Select Committee on Science and Technology Written Evidence


Memorandum from Dr Stephen Robert Brennan

  As a General Physician in the NHS for over 30 years, I was involved in the "debate" about the Warnock Report & the Polkinghorn Report. I do not feel that the HFE Act or Authority has properly maintained Ethical Standards in Health Care in these sensitive areas, and this is because the Make-up of the Authority is so weighted in favour of Scientists and those who do not have the Sanctity of Human Life at heart. I call for a complete overhaul of the Act and a return to some basic principles of how we deal with Human Beings.
