Participants of the KCL/UCL Workshops on Social Values and Health Priority Setting have submitted an advice document to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). The document is an open letter in response to a request by Professor Sarah Garner, Associate Director of R&D at NICE, for the KCL/UCL group to consider issues that should be addressed when updating the 2008 edition of NICE’s Social Values Judgements document. The authors of the open letter make 10 recommendations to NICE. Read the recommendations and the full-length open letter here. More information on the KCL/UCL Social Values Group, which includes SSHM’s Dr Annette Rid, can be found here.
