Why are we wasting the wisdom of senior retired doctors ?

When judges retire, they are usually not put out to pasture. Some of them practice as lawyers, but many will be appointed by the government to head judicial committees or fact-findings bodies because they want to make good use of their lifetime of accumulated judicial experience. This is true for retired IAS officers as well.

I wonder why the government doesn't do exactly the same with senior retired doctors. These could be doctors who were in private practice; or medical college professors who are still in the prime of their life. These doctors are cognitively as sharp as ever, but no longer clinically active. Why not use them to provide medical inputs to the legislature when crafting medical laws; to bureaucrats when designing medical policy; and to the judiciary when they need a medical expert opinion ?

They could provide very valuable inputs because they would be unbiased and objective, and would be seen as giving back to society in the autumn of their life. They understand the way the system works, and would be able to craft win-win situations, because they could be the voice of the medical profession.
