Abstract

Clinical medicine is currently under the spotlight in many countries. Governments and the public are beginning to raise questions about competence to practice (sometimes referred to as ”fitness for purpose”) particularly in the light of several well publicised cases of incompetence and failure to act, such as in the case in the UK of the Bristol cardiac surgeons.
