including drafting policy, engaging in parliamentary processes. A few examples of the types of work we do as a department can be found at the following links: www.gov.uk/government/news/uUK  response to the ebola outbreak in north kivudrc, https://antimicrobial-resistance-amr-information-and-resources/, https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/multi-agency-statutory-guidance-on-female-genital-mutilation, https://www.gov.uk/government/case-studies/artificial-intelligence-robots-in-ipswich-hospital, https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/chief-medical-officer-on-the-amesbury-nerve-agent-incident, https://www.gov.uk/government/news/new-nhs-app-will-make-it-quicker-and-easier-to-access-health-services
