This chapter reviews some of the concerns raised against the use of economic evaluation in the decision-making process, from a wide range of disciplinary and stakeholder perspectives. It offers some reflections on the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) as a user of health economic evaluation to assess whether health care interventions ought to be made available in the National Health Service (NHS) in England and Wales.
