Our REBALANCE project, a collaboration with the University of Oxford, analysed the impact of different weight management programmes on severely obese over-18 year olds. That helped the NHS assess and understand the long-term cost-effectiveness of these programs, then choose which one to go ahead with.
Public Health England asked us to help policy and decision makers understand how tax and pricing changes can change consumer choices, and through that improve their health. We looked at a range of different existing policies, then created a reference database of the ones that had definitely worked. It shows people where the evidence for the success of those policies is strongest and where there are gaps in the literature.
