Abstract

This book seeks to reappraise the role played by public law adjudication in questions of healthcare rationing. It identifies key points of correspondence between recent theory and practice in health policy and the values and principles of public law. Utilising comparative material, it argues that judicial intervention in allocative questions can assist in fostering deliberation upon the need for rationing, which has been seen as a necessary condition for the establishment of legitimacy in this controversial field of public policy.
