Abstract: User involvement means different things to different people • users can be involved both in the planning of health services and in the conduct of health services research • not all user groups have the same opportunities for involvement • little is yet known as to the impact that user involvement has, both on services and on the individual • until clearer evidence is available, it remains uncertain whether users are being involved because it fits the rhetoric or because it will make a difference
