Annual Report of Council, 1986-1987: Medical Ethics
BMJ (British Medical Journal). 1987 Mar 28; 294(6575): ARC, 28-30.
Recent activities of the Council of the British Medical Association (BMA) related to ethical and public policy issues are described. Concerning contraception for minors, the BMA continues to recommend that only in "exceptional" cases should contraceptive advice be given without parental consent. Among the other issues considered by the BMA were the "intimate searches" section of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act; the protection of personal health information held by the National Health Service; the establishment of a national ethical research committee; the General Medical Council's revised guidance on advertising; the government's report on "Primary Health Care"; and investigations of doctors' involvement with torture or collaboration with oppressive regimes.
