What is an expert?

So what has this got to do with expertise?

Well, let us take a grossly simplified map of an imaginary healthcare system starting with the public. The public want to live a long age and have a healthy life. Alas, that invariably means some form of treatment. Gov provides this because it’s a vote winner but that requires tax which is used in budgets by the Health Service to provide treatment centres which offer the treatments. Alas, treatment isn’t a static thing. There is constant range of new treatments appearing on the market. At the same time, once remarkable treatments become routine, even dull. We draw this as a pipeline of evolving components. The square box (the connection to the pipeline) is simply considered an average of the pipeline itself. In this case, more treatments are fairly well defined than those that aren’t.
