dc.description.abstractAn overview is provided of the status of public participation in bioethical decision making in Great Britain. Evidence that physicians are no longer being left to resolve ethical dilemmas by themselves is to be found in the activities of pressure groups and in increased television and press coverage of such issues as abortion regulation, a recent government bill affecting the confidentiality of medical records, public policy with regard to in vitro fertilization and research on "spare" embryos, and the case of an old woman who died after being given an experimental drug without her informed consent. British medicine still seems to be far less concerned with patients' rights than is American medicine, and it is increasingly recognized within the profession that inadequate attention has been given to the formal teaching of medical ethics in British medical schools.
