Since 1991 the NHS has attempted to identify and prioritise its needs for research and development in a systematic manner.
This has not been done before and there is little evidence on which to draw.
Multidisciplinary expert groups have identified priorities in different topics using explicit criteria and after widespread consultation within the NHS and research community to identify pressing problems and opportunities for research.
This paper focuses on a review completed in 1993 to identify research and development priorities for the NHS in relation to the interface between primary and secondary care.
The review covered several recent developments which require evaluation.
The authors describe the process used to identify research and development priorities in this complex subject and examine the strengths and weaknesses of the approach.
This case study should help to stimulate a wider debate on methods of identifying priorities, particularly those using participatory approaches, in research and non-research contexts.
