Event Details

In today’s NHS, clinical commissioning groups have to make some difficult choices about which health services to fund from a limited budget. They need to consider not just clinical effectiveness and cost effectiveness, but also the ethical repercusssions of their choices – do their funding decisions imply that one group of patients is more important than another, for example, and if they do, how do they justify that?

Patients, service users, voluntary organisations and members of the public need to have confidence that commissioners are spending public money in a responsible and considered manner, after taking account of all relevant information.

We are researchers at King’s College London and we are developing a checklist that can help commissioners in south London think carefully about the criteria and procedures they use in order to take well-made and fair decisions.

Patients and service user groups can also use the checklist to ensure that the decision-making process has been even-handed and above board.

If you are a commissioner or a patient, service user, or member of the public interested in local NHS services, come to our interactive workshop, try our checklist in a real life decision-making scenario and tell us if you think it is useful.

• We are part of the CLAHRC South London, a research organisation funded by the National Institute for Health Research, the research arm of the NHS. Find out more about our work at

NIHR CLAHRC South London

The Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) South London is investigating the best way to make tried and tested treatments and services routinely available. University-based researchers, health professionals, patients and service users are working together to make this happen.

The collaborating organisations are Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, Health Innovation Network (the NHS England-funded academic health science network in south London), King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, King’s College London, King’s Health Partners, St George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, St George’s, University of London and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.

The work of the CLAHRC South London is funded for five years (from 1 January 2014) by the National Institute for Health Research, collaborating organisations and local charities. It is hosted by King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

The CLAHRC is also working closely with GPs, local authorities (responsible for public health) and commissioners of health services in south London.
