Job Details

About the Role

By joining the Health Technology Assessment (HTA) division you will work on the successful delivery of projects to demonstrate the clinical and health economic value of some of the newest and most innovative therapies in development. In countries where HTA represents the final hurdle before a new therapy can achieve patient access, your work will have a direct impact on the successful reimbursement of these therapies. To date, the HTA team at Costello Medical have worked on over 200 submissions to national reimbursement agencies, including the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), the Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC) and the National Centre for Pharmacoeconomics (NCPE).

As an HTA Analyst you will work closely with your clients to develop the HTA strategy for their product that then informs the delivery of multiple project types including the medical writing of HTA submission dossiers, the organisation of HTA advisory boards and the conducting of clinical and economic systematic literature reviews (SLRs). The HTA team also work collaboratively with our Health Economics and Statistics (HES) team to develop health economic models including budget impact models and cost-effectiveness analyses. Many of our Analysts in HTA have gone on to study for a fully-funded postgraduate Masters degree in Health Economics from the University of York.

You will work in project teams alongside experienced colleagues from all divisions, who provide one-to-one training on the technical aspects of the role, as well as on project management and effective client communication. Delivering project work requires close collaboration with clients and following a successful induction period you will increasingly participate in teleconferences and face-to-face meetings with external stakeholders.

Our team work on several projects at one time and the results of HTA projects can feed into publications, value materials or health technology assessment (HTA) submissions. You will therefore be exposed to a wide variety of the services offered by Costello Medical and a broad range of therapeutic areas.
