Abstract
  • It is simply not possible to provide people with all the health care they need. Rationing is inevitable and the public must play a major role in the debate. This publication is about talk and action in health care rationing, and presents the latest thinking and practical experience in rationing today. Six controversial statements are proposed and opposed by internationally respected experts in the book's first section. The action already taken in New Zealand and Sweden described in the book's second section shows how the theory can and must be put into practice. So far, the official line in Britain has been to deny that health care rationing takes place. This publication urges the British government to follow the lead of other countries around the world who have acknowledged the inevitability of rationing and are involving the public in the debate.
