In this paper it will be argued that choices in health care are necessary, desirable and just.
An important choice that each society has to make, is : what basic services should be available to everybody independently of an individual's purchasing power ?
The Dutch Government Committee on Choices in Health Care advised the use of four criteria : basic care must be necessary, effective, efficient and cannot be left to the individual's responsibility.
Because important decisions with respect to the second criterion-the effectiveness of care-are made by physicians in the consulting room or at the operating table, physicians do have a primary responsibility in making the right choices.
