For some years the HEE LKS Leads have provided access to the NHS Costing Framework, developed by Larraine Cooper of the Larrian Consultancy and licenced for use by NHS Library and Knowledge Specialists.

Access to the Costing Framework can be provided to NHS Library and Knowledge staff following training in the use of the resource. This is being delivered through three sessions:

This introductory video podcast , open to all interested parties, provides a background to the concepts of costing . Familiarity with these concepts is assumed in the other two sessions and it is therefore essential that colleagues view this podcast before booking on the webinars below.
