What Works: Who Decides?
Professor Siobhan McClelland
Political: Elections/New Governments/New Ministers/New Organisations
Economic: Stringency/austerity/competing resources/value for money
Strategic: “Preventative, primary and community led”
The Opportunity: To demonstrate that services meet the context: deliver on strategic objectives, are cost effective and tick the boxes of decision makers
The Danger: Competing for resources becomes fiercer; hard to change existing patterns of service delivery and resource allocation; easy to get rid of “soft” services; difficulties in securing ongoing revenue funding
Civil Servants and Managers
The Bad News:
Rational policy making and resource allocation is a holy grail
Lots of decisions about policy and resources are not based on evidence
The Good News:
It doesn’t have to be like this and it isn’t always like this
We shouldn’t give up on developing a robust evidence base to inform decision making
