Can a doctor distribute leaflets to public regarding his/her professional activity?


Dr KK Aggarwal and Ira Gupta    23 November 2017

No. In a decision taken by the Delhi Medical Council dated February 15 2001 DMC 14 2 2001 the Council observed Dr. RSV was soliciting patients through distributing unsolicited leaflets as is evident from the complaint and deposition of Mr M M Paikeday. As such Dr. RSV has not complied with MCI Code of Medical Ethics. MCI Act 6.1.1 states Soliciting of patients directly or indirectly by a physician by a group of physicians or by institutions or organisations is unethical.
