    tbh, I'm just finding approaching them quite daunting sometimes. They're all so busy
    Ah yes, the "look busy so nobody asks you to do more work" look. You'll soon come to master this yourself. Eye contact is the downfall of leaving work on time.

    Haha. Think I am already doing that :O


    Side note, got into a random debate in our firm on using patient images (MRI CT etc anonymous ofc) in stuff like grand rounds. Half were saying you should get consent separately whilst half said "meh it's anonymous"

    I thought it was the latter, and it was legally allowed. Am I mistaken?

    Currently there isn't a rule that I'm aware of, but bear in mind that only a few years ago you could publish a case study (anonymised etc) without permission, whereas now you're expected to submit written consent forms from all included patients even if they've left the country (or from relatives if they've died). Things are changing and the fact that its anonymous doesn't seem to matter.

    Hey everyone, from your experience... am I allowed on placement with Glandular Fever? I feel well enough, just about, and I know it's only spread through very close contact/ respiratory droplets?

    No one tells you about the fact that medicine is full of hardcore alcoholics in the open days, every time I say to myself "today I will catch up" a sesh appears.

    I thought it was well known that medics tended to work hard play hard.

    You don't have to go to that 'sesh' though

    Asked one of the SpRs. Apparently it doesn't matter. Think he's right:

    Disclosure and use of recordings made as part of the patient’s care

    17. You may disclose anonymised or coded recordings for use in research, teaching or training, or other healthcare-related purposes without consent. In deciding whether a recording is anonymised, you should bear in mind that apparently insignificant details may still be capable of identifying the patient. You should be particularly careful about the anonymity of such recordings before using or publishing them without consent, in journals and other learning materials, whether they are printed or in an electronic format.

    In my current job I have the opposite problem of finishing things fast and having nothing to do despite asking people if they want to offload work as I am free.

    You don't need to go to every sesh. Although my Bake of Sesh yesterday did get out of hand, half a bottle of wine! and I call myself a public health physician. Extrapolating from the previous weeks 1/3 bottle on bake off the semi final will be alone with Mr Pinot and a straw

    Niiiicee... hopefully that means pick of jobs? Anything high on your list?

    It is one of the areas I'm considering when its my turn next year. So you'll have to let me know what you think.

    Every Monday or Tuesday depending on which half class you've been placed in. Why do you want to avoid anatomy? The average Joe doesn't get to dissect humans, so why run away from such priveledge?

    If you're not sure, I'd give yourself a break (follow your uni's policy for calling in sick etc). You may not be infectious but with glandular fever you don't want to push yourself too hard and end up with prolonged issues, fatigue etc.

    I've already submitted my FPAS but was wondering if there is absolutely no way to change it before the deadline? Thanks to anyone who can offer any advice
