Social Values and Health Priority Setting at UCL


Social values and health priority setting in the media

26 November 2012

We have had much interest in the project from the media over recent months, with several articles being published in the UK media and one in a Portuguese newspaper.

Articles on the challenges of social values in clinical commissioning decisions were published in Pulse, an online magazine for GPs in the UK, and in the Health Services Journal, a weekly journal for healthcare professionals.

The British Medical Journal published an article about the project entitled 'Crunch time for commissioning: Researchers compile international commissioning review' and interviews Peter Littlejohns about the aims of our work. You can listen to a recording of the interview here.

Albert Weale was interviewed by a journalist from the Portuguese newspaper Expresso about the challenges of making fair decisions about healthcare priority setting in times of economic hardship. The article can be downloaded here (in Portuguese).
