Staff Profile

Dr Andrew Salmon

Associate Research Fellow

Kath Maguire

I have completed two cost-effectiveness analyses for the local PHTCG (Health Technology Assessment Group) as detailed below. These are valuable projects that are relevant to the management of previously intractable conditions, that have great impact on quality of life. This is particularly true for Keratoconus, a lifelong disabling eye condition that begins at an early age and potentially has a huge impact on career pathways of young people. Taking part in these projects has given me a good introduction to the principles of performing a Health Technology Assessment, not just in terms of learning modelling techniques and implementation but also from the more general aspect of project planning.
