Abstract

Current NHS policies emphasise the involvement of patients and place them centre stage in the evaluation of health care. The unique experiences and views that patients can bring to health service research can be understood as complementary to staff skills. Qualitative research methods in particular provide a distinctive approach to recording and interpreting patients' perceptions and opinions; these insights can be used when developing and evaluating new treatments and services.
