Costing conference 2018

Shaping the future

18 April 2018 - 18 April 2018

Novotel London West

The Institute’s annual Costing Conference aims to provide the NHS with the latest developments and guidance in NHS costing, and increase awareness of the essential role of costing in the NHS. The day will include interactive workshops, case study examples, policy updates and the chance to network with over 200 of your colleagues. 

This is a must attend conference for those who are in need of a support network, and wish to gain confidence in their ability to meet costing requirements as this national agenda builds momentum and cements its place in the NHS spotlight. 

This event also provides a crucial opportunity to raise the profile of costing within your organisation 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.
