Professor Rhiannon Tudor Edwards FLSW has worked in the field of health economics for twenty five years and published extensively with colleagues from Bangor University and internationally on public health economics. She has in the past worked with Welsh Government on policies to reduce NHS waiting lists, the funding formula for NHS resources to Health Boards, and worked closely with Public Health Wales to produce a series of reports on the economic case for investing in prevention across the life course. In this bilingual lecture she will set out her ideas, from the perspective of a health economist, on the challenges and opportunities facing the NHS in Wales over the next seventy years.

Professor Edwards is a distinguished Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales.
