Welsh Health Economists Group Annual Meeting (WHEG) 20-21 October 2016

Since April 2015, WHEG is an all Wales collaboration of health economists, bringing together health economists at the Centre for Health Economics and Medicines Evaluation, Bangor and the Swansea Centre for Health Economics.  The Welsh Health Economists Group (WHEG) was established in 2000.

The primary purpose of the Group is to provide research, teaching and policy support to academic health professionals working across Wales.

These meetings provide a valuable opportunity for members to discuss their current activities and plans with regard to research, teaching and policy support and, in particular, for junior researchers to discuss their own work in a friendly and supportive environment.

Recent guest speakers have included a Welsh Assembly Member, the Director of the Welsh NHS Confederation, the former Director of NHS Wales, the Chief Medical Officer of Wales – Dr Ruth Hussey, as well as health economists from outside Wales.  This year we are pleased to welcome Jonathan Price, Chief Economist for Welsh Government.
