Annual costing conference (April 2017)

Forward together

06 April 2017 - 06 April 2017

Novotel London West



The HFMA annual costing conference aims to provide costing practitioners with the latest developments and guidance, and provide their colleagues with a greater awareness of the role of costing in the NHS.

The day includes interactive workshops, case study examples, policy updates and the chance to network with over 200 costing colleagues. There is also an increased focus on helping costing practitioners adapt to the rapidly changing landscape of NHS costing and the growing demands on their role.

This is a must attend conference for any costing practitioners in need of a support network and a wish to gain confidence in their ability to meet costing requirements as this national programme comes into the NHS spotlight and gains momentum. 

This event also provides a crucial opportunity to raise the profile of costing within your organisations and health economies. The conference is therefore aimed at both costing professionals and those not in a costing role but with an interest in the costing agenda.
