Welcome to another Hot Topics podcast from NB Medical with Dr Neal Tucker leading you through the latest news and research in general practice.  Of course, we must touch on the demise of Boris Johnson and how he might still be in power if he'd just learned a thing or two from general practice.

Meanwhile, in research, we look at prescribing trends in anxiety disorders, whether bariatric surgery can reduce cancer risk in overweight people, and two papers on covid vaccination against Omicron, first on efficacy in kids, second on the relative merits of vaccination vs natural immunity,  plus could a new vaccine for RSV be just around the corner?

And with hot weather finally coming to the UK,  time to remind ourselves about the symptoms and signs of heat-related illness in our KISS from NB.
