    I was wondering if I could include a patient case in my personal statement without mentioning their name, would that be a breach of patient confidentiality? I'm a bit unsure of this as it probably wouldn't look good to the admissions tutors if I was to break such a rule.

    So just saying something alone the lines of
    "An elderly patient with cervical cancer"
    Would be fine?

    Me too, I have done the same, but haven't mentioned any patient information (I have been told that could lead to immediate rejection!)
