Blanket bans of specific treatments have been controversially introduced by some NHS trusts as a means of rationing health care and prioritizing funding for services. This article examines the perceived value conflicts that emerge in relation to blanket bans on specific treatments. Following an initial overview of rationing in contemporary society the needs and wants of given individuals are compared with those of a wider society. Ethical values and philosophical considerations are explored as an analysis of the continuing debate is attempted.
