PLICS cost collection guidance file specifications

(0)

Templates for software suppliers of healthcare costing systems and costing practitioners who are participating in 2017/18 PLICS cost collections.

These documents set out the file specifications for the collection submission files to NHS Digital and a data validation tool. The data validation tool assesses the quality of the files before submission to NHS Digital to minimise the chance of submission failure and the need for resubmissions. 

Software suppliers and NHS providers have the choice to create CSV or XML files. Whether CSV or XML files are produced, providers should validate their files using the data validation tool before submission. The data validation tool will convert CSV files into XML. XML is the file format required by NHS Digital for PLICS submissions. 

Submission files for community collections will be published later this year.
