Helicopters, hearts and hips : Using willingness to pay to set priorities for public sector health care programmes.
The paper reports from a study that asked 150 interviewees their willingness to pay (WTP) in increased earmarked taxation for three different health care programmes : a helicopter ambulance service, more heart operations and more hip replacements.
Reasons behind the stated WTP were asked for.
Ordinary least squares regression analyses were used to analyse factors associated with WTP for each of the three programmes, and factors associated with the relative WTP for one programme compared with the total of the three.
Comparisons were made of WTP for these programmes and the health outcome in terms of quality adjusted life years.
