Meet The Warwick Evidence Team


Warwick Evidence is an academic research group within the Population, Evidence and Technologies grouping in the Division of Health Sciences. We undertake reviews and evidence synthesis on the clinical and cost effectiveness of health care interventions for the NIHR Evidence Synthesis Programme on behalf of a range of policy makers, including the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) since 2011. We are one of nine Technology Assessment Report Teams across the country who undertake Technology Assessment Reports (TARs). The TAR teams provide NICE with essential information to make decisions on whether to recommend technologies (drugs, other treatments, devices and diagnostics) for use within the NHS.

Led by staff at Warwick Medical School, Warwick Evidence brings together experts in clinical and cost effectiveness reviewing, epidemiology, public health, screening and diagnostics, health economics, statistics and modelling. The multidisciplinary team works collaboratively across several departments at the University of Warwick and is supported by clinical and methodological advisors at local, national and international level.

The Advisory Group (AG) is a locally instigated arrangement to provide the Warwick Evidence with independent oversight, support and advice. It has been agreed as forming part of the oversight and governance arrangements for Warwick Evidence in the University of Warwick’s contract with the Department of Health and Social Care. The Advisory Group is governed by its agreed terms of reference.
