The conviction of the GP, Harold Shipman, for murdering several of his patients was taken as evidence that something was fundamentally wrong with medical regulation, and both the Government and the General Medical Council (GMC) have conceded that reform is necessary. However, the real problem is self-regulation itself, which allows the organised medical profession to exploit monopoly power.
