The Centre for Health Economics & Medicines Evaluation (CHEME) was founded in 2001, and is now one of the leading health economics centres in the UK.

Researchers at CHEME produce world leading research across a range of health economic and medicines evaluation activities.

Core strengths of CHEME are our multidisciplinary approach to health research and close alliance with the NHS.
