This paper sets out to delve into the relationship trust and professional authority in the context of health care. Understood in its micro-political terms and conceived as impacting on individual organisational levels and the socio-political; this relationship stands at the interface of competing pressures working to produce the increasing complexity of social life. 'Trust' is inextricably linked with uncertainty and complexity while professional authority rests on the specialist knowledge claimed by the range of experts and technologists that inhabit the spaces through which social life is governed and complexity managed.
