Costing mandation project


It is currently mandatory for NHS acute trusts to return annual reference cost submissions. We've launched this project to consider whether to mandate the submission of patient-level costing information (PLICS data).

Project timescales

We have completed the first phase of the project, to collect evidence. We are now gathering evidence on the costs and benefits of PLICS data. Once completed, we will use this evidence to inform a consultation on the options under consideration.
