  • This book is designed as a series of personal reflections on three pilot citizens' juries in health authorities around the country. The first chapter consists of a historical perspective on the contribution that citizens' juries may make to democratic practice. It concludes that a clear understanding of the objectives of citizens' juries is essential if they are to survive the accusations that they are merely an elaborate and expensive charade. This is followed by a discussion by the three project managers of their experiences of managing a citizens' jury project within their health authority. The juries' facilitators then set out the model that informed their work with the juries. The next chapter charts the views of 16 jurors at a review meeting six months after the juries had taken place. The concluding chapter seeks to place citizens' juries in the wider context of public involvement methods used in the health sector.
