The Surrey Health Economics Centre (SHEC) in the School of Economics undertakes collaborative interdisciplinary research in health economics and service delivery. Much of its research focuses on practical and policy-related topics, using an extensive range of analytically and empirically rigorous methodologies. The Centre has attracted multiple research grants for evaluative studies. Papers have been published in core economics journals, for example Scottish Journal of Political Economy, and health journals such as British Medical Journal, Archives of Neurology, European Journal of Cancer Prevention, Health Technology Assessment, Journal of Medical Screening and Public Health.
Members of the Group provide economics advice and practical input to a wide range of multidisciplinary health-related projects in the University of Surrey and the local NHS. The Centre is well positioned to capitalise on expertise within the School of Economics in statistics and econometrics. Many collaborations extend nationwide and internationally.
The SHEC actively encourages and supports postgraduate research students in health economics or health services as part of the School of Economics’ MPhil/PhD programme, and in conjunction with the pursuit of a MD qualification.
