This paper reports on research that compared two multiple criteria decision analysis
(MCDA) models: Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Evidential Reasoning (ER).
It discusses the development of a hybrid version, specifically designed to select and
justify the location for a future urban healthcare infrastructure within a UK based
National Health Service (NHS) Trust. We recommend the use of a hybrid model using
aspects of AHP at the criteria level and aspects of ER at the sub-criteria level. We
suggest using ER with pair-wise comparison elements as the most effective solution.
