Costing for clinicians

(0)

We’ve been working with clinicians and costing teams across the country to understand how clinical and costing teams can work together more effectively.

Clinicians have a very important role to play in patient-level costing. The decisions they take around patient care impacts on costs and their involvement in the costing process is central to developing accurate data.  Clinicians are also able to use patient-level costing information to help review, and improve, services for patients. 

This collection of resources is designed for clinicians wanting to find out more about costing, and for costing teams wanting to work more closely with clinicians. 

If you have case studies or further resources for clinicians using costing information, please email costing@improvement.nhs.uk
