dc.description.abstractRocketing healthcare demands are not currently paralleled by available economic resources and the fight against inappropriateness has had only a modest impact. Distribution equilibrium is afforded by various concealed and unconcealed filters to access, including waiting lists, and rationing. Age related rationing (better known as agism), is one of the most widespread forms and is cause for ethical and professional concern.1 At a time when everyone is verbally in favour of a patient oriented partnership, we decided to consult the public about health resource allocation, addressing the issue from an elderly perspective.2 Indeed, evidence on elderly attitudes towards this question is virtually non-existent.
