This paper reviews the work of the Swedish Commission of Inquiry formed in 1975 to propose a new law governing medical care. Based on interviews with commission members, the interests and goals of participating groups are identified. These are compared to the outcome as published in the final report in 1980. Consumer interests gained few of their objectives, while physicians gained almost all of theirs. For others, results were mixed.
