Thomson Reuters 2016 Highly Cited Researcher
I am Dean of the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) at the University of Sheffield and Professor of Health Economics. I was the first Director of the Economic Evaluation Policy Research Unit (EEPRU) which is a joint Sheffield and York Unit funded by the Department of Health in England to undertake applied and methodological research to inform health policy in England. I am currently a NIHR Senior Investigator (Emeritus).
I have more than 25 years’ experience of conducting economic evaluations of health care interventions for policy makers and have published over 200 peered reviewed papers. My special interest is in the measurement and valuation of health for economic evaluation where I have published widely. I am perhaps best known for my work in developing a preference-based measure of health for the SF-36 (SF-6D), but with colleagues have further developed and extended these methods to a number of specific condition including measures in asthma, cancer, overactive bladder, diabetes, mental health, dementia and epilepsy. My methods research has also examined issues around reviewing utility measures, mapping between measures, valuation methods (including the use of DCE) and developing ways to incorporate equity concerns such as burden of disease into the weights applied to QALYs and the role of well-being in economic evaluation. I have been a member of the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) Technology Appraisal Committee (2000-2004) and has been an adviser on various aspects benefit measurement to NICE.
