Event partner

NHS Improvement and The King's Fund have teamed up to bring you a series of exclusive, free-to-attend events.  

Join us in January to explore how NHS trusts, local health economies and national organisations are using patient-level information and costing (PLICS) to improve planning and delivery of care.

You will learn about changes to mandatory cost collections and have the chance to network with peers from across the country.

Who is this event for?

This event is designed for NHS finance directors in trusts and foundation trusts although it will also be of interest to NHS clinical, operational and transformation leads who contribute to and use patient information to improve care delivery in NHS providers.
