Demonstration workshop on incorporating health inequality concerns into cost-effectiveness analysis of NHS programmes

Tuesday 26th February 2013

Centre for Health Economics, University of York

This workshop presents the results of applying a formal approach to incorporating health inequality concerns into cost-effectiveness analysis to the evaluation of alternative ways of designing the NHS Bowel screening programme. The aim of the workshop is to obtain feedback on whether the practical analytical methods will be useful to NHS bodies who have a duty to consider inequality in health outcomes and value for money in allocating scarce resources between competing healthcare programmes.

Issues for discussion included:

  • the acceptability and clarity of the framework
  • how far these methods have potential to inform decision making
  • the challenges that would be involved in practical application of the methods
