    Dear Professor Cullum
    Thank you for your comments regarding the of Cullum et al (2016) and Madden & Morley (2016). These two publications were identified through our search strategy, however, they did not meet our inclusion criteria. The a priory criteria set for inclusion and exclusion of primary studies are listed below:
    Inclusion criteria: All steps from James Lind Alliance, list of Top 10 priorities, adults (aged > 18 years or older)
    Exclusion criteria: Unpublished literature, articles not written in English, priority setting partnership without James Lind Alliance, James Lind Alliance without priority setting partnership, protocols, errata, editorial, thesis, comments, review, guidelines, randomized controlled trials.

    I read this paper with interest - I think there is a lot to be gained from studying the James Lind Alliance approach and the diversity of methods that have been applied by James Lind partnerships. I do think however that your search strategy (and approach to searching) was unnecessarily narrow and wonder why you didn't start with the James Lind PSP website (http://www.jla.nihr.ac.uk/priority-setting-partnerships/) which lists all the JLA PSPs undertaken and would have been the best place to start. Had you done this (and/or used Google) you would have identified more JLA PSPs, including ours on pressure ulcers (reported here http://www.jla.nihr.ac.uk/priority-setting-partnerships/pressure-ulcers/ and also [1, 2]. I bring this to your attention merely because we considered extensively some of the issues your raise regarding facilitating broad participation and we have also discussed other methodological aspects.

    I received funding from the National Institute of Health Research for a programme of research that included a James Lind Alliance Priority Setting Partnership on Pressure Ulcers. The views expressed here are mine alone.
