Most economic evaluations of health care programmes at the moment are cost effectiveness and cost-utility analyses. The problem with these methods is that their theoretical foundations are unclear.

We refer to what is being appraised as ‘alternatives’, to emphasise that we are interested in the use of economic appraisal in health care to aid decision making about different ways of .

A considerable amount of resource allocation decisions take place daily at the point of the clinical encounter; especially in primary care, where 80 percent of health problems are managed.
