The global health care sector outlook for 2015 is mixed. Treatment advancements and government initiatives to increase access to care should drive sector expansion but pressure to reduce costs is escalating. Growing populations and consumer wealth are increasing demand for health care services but aging societies and chronic diseases are forcing health payers to make difficult decisions on benefit levels. In the midst of this tug-of-war, many historic business models and operating processes will no longer suffice. Four major trends are anticipated to impact stakeholders along the global health care value chain in 2015: cost, adapting to market forces, transformation and digital innovation, and regulations and compliance.
Health care expenditure as a share of GDP in the UK rose steadily from 6.5% in 1997 to 9.7% in 2009, and then fell to 9.2% in 2011, where it remained in 2012. The Economic Intelligence Unit estimates that spend as a percentage of GDP will increase to 9.6 percent in 2013. While there is a general consensus that public funding will need to increase to keep pace with increasing demand from an aging and expanding population, estimates on the extent of funding growth vary widely. One key factor influencing the likely size of the funding growth is likely to be the outcome of the May 2015 election. While political parties continue to support the idea of NHS health care free at the point of need, the differences between the parties is by how much and where the funding will come from?

Dentistry is a demanding course in which undergraduates gradually develop their technical skills on a base of academic teaching about the biology of the human body and, more specifically, the still fast-developing science behind dentistry. Recent decades have seen major advances in technology transforming the way dentists deal with issues both of tooth decay and patients’ cosmetic concerns. Universities update students accordingly.
Typically, clinical work begins in the second year, with the first few terms spent in pre-clinical study where the emphasis will be on the basic medical sciences: first year subjects will include anatomy, physiology, oral biology and biochemistry.
This academic work continues throughout the course, but after the first year students will also start developing their dental skills, under supervision. Work typically begins in a teaching hospital, but can also involve periods spent in community dental practices.
