Welcome - Summer 2019
A word from the Director - Hello from sunny Sheffield
It’s grim up North, or so they say; but here on the edge of the glorious Peak District National Park, you wouldn’t have thought it. And in this issue you’ll read about our own Dr Harry Hill who’s been looking in more detail at our region and exploring the links between health and economic productivity.
We’re also excited to be able to share news of how HEDS contributors have made ScHARR the first research unit outside the USA to provide modelling input for drug pricing watchdog ICER; and - hot off the press - a prestigious award for Dr Monica Hernandez (see ‘News in Brief’).
Elsewhere you’ll hear about projects HEDS staff have been working on for Duchenne UK; Public Health England; and methods work we’ve undertaken for ISPOR and NICE.
As always, check out the back page for our usual round-up of forthcoming training events and conferences we’ll be attending. We hope to see you at one of them soon.
Phil Shackley, Director of HEDS
