Abstract Sir David Cooksey was asked by the UK Chancellor of the Exchequer to review publicly funded healthcare research across the UK (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland). This followed the Chancellor’s decision to create a single ring-fenced fund from several government sources for such research. It is important to note that, while this newly ring-fenced fund was heralded for it sheer size – approximately £3 billion; the largest ever fund for healthcare research in the UK – it neither represented new money nor additional funding. The Cooksey report (Cooksey, 2006) was not about research priorities either as these had already been decided in such strategies as Best research for best health (Department of Health, 2006). Priorities had also been previously identified within the strategies of the funding streams which have been incorporated into the single fund, such as the Medical Research Council and the Health Technology Assessment and the Service Delivery and Organisation programmes.
