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.

Consultation launched

We have now launched our consultation on mandating patient-level costing for acute activity. This consultation is now closed and we will publish our response in early 2018.

If you have any queries on this project or costing in general please email


Mandating patient-level costing in acute providers

We ran a webinar to set out the process for mandating patient-level costs, along with a description of the proposals and how you can feed back to us.
