These data should be used together with cost data to decide on provision of care. Given the strength of preference of the minority group, and if the cost implications are not too great, a flexible service that takes account of women's wishes should be provided, even if this goes against the trend for care of those at low risk. By analyzing choice of care by income groups and social class groupings, it is possible to examine whether willingness-to-pay results are associated with indicators of ability to pay. In this case, they were not. Willingness to pay has an advantage in allowing respondents to account for more than just health gain when valuing different types of care.
