Nick Hex will be joining us on 9 July to describe what health economics is and how it works at a national level, before going on to explore how it can be used by decision makers at a local level to understand the costs and benefits of the decisions they make to invest in new technologies.

Nick leads YHEC’s programme of work in the NHS and the public sector, providing economic evaluation and quantitative and qualitative analysis.  He works with a range of local and national organisations including the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), NHS Trusts, Clinical Commissioning Groups, Commissioning Support Units and Local Authorities.  Nick’s reviews examine efficiency and productivity and use techniques such as return on investment and cost benefit analysis to provide decision-making information.  He leads YHEC’s work on the National Collaborating Centre for Indicator Development which provides cost-effectiveness advice to the NICE Indicator Advisory Committee.  He has previously worked at Audit Scotland and the Audit Commission.
