Regarding requirements, the NHS site mentioned candidates need to have a 'Strong aptitude for assimilating, analysing and explaining complex concepts, data and statistics' on the DHSC Health Policy Graduate Scheme. Please can you provide an example ? and how this would differ from the Policy and Strategy scheme?

Hi Taome, some examples of the work the department does can be found here: 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

Some of these I think are good examples of where we have used analysis, data and statistics

The main difference between the DHSC scheme and the policy scheme is that DHSC is a part of the Civil Service and so works more closely with ministers and central policy, the terms and conditions are different too
