Mandation of patient-level costs for acute activity
On 25 January 2018, NHS Improvement’s Board approved the proposal that from 2018/19 onwards, it will be mandatory for designated NHS trusts and NHS foundation trusts to record and report costs at a patient level for acute activity, in line with the Healthcare costing standards for England.
This followed a consultation in late 2017.
This document summarises the feedback we received from the consultation and our response to it.
