Sign up for our national sector forums
We are holding four national sector forums in partnership with HFMA. These events will look at the changing role of costing and share learning between organisations.
The forums are primarily aimed at directors of finance and transformation. However, clinical and operational leads who use patient-level costing information in their work are also welcome.

About the programme
To support the sustainable delivery of high quality patient care as outlined in the Five Year Forward View, providers need to fully understand their current models of care and what the impact would be of moving to a new way of delivering services.
Cost is an important factor in evaluating how effectively and efficiently you're delivering care to patients. Having accurate, consistent, patient-level cost information will help you to:
- make the best possible use of resources
- evaluate clinical practice
- compare different ways of working
