We are excited to announce that the Health Economics Research Centre (HERC), University of Oxford, will be hosting NIHR Oxford BRC & Oxford Health BRC Symposium - Making the economic case to NICE for new health technologies.

Date and time: Thursday 12 October 2023, 10:00 – 12:00 hours (UK BST) followed by buffet lunch from 12:00-13:00.

Location: Richard Doll Lecture Theatre, Richard Doll Building HERC, Nuffield Department of Population Health, Old Road Campus, Headington, OX3 7LF


Before they can be adopted into the NHS, new interventions and technologies are formally evaluated by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). Cost-effectiveness is typically a key factor in NICE evaluations. Aimed primarily at early- and mid-career stage biomedical researchers, this symposium will provide an overview of the NICE health technology assessment process, together with economic case studies from the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), and the NIHR Oxford Health BRC.

The symposium will feature talks by leading health economists, biomedical researchers and a recent NICE Technology Appraisal Chair. It will conclude with a buffet lunch and networking opportunities.
