    Anybody else considering Ace Medicine?
    I went to that last year. It was really good
    But I would recommend you do it closer to the interview

    HYMS and Exeter did their interviews before Christmas last year. HYMS also gave out some early offers on each date they conducted interviews. The rest of the applicants had to wait until the end of interviews to know their result! Likewise with Exeter and BSMS the majority of offers went out at the end of the interview process in about March time!

    By traditional, do you mean a panel interview? In that case, I think the majority still use that! I know for certain that the following unis do:

    Cambridge
    UCL
    Imperial
    St. Andrews
    Bristol
    Oxford

    And I think Nottingham, Durham and Newcastle still use them.

    I'm sure there are others too!!!

    Definitely watching this thread! my application just got sent, eeek.
    Will you guys do much interview prep with teachers/ parents etc? I'm a reapplicant so have left school, last year a couple of teachers did a mock panel thing for me which was helpful, dunno how keen they would be now I've left though.

    So shall we get the ball rolling or what?

    A girl (aged 14) comes to see her GP in which she requests a pregnancy test. She finds out she is pregnant and wants to abort it without the the parents getting involved.

    What should the GP do?

    It would be wise to consider points like capacity/competency, legal right, patient autonomy, how many weeks, 4 ethics of principle and confidentiality.

    I'm so screwed. I guess it would depend upon the age of the girl and the conditions of the pregnancy, was she raped? I think that if she is 16 or over then her confidentiality should be respected. Is there a reason she doesn't want her parents to get involved? Would it cause her more harm if they knew?
    Ugh I cannot do this stuff!

    You can do it, you just need practise!

    If she was raped or at harm, I would tell her parents and contact appropriate services. However if not, I will have to obey her autonomy and thus I will not break patient confidentiality. I would strongly advise her to tell her parents but I wouldn't coerce her into making a decision. As doctors we have to be trustworthy and honest.
    Also if it's before 24 weeks, abortion will be legal but abortion does carry risks and can be traumatic esp for a 14 y/o girl.

    Ok...

    My response stems from my previous recollection of my ethics preparation from last year so I'm probably outdated or not thorough or just plain wrong.

    It's obviously important to find out how far in the pregnancy is, I think over 24 weeks, an abortion becomes illegal in this country. If over, an abortion is out of the question and you might discuss other options to her such as adoption.
    Her age is also important as if she is 16 and over, she is competent enough to make a decision on termination of her pregnancy.
    If she is under 16, it would be helpful to find out if she might be in danger or if her health is at risk in which case, the GP might discuss involving the police or social services, maybe if she has been raped or receiving abuse.
    Discuss with her, why she does not want to involve her parents and inform her that an abortion is a procedure that is quite emotional to go through and it would be in her best interests to inform her parents or legal guardians so she doesn't have to go through with it alone.
    Respect her right to confidentiality as that level of trust cannot be breached. If she still refuses, respect her decision to. The GP should be reassuring and calm while addressing her as well as assure her that you are there to help her.

    That's all I can remember. Please someone point to any wrong points I might have mentioned. And add to it please as I'm sure there's also more things to consider

    Yes I would say the same we must keep the patient-docotor relationship so she can trust the NHS (hospitals, doctors etc..) in the future. Therefore, keep confidentiality but try to see why/how she can try and get her parents support too
