    Abstract

    Over the last two decades, there has been an increased focus among the health policy and research communities upon improving efficiency, in terms of activity levels and health outcomes, in the health care systems of the EU member states. In this article, some of these developments are described and to some extent assessed, and an attempt is made to highlight how they may serve to undermine more fundamental aspects of these systems: namely, that access to health care be universal and affordable at the point of use.
