dc.description.abstractThe era of medical paternalism is past and the public must be involved in the moral debate over ethical issues in medicine. Thomas, Chairman of the British Medical Association's Central Ethical Committee, agrees with these points made by Ian Kennedy in the 1980 Reith Lectures on medical ethics, but rejects the latter's emphasis on consumerism and stricter regulation of physicians. It is the public's responsibility to provide the general moral framework within which physicians make clinical decisions, but the public must then trust the medical profession which in turn must not abuse that trust.
