|Abstract:||The NHS in the UK continues to undergo rapid reforms incorporating New Public Financial Management techniques with limited attention only given to the theoretical underpinning and practical limitations of participatory health choice and evaluation. The study adopts a reflexive approach to realizing the aim of implementing empoweringsocialaudit-a paradigm founded in a polyvocal citizenship perspective (PCP).
