Example text

Research is principally conducted to enhance care and relies on several principles, one of which is beneficence (see above): 'The principle of beneficence requires that health care professionals engaged in research act to promote the well-being and benefit of participants' (Singleton and McLaren 1995, p. 118). This important principle is supported by the professional codes, all of which emphatically insist that the well-being of the client is paramount for the registered practitioners. A further central principle of research in any field is that of non-maleficence, which, although closely related to beneficence, relates to any harm that might occur.

An individual independent contractor is contracted to provide a service. Contractors are usually paid in full for their services and must make their own arrangements for the payment of tax and national insurance. In health care, an example of this might be provided by a nursing home that contracts therapy services from a self-employed chartered physiotherapist in independent practice. By the time someone applies for a particular job, the employer has usually devised a job description or job specification.

The 1990 NHS and Community Care Act basically endorses the concept as it was originally envisaged - a service funded by the taxpayer. The concept brings forward one immediate economic difficulty in contemporary Britain, that of the rising age of the population. As more people live for longer in retirement, the tax product of their income is dropping and affecting the government's own income from taxation. Income from taxation is also affected by levels of unemployment. A falling taxation product not only affects the NHS, but also other taxation-based social welfare schemes such as the payment of old-age pensions and social security benefits.
