This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about deliberative participation in healthcare decisions in Great Britain. This book traces the rise of citizen participation in Great Britain and describes the Citizens Council of the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) as a case study in citizen participation. It presents several case studies and spells out what can be learned about creating an expertise space for citizens, and confronting in a more subtle way than hitherto the questions of citizen capacity and power that arise.

Keywords:   deliberative decisions, healthcare decisions, Great Britain, NICE, case studies, citizen participation
