The Cancer Modelling Working Party closed down in December 2018. It was developing projections of the likely future financial burden of cancer in England and Wales, covering both direct and indirect costs

The Cancer Modelling Working Party will split projections between the following relevant players:

  • public funding
  • private insurers
  • employers
  • individuals.

The model was intended to be used to develop impact analysis of scenarios such as:

  • public sector rationing
  • disease management programmes
  • variations in treatment pathways.

Main features for the scope of work are:

  • to consider rationing and prioritisation of cancer care and services
  • to consider the implications of mixing of public and private funding (in various forms, e.g. user charges, private medical insurance, out of pocket, savings plans)
  • for the work to have a clear interface with existing and evolving health and social care policies that affect people with cancer, as well as research published by academic groups and think tanks.

Outputs:

Chair: Jacky Cheung

Established: 2012 - 2015, re-established 2016

  • Finance in the Public Interest Series

    16 March 2021 - 23 March 2021

    Spaces available

    There is widening debate that many of our social, financial and regulatory institutions need to be rethought so that we can create more sustainable futures, particularly in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the policy/macro-economic response to the pandemic and how it affects consumers, as well as the impending climate crisis. This multi-day series of three keynote webinars, individually presented by leading economist John Kay, Sir Paul Collier, Professor of Economics and Public Policy at the Blavatnik School of Government, Ashok Gupta, Chair at Mercer Ltd, and Nico Aspinall, Chief Investment Officer at B&CE, will open up discussion on these essential topics. The series will culminate in a panel session with Chief Economist of the Bank of England, Andy Haldane.

    Mis-estimation risk is a key element of demographic risk, and past work has focused on mis-estimation risk on a run-off basis.  However, this does not meet the requirements of regulatory regimes like Solvency II, which demands that capital requirements are set through the prism of a finite horizon like one year.  This paper presents a value-at-risk approach to mis-estimation risk suitable for Solvency II work.
