It's All About the Money? Issues for the Regulation of Genetic Testing

Abstract

Whether talking about football or schools, in Britain or abroad, it has become commonplace to say, ‘It’s all about the money’. One area that has recently been attracting comment of this nature is healthcare, due to an increase in the influence of economic principles and analysis over policy decisions. This trend spans many countries, and with healthcare being such a crucial sector of society, this widespread development demands critical analysis. Research must address whether evidence exists to support such a trend. If it does, then is it having a positive or negative impact on healthcare governance? If negative, what directions can be taken in the coming years to improve on the current situation?
