Setting priorities in health: a study of English primary care trusts – Nuffield Trust – September 2011

Research report by Suzanne Robinson, Helen Dickinson, Iestyn Williams, Tim Freeman, Benedict Rumbold and Katie Spence, Health Services Management Centre, University of Birmingham and the Nuffield Trust

Extract from the executive summary
“Aims
The research reported in this document was designed to map the priority-setting activities taking place across the National Health Service (NHS) in England, and to explore and assess the effectiveness of these practices within specific local contexts.
The questions that provided the basis for the research were as follows:
• What priority-setting tools, processes and activities are practised currently as part of the commissioning processes of English primary care trusts (PCTs)?
• What barriers are experienced by PCTs seeking to implement explicit priority setting, and how are these being addressed?
• What other strengths and weaknesses can be identified in current priority-
setting practice?
• What learning can be derived that will be instructive for future priority setting within the NHS and elsewhere?”
