Professor Rachel Elliott
Research profile and key clinical specialties
I am a pharmacist and a health economist. I use trials, large databases and routine data and economic modelling in complex healthcare problems with high patient and economic burden, including patient safety and medicines-taking.
My work has informed national health policy in the UK and other countries. I am currently looking at the change in use of digital and remote technology since COVID.
I am a member of a NICE technology appraisal committee. I am Senior Methods Lead, NIHR Research Design Service NW.
