    again, if the patient is competent and refusing blood transfusion, you must ensure they understand all the risks of not accepting it and suggest speaking to others in their religious group about getting it. If they final verdict is still no, you must accept it.
    But I read somewhere else that u can get a court order within 30 mins allowing u to perform the blood transfusion

    these chapters explain it much better than I could
    so as long as they remain competent it would be ok?

    competence is in relation of the procedure for children, so a 9 year old would be competent for having a plaster put on a small cut but would not be competent for life saving treatment such as blood transfusions i guess

    this is if the child is not competent e.g. unconscious and the parents refuse to give consent for life saving treatment, then you can get a court order to get the treatment OR do the treatment if you can back up your actions to a court after.

    But I don't understand why this is the case? So even if the child know exactly what blood transfusion is, can outline the pro's and cons would still not be able to make this decision?

    This topic is confusing me so much because I understand some cases where age doesn't matter as long as the child has competence but are there also other cases where something would be inappropriate for a child to have said procedure done on them but again age would not matter as long as the child has competence? Or are there distinct regulations that come with this? (I don't really think this paragraph makes sense)

    ok, so if I take the above example which was posted, I know if a 14year old asks you for contraceptive and he/she is competent you do not inform anyone else of their choice, but would you follow by their requests? Bearing in mind the legal age is higher than 14?

    Also, would this be the same case- as in you would not tell the parents- if the child was competent, but only 12 years old?

    yeah i get where you're coming from, it's difficult because different scenarios will have different approaches to it.

    In terms of sexual health, the doctors must follow the Fraser Guidelines which means that if the patient is likely to carry on having sexual activity with or without contraception, it's best to give it to them as it's important to promote safe sex.

    If you can't convince them to involve their parents, you have to respect this unless they're in danger. "Young people are owed the same duties of care and confidentiality as adults"

    Hmm I don't mind making a groupchat on whatsapp. But it depends, is everyone okay with that? It'll be purely interview prep and you can leave if you're uncomfortable

    I came across a question which said 'What branch of medicine interests you and why'

    would you talk about what you would learn at uni or post degree once you actually are in work?
