    I think that as they're still considered a minor the court could overrule the decision if there is risk of serious harm or death (Is this correct?), but I'm not too sure how that would work out to be honest, if the child is refusing, would he will be sedated and treated on? :confused:

    I had another look and basically in Scotland if the child is competent and has capacity then they are allowed to refuse and the parents cannot override the decision.

    In England it says that it is more complex and if child who has fully capacity and is competent refuses treatment within their best interests then the case can go to court.

    Then I'm certain that if the teenager is 16 or over and competent/ has fully capacity then they can refuse treatment regardless of whether or not it is in their best interests.

    Correct but if the 16 or 17 year old refuses treatment and it's in their best interest( life changing) then the court can still override their decision because they are a young person, not an adult yet.

    ohh I didn't know that Thanks and thenonce they are 18 even if the treatment is in their best interests/ life changing they are allowed to refuse it since they have the right to autonomy?

    just wondering, do you know the answer to:

    Currently do foreign students who come to the UK to study NOT have to pay to see a GP but if they want hospital treatment(e.g. operation) then they do?

    I would answer it but I'm not too sure..but I believe they are entitled to GP treatment as if they need a follow up or referral, then a GP is needed. They have to be enrolled on a course and have an address.

    I thought that if they can prove they are a full time student then it's free (both GP and hospital treatment)
    This is certainly the case for EU students, I would want clarification for further afield though

    For UKCAT unis they began to receive our scores this week, so maybe next week we should start hearing more
    For Non UKCAT/BMAT unis some people have heard e.g. Birmingham
    BMAT - obviously no news haha
