Nawaraj Bhattarai

Health Foundation Doctoral Fellow


I am working towards a PhD. The aim of my research is to explore what preferences and trade-offs would society be willing to make if Emergency Medical Services were reorganised, what are the implications in terms of quality and cost of care for current versus potential alternate service configurations, and which potential service configurations would make best use of available resources.
