Abstract: Professional ethics are the forms that determine professional attitudes, they are the principles that determine which ideas or actions are considered right or wrong. Professional ethics determine professional etiquette, rules of behaviour towards colleagues and what is more important towards patients. Until quite recently, professional ethics still reflected the ideas of the time that dominated the arguments preceeding the medical Acts of the 19th century which led to normal professional recognition for registered practitioners. The subject of professional ethics-especially medical ethics- is a topic which is very subjective and we see that all strata of society have their own different views about it, views that have been publicized widely in books, journals, papers, seminars etc, thus giving opportunity to interested individuals and organisations to establish their own norms of medical ethics against the generally accepted principles.
