My chief reason for so doing was that I felt that my role in private practice assumed more and more that of being a living lubricant for the cogs of a conveyor belt that brought fabulous wealth, by the standards of most South Africans, to a number of our practice's important "customers" and my colleagues. And my role became less and less that of an anesthesiologist. However, with hindsight, in many respects, I have moved from one conveyor belt and industrial process, to another.
