The article examines how resources are allocated for London, England's mental health services. According to the author, all the evidence suggests that the distribution process seeks to be as fair as possible and that it is difficult to establish whether perceived inadequacy in resources is due to errors in formula, deficiencies in the total resources or errors in choices made by the health authority.
