Sample text

The solons of the professions of medicine, nursing, law, and religion in the state were asked to donate their time and reviewed all the material in order to refme and validate it from a professional point of view. They also served as speakers who met for discussion and then conducted the meetings. As a result of this exercise, we asked for feedback on the various problems that people felt they were facing in their health care delivery system. About 1000 responses were received from people on issues that they considered particularly important.

So we had to pay government to pay attention. In the end we paid about $18 000 to government to pay attention to people's problems with bioethics. We have a health planning system that divides the state up into three areas. We asked each area to find citizens interested in bioethical experiences. These came mainly from those who had suffered from the existing system in some way - those, for example, with a retarded child not considered eligible for care at the state hospital but not eligible either for care at home; people caught in the bureaucratic vagaries of the system.

And I would like to re-emphasise that clinical and preventive medicine are intrinsically different in a whole range of areas. The population or community is different from the sum of the individuals who make it up. Society has an ethos which is built into its institutions, rather than its individuals, so that, for example, in large bureaucratic organisations employing many thousands of people, the loss of one individual, even the top man, makes no real difference to the institution. It continues with its own ethos, with its own traditions, irrespective of individuals and their power.
