A senior member of the Royal College of General Practitioners is under investigation after she told medical students they should act less 'overtly gay' to pass their exams.

Dr Una Coales, wrote a guide for students on how to pass the Clinical Skills Assessment in which she gave advice on how to 'neutralise' bias from college examiners.

In one passage covering what she referred to as the 'camp category' she wrote: 'One candidate was facing a 3rd sitting and yet no one had told him that his mannerisms, gait, speech were too overly gay, and that he was sitting an exam administered by a right-wing conservative Royal College.

'So I advised him to lower and deepen his high-pitched voice, neutralise the excessive body movements and walk like a 'straight' man.'
