Dr Linda Fenocchi is a Lecturer of Health Economics for the Masters Public Health programme and an active health economist researcher. Linda works at the junction of health economics and social determinants of health, with particular interest in measurement and valuation of health outcomes and social benefits, and pedagogical research for teaching health economics. She brings over 16 years of experience working in central government and with national organisations as a senior policy specialist, including as a private secretary to successive Health Ministers. This experience informs Linda’s approach to research and teaching, where she seeks to highlight the practical application and impact of research on real world decision making.
A mixed methodologist, Linda has been involved in study design, primary data collection and analysis, designing and performing economic evaluations alongside clinical trials, analysing linked health data and, evidence synthesis. Currently a co-applicant on the DIMES study, a project to evaluate the impact of Distress Brief Intervention (DBI) on suicidal ideation, suicidal behaviour and self-harm [NIHR 2022-2025], Linda's recent projects have related to: social determinants of health in low-income individuals (FinWell-COVID [UKRI 2021]); women’s health (PROPEL, POPPY longitudinal follow-up); incontinence in care homes residents (ELECTRIC); anxiety and depression after stroke (HEADS:UP); and, mental health (Distress Brief Intervention, HEADS:UP, DIMES).
In her Doctoral work, submitted in 2020, Linda explored “Measuring health outcomes for economic evaluation of conservative treatment for foot pain” through empirical work with NHS patients. She is a member of the International Foot and Ankle OA Consortium (IFOAC).
Linda is founding Chair of the Scottish Health Economics Early Career Network, member of the UK Health Economic Study Group (HESG) Early Career Researcher subcommittee, and an Auroran (2022 programme).
