Abstract

Urological conditions can often be a source of considerable anxiety for both parent and child but with an understanding of normal anatomy and basic conditions it is possible to manage many presentations in the community and provide reassurance to families.

 

Abstract

There are over 8.5 million dogs in the United Kingdom with approximately 30% of all households owning a domestic dog. However, while there has been an increasing popularity of the domestic dog, so there has been a significant increase in the number of dog bite injuries (DBI) recorded.

Abstract

It is important that doctors and health professionals are aware that children and young people who are sexually exploited can present across a range of health settings with a variety of physical and mental health problems, and actively consider the possibility of sexual exploitation in their assessments.

‘GPs are ….in an ideal position to notice early signs of childhood sexual exploitation when children present in their surgeries, if alert to possible indicators.

We are well into 2016. So much happening in healthcare.

 

The government managed to extract defeat from the jaws of victory as the junior doctors reinstated their February strike. Perhaps the claim from the employers that 15 of the 16 issues had been agreed prior to the most recent talks was an economy of the truth. It did not augur well that the Prime Minister, in a Radio 4 interview, indicated that ultimately the government will not allow a veto over the contract, implying it could be imposed. Indeed, imposition it will be. Around the world government confrontation with medical professionals has usually ended with a climb down by the former. I think history will repeat in this instance.  

Abstract

Teenage pregnancy is frequently encountered by general practitioners who are often the teenager’s first encounter with the health services. Despite falling rates and intense government initiatives over the past decade to address high rates of teenage pregnancy, the United Kingdom continues to have one of the highest teenage birth rates in Western Europe. Teenagers have unique social and medical issues in pregnancy which require careful management from their general practitioners to help optomise pregnancy outcomes and reduce recurrence of repeat pregnancy.
