Creator:

Warburton, D., Wilson, R. and Rainbow, E

Subject Keywords: CENTRAL GOVERNMENT, EVALUATION, GENERAL PUBLIC, HEALTH, POLICY FORMULATION
Type: Guideline
Region: United Kingdom
Description:

Public engagement is now a central element in public policy-making. Activities range from major events such as the Your Health, Your Care, Your Say initiative for public involvement in the health and social care White Paper, which gained over 40,000 responses, to a citizens’ jury on nanotechnology which involved just 12. The success of the initiative will depend on these three elements: — the purpose (what is it for? what do you want to achieve?) — the process (how should it be done - scale, resources, timescales, who to involve, methods?) — the context within which it is taking place (what else is going on? is there any history that needs to be taken into account?) All leading to a successful outcome, if the whole initiative is planned well.
