The Maynard Doctrine - Two Christmas debating issues

Professor Alan Maynard suggests that ‘tis the season for discussion

Do specialist hospitals need super-subsidy?

Here are two issues for debate as we enter the Christmas season.

What is the best way of altering clinicians’ behaviour? Should we pay 'em or flay 'em?

Both need evidence to resolve them - but equally, it would be nice to exchange opinion as to Health Policy Insight readers' views regarding these two questions.

Santa hats off and thinking caps on!
