    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

    Yeah it would really help if parents were involved somehow

    So shall we get the ball rolling or what?

    A girl 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.
    How old is she? This question is only vaguely interesting if she is under 16.

    Ooops I forgot to include she was 14, that's why I mentioned parents.

    I read an interview question that was 'What setbacks do you think doctors find in their careers?'
    I know a lot of hardships/pressures that a doctor may face however wondered if anyone had suggestions of setbacks?

    The fact that the current government is out to discredit, demoralise and devalue us, probably so they can eventually justify privatising the entire system (because obviously private companies always work brilliantly and never go bankrupt costing hundreds of millions of taxpayers' money *cough*banks*cough*) is a bit ****.

    This sounds really stupid but do you think they'll care about dyed hair at interview? Mine is dyed auburn but I'm a natural brunette. It could be seen as natural because I'm quite pale with blue eyes but it just occured to me they might not like it?
    What are they generally like at med school with piercings/tattoos/dyed hair?

    I'm sure they'll be fine with dyed hair as long as it's not any wild colour. As I understand it you're trying to project the image that you are the sort of person who would fit well in to the professional / responsible role.

    That's the same with piercings and tattoos / piercings - if they're discrete then hopefully it won't be a problem, but nothing too out there might be a good idea!

    Lack of continuity of care 'cause instead of looking after your patients all the time you're constantly on the back foot either handing them over to somebody else or having them handed over to you. It's difficult to feel really confident when almost everybody, no matter how complicated, is somebody you've only just met.

    Starting a family can be a set-back depending on what path you go down, so can moving jobs or your partner moving jobs because you can be quite tied down (unless you become a GP).

    Having to get involved in managing millions of £££ despite having literally ZERO training in management, finance or anything related and also having a vested interest in where the money goes (which is a double edged sword when you have to say no to things!).

    Horrible question to ask you, I reckon!

    Current and interesting issues in healthcare...
    NHS 'Reforms'
    GP Commissioning
    Francis Report - main findings
    Principles of allocating limited resources
    Movement of care out into the community
    24 hour GPs
    Patient choice

    I have no idea if they'd come up in your interview or not but they're all very relevant and interesting anyway! Having thought about a few things like resource allocation, community care (involving social care, charities etc., trying to keep people out of hospitals) can never do you any harm.

    How about some of the research that is going on recently?

    discovery of neuron apoptosis inhibiting gene (Was quite big in the news recently)
    Advancements in surgical technology
    The usual X cures cancer/ Y causes cancer crap (I would avoid that tbh)

    Also allowing doctors with Aids to preform surgery
    Banning Homosexuals from donating blood ( I think there's a 12 month limit now)
    Increase in prion disease (vCJD)

    Tbh, there are so many interesting things going on, I'm surprised you want to do medicine and

    How about you demonstrate your curiosity for the subject, an ability to conduct targeted research, and an awareness of the importance of continued professional development ( all key requirements of medical students and thence doctors) by finding out for yourself....?
