A student working on a Care of the Elderly attachment in a local district general hospital developed a good rapport with one of the female patients on the ward who had been an inpatient during his entire attachment. The student had been very supportive of the patient when decisions were being made about her future accommodation. Her family had different preferences for her. On the day of her discharge, to show her appreciation, and much to the surprise of the student, the patient offered him a free stay in her Spanish villa for a week during the summer. With finances being tight, the student was very grateful for this offer and immediately accepted with much gratitude. However, when the patient's family became aware of this, they complained to the trust, suggesting that the student had taken advantage of their mother's vulnerability and had abused his position.

As a report highlights the ruinous impact of denying abortion, two medics offer opposing views on the role of personal belief. A rise in the number of healthcare providers who refuse to provide abortion services based on their personal beliefs is having a devastating impact on women and girls around the world, a new study has claimed. Over the past two decades, at least 30 countries — including, most recently, Ireland, Chile and Argentina — have taken steps to improve access to abortion through legislative changes. Many medics have sought to exempt themselves from these new laws, however.
