ABSTRACT
The article reports that a proposal from the British Department of Health & Social Security is threatening professional self regulation for doctors and other health professions by 2008. The proposal is on its way to regulation, while waiting for a bill for its effect. Nevertheless, upon its approval will the regulators be in an independent government having equal partnership of professionals. The proposal is expected to cause changes in the onus of proof at disciplinary hearings.
