Health Economic Evaluation of the Aspire Project


Blackburn with Darwen Health Living commissioned Infonomics and Shepard and Moyes to provide a health economics evaluation of the Aspire project.

Aspire is a 6-month weight-loss pilot project. The pilot sought to identify what works, and what it's worth, so that BWDHL could prepare a proposal for a full-scale programme that is being offered to Clinical Commissioning Groups this year (2013).

The evaluation provided:

  • a framework for collecting data on weight loss outcomes,
  • a review of NICE Clinical Guidance and other research on the economic impact of obesity,
  • calculation of Incremental Cost Effectiveness Ratios to demonstrate the value for money achieved under the pilot.
