Citizens'juries are an attempt to meaningfully involve members of the public in decisions which affect them in their own communities.
The Institute for Public Policy Research and Cambridge and Huntingdon Health Authority have recently piloted the first jury in the United Kingdom.
Sixteen jurors sat for four days, hearing evidence from a number of expert witnesses.
The jurors were asked to consider how priorities for health care should be set, according to what criteria, and to what extent the public should be involved in this process.
This pilot was also an attempt to assess the process itself, and our initial evaluation indicates that, given enough time and information, the public is willing and able to contribute to the debate about priority setting in health care.
