Freidson distinguishes between physicians’ “technical” autonomy in defining the “content” of their work and their social and economic autonomy in controlling the organization or “terms” of work.
Hospitals shuffled off responsibility for patients to each other: the voluntary hospitals regularly dumping chronic cases onto the municipal sector. Municipal hospitals could, and indeed did, refuse admission to patients coming from outside their local authority area. A further article of faith in the emerging consensus was, therefore, the need to co-ordinate the various systems – voluntary and municipal – that had emerged, and to introduce some rationality into the distribution of resources. The consensus had another ingredient.
Profit-making enterprises are not interested in treating those who cannot pay. The voluntary hospital may not treat the poor the same as the rich, but they do treat them and often treat them well. A system in which corporate enterprises play a larger part is likely to be more segmented and more stratified. With cutbacks in public financing coming at the same time, the two-class system in medical care is likely to become only more conspicuous. This turn of events is the fruit of a history of accommodating professional and institutional interests, failing to exercise public control over public programs, then adopting piecemeal regulation to control the inflationary consequences, and, as a final resort, cutting back programs and turning them back to the private sector.
