O'Neill, P., Cole, A., Duran, A. and Devlin, N.

Research Paper
December 2016

This Research Paper explores decisions by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) that new technologies are to be recommended in line with clinical practice (RiLCP). The authors qualitatively assess documentation associated with RiLCP decisions to create a framework to describe common themes, and assess the level of patient access associated with each RiLCP decision.

Research Paper
November 2016

The quality of decision-making in key public sector bodies dealing with resource allocation is a major determinant of their efficiency. One of the most difficult and contentious areas of decision-making is the way that uncertainty is dealt with.

Research Paper
October 2016

EQ-5D data are often summarised by an EQ-5D index, whose distribution for its original version, the EQ-5D-3L, often shows two distinct groups in patient populations, arising from both the distribution of ill health and how the index is constructed. To date, there is little evidence about the distribution of the EQ-5D-5L index. This project aims to:

Research Paper
December 2015

This paper presents a model to capture the behaviour of health sector decision makers when making resource allocation decisions on the level and mix of healthcare production, while taking into consideration the maximum expenditure (budget) allowed by the government or the health system regulator.

The paper seeks to address two perennial policy and practical discussions in the UK National Health Service (NHS) (and elsewhere): how to cope with financial austerity; and the opportunity costs of reimbursing new health technologies.
