"...Drawing upon jurisprudence from England, Canada, and South Africa, the book evaluates the capacity for courts to establish conditions for a process of public deliberation from which legitimacy for healthcare rationing may br derived." --Dr. Keith Dyrett, University of Bristol, Issues in Law and Medicine, Vol. 24, No.2
Dr Syrett argues that court involvement in disputes over the rationing of healthcare resources may be viewed more positively than has traditionally been the case. English, Canadian and South African cases are analysed to illustrate how courts may contribute to the attainment of legitimacy in this field.
