This chapter examines the setting up of the Citizens Council of the British National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). It describes the NICE at the point where the Citizens Council idea began to develop, linking understandings of the organisation with the challenge of putting words on paper about the precise shape of the Council, and discusses the recruitment of citizens' councillors. The chapter also offers a preliminary assessment of some of the features of the design choices that were made about the Council and some hints about how consequential these choices were to become in relation to deliberative participation in healthcare decision making.

Keywords:   Citizens Council, NICE, citizens' councillors, Great Britain, deliberative participation, healthcare, decision making
