R&D costing group

The research and development costing group was re-established in February 2018. The group intend to act as a technical expert reference group on costing R&D in the NHS. The group is working to progress the capture and allocation of R&D costing within PLICS, improve the accuracy of R&D budgeting and bidding and share best practice.

The group act as a thought leadership platform to discuss and develop what R&D costs can be used for once they have been captured accurately at a patient-level and extracted from the costing system.

The research and development costing group members are listed below.
