Welcome to the latest Hot Topics podcast with Dr Neal Tucker. This week we think about monkeypox. Do we need to worry? What do we need to look out for? Can my pet rat give it to me?
Beyond a disease very few of us are likely to ever see, we look at new research on improving mobility in people with frailty and sarcopenia - can exercise classes and nutrition make a real-world difference?

Our final piece of research examines whether treating mild hypertension in pregnancy is beneficial or detrimental to mother and baby. Are the NICE guidelines right?
