Professor Andrew Clegg is to leave SHTAC

Published: 30 July 2014

Andrew Clegg is leaving SHTAC after serving as director for 12 years.

Andrew has worked at the University of Southampton since 1999 and became Director of SHTAC in 2002. During this time he led the development of SHTAC to become an internationally respected research centre specialising in health technology assessment, securing £20 million in research funding. Andrew co-authored over 40 systematic reviews and economic evaluations in priority areas including cardiovascular disease, cancer, nutrition, mental health and ophthalmology, publishing over 100 peer review journal papers and reports. His work with the SHTAC group has directly informed the development of policy and guidance by the Department of Health to the NHS and by other organisations (including the World Health Organisation). In 2006 Andrew was awarded a personal Chair from the University of Southampton in recognition of his work in health technology assessment, becoming Professor of Health Services Research. Andrew will retain a link with SHTAC as a Visiting Professor, and everyone at SHTAC would like to wish him well in his future research.

Dr Andrew Cook, Consultant Advisor at the NIHR Evaluation, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre (NETSCC) at the University of Southampton, has been appointed as interim director. Recruitment for a permanent director for SHTAC is likely to begin later in the year. Further details will be available on our Job opportunities page.
