Business School, University of Exeter

Start date: September 2015

Research topic: Hybrid methodology in healthcare operations research

The aim of my masters’ dissertation is to project future demand from all sources for diagnostic endoscopy services in one Clinical Commissioning Group in the south of England.  This will use shifting population demographics and the effect of an older population on demand for this service.  Theories of population aging are used to explain why rising life expectancy overstates the effect of population ageing.
