In Defence of Situational Ethics, the NHS and the Permissive Society
Journal of Medical Ethics. 1984 Sep; 10(3): 121.
Black, emeritus professor of medicine at Manchester University, briefly outlines his opposition to Adrian Rogers' criticisms in an accompanying article on situational ethics, the British National Health Service, and the permissive society. He contends that it is professional arrogance to place greater reliance on a code of ethics than on the wishes and interests of patients. Black also rejects Rogers' argument that the relationship between "patient and doctor is in general enhanced by the passage of a fee between them." (KIE abstract)
