Health Economics Research at Nottingham (HER@N)

Welcome to HER@N

Health Economics Research at Nottingham (HER@N) brings together researchers with a shared interest in health economics across the University of Nottingham.

The network seeks to facilitate collaboration between different research groups and wider dissemination of health economics research findings.



Research issues

Economists’ skillsets can be applied to a variety of questions regarding policies, interventions and fundamental concepts that determine the health of the public.

Health economists working at the University of Nottingham are involved in
research that employs a wide range of methodologies applicable to an extensive selection of clinical fields. A lot of our work involves trial-based and model-based economic evaluation to estimate the cost-effectiveness of health interventions. We also carry out work in public health economics and conduct econometric analyses of large data sets.

Current projects

  • AQUA-Trial: Assessing QbTest Utility in ADHD
  • CLAHRC Mood Disorder: Randomised controlled trial of the clinical and cost effectiveness of a specialist mood disorders team for refractory unipolar depressive disorder
  • ISDR: Introducing personalised risk based intervals in screening for diabetic retinopathy: development, implementation and assessment of safety, cost- effectiveness and patient experience.
