The NHS in Wales: A Health Economist's Perspective on the Next 70 Years

21 Feb

LR4. Lecture Room 4, Bangor University

Professor Rhiannon Tudor Edwards FLSW

Rhiannon has worked in the field of health economics for twenty five years and published extensively with colleagues from Bangor University and internationally on public health economics. She has in the past worked with Welsh Government on policies to reduce NHS waiting lists, the funding formula for NHS resources to Health Boards, and worked closely with Public Health Wales to produce a series of reports on the economic case for investing in prevention across the life course. In this bilingual lecture she will set out her ideas, from the perspective of a health economist, on the challenges and opportunities facing the NHS in Wales over the next seventy years.

This event forms part of the Learned Society of Wales’s Our Future Health series of prestigious lectures to mark the 70th anniversary of the NHS. We will be exploring a number of important contemporary topics related to health provision in Wales and the world, and will be encouraging audience discussion and debate.
