Meeting to discuss findings of research report

Activity: OtherTypes of External academic engagement - Research and Teaching at External Organisation


Meeting to discuss the findings of a research report on approaches to projecting health care expenditures. Meeting held with members of DHSC Strategy Unit (SU). The Strategy Unit has developed a model to support DHSC in making decisions about the design of new hospital infrastructure as part of the government's commitment to building new hospitals by 2030. This aims to ensure that this new hospital infrastructure will meet the future needs of the population and that the required investment represents value for money.

We discussed methods to project future healthcare expenditures and how these might inform SU's approach.

The workshop was concerned with how demographic changes translate into need or demand for healthcare and was focused on an elicitation exercise to estimate the proportion of disability free years of life a person at age 65 in 2035 is expected to have, together with associated uncertainty around this estimate.

The workshop consisted of the conveners (DHSC, SU), individuals running the elicitation exercise, and seven `experts'.
