He has also worked in industry, consulting, the Treasury, and for the Commission for Health Improvement (2001 to 2003), where he was Director of the Office for Information on Healthcare Performance.
Professor Bevan's current research includes studies of outcomes of the natural experiment of different policies in UK countries for the NHS and schools following devolution; and the SyMPOSE (Systems Modelling for Performance Optimisation and Service Equity) project funded by the Health Foundation, which is a programme of collaborative research that aims to reduce expenditure on health care to create funding for new developments. He is a member of the Department of Health’s two advisory committees on resource allocation. With David Goodman (Center for Health Policy Research at the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice) he has developed the Wennberg International Collaborative, which is a community of scholars that aims to understand how to reduce unwarranted variations in medical practice.
