Wendy Savage: Patients' Choice and Doctors' Responsibilities

Professor Wendy Savage delivers the 2011 Richard Price Memorial Lecture


Professor Wendy Savage, celebrated obstetrician and campaigner for women’s rights in fertility and childbirth, will deliver the 2011 Richard Price Memorial Lecture at Newington Green Unitarian Church. The speaker is asked to address an important or topical aspect of liberty, reason and ethics.

In recent years there has been an increasing emphasis on doctors’ responsibilities and accountability. When things go wrong – as they have done in several high profile cases in recent years – there is the General Medical Council to support the rights of patients and hold doctors to account. So too with patients’ choice. Nowadays we are all supposed to share in decision-making and pick options that suit us.

But what is the reality? Has the General Medical Council actually made doctors more accountable to patients? And do patients really have a choice? How does that square with an NHS looking for economies and cuts?

These are the issues to be tackled by Wendy Savage.
