It is instructive I think to look at this marketing conflated as "education" from four years ago: https://holeousia.com/2013/03/18/medical-education-revisited/ My petition fort a Sunshine Act for Scotland was closed a year-and-a-half ago. The public were consulted and agree, in majority, that it is a necessary first step to ensuring scientific integrity. However the Scottish Government has provided no updates on this to the public that they consulted: Here is a letter just published in the BMJ that I wrote with my wife Sian who is a GP in Falkirk: "We want to gain the public’s trust, but are we listening to them?" : http://www.bmj.com/content/358/bmj.j4203.full?ijkey=N6rPw2zzNPnc9J6&keytype=ref
