The Department has initiated a scoping study of the burden of disease that will inform any future work on United Kingdom health priorities. The Cooksey Review has recommended that when the UK's health priorities have been determined, the Office for Strategic Coordination of Health Research should use this information to establish health research priorities for the UK.
