Show Summary Details


This chapter explores the thinking that accompanied change within the host organisation of the Citizens Council of the British National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). It traces the discursive work of reframing in the face of real and imagined forms of stakeholder interrogation and challenge, and the ways in which different stakeholders intervened to assess the value of the Council. The chapter discusses the different directions from which queries could emerge and the multiple ways in which deliberation itself could be construed as a contested and contestable practice.
