Health policy is influenced by many sources. However, a prerequisite for a healthy health sector is an open dialogue, also in public. The opposite undermines the principle of patient rights, and squandering legitimation for the health sector and the physicians, too. The Scandinavian-Model is often mentioned in ensuring the citizen's rights, and open-minded debates. However, it may now and then be disrepected too much by the principals in power. We therefore found it of interest to report some concrete cases from the last decade, where physicians in Denmark exercised their right of freedom of speech, and as a consequence being dismissed, on the grounds of un-cooperativeness, but actually should be seen as a form of censure.
