Democracy, deliberation and public service reform. The case of NICE – The 2020 Public Services Trust at the RSA – 2010

Annabelle Lever, ESRC Economic & Social Research Council
ISBN 978-1-907815-11-9

Extract
“In this enjoyable and challenging paper, Dr Annabelle Lever reminds us that engaging the public in a meaningful way is neither straightforward nor without its own underlying issues. Her analysis of NICE’s experience of lay deliberation over the cost-effectiveness of NHS treatments demonstrates the validity and strength of ‘deliberative solutions to seemingly technical problems’. But it also uncovers challenges. Deliberation and consultation are expensive; they are vulnerable to information asymmetries; and an objective presentation of the evidence being considered is difficult to achieve.”
