    Try and get involved in research/writing a paper
    Try and do audits
    Do presentations
    Go on courses - ALS, ATLS - whichever is reelvant - even if you have to pay for them yourself. [some trusts are cheap and won't pay for you to do them]
    Keep copies of any positive feedback - letters and cards from patients/patient relatives for instance. Put them in your portfolio
    Do a taster day/week in whatever specialty you want to do.

    Incidentally i didn't do alot of the above so am a bit surprised i got an interview, but there are points going on the application for them. I would be a bit canny though. There is no point doing the monkey work in 20 audits. You are better off designing, leading and instigating changes to clinical practice in ONE audit.

    Personally, I have decided to blame nurses for the outbreaks - particularly if they are "zippy".

    I was also confused by it.

    Probably the media trying to hype up the danger of viruses, so suddenly everything infective is also a virus :p:.

    If they said bacteria or infection, no doubt people would start yelling out antibiotics and claiming how doctors were stupid these days :p:.

    Mind you, they're probably thinking that anyway, given the number of people that have needed an explanation on why antibiotics won't work on viruses :laugh:.
