Finally, this discussion has assumed so far that the consumer opinions elicited are about the policies to be chosen. But those asked for have usually referred to past or current policies rather than to possible future ones. To the extent that this is so they constitute even less of a logically adequate grounding for the recommendations made, which must really rest on the researchers' judgements. Thus their work becomes a sociology of diagnosis rather than of prescription and treatment, however the data are used.

Finally, old men have the special problem that retirement deprives them of a major role and interest; work has been the foundation of their self-respect and of the respect they receive from others even within the family. It is suggested, therefore, that subsidised workshops for the mobile and light work at home for the housebound should be provided, though this would not be economically viable (p. 151). The whole trend of these recommendations is that whatever will make life happier and easier for old people should be done.

That seems optimistic. The chief remaining point of interest in connection with the policy recommendations made is to do with the power position of the medical profession in Britain. Any recommendation likely to impinge on doctors' interests must take this into account, since the profession is highly organised and has an excellent bargaining position. I do not know what Ann Cartwright knew as she wrote about the likely reaction of organised doctors to her ideas; perhaps it would be sympathetic.
