Who Should we Treat? by Christopher Newdick

Book Description

How should we allocate NHS resources between different patients and treatments? Increasingly, patients are regarded as 'consumers' of medical services, and yet demand for medical care exceeds the resources that are made available for it. How should the NHS manage the dilemmas presented by scarce resources? Who Should We Treat? examines the economic, political, and legal environment of patients' rights in the NHS.
