    Thanks! I was thinking that too but wasn't too sure as of to if the information could be withheld from the parents?
    Is it legal to do so? Since she's under 16 wouldn't the parents have to know? (The same for with pregnancys)
    Apparently, if an Under 16 explicitly asks you not to tell their parents, you can't say anything. All you can do is try and convince them that's it's best for the parents to know.
    Patient Confidentiality gets real sticky sometimes

    The unis found out yesterday.
    How long you're going to wait depends on the unis you've applied to, their selection procedures, and luck.
    Last year, the earliest interviews went out about a week or two after UKCAT scores were released.

    I know it's exciting!
    I applied to Birmingham, Newcastle, Nottingham and Oxford, what about you ? So yeah I did the BMAT... I have no idea how it went, I had to guess a lot of questions, and I'm generally rubbish at S2 so that probably went badly. I have good GCSEs though and that's half of Oxford's scoring so I'm hoping that'll make up for it Did you do it?

    I don't think it is illegal to withhold the details of the situation from the parents. I think even those who are underage would still have the full rights of confidentiality. But to check you could look on the gmc website or something

    Gillick competency and the Fraser guidelines (although specific to contraception), a very important issue which often comes up at medical school interviews.

    With respect to sexual activity and abortion, providing the child is over 13 and deemed competent you cannot force them to tell their parents and you must uphold confidentiality. This is not the case for when the child is 12 or under as the law states that being aged under 13 means you cannot consent to sex lawfully, even if you say yes.

    Confidentiality is a very important issue that you will all face throughout your careers, it is a very big part of my practice currently and I am only a second year medical student. Many guidlines can be found through the GMC which elude to confidentiality. One good example is if relatives call up asking about appointments, if you are trying to remain confidential it is important to state "if your partner/daughter/son came to see me...".

    No worries,
    Confidentiality is a complex issue to grasp, and there is a very fine line between right and wrong.
