Overview

 

Rachel joined the team here at The University of Manchester in January 2011, shortly after completing her MSc Economics and Health Economics at The University of Sheffield.

Rachel is interested in the evaluation of changes to the financing and organisation of health care. In particular, her work focuses on adapting the methods commonly used in the cost-effectiveness analysis of healthcare technologies, and applying these to large-scale programme evaluations. 

Rachel has particular experience of performing high-profile evaluations of the NHS' move towards seven day hospital services, and multiple pay-for-performance initiatives.

Rachel is the elected Chair of the European Health Economics Association (EuHEA) Early Career Committee, which aims to encourage and foster collaborative relationships between early career researchers across Europe.

Rachel's current research projects include:

  • Evaluating the national NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme
  • Effectiveness and value for money of Prescribed Specialised Services Commissioning for Quality and Innovation (PSS CQUIN)
  • De-implementation in health and care services: what works, for whom, and in which contexts?
