Eusebius discusses with health ombud Prof. Malegapuru Makgoba the history of medicine during colonial times and after 1994.

What ethics do doctors follow on a day to day basis?

Eusebius McKaiser spoke to the Heath Ombud Professor Malegapuru Makgoba about ethical and unethical medical practises.

The pair also discussed Bioethics and how it has affected people in the past and in the present.

Bioethics is a field of study concerned with the ethics and philosophical implications of certain biological and medical procedures, technologies, and treatments, as organ transplants, genetic engineering, and care of the terminally ill.

Ethics have often come to save politicians in the world.

Professor Malegapuru Makgoba, Heath Ombud

From the 47 years of life in the health profession, I have seen a shift in the value of serving to the value of materialism that has encroached into the profession.

Professor Malegapuru Makgoba, Heath Ombud

Medical doctors like all other professions, we are products of our history, socialisation and political dominance of our time.

Professor Malegapuru Makgoba, Heath Ombud

Patients have a right to know what the doctor thinks of the complaints they've bought. Very often doctors don't volunteer that information.

Professor Malegapuru Makgoba, Heath Ombud

Listen to what callers had to say about medical ethics...
