Abstract: This paper describes a two-stage process for prioritising health research topics. It has been used by the UK NIHR’s Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care for the South-West Peninsula (PenCLAHRC). Health research questions were collected from local clinicians, academics and service users. The first stage of the prioritisation included a review of the proposed questions by an Executive Group. They identified which research questions met with explicit criteria to narrow down the options. The second stage of prioritisation involved a large stakeholder group that included service users. They used a voting system to identify a final 25 projects. Researchers are now bidding for funding to take forward this work.
