  1. Can this be tightened to disallow random spammers? Perhaps you can introduce a vetting system before you let someone join the PsychClub forum?
  2. What planet are you on?
  3. Cascmeister, have you heard about the pandemic affecting this planet?
  4. How is your job affected by the pandemic? How do you conduct your work differently, community and inpatient? Do you look after COVID-19 positive inpatients? Do you have the appropriate PPE? Are you being re-deployed?
  5. Is this another Spops post?
  6. Are you happy to give up your security? Pension, sick leave, death in service, study leave, professional leave, compassionate leave, carers' leave, parental leave, gardening leave, etc etc?
  7. How did PsychClub allow itself to become so compromised?
  8. I agree with Yasir, except for a slight change in order. My preference would be: 1 Job in psychiatry 2 Job in another field 3 Clinical attachment in psychiatry In addition to psychiatric comorbidity that you will come across in 2, there will be transferable medical skills that you will gain, general experience of working for the NHS, and of course the benefits of actually earning. You will have good access to the local psychiatric department and you could always ask them to spend one session a week with them to show your special interest in psychiatry.
  9. Does the screen still show light bleed?
  10. I suppose you're right when you compare yourself to a strawberry picker.
  11. Crapped rates, take home not worth getting out of bed for. You risk personal injury, malpractice complaint, car accident, no sick leave, no study leave, no worker's rights ... You're better off emigrating or going home.
  12. Dear Zoran,

    Thanks for the info.Any MCQ books for  this exam?.

    How long is the exam and how many questions ,please?

    Kind Regards,


  13. You have plenty of time, you don't need to cram. Herring is very readable, learn as much as you can from it and just expand a bit on medical ethics from any other source. Learn well the medico-legal aspects of what you normally do in your medical/psychiatric job, lots of questions will be from there. There is a good mix of basic knowledge and definitions and some more obscure details which you don't really need to know.
  14. I passed it in October last year. All you need is HERRING: Medical Law and Ethics, 6th edition. Pay particular attention to cases described there as some questions are about them. Anything else, just go through the syllabus given on the DLM website and look up definitions and some basic info wherever you can, including Wikipedia. Some questions are related to working knowledge most doctors have (eg order of listing causes of death), and some quite specific to the MHA thus easy for psychiatrists. It is a very doable exam. You can get it done this year in October.
