Health Economics

Health care systems worldwide confront the challenge of meeting seemingly unlimited patient needs and demands with constrained and limited resources. Health economics is playing an increasing role, providing analysis to inform health care decision making and policy formation. Birmingham has a strong tradition in this field, with research and teaching spanning some 30 years. We seek to inform NHS policy and resource allocation and to guide research methodology through undertaking, promoting and facilitating high quality health economics research. We have an extensive teaching and learning programme aimed at building health economics research capacity and providing skills for people working in the health sector.
