Radio: New from “The Ethics Committee”

New episodes of Radio 4’s “The Ethics Committee” are now available via the BBC iPlayer website. In each episode Joan Bakewell is joined by a panel of experts to wrestle with the ethics arising from a real-life medical case.

Current episodes address the questions:

  • How far should a medical team go to prevent a young woman from ending her life?
  • Should a surgeon agree to a young woman’s request to amputate her leg?
  • Can conscious patients stop treatment even when this will lead to their deaths?
  • How do you make decisions about an unconscious woman when she is pregnant?
