Using costing information to support better outcomes


Improving the quality of costing information in the NHS will support providers to deliver better, more efficient outcomes. Patient-level costing (often referred to as PLICS) will result in more detailed and accurate data that can be used in a variety of ways.

We're working with providers to implement patient-level costing across the NHS. Details about cost collections, including guidance, standards and resources, are available in Transforming patient level costing in the NHS.

This section brings together resources and outputs from cost collections – both PLICS and reference costs – to support you to use cost data. It gives access to cost data and detailed information about costing. It also provides examples of how organisations have used information to improve services and bring about improved outcomes for patients.
