Free Agent Defining Diagram
"Agent" whose actions are not subject to another's control.
"Authorised Agents" operate within the bounds of their authority. However, the model needs to account for the possibility of actions being undertaken outside these limits. Patients, for example, where they perform activities, would normally do so as Free
An example of acting outside the bounds set would be where a person working for an NHS Trust operates an illicit sideline selling confectionery. In this case the person is operating as a "Free Agent" relative to the NHS Trust.
