dc.description.abstractThe Swedish government recently published a report on priorities in health care. It was written by a cross party group of politicians and drew extensively on the views of the public, health professionals, experience of earlier local exercises in priority setting, and research based evidence. It laid down an ethical framework for approaching issues of health care rationing. Underpinning the framework are the principles of human dignity, need and solidarity, and cost efficiency. The Swedish approach thus contrasts with the British experience of many local initiatives but an absence of national political guidance. The absence of political consensus on many aspects of social policy in the United Kingdom is a major obstacle to developing an agreed ethical framework within which decision makers in the National Health Service can work.en
